Given the propensity of every thread with even a tangential reference to projectiles to become a call to arms, a gun in every hand seems to be the solution to all of the worlds problems.
There has got to be something wrong with a collective psyche so fear driven that it feel safe behind a gun only. When everyone has a gun, then what? Do you think that this crazy man would have been shot full of holes by gun toting citizens before he had a chance to mow them down?
This discussion would have been more appropriate for the Dallas thread, no? A crazy man on foot is a better target than one in a bomb laden moving target.
If a bunch of the BLM demonstrators had license's to carry, would those 5 brave men still be alive? In fact, why did no one suggest this solution in that Dallas situation? It is far more likely that if BLM citizens had legal guns they might have been able to successfully engage the Dallas madman, don't you think? You know man on foot vs man in a speeding truck.
Maybe it not such a bad idea to push this gun agenda at every turn. You are maybe picturing men in Boise Idaho openly and legally toting rifles, hand guns and semi automatics but not men in Brooklyn NY, Dallas TX, and Detroit MI? The sight of "them" with legal shouldered rifles and holstered guns walking around will scare the sh!t out of people.
When no contrivance is found to restrict 2nd Amendments rights to certain demographics, the age of gun control for all will, of necessity, dawn.
