Giving Rides to Strangers (and guarding against physical attack)

mmm, forget cupholders, how about gunholders?:tongue:

i totally profiled here, but never would of guessed so many of you were carrying concealed weapons!

as for my opinion, stranger danger, is blown up out of proportion, especially by the media. every incident that happens gets replayed hundreds if not thousands of times, in various media settings, spinning fear and spreading doubts. i am concerned about this as it directly affects the children of the upcoming generations, and really do not care much either way over hitchhikers, tesla thumbers.

kids need to walk places, run places, play in the woods.

nature deficit disorder. sad, but true.



I play a nice person on twitter.

To be clear, just because someone has a CCW permit, doesn't mean they use it on a daily basis. Mine has only been used on the rare occasion where I'm out hiking/horseback riding in extremely remote areas. Calling 911 doesn't work so well in those situations. When at home, I have three dogs who bark at anything that moves.
