    Thanks for the sig line. I am being profiled in our company newsletter and I recieved the following email:

    In light of recent events (at VA Tech), we thought perhaps you may want to edit your response to the following question:
    Any hobbies and/or volunteer activities?
    "I enjoy shooting rifles and handguns for pleasure."
    It's totally up to you but we wanted to bring this to your attention! Thanks.

    My Response:

    No changes necessary. Unfortunately, the students/faculty of VA Tech were disarmed by their school administration and couldn't fight back by exercising their 2nd Amendment rights as guaranteed by the Bill of Rights in the US Constitution.
    "To my mind it is wholly irresponsible to go into the world incapable of preventing violence, injury, crime, and death. How feeble is the mindset to accept defenselessness. How unnatural. How cheap. How cowardly. How pathetic." --- Ted Nugent
    I shoot regularly so that I can protect my family/friends if needed. That would be the only addition you might want to add.

    The response:

    Wow. I understand. My father is a retired police officer. I was raised with guns in the house, respected them of course. I think he still sleeps with his under the bed.
    I'll leave your response as is and add that line for you.


    [touchdown]I expected a different response, but like the outcome.

    yes, but we are strictly disarmed while in the office so one must maintain operational security at all times!
