Guns are illegal on probably most parts of the Trail, especially
concealed however, who exactly is going to come to your aid when 3
drunk rednecks are sitting in a shelter with loaded weapons? Mr. Police
Man? Grab your trusy cell-phone and give 'em a call, I'm sure they'll
be there toot sweet! I don't think so. I certainly don't believe that
guns are the answer all the time and probably not even most of the time.
Often they can actually make a bad situation worse. Talk your way out,
leave the area, but as a last resort in life or death situations I can't
see a better solution. I welcome comments from the group.
