Showing someone a gun is the best way to show them that you're serious and that you should be recognized.

I've lost track of how many confrontations I've walked away from and later thought: If I'd had a gun, that guy would have known how serious I was then.

i think what these gun wielders don't seem to think through is that once they bring a gun into things everyone else is suddenly taking things far more seriously than the gun brandisher is or ever imagined they would and things don't go as planned. unless of course they're sociopaths and just start shooting but that's another story

Just look at all the concealed carry permit holders in Lawrence that have gotten into Wild West shootouts over parking places since concealed carry was legalized... Oh, wait, that doesn't seem to have happened. Never mind. Have a good time storming the castle.

The Douglas County judicial system seems to be rather tolerant regarding weed, but as strict as Johnson County when it comes to guns.

I think that accurately reflects the sentiment of the potential juror pool.
