+1 with you on having carried a firearm for work and recreation both, for most of my life - and yet have not ever "forgotten" I was carrying, not once and I am fairly severe ADHD.
So, if my distracted and forgetful blockhead can always remember when I am armed, pretty much anyone can.
Bearing weapons is both a God given right AND an incredibly serious responsibility as well.
I really resent those US Residents who have reckless disregard on this subject, including people who supposedly "forget" they are carrying and try to board a commercial airplane.
Our particularly self absorbed/self serving Government and it's evil right hand, the US Supreme Court, are just gagging for an excuse to re-configure our Constitution.
People violating the US and International Laws of Commercial Air Travel, corrupt as those laws may be are unwittingly helping to supply those bullies with all the statistics they need to beat us down thoroughly, when the Bigshots in Washington feel the time is right.
The old saying: "Those who don't bother to learn history are doomed to re-live it" is valid here.
Problem is - I do not wish to join their dumbasses when they get our rights revoked one of these days.
I think it was Patrick Henry that said: "But don't get me started".
Don't think for a minute that I believe you can forget that
You are carrying a gun, I'm saying you get used to it being on you. I get up in the morning and brush my teeth, comb my hair and verify a round in the chamber before I slip my pistola into the holster. My ammo issues were as Sierraone states dumbass!
I had no intention of ever getting on a plane from Wyoming until the SHTF in Houston. But on the other side of the fence there are a lot of gals I know down here that their husband or dad has stuck a .380 in their purse or whatever and they have done nothing but thrown chewing gum and makeup on top of it for years before they fly somewhere. I put a Glock 23 and a surefire in my ex wife's truck for her. She drove onto White SandsMissile Range forgetting it was there. I got it handled but the ass chewing I dished out was tremendous. Prolly a good reason I'm sittin in Texas readin this forum by my self!lol.
