    How many of you carry a gun as part of your cycling equipment?

    Great job on the posts Bob... I haven't reviewed this thread for awhile, but I'm glad to see that it is still active. The more folks who have the freedom to carry understand that carrying a firearm allows options that defense with a bicycle pump does not, the better. For those whose...

    I can't help but notice the recurring tendency to cite statistical evidence to support both sides of the argument. I'm currently a third year doctoral student at a tier 1 research institute and I teach a master's level statistics course. I can tell you as an expert on the subject; statistical...

    7 years and 294,000+ views... Wow. Although there have been some emotional discussions in this thread, it is difficult to walk away from reading it and not think that culture is a huge part of the disparity between those who are gun tolerant and those who are not. There certainly is no...

    Arizona recently passed a law that allows any citizen to carry concealed without a license. I think we are now one of three states that allow this. If you are a cyclist in Arizona, you can now carry concealed while riding without having to have a license. Gotta love Arizona! :)

    With Sonia Sotomayer coming up for confirmation to the Supreme Court, gun totin cyclists should be up in arms. Here's some text from the Gun Owners of America (which... if you don't belong, you should... excellent organization and much more conservative than the NRA): Obama Picks...

    Loaded firearms leave little margin for error... I'm glad the rider is okay. Thanks for posting this; mistakes serve as a good reminder to those of us who carry with one in the chamber that it doesn't take much of a lapse of judgment for someone to be seriously hurt. Joe

    There are a number of very detailed examples in this tread; you can do a thread search fairly easily (without reading all the posts). Joe NRA Life Member and Gun Owners of America Life Member :)

    it's funny... I remember the day it came and I swear it was like Christmas... almost as good a feeling as the first brand new bicycle I received when I was roughly 12. That's probably the best I can do to explain the sequence of pictures :)

    Hi All, As luck would have it, I'm in Washington DC this week in a political science class for my MBA. I've only been able to discuss the Supreme Court ruling with the Taxi driver who took me to the hotel here in DC, but it was pretty clear that he hadn't given the ruling much thought (which...

    How many of you carry a gun as part of your cycling equipment?

    I'm a bit confused Jeff. You can't take me seriously because I don't post anything related to cycling (this is a bit of a stretch but I'll hang with you for a few sentences) Do a search on this forum for "Americano" and I do indeed believe you'll find some posts that (using your logic) will...

    Spend a few minutes and read Scalia's opinion... I believe you'll have a great indication on why the framers of our Constitution wanted Americans to have the "god given right" to keep and bear arms. I don't understand why you seethe over the freedoms that belong to others... if you don't want...

    How many of you carry a gun as part of your cycling equipment?

    True words indeed... thanks for the feedback. I find it heartning that the highest court in America sided with you and I... and millions of other Americans who always knew that the framers of our consitution meant for each of us to have the individual right to carry a firearm just as we have...

    Actually... it is stupid people that scare me, not bad people. I can predect the things bad people might do, but stupidity is incredibly random, widespread, and unpredictable.

    Yes... Scalia actually answers all your questions below. I think you'll find it quite an incredible document and I would highly recommend everyone who is remotely interested give it a read. Email me if you want me to send it to you... it isn't very large (like 940kb). Joe

    Arizona passed the castle doctrine recently as well... it has indeed been a decent year so far!

    How many of you carry a gun as part of your cycling equipment?

    Hi Jeff, I'm guessing by your response below that you completely disagree with the Supreme Court ruling. I'm not sure what relevance California's gay marriage laws has to this discussion, and I am sure that your question regarding who has actually read the second amendment is rhetorical...

    How many of you carry a gun as part of your cycling equipment?

    It is very nice to have our US Supreme Court solidify the beliefs of many Americans and Constitutional scholars; that the right to keep and bear arms is an INDIVIDUAL right. Now comes the gleeful task of overturning all the states (and DC) laws that limit our individual rights! Today is a...
