Just kidding, I am not seriously considering carrying in a hotel waterpark...but something got me thinking: Earlier today, I had to go to the Gaylord Texan Convention Center. I knew I was only gonna be there for a few minutes, so I decided to take my 4 1/2 year old to their waterpark for some fun after I did what I needed to do at the convention center. The Gaylord Texan has a Lazy River and a slide...its not that big of a deal, but she enjoyed it nevertheless. The scenery was pleasant, but thats another story. Anywho, I left my LCP in the truck, hidden, but my truck was within sight. In order to take everything in, I used a backpack and the person checking credentials to get in wanted to check the contents of my backpack. I thought about the Wal-Mart threads here at GT, giggled, and told the guy knock yourself out, take a peek. I was actually amused by him looking thru my backpack. I was wearing shorts and flip flops, but I could have taken any number of firearms into their little park. There were no metal detectors or persons handing out frisks like the TSA. Pretty sure that legally I could have done so and was in the right. (Feel free to correct me if I am wrong) Also kinda wonder what would have happened if I had carried in my backpack and he found it. I guess my question and point is this: What did they actually accomplish by searching my backpack? Nothing? Making the sheep feel safe? It was pointless IMO, but I guess the masses want to feel like they are secure and something is being done to protect them. Normally, I would not have even given it a second thought, but now that I have a CCP...things seem different? Thoughts? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
