Re: “Another Stab At

OH NOES! THE HUMANITY! THINK OF THE CHILDREN! So, wait... in many states guns are already allowed in bars as long as they are NOT concealed... where are all these bar shootouts you're talking about??? And anyone old enough to own a hand gun (21 years old, i.e. college seniors, we're talking about grown adults, not your "boys... on their way to English 101") goes through the same emotional ups and downs outside of college as those who want to carry concealed on campus, where are all the blood baths??? Did you even do any research to see how old one has to be to buy a gun??? The only 21 year old college freshmen I know are the guys returning from Iraq who are getting a degree on Uncle Sam's dime for serving their country (with guns! OH NOES!) And where are all these national park crazed killers of which you speak when they're outside of the park? I take a handgun every time I go camping and yet somehow I've managed to NOT shoot anyone yet... maybe my gun is defective...? And how will I know who the crazed killer is? He's probably going to be the guy trying to kill me. But it is against the law for me to pursue him. I have a duty to retreat but I can defend myself and my family while doing so. The fact is, you are projecting your own fears and insecurities on the rest of the America while we go about our daily lives NOT shooting each other. You cite 12,000 gun related deaths per year, what percentage is that of the estimated 2,000,000 defensive uses of firearms each year? I'm not making that number up, it was a government study as 5 minutes on Google would show you. You fear what you might do if you had a gun and your only conclusion is that everyone must feel this way. But the facts simply do not support your theories.
