    It is not unusual at all for people to carry guns in this area. It wouldn't shock or scare me at all if I saw a gun in someone's purse.

    Also it doesn't' shock me or scare me that someone might have one on them, i think plenty of harmless people carry. I just don't agree with the practice.

    I would not personally carry a gun. That said, I know people both from NY and here that carry guns. I would not think it was hugely unusual to see someone with a gun on their person. Most people that I know that have guns though keep them locked up at home.

    Concealed Carry is definitely pretty unusual for NY....very small percentage, VERY small are actually granted a permit.

    I guess I just run with the wrong (right?) crowd. I don't know anyone who carries a gun on them "just because."

    I have a lot of friends and family that carry concealed. If you met them you would never ever know they were carrying. They want their weapons concealed and hide them very well. The girl I run with carries at all times, she wears compression shorts that have a pocket in the back. It is not something unusual here. I have never thought of it as scarey. But then again I dont consider guns scarey as they are something I grew up with and was always taught that guns in responsible hands are okay

    I just don't get this notion that it's OK to follow someone, with a gun no less, and confront them just because you don't think they should be walking in your neighborhood. If it's a gated community, then you call your security detail; if not, and if you don't see a crime being committed* then what's the problem? *Last I checked it's still legal to wear a hoodie while being black, even in Florida.

    There's about 6 or 7 units on my block that I could tell you for sure who lives in them, could identify the people as living on my block. The rest of the units & homes, I have no idea who lives in them, and I have no idea if most of the people I see live here or not. We have people walking through day & night on their way to & from Golden Gate Park, to & from bars and restaurants and shops, people visiting family & friends, people renting out their places when they're on vacation. I can't imagine following someone just because I thought they didn't belong.


    And sorry for the long edit, not sure why PG.org felt the need to post when I just hit "enter" for a new paragraph...

    Oh, on a side note, what do we think of one of the jurors announcing a book deal within like 48 hours of the verdict?

    Either do I Stacey. Grabbing and loading your gun because someone is out taking a walk in your neighborhood is NOT normal.

    Apparently she's rescinded her statement and will not be writing a book. It's sick and should be illegal IMO for people who serve on a jury to profit from it. If they are in the jury box thinking about what will make a better/more profitable book deal for them justice is 100% compromised IMO. Disgusting
