Ignorance may be bliss, but it's not a suitable replacement for an actual point.

When it comes to the crowbar, or any of my tools for that matter, they are bought and paid for and have legitimate purposes. It shouldn't require having some elite status such as being "around a 911 center" (yes, I know how the system is rigged) in order to escape persecution.

By the same token, because the system is rigged, and favors a select few, leaving the rest of us at the mercy of the whim of a police system that has been given too much power, that is an excellent example of why gun owners (or any other group that's a target for profiling) shouldn't have any more special labels attached to their names. Breaking the system afurther is not a solution to anything.

Oh, I'm pretty sure it also applies to those who are illegally accused as well.
