No Judge owners are not thugs. I was talking to a LEO in hinesville ga. I had been watching him for a while out side wally world. He was looking for teen age thugs. He said they have started watching for our Military guys to buy electronics and when they load the car/go back in to get the wife and kids the thugs break into the car. The thugs preferred gun has become the Judge. Shame our guys come home and on payday get watched and attacked by thugs.
The LEO did notice my TCP. Says he loves his. When I asked him how he felt about civilians carrying he was all for it.

Sucks that these creeps are seeking out military guys to steal from.
Maybe one of the military guys will catch them in the act, and take care of business they way it should be taken care of.

Only two policies here.
1. leave the military alone and let them enjoy their RNR
2. shoot to kill anyone how attacks them, one to the head, one to the chest

LEO said they are stationing an officer at each strip mall and major retail shops. Weekends and every military pay day. Most of the guys live on post which means they can not carry. Silly rule. We send them to fight then ban them from being able to carry on post.

A lot of folks don't know that the PX does price matching, just show them the ad.
But yes, thugs in parking lots have been a problem at Fort Benning for many years.
And it has always bothered me that commanders have no problem with soldiers carrying in combat areas, but will quickly deprive them of their Second Amendment Rights as soon as they are back in garrison. As soldiers we surrender too many of our rights in the name of the common good, that it just ticks me off when I see a commander taking away more, because he can.
Ran into an IFOR (US Army) colonel in Sarajevo, who stopped the local PX from selling cigarettes because "my father died of lung cancer". That lasted until I informed the PX regional chief that his customers were all going to the Brit PX because they had cigarettes. I kind of giggled in the background when he told that colonel it was not within his authority to tell the PX what they could or could not sell.

Its not right that armed forces personnel serve their country and are treated this way back home and their commanders above them
stop them from carrying guns, which is their right been an american, they put their lives on the line in combat zones, no matter if they are front line or in the background. God bless them and their families
