    what about the use of a misdirected handgun, where the bullet finds an innocent bystander rather than the intended perp?

    I've never had that problem - in the past when I've been in situations no one else is around and a gun would have been nice rather than mace or a key.

    If some guys weren't compulsive control ****heads this wouldn't even be a discussion.

    If there is an innocent bystander within range of the typical small handgun to be hit by a missed shot....shame on them for not helping out, preventing the need for that gun in the first place.

    I mean, i get your point, not all bullets find their targets. But we are talking about hand guns that fit in a purse. Something with an effective range of about 50 yards. First of all, most rapists are not going to target and act in an area where there would BE an innocent bystander, for fear of interference or "being made" in a line up. Think...large empty parking lots, inside of a house/apt, or deserted park of some kind.

    There is, and always will be a CHANCE that someone not involved could take a bullet. By they are no MORE innocent than the women who was about to be violently raped.

    good for you. But your not wanting one shouldn't preclude someone who does.

    Re: South Carolina sheriff tells women to carry concealed firearms

    Honestly, for me at the moment, I am not going to carry a gun until I become more comfortable with handling one. Despite being in the military, I have only ever shot a real firearm once, and it was actually on private property with a boyfriend about 12 years ago. I haven't actually fired a government owned/issued weapon. We had laser rifles in basic when I went through because they were building a new firing range at the time.

    I do agree with the sheriff, for the most part. I just think that the woman, and anyone really, needs to feel comfortable with the gun before she (whoever) carries it. But getting the CCP would be a good idea to get done just to get the time in to get used to it, whether they carry it everywhere or not.

    It's most certainly a personal decision and should only be made if the person is comfortable enough. . . absolutely.

    my bad
    i did not realize that crime would always occur where there would be no innocent person within the distance a stray bullet could be fired
    i defer to your assurance that can not happen
