WHY would anyone take a gun

WHY would anyone take a gun into a day-care facility? What are you going to fight over, sippy cups?

Business deal. Uh huh.

The man has a right to carry

The man has a right to carry firearms on his property and/or carry anywhere else permitted with a cwp. It is his constitutional right.....for now.
