    I have a friend who has a permit to carry and I can see the change when he does
    without his gun he is rather timid
    just how much does having a gun change one's personality?

    It's one step on the corrupting road to power.

    Nothing like lumping all gun owners together.

    Keep those stereotypes coming.

    There is no blanket answer to this. Every person is different.

    I would guess your friend feels more confident - if he is that timid. I am not sure that is a bad thing.

    Doesn't change mine. I know who I am, why I carry. I am not seeking to harm anyone unless they give me a legit reason.

    I have much respect for guns and a healthy fear as I have stated.

    Yes.....without a super soaker in your hand you're just your usual cowardly self.

    I challenge you to a duel. Super soakers at 10 paces. Then you'll who what war is really about. It will be a .....water.....bath.

    I tried to research this and didn't succeed. The studies on gun ownership and personality changes focus on the dangers when gun owners age and become susceptible to dementia. Dementia in some neurological disorders can express itself in paranoia, REM-sleep dreams that activate physical violence as the systems that render us paralyzed during REM-sleep fail (eg in Parkinson's disease); hallucinations and deep depression. Keep an eye on your elders around guns, and on yourself, as they and you age.

    But don't be paranoid about it. 🙂

    If you allow the general public to have guns you will/do have "problems".

    You must have a big willy. It's the ones with the small willies that need a gun to compensate for their lack of equipment.

    Nice to know you're not a redneck Lemon. Some of your fellow countrymen think it's cool to be packing.
