    How about this guy?



    Those are guards or MPs; everyone else is disarmed. If you attack where there are no MPs or guards, you've got a window of time to slaughter unopposed before they get there.

    Yes, but those guards are armed to the teeth. There's nothing "gun free" about it.

    Some malls and whatnot have armed security, but everyone else (staff and guests) are disarmed by policy... if you attack where the armed security is not around, you have the same effect for a certain amount of time.


    Soldiers on a US-soil military base are disarmed unless they are on guard duty at an armed post.

    You can't blame a murder on a gun - otherwise that gun would be in prison and not the man who is ultimately responsible for that act.

    I would love to give a history lesson on guns and other weaponry but I don't have the time - however I should when I do have the time and energy to write a blog or a dissertation or even a thesis on this subject... I will say tho - humans are full of emotions and sometimes a knife or a hammer will do the trick as quick as a gun - not to seem morbid - but it is the truth.

    If I as wrong prisons would be a safe place.
    And none of what you have written here changes that fact that Target can ban guns and the 2nd amendment rights are still intact.

    I mean How is open carry harmful to gun rights


    Aren't guns a liability? My bare feet wouldn't hurt anyone unless I kicked them, and shoes actually make that worse.
    Not to the store, if some one fires off their personal gun the store is not responsible. As opposed to walking in with no shoes, the store is responsible if you somehow cut your foot on something.

    True, but their intent was not to die other wise they would just have killed them selves like most of the nut jobs. Their intention was to do harm. neither attack would have happened if they knew that most of their intended victims were packing

    Yes, because anger and grievance doesn't have to cloud reason; only give motivation.

    To the Fort Hood shooter it was just a mission. The military trains us to commit controled acts of violence.

    We have different ideas of what "armed to the teeth" means. MPs generaly have exactly what civilian cops have: a pistol with a couple mags and maybe a rifle in the patrole car.

    The term originated in Port Royal Jamaica in the 1600s when pirates were constantly looking for ships to loot and their guns were very primitive. As a result, pirates could shoot only once before a long reloading process. Consequently, they needed to carry a gun in each hand, and also perhaps in each pocket. For extra power, they would also hold a knife between their teeth. So to be 'armed to the teeth' means to carry the maximum number of weapons possible.

    I never claimed they couldn't - but if they can ban guns (which is something ironically they sold) they can ban gays if they want.

    It's a two-way street here.

    Do you really recommend stepping over that line? because it's only asking for trouble.

    Let people do what they do and live free until they actually physically hurt someone.
