    Because physics. Humans aren't designed to travel at 70mph and collide with large mass objects. It is a logistics problem. Society is designed around people moving distances that are far greater than can be efficiently traveled by foot. We have no choice but to travel in vehicles. Do you have any idea how many people would splatter each day if it weren't for the regulations? Back in the day vehicles were designed as cheap as possible with little or no effort put into safety. A car running into a telephone pole at 30mph would turn into a crushed popcan and it is unlikely the driver would survive. Considering how many people travel each day many miles the number of deaths is actually quite low in comparison.

    I'm not against people having guns in their homes to protect themselves. I do think if we got rid of all the guns it would be better overall. However this is politically impossible and pretty offensive to a large percentage of the population so I would never support such a thing.

    The only point I was ever trying to make is that cc'ers are not always a good thing.

    And why the hell does this guy not need a concealed license? Retired law enforcement are just that: retired. They should follow the same laws we do.

    I don't know if this individual has a history of unstable behavior, but this report suggests that he had recently begun to engage in what appears to be dysfunctional conduct. More about his past conduct will become known during the legal process, assuming he doesn't accept a plea bargain along the way.

    He is in some serious crap.

    At his arraignment, he was refused bail, and the judge told him that SYG was not applicable.

    Also seems there was documentation in his police file about anger issues some years ago.

    Maybe.

    Carry on folks. Nothing to see here.

    Bah. The point was that those engaged in lawful carry are RARELY part of the problem... the vast majority of the incidents of which you speak involve drugs, gangs, or career criminals... not lawfully armed citizens.

    Prove it. Lets see the numbers.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    I've already posted stats on CCW'ers, on this forum, several times. So has Jerry. Far lower incidence of being charged with violence than the general population.

    Search it up if you want, I'm too busy to bother doing it again just now. Or don't, I could care less.
