Caleb, yer LEO, yeah?




Would yer job be easier if everybody was armed? Is that what you want? Do you see any problems with this particular scenario? Don't you see enough madness as it is? Times that by a billion. Domestic abuse, well, now they're both armed

I'm sorry to disappoint, but there's not really an answer to your first question, due to a hundred variables. For example, I'd much rather walk up to a car or a corner with four concealed carry permit holders, all armed mind you, than a car or corner with four guys with only one holding an illegally obtained gun, and the other three unarmed.

I'd like to add here that I have never once been on the scene of a shooting or a murder where the gun was legal. Hell, guns are pretty much all illegal here, yet people keep getting gunned down.

I might not have all the answers, but I have a fair idea of what doesn't work in my town, at least: Letting only those who don't care about legality to be armed.

I spend a lot of time in Chicago, its a hellhole. Strict gun laws there but there's murders every night. It's busy and it's not even summer yet.

Poncho,

Something further. I'm not great at much, but I am pretty adept at handling domestic scenes. The thing is, in my experience, law abiding citizens are just that, gun owners included. I've never had any issues on domestics with legal gun owners.

All these numbers are screwed by mixing suicides in with homicides.

Also, I am not special. Im all for the public having the right to own whatever fire power I am allowed to own. The concept of government only weapons or ammo puts me ill at ease.

My idea of "madness" is all the criminals armed, while the good folks are at their mercy.

I want to add, that "report" is biased the source itself is highly suspect, and as the wise man once said ---

There are lies, damn lies, and statistics.

Sometimes when you guys disagree with somebody, you label them communist and offer airfare to move. Now, I'm not a communist, and I'd rather not move, being a patriot and all, but


Do me a favor, when you get yer way, and we're stuck living in a psychotic police state with armed guards everywhere, er, if it's not too late, hook me up, so I can move somewhere peaceful and free


The thought of raising children in an armed school environment repulses me

Step 1: Post press release of a study conducted by a group which favors gun control

Step 2: Back it up with a YouTube clip of a dead comedian who admits he did lots & lots of drugs

Step 3: Get butthurt when anyone disagrees with his ridiculous premise

Step 4: Abandon thread

Yep, sounds like a typical allbusinessjoe thread
