Reading this article ("Guns Worn In Open Legal, But Alarm Va.," 7/15/04) about people carrying their guns around in Virginia for some reason made me think of the deposition I attended not too long ago, where the witness proudly took out his gun permit and showed it to the lawyer who was asking the questions.
"Why are you showing me this?" asked the lawyer.
"Because it shows I'm not a felon," said the witness.
"Do you carry a gun?" asked the lawyer.
"All the time," said the witness.
"Do you have it in here with you now?" said the lawyer.
"No, but it's close by," said the witness.
