    With all the nut cases around these days you think they should be required to carry a gun? No thanks. I am sure the police would love this idea............... NOT!

    But the laws don't stop people from breaking them. Sort of by definition, crimes only exist when the law is broken. So does any law ever prevent any crime? Why do we have laws?

    You think the police are l;oving dealing with average citizens TODAY? What with the steady drumbeat of hatred towards 'the cops'? Maybe the cops would have to engage a little less. Regardless...your fears have to date been proven unfounded.

    If you need some crossbow advice just PM. Get an Excalibur!

    Wound you require every adult to carry a gun?

    No. I just wouldnt fear it.

    If you want solutions, I think people need to be taught 'battle mind'. Battle mind doesnt require a gun...but it does put you in the mindset that when tragedy occurs the first thing you do is NOT look for a comfortable place to die. Get people in survival mode rather than victim mode and these shootings are a lot less severe.

    No. I wouldnt require it. I'd encourage responsible citizens to learn how to protect themselves. If that involves carrying a firearm...so be it.

    I don't think I will go back to shooting on regular basis again until after I retire. I gave all my guns to my younger brother. He still manages to find time to shoot and my nephew will be shooting in a few more years. I sort of lost interest or haven't found the time to shoot in the last 10 years. I kept one gun for self defense. The last thing I shot was one of these new pellet rifles. They are awesome. My brother goad me into shooting it. Claiming that because I no longer shoot I have lost my edge. I hit a dime at 75 feet first and only shot. I was not going to let him prove it was just luck. I think I would actually enjoy shooting these new pellet rifles. I never owned a crossbow but I really enjoy shooting them. For now all effort is making sure I put away enough money to retire.

    These sheep who think you need a gun to kill are so misinformed. At 6'4" and 300lbs my biggest fear has been hitting some idiot to hard and killing them. I have worked out for years on a 65lb bag and can easily do it. One of my best friends actually did kill a drunk who attacked him. He was lucky to get off with 10 years probation. He had multiple witnesses he was being attacked. He was only 160lbs. One hit and the man was dead. Scary. This is what I fear. Spending years in jail for defending myself thanks to a jury of sheep.

    my kid "liberated" my 10 year old PCP air rifle and he talked me into buying him a compressor so he doesn't have to fill it up with a bike pump. he gets about 30 shots per fill with this 22 caliber air gun and it shoots at about 900 FPS. he wasted 100 starlings in one day that were flocking to our mulberry tree by the horse barn. he sat in the barn and the starlings up high couldn't see him. he said he went through about 115 pellets and with a 550 yard cornfield behind our barn misses don't clear the property. those PCPs are awesome but they aren't cheap
