    Copy & paste the link - this is about Meleanie Hain, the lady who open-carried at a kids' soccer-match (where it was legal and had her concealed-carry permit revoked by the sheriff).

    But if it's for the children!
    Considering how often the question of "which .22lr is best?" gets asked, I figured I'd put my answer in the sig line. CZech 'em out.

    As usual, there are more qualifiers necessary than words in that question.

    - Which people?
    - Which children? How are children defined?
    - What constitutes "around"?
    - Does an internal answer of "some people" mean the answer to the question is "Yes," or does "(only) some people" mean the answer is "No"?
    - (etc, etc.)

    "Do you, or do you not, favor greater safety for our precious children?"

    "Of course, I do, but what do you mean by --"

    "Your answer has been recorded. Thank you, and goodbye."
