Lots of guns = reason to be polite

You spent three pages on Wednesday (the 7th) with discussions concerning people carrying handguns.

I struggled through most of it and learned one important fact. Our sheriff said that he has issued 1,165 concealed handgun licenses (CHL). He did not venture an estimate about how many other Baker County residents might carry a gun without a license.  

These are scary figures. I have now decided that I will not offend anyone. They might be carrying a gun. That means no political discussions with strangers. And it means that I may make some effort to be nice to people. That would be a good idea for many of your readers.
