OK, but if the right to own guns is guaranteed then why do you keep claiming the right will be taken away? You have no evidence of this. You may have some isolated incidents due to circumstance but that's all.Your point was meant to ditract, cars, tv, and other luxuries are not guaranteed to not be infringed upon by the constitution like firearms are. Please try again.
Germany huh... HILTER, THE NAZIS!!! and yet you accuse me of attempted distraction?History repeats itself for those who don't learn from past lessons... I believe germany was a representitive republic before Hitler got elected... Funny how that works out eh?
So you'd like to adjust your argument now?Right, so you were speaking of law-abiding citizens who are permitted to own firearms in the ghetto, right?
Getting acrimonious won't help your argument.As far as your last statement, I don't give a flying **** what you think I should do presented with someone robbing me. My decision is my own, and of noone else's power to make for me. If I'm confronted by a robber and believe that my shooting them will end the situation, I will shoot them. It's MY CHOICE.
Where did I say this is what you should do? I believe I simply stated a fact. Your attempted strawman burned.
In Arizona eh? Well, the other 49 states should do it then because Arizona is the nations leader in smart policy...For your second story, if your wife's friend had been armed in the State of Arizona she'd have been legally allowed to shoot the woman who physically assaulted her. Ending the whole situation, and removing one less desireable from the gene pool.
Not to mention that you misunderstood my question. Do you think the woman who brutally attacked my wife's friend would have used a gun if she'd had one handy? Obviously she is prone to violent outbursts and her vicinity to her children and onlookers didn't seem to deter her from extreme violent behavior.
Another strawman... actually I acknowledged that an armed citizenry may well be a factor in decreasing crime. But the caveat I posted was that other gun related incidents will rise. Another strawman in flames!What's funny, I had a similar situation happen.. mozying along on the freeway I notice some road rage going down... guy in a truck is abusing the hell out of some kids in a toyota corolla... Guy in the truck STOPS in the middle of the freeway cutting them off and bring them to a stop.. I almost run into both of them... then another truck almost runs into us. So we're all sitting here in the middle of the freeway at a dead stop.. and this guy gets out of his truck and approaches the toyota corolla with a club of sorts. I get out of my vehicle and draw my weapon. Guy sees me and my pistol, gets back into his truck and takes off. I hop back into my car, call 911 telling them what happened and follow him till DPS pulls him over / arrests him.
I didn't have to shoot the guy, but I would have.. and I would have been legally justified given the situation of the guy attacking them with a weapon. I simply had to show him that someone else was there that wasn't going to let it happen. Once again proving that firearms used in a responsible manner can prevent crime. But, you and your gun control friends won't acknowledge that kind of **** happens.. cause it's inconvenient... the truth is.
Not to mention that you have no way of knowing whether it was your gun or your presence as a witness that deterred this guy. You certainly could draw my conclusion as easily as yours, especially since you clearly stated "I didn't have to shoot the guy, but I would have.. and I would have been legally justified given the situation of the guy attacking them with a weapon. I simply had to show him that someone else was there that wasn't going to let it happen." Let's hear the recording of the police interview where the guy tells us why he didn't attack them...
I'm not even sure if you would have been legally justified since you weren't being attacked and the attacker didn't have a gun... what's the law in your particular state?
