    When I was shopping for gun grips for my M9 and came across the following picture:

    Do you think that the Square and Compasses belong on a gun? I have conflicted feelings about it (see my blog) but was wondering what some of the brothers here thought.

    Texas Penal Code §46.15 states nonapplicability for unlawfully carrying a weapon if the person is "traveling". Up until recently the legal definition of "traveling" had always been a mystery. Perhaps masonic grips are very fitting in Texas ;)

    They look nice. I don't have a problem with them. Texas history has seen alot of Masons carrying gun.

    The question wasn't about Masons carrying guns it was about the square and compasses being on a gun itself. To me it seems contradictory, but I maybe reading too much into it

    Samuel Colt was a mason, btw.

    I see no contradiction. I suppose it depends greatly upon your attitude toward guns.

    We made the WM laugh and used a display grenade instead of a sword one time.

    I don't have a problem with it. Firearms are not necessarly immoral or illegal.

    Yep I sure do, as a masson we should be and are (in my openion) obligated to protect and defend those who need and deserve our protection. The massonic symbol says I am a man of honnor, a man of comittment and a man of courage.

    There is much moral responsibility required in carrying a gun, even during war. Let it be a reminder to your obligations.

    When I think of guns, the first descriptive words that come to mind are: sporting & defense. I just don't have a negative perception of guns, so I would be completely fine with seeing the square and compass displayed on a firearm.

    But, I guess it just depends on one's individual feeling toward guns.
