    but what I'm trying to say is that perfectly healthy and normal people can snap under unknown circumstances. I applaud that you and your friends would stop carrying if you felt that lack of control, but there's no way to know when it's going to happen. Remember the movie "Falling Down?"

    Here in Georgia, one can carry concealed into bars. I don't have the statistics, but I bet more murders are committed by drunks than sober people.

    I'll take down the HR, but I am really, really upset about the wide brush being applied to the mentally ill around here, where people really should know better.

    It's not just a zip code, it's an attitude.

      There are folks up here yesterday & today defining the term "mentally ill" as "owns guns." I didn't take this diarist as one of them.
