Doctors have a guiding principle: “First, do no harm.” Their most important job is to not cause more damage. “Given an existing problem, it may be better not to do something, or even to do nothing, than to risk causing more harm than good.” This is a good life principle…

… Far too many of my fellow gun rights supporters don’t understand this principle. One particular type likes to dress in garish clothing, grab a weapon and run toward the nearest camera whenever they see an opportunity to “support gun rights”. These gun owners don’t help the situation; instead, they only manage to show the entire world they’re nothing more than poorly or completely untrained attention whores.

Semi-retired like Vito Corleone before the heart attack. Consiglieri to J.Kb and AWA. I lived in a Gun Control Paradise: It sucked and got people killed. I do believe that Freedom scares the political elites.

One thought on “The Duty to Not Make S**t Worse ”
  1. The open carry folk Chris speaks of are a great example of “just because you can, doesn’t mean you should…”

    OC is a great thing and should be done with care and discretion. Self-restraint and self-policing will go a long way. The movie industry is a great example of this. For the longest time, there was no formalized content rating system. With the perceived threat of government regulation, the movie industry got it’s act together and established the MPAA rating system. Sure, the system has flaws and it’s not well-loved, but it beats the pants out of the Feds censoring or establishing their own rating system.

    As “POTG”, we have to police our own.
