Son of Butch posted this on another thread. To avoid tainting a pleasant thread about Andrew's vacation, I brought the post here:

Imagine that... no feeling the need to pull a gun, by getting scared because someone walked past you on the way to
their car. By reading comments from some posters on here you'd think you would have to be extra lucky not to have
at least 1 family member shot or attacked when visiting America for more than a week
I worked with a man who claims he packed his Colt Government .45 ACP even when he mowed the grass. He was a wild sort with a big shaggy unkempt beard and big belly hanging over the family jewels. I always pictured him with no shirt, sweat streaming down his face, big belly riding his pants over, pushing a lawn mower and a Colt Government .45 ACP buried under his love handles.
If you need to throw up, I understand.
