Smart vs Legal
« on: July 06, 2015, 05:13:49 PM »
Just because something is "legal"doesn't make it smart.

It legal to put my hand on the stove burner but not smart. I shouldn't do it then call someone expecting them to "fix it" cause I pay my money to pay their salaries.
It's legal for me to drive across my yard but not smart because with all the rain we have had I will get stuck. I shouldn't do it then need to call someone to pay extra money to fix my silliness.
It's legal for me to yell "bad word" in church but not smart. It will draw unwanted attention and I shouldn't feel like I should be defended after I call someone just because I feel empowered with attention and legality.

I carry to protect me and mine. I don't feel empowered as I'm the danger not the tool. Bravado is not a character trait of quality. The most powerful weapon I will ever have is my brain.  

Exit soap box stage right.

Generally agree, but not sure if you're trying to imply that a particular activity is legal but not smart?

Nope just saying I have seen many things over time where the question shouldn't be "is it legal?" but should be asking first "is it smart?"

I thought you were leading up to the issue of open carry vs concealed carry.

Nope I choose not to open carry except during duty, training and hunting however I helped push for it in my state and my son open carries. It's your choice.
I just see a lot of questions of wanting to do this or that when the first question should be "is this smart?" rather than "is this legal?"
Gray matter over ego
