    If everyone has a gun, then you're not the superior force anymore.. thus negating your bravado above. If no one has a gun, then the play field is once again even... but with far less chance of someone dying.

    I think the argument is quite clear. Since they could have guns, it is best if no one did.

    Umm...no. Here's my argument: having a gun does not make you immune to being hurt in a crime. Learn to read.

    Is that really an argument, or some kind of insightful observation. Is that what you want to own instead? Fine.

    regardless of hate crime status, these people who beat and robbed him should be pursued vigorously. However, the hate crime part does require separate investigation. These 4 people will have to belong to a group that targets whites only in their crimes. Otherwise, it's just bunch of nasties who spills racial slurs during whatever crime they commit to any target they come across simply because they are in the majority.

    Considering that is what he originally wrote without your misinterpretation I would guess that would be what he would want to own. Theplaydrive never wrote a damn thing about anyone not being able to own guns just the fact that it doesn't make you invisible. My apologies playdrive if I too misunderstand.

    That's not just what I want to own - that's what I said. You're being ridiculous. Just admit that you read into my comment instead of taking it for what it was - it's easier than looking stupid.

    The guy appears to be a Goth, and was possibly dressed funny and had silly piercings. I bet that was part of the motivation for the attack.

    That wasn't my point. I was simply highlighting the foolishness of the whole gun society crap I see often presented. "If that were me, and I had my *insert gun type here*, I would have killed them all!" But, in a society where everyone is carrying gun or could easily get a gun, there would be no situation where you are the only person with a gun. The bravado displayed is only contingent on the idea that the people you're up against is not armed as well.

    So it sounds as if you're only for gun toting if it's only you with the firearm, but it all likelyhood, that wouldn't be case. So it's basically a fantasy.

    And personally, I do not think more guns on the street is a good thing. Most beatdowns you can walk away from with minor cuts and bruises. Most gunfights, someone going to die or be terribly wounded. I'd prefer the latter.
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.

    Same rule would apply for a black man with 4 white dudes, hispanic dude with 4 blacks, doesn't matter. 4 on 1 isn't a fight, it's survival.
    I don't agree with you on much, but I do agree here. Let me add that it's not only about survival, but also a chance to "take out the trash".
