Nice article
Maybe this idea can be taken a step further: "What if everyone packed a weapon with them at all times?"

It's kind of hard to see a safer world with more liberty and freedom, when the citizenry is constantly thinking about watching the strangers around them----because they have guns too.

I've been well aware of the fact that humans are irrational. That fact, in and of itself, underscores why rational, reasoned, fact-based arguments do not and will not change the minds of people. Belief structure, key word being "belief", are extremely difficult if not impossible to change.

We need only look at the difference between the Austrian school, the Chicago school and behavioral economics to see how irrational people really are.

This does not mean that you arguments do not have merit, they do. What it does mean is that changing people's minds is almost impossible because they aren't using their reasoning centers.
Hello lonely bird,
I agree but try not to look at as an impossible mountain. Combating belief is extremely difficult but that doesn't mean that they can't be combatted in a different way. It simply means that what has been utilized so far hasn't brought about the change needed. They need to feel better in their skin and if they are in an Adrenaline state they that is what needs to be addressed. The belief of "gun good" came earlier than even religious belief. So it is to make them feel safer and not need the guns. If the gov says "no more" thousands of people will end up dying as soon as someone walks down the street to collect them.
Thanks for your input.

Good luck out there
