    Sounds like sending his whole department through sensitivity training wouldn't be a bad idea, either

    I think it's too late for that; they should all be disarmed...take away their tasers, too.

I am pretty sure lots of crimes happen outside of gun buster areas, and many of those crimes also happen in areas legal to carry, yet we have to wait around for the police when we have all these gun owners out there claiming to be great heroes saving us all from crime. Seems to me that the police actually do that job, while gun owners run for the hills like everyone else. Even in most cases where we hear of a gun owner actually stopping a criminal it is often in their own home when they were in trouble. I am not saying gun owners should have to save people because i know a person who fearsd walking around without being more armed than the people around them certainly is not going to engage an equally armed person if flight is an option. However, it would be nice if we all did not have to hear how heroic gun owners are and how they are thwarting crime when they are less likely to be there for you than the police. It just seems like an obvious point that crime would not be stopped if there were a lot more gun owners. You would just be more likely to get pissed because a person who might have been able to help you with their firearm runs away like everyone else. It would be nice if the rhetoric wasn't contradicted by the reality that gun owners run away like everyone else, and fleeing in a panic is not a terribly good deterrent to crime.
    Your reality doesn't equal reality. I don't recall signing a waiver when applying for a concealed carry license that I would rush out to defend the unarmed, who by the way is either unarmed by choice or does not qualify for a license, upon seeing an armed conflict or a maniac dressed like batman shooting up a theater. If you want that to happen then by all means do it yourself or STFU.

    Another thing you failed to stop and think about is that if every law abiding citizen who legally carried a gun ran to the scene of a shooting they would place themselves in great danger of being shot by the police. A concealed carry permit doesn't give the possessor the right to act as a police officer.

    Your lack of logic is dictated by your emotion, which is miserably flawed.

    In an interesting twist:

    Greenville Wal-Mart Shooter Picked Victims By Race

    The article doesn't state if he will be charged with hate crimes. Jessie, Al .... where are ya to lend a voice to those who were shot by a racists and possibly injured for the rest of their lives? Oh, the victims were white and the assailant black.... nevermind.
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
