Been a gun owner longer than an RV owner, It's everyones choice to have one or not,both cases I might add!
You carry insurance on your rig, insurance on your life and health, even a fire extinguisher to put out a fire,,,,,so if you choose to carry a firearm for you and your families protection go for it. I see it no different than the others mentioned. If you decide to own and carry a weapon, learn to use it and care for it responsibly.
I've always practiced the Don't ask,Don't tell attitude as to whether or not I have a friend along for the ride.
As with everything else there are responsible gun owners and careless ones but I believe the responsible owners outweigh the careless.
Just my thoughts.

Makes me think.

How could you ever drive an RV? What about the child that runs into the street and you can't stop that big rig in time? How about that innocent child sleeping in bed when the steering suddenly goes out on that RV of yours and slams into his bedroom? How about that innocent jaywalker that you didn't see, darting across the street to save a half a minute it would take to go to the crosswalk? Really, what are the numbers? How many people have been victimized by inattentive drivers killing innocent people? Does it warrant the risks? What happens when an RV is stolen and driven by an inexperienced young thief just joyriding in your $300,000 motor home? Who is responsible for the carnage because you allowed your MH to be stolen? My goodness I could never allow anyone to own an RV or car. Just look at the number of innocent people killed each year by reckless drivers. Look at the amount of money we spend on people injured by reckless (pun intended) driving. We need a law!

I didn't want to turn this into something personal but comments like the one above is why we look at americans the way we do. This whole gun thing makes me laugh,i simply put out that i didn't feel that the RV'ing in Canada And the USA warranted bringing along the old six-shooter,i personally DiD NOT say that any of you shouldn't be allowed to be armed however the murder's by handguns in the US must be high for some reason,your kids are walking into walmart and buying ammo to assasinate their schoolmates for some reason,your country has more un-regestered hand guns than any other for some reason, personally what you do in your own country is your buisness i'd just hate to sitting next to you in a campground when one of you take it upon yourselves to be judge,jury and executioner ten feet away from me and mine because frankly just because you hold a licence doesn't make you a seasoned expert.

I guess this could be considered hijacking but I have a question.
Why is it that so many seem to get so much enjoyment out of degrading and insulting one another?

Just remember. It only takes one time. Protection is protection. Why buy insurance?

I fail to see where the murder rate has anything to do with how responsible gun owners act. Sounds like a poor stereotype if you ask me.

NOR does it have anything directly to do with this thread topic...

I totally agree with MPI Mallard. He said that because of our views, the Canadians look down on Americans.

It's clear that this thread has run it's course as there too many off topic posts and too many posts not in compliance with our Mission Statement or Rules.

Let's move on.

Thanks.
