If you CCW, you can't see your junk

This priceless comment to Gail Collins' article in the NYT entitled "Pity the Poor Gun Lobby." came from Dean Hewitt of Sarasota Florida...

EXCERPT - regarding those who CCW

“The other main group is the masculine tribe who have gone to seed. Yeah that group who hasn't seen their own junk in twenty years with out the help of a mirror. They may have been in the military, maybe once been an avid hunter but I believe worried they no longer have it to protect themselves or project the proper image. They want the gun to feel like a man.”

1) I can see my junk.

2) If this guy made such an offensive comment regarding a minority, gay person or religion, his comment would have been blacklisted.

3) The Times asks for thoughtful and well written comments that add to the value of civil discourse. Nice to see it in action, huh?

4) Interesting to note that many, many of the comments regarding the shooting of Trayvon Martin on GT condemn the tragedy, think Zimmerman was a tool, or at the very least, think something smells bad about the whole thing. There are thoughtful and critically thinking gun owners here. Shame the same thing can't be said about those who comment in The Times. If you read the rest of the comments, they're all just as bad.

And no, you can't comment. They closed it earlier than usual. Probably didn't want any alternate points of view!

I don't carry so I can be a man; rather, I am a man, so I carry.

I choose to carry to protect myself and/or others. Luck favors the prepared.

I carry because I came to the conclusion that no one but family has my best interests in mind. I think of it as pro-active life insurance. The Family Plan.

I guess that means I carry a gun because I want to be a man?



I'm sure glad Lib Land is full of really smart people that have everything and everyone figured out.

I believe that it's a man's role to protect his family and castle. Let's face facts. We aren't any safer today than they were back in the wild west days. The law still shows up after the fact. Being a man is being strong and prepared to handle it. I guess the guy that posted that comment thinks you're more of a man if you are passive and unarmed. Carrying hasn't made my junk disappear from sight.

What Frued actually said about weapons was that a fear of weapons is a sign of emotional and sexual immaturity. I for one, and tired of the lying leftists impunging my manhood because I like guns. Let them go to the 'Hood and tell some street gangsta' that he only carrys a gun because he has no manhood and see what happens to the leftist. BWA HA HA HA.

We need to ask the leftists what they want to do to us that makes them so afraid for us to be armed. Whatever it is, it cannot be good.

Wrong thread, sorry.

I disagree with them so they must have smaller genitals.

Depends on the size of your junk. Mine is visible....

Mr. Hewitt has obviously never heard, "A good man builds a roof over his tools."
