    Well, that's you. I'm talking about the average gun toting citizen, though. Everyone handles stress differently.

    Arming the population is how you prevent having to fight for you life, because an armed population is a very strong deterrence.

    Not that I have room to talk because I haven't mentioned the victims yet either.
    That's what the RIP tag is for. OP didn't use the RIP tag, so we're free to skip the fluff and lip-service and jump right to the meat of the issue.

    I know what the RIP tag is for. However, one shouldn't have to use a RIP tag to show sympathy to the victims before jumping right into the politicizing.

    Turtle was originally speaking about the average gun-toting citizen in the first place before folks started trying to pick his statements apart.

    The average gun-toting citizen handles combat-stress a lot better than a cop.

    That's what Turtle's original statement was.

    Why is this a gun thread instead a crazy people thread. Thanks to guns it wasn't water? It's fortunate the psycho didn't blame/kill more people.

    It's not difficult to kill an unsuspecting victim, means is irrelevant.

    The cops kept it from potentially getting totally out of hand, and barely injured anyone; I say good work, next story.

    I'm not talking about forum policy. I don't give a **** about forum policy. I'm talking about being a human being. Obviously, that's a foreign concept to you.
