My doctor warned me not to be taking a stroll in Lawton at night...

Not that it matters to a criminal, but keep in mind that "constitutional" carry also allows them to go armed as well.

criminals have always gone around armed in spite of any gun-control laws, CC gives more good people the incentive to carry, the bad guys now have to face armed law-abiding citizens in respectable numbers

Its real simple and works like this. Take a herd of polled cattle and pour out a sack of feed in a trough. Then get ready for the biggest pushing and shoving match you ever seen as the stronger ones try to bully the others for an extra bite and push the smaller ones out of the way.

Now pour out that same sack of feed for a herd of all horned cattle. Everyone comes to the table real polite like. respectable, eats what is in front of them and leaves.

The pushing, shoving, bullying and BS is gone when everyone in the herd is armed. Even cattle are smart enough to understand It just isn''t worth it for a bite or two.

Reminds me of a late 1990's Dana Lyons song:


We are no longer an unarmed herd of sheeple.

Anyone who plays a lot of poker knows that tempers can flare among players from time to time. A friend in Tulsa told me about attending big games with his father-in-law to watch and learn. Father-in-law attended a monthly game held in a brothel in OKC. He told me everyone at the card table placed a pistol in front of them (Games like these were frequently robbed) and it was the most polite card game he ever attended. An armed society is a polite society.

I don't gamble or frequent brothels or even smoke or drink anymore. A show of lethal force at a gaming table is a bit extreme and cowboy-movie-like. Card cheats should be put in the pokey a while though. I think Johnny Cash gunned down a card cheat in Reno in that Folsom prison song of his.

I have two german shepherd puppies that aren't fully grown yet (almost 8 months) and I find it quite humorous the level of deterrent they are to people in general. Knowing that they are big ol' cuddly teddy bears. But also Glock it up just in case :D
A dog and a gun are a potent self-defense combination. A German Shepherd walking companion is probably a better deterrent from criminal assault than a concealed pistol that comes into play after someone starts an assault. They will choose a victim that doesn't have a dog.

Only people that follow the law comply with the law. CC has no effect on criminals that carried before CC took effect. If they are a felon, CC has no effect, they are still breaking the law.
