So, to pull or show a gun stopped your bad situation, marvelous, what? did someone threaten to beat your ass? Oh, that's a good reason to pull a gun on someone. Isn't that what happened with Zimmerman in Florida, a stand your ground thing? poor, just poor.
Stats have ceased to exist since around 2010 or maybe before that, I think PEW research stopped doing it because congress cut funding for it.
Only a person who needs a gun carries a gun.
This LA Times article pretty much lays it out, good guys w/guns vs bad guys w/guns,
"Oddly, given these combined statistics, nearly half of gun owners say they keep weapons because it makes them feel safer, a proportion that has increased dramatically since 1999 even though violent crime has been in a steady decline."
No, we do not need guns in classrooms. We do not need more people carrying guns. Both are very bad ideas.
The details of my personal situation don't matter. I told you that something happened, but having my firearm stopped the situation. No one got hurt, so it's a win. I didn't say anything about "someone threatening to kick my ass". Be careful, you just may be showing a bit of insecurity yourself. You can say it's "poor", as I'm not really sure what you mean by that. But how do you know? You have no details and I'm not going to share them. It could have been a robbery, a car jacking, a whatever. Why does your mind automatically go to, "oh, they were just wanting to kick their ass." You are just making stuff up again. Once again, your fixed, uninformed, and fictitious opinion is taking over in your response. Open your mind just a bit. Learn about what you're speaking on. It's not a bad thing to hear others out and learn from it.
You say "stats have ceased to exist since 2010 or before"............. What? Now you're just blatantly ignoring facts. That's where things get dangerous. That's how we end up with a White House full of criminals. I just gave you an entire unbiased research dedicated to this exact topic from 2015, AND went ahead and pasted a quote from it, AND put it in bold.
Where are you getting this information that statistics just.....stop? Here it is again. Please don't just ignore it or say that it isn't real this time.... Once again....Bullet point #7 summarizes this exact discussion.
You said concealed carriers never are there to stop the bad guy. I 100% proved you wrong by providing a very, very, very small sample of proof. No response back from you on that.
You said that I couldn't show proof and stats. I 100% proved you wrong by delivered statistics, research, and a few news stories on the topic. No response back from you on that.
How many times do I have to ask you this one simple question:
What would you do if you were in this exact situation? Locked down in a classroom/gas station/grocery store/whatever, when a gunman came in and was slowly picking people off. Now say a genie appeared and offered you a firearm. Would you accept the firearm or not?
It's getting very obvious that you're afraid to answer the question. I think it's because you may, just maybe, see my point in the question. Scary right? To think about something in more than just your point of view. That is called growth. We would get absolutely nowhere if everyone was close minded about everything. For instance, I am a ccw that also wants stricter gun laws, banning certain firearms, etc.
Since you seem to not want to acknowledge that I proved you wrong or answer direct questions to anything, I'll make it straight forward. Go ahead and Ignore all the above. Please respond back to:
The one question I've now asked you three times. (you oddly forgot to answer that 3 times in a row)
You asked me to PROVE that firearm carriers are sometimes there at the right time. So I did. (you said there was none)
The statistics I provided on concealed carriers. You asked me to PROVE this with statistics, so I did. And yet, your only response is that it doesn't exist? Nope. It does. You're wrong. You can't just deny it because you don't like it.
