Carry a gun or don't, either way all of those concerns are needless worrying.


how do i know i will be protected? answer me again. protect me from a gunshot. everyone else may be carrying and i have no way of knowing.


That kind of paranoid resoning is how people explain haveing to guns for self defence. and lefty biber's your problem now we don't want him.


if no one is allowed to have guns, i have a much calmer mindset and do not need to be on high alert.


Okay, Mexico has a total gun ban since 1971.
They won't grant a gun permit to anyone.

Only one legal gun shop in the entire country.

40,000+ a year in gun deaths.

Have fun.

That's just a variation on the old "if everyone has guns, it'll turn into the wild west" arguments that anti-gun politicians have tried before. It never happens, the wild west never returns.

I don't think I ever said I'd let someone cut up a kid, so I don't really know what that's all about.


no one knows another person's emotional wear. if they are nearing their limit but not there yet, a few setbacks can trigger them but at the moment that you are with them, they are perfectly sane. such that it seems like just another day.

if the person is carrying a gun, they can kill many if they snap.
if the person is carrying a knife, they can be disarmed if they snap.


If if if if if if.

Feel free to link to actual instances of this happening.

That dovetails nicely with my argument that it takes training to do so.

Thanks.

The main area where the U.S. exceeds the firearm violence of other nations is in comparison to other affluent nations. Using the U.N. data, European nations -- even former eastern bloc countries -- typically have rates well below 1 per 100,000, or far less than one-third the frequency seen in the U.S. The pattern is similar in other advanced industrialized nations, such as Canada, Taiwan, Japan, Australia and New Zealand.

One study published in 2011 confirms this finding. The study, published in the Journal of Trauma -- Injury Infection & Critical Care, found that firearm homicide rates were 19.5 times higher in the U.S. than in 23 other "high income" countries studied, using 2003 data. Rates for other types of gun deaths were also higher in the U.S., but by somewhat smaller margins: 5.8 times higher for firearm suicides (even though overall suicide rates were 30 percent lower in the U.S.) and 5.2 times higher for unintentional firearm deaths.


where does mexico lie? how is its enforcement of law? does it function like Canada, Taiwan, Japan, Australia, New Zealand?

Mexico has had a defacto gun ban since 1971. They won't grant permits to anyone.

Only one legal gun shop in the whole country.

40,000 gun deaths a year. That's way more than the US BTW.
