It's a pretty sad society you live in or maybe that's what your little mind glass shatters has convinced you of if you need to carry a gun in public with you. Who else in the world carries concealed, not concealed weapons when in public unless they are trying to be some kind of Paul kersery vigilant off death wish.
There are a shit ton of concealed handgun permit holders you dweeb. There are 40 - let me put that in text for you - FORTY OUT OF FIFTY STATES that are shall-issue. How was looking up "concealed handguns save lives"? Obviously it wasn't too worthy for you, because you decided to grace the forum with this gem. Do you want me to keep embarrassing you with actual statistics as you continue to fart out asinine comments without any proof and just some liberal minded bullshit ideology?
You seem to spend alot of time talking about guns, maybe you just need to have a root and chill out a bit and realize the world isn't that bad that you need to have guns in public.
You mad? You irate? You exasperated? You fuming? You upset? Good. Deal with it.
As far as you saying 'throwing out hypotheticals' guns in public is a recipe for disater.
You seem to be lost. Gun control has no net effect on crime rate
. They are used in defensive measures as much as they are used in criminal acts. And I'm the naive one?
It's something that happens all the time. Two try hard wannabee being real tough with their guns shooting at each other because they think they are actually protecting themselves then some innocent person gets hurt.
Oh really? Were these guns purchased legally? Or are you referring to guns that are stolen or illegally owned used in the majority of these "tough guy" incidents?
I tell you what, when someone walks in a convenience store and attempts to rob the place at 2 AM with a weapon, you can cower there with your powdered donuts and Icee with your hands up as you feel helpless and telling yourself, "This poor lad is just a victim of his upbringing and probably needs the money he is stealing to feed his family. He's a good boy.". I'm just going to find cover or act helpless
until his back is turned, unholster my weapon and put 3 Hornady TAP FPD's in them. You can sit there with your bleeding heart giving him CPR and thank me later.
Even if a innocent person isn't hurt your either Going to be killed, kill someone or off to jail for being a dick and shooting at someone.
If you kill someone in the act of committing a crime against person, that is known as self defense or defense of others and you have every right to do away with such trash. Sheriff's Offices around the country URGE their citizens to carry handguns - LEGALLY.
How much of a deterent is it? Do people even know your carrying?
I don't know, you could have looked this up yourself when I Googled it for you, or you could visit the link in my third response to this bullshit.
Is it really that bad or are you just paranoid from watching too many crime shows and can't tell the difference between reality and virtual reality.
Did I not provide a link already showing that 1 in 131 citizens where I live at is going to be victim of a violent crime? Do you even read? Seriously.
That's what Americans dont understand less guns means less killings, simple maths, take something away less chance off something happening.
That answers my question. You don't read, AND you ABSOLUTELY FUCKING SUCK
at math. You see that underlined thingy? That is a link. You should click it, and actually read the official FBI statistics on the matter. Crime rates have been falling since 2007, and more guns are owned now than ever. The homicide rate is the lowest it has been in 50 fucking years
You do not need guns living in suburbia.
Stand by that last bit, didn't call you a redneck, just said your the typical trying to be a hard nut I carry guns look how tough I am, obnoxious American.
I didn't say you called anyone a redneck. We now go from READING to READING COMPREHENSION.
Do everyone a favor and don't reply. Simply putting words on a screen doesn't make them true. You're full of shit.
