I agree with just about everything that has been said already, what it boils down to for me is common sense. I (being a boy scout at one time in my life) Never leave unprepared. There are many times when I go out that I would never consider carrying a gun... I think of all the potentially bad situations just carrying a gun could put me in. But then again I think of the positive, a 900lb angry moose and me by myself... yeah, I think I would want to have a gun with me. Going urban caching and playing vigalante... uhhh no, I think I would stick to a MacGyver approach for urban caching. Those of us that are gun owners need to be responsible ones that care about others and let those thoughts counduct our actions.
Once the game is over, the king and the pawn go back in the same box.
