They would feel safe if they took advantage of their Bill of Rights.


if you feel safe just because you have a gun you are stupid. carrying a gun makes you less safe.

If you held me in your manly arms and I had a gun but it was unloaded yet the magazine was nearby I'd feel safest of all.

based on what, rodeology? you have zero proof of this. england serves as a prime example to prove the exact opposite of what you claim. stop wasting our time with your ignorant remarks

you're more likely to be killed by a tiger if you have a tiger. you're more likely to be killed by a grenade if you have a grenade. you're more likely to be killed by a gun if you have a gun.

I'm a big proponent of gun rights, but I can say at least from my experience in the UK back in early 2008, the streets there were safer. We walked everywhere, only taking public transportation to reach different cities, and we were out very late at night many times in bad parts of town. It felt a lot safer over there. You're more likely to get stabbed or beaten with a steel pipe over there and that's unlikely unless you go looking for trouble.

i didn't say anything should be taken, i just made a comment on how stupid it is to think you're safer because you have a gun when the opposite is true.

your point fits in with what i'm saying. you're more likely to get in a car wreck if you have a car.

I have a peace lilly sitting on my desk right next to me and I think it is "eyeing" me in a sinister way.

Excuse me, I'm going to throw it out the window.

history tells a different story, and your analogies are childish.

i remember how gun owners in america triumphantly rose up and opposed the bush administration while it lied to them about the reasons to wage war in iraq and systematically stripped them of their civil liberties.

My family and I are safer b/c I own and know how to use weapons. We will not be victims and you shouldn't have to be either. If you choose to not own a firearm, that's your choice. But please do not say that law abiding citizens who chose not to be a statistic are more likely to be killed. That is a farce. People are killed and raped every single day. There is no easy way to offer a solution. But if they chose to arm themselves, then they could in turn defend themselves.

I think the logic could hold statistically but in that logic it would have to be one's own tiger, car, gun, etc. While the # of gun murders and attacks may be high, the #'s for accidental gun injuries are low. Key word accidental, as in self inflicted or inflicting on someone near you without intention. If that is what you mean then I most certainly agree with you, as you can't harm yourself with that which you do not have. I would disagree if you meant that the odds are better of one getting shot by a criminal if they themselves are armed as well.

having a gun does not make you a super hero. if you're going to be killed, you're going to be killed. the only difference is being around gun makes you more likely to be shot by one. your kids are less safe.
