      WELCOME TO THE CASCADECLIMBERS.COM FORUMS   02/03/18

      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Why does everyone get so defensive when someone says they pack a weapon?

 

Because there are many more people who carry guns, get lost in the woods, and need to be rescued, than there are people who don't carry guns and get attacked by man or beast.

I could never understand why people lock their doors at night. I mean, maybe if you have a restraining order out on someone but sheesh. What a fearful society we live in.

Last I checked, accidental killings from over-zealous door locking or password protection were low on the list.

It's weird ... the last time I got a speeding ticket my car wasn't fined. It didn't even have to appear in front of the Judge! Crazy.

I hope you're being facetious.

Whoops, I need to clarify:

 

Because there are many more people who carry guns, get lost in the backcountry, and need to be rescued, than there are people who don't carry guns and get attacked by man or beast in the backcountry.

So your argument is that since it's not likely to happen, then you're wrong to carry a gun in order to prevent it? If so, I gotta admit, that's a stupid argument.

 

If that's not your argument, then what exactly is your point?

Hey, we're just trying to have a little fun around here. Why don't you tell us YOUR version of proper Constitutional law, or self defense strategies?

They should only carry a gun if they are first carrying navigational tools, firstaid kit, headlamp, and other ten essentials.

Let's not confuse the issues, Gary. Although I agree with your statement that you should only carry a gun in the woods if you are carrying the ten essentials as well. I'd take it a step further and say that you shouldn't be going in the woods without the ten essentials, regardless of whether or not you're carrying a gun.

 

I feel safer with a gun. It's great to be American.

pretend to be cooperative with the assailant and look for an opening to deliver a death blow.

Yes we've established that only law-abiding and sane citizens should have guns, so I'm still trying to figure out how you've contributed to our discussion mr mace?
