    I'm a war veteran, a former PMC, I worked as a trainer in CQB carbine and pistol courses, home defense courses, etc.


    I've shot at those who have shot at me. Let's leave it at that, I don't respect you enough to go into any details. You claim you "understand violence" and you give your paintball skillz as proof?

    First, refute my points. I don't type posts for no reason.

    Secondly, stop using AK47 as your only gun. Plenty of people use small guns to protect themselves.

    Thirdly, Everyone isn't being attacked all the time, ergo, that's why "most unarmed people get along fine." Being attacked by criminal is a random occurance. As one example, look at one statistic of just normal civillians being killed by criminals. Then add violent attacks by criminals where people survived.

    Fourth, I "get" your point. I think it silly, so I try to wake you up.

    you are being obtuse, I needed something for a job I had in NM, you said, even after I've shown you the dangers of confronting poachers, you would be right in there with nothing but a smile....


    You'd get our atv jacked, shot, or both. Kudos to your thought process here.
    Whether you owned it now or then is not the point. You said you needed at your home. I reject that claim. Now or then. You were overreacting, badly.

    It is to my home state. Please be accurate and honest when making claims about me.


    Really, so even though the previous employees were shot at, had thier atv's jacked., threatened with guns, etc... I was over reacting by arming myself while patroling this employers land. (wasn't my ranch, pay attention)....


    Really? This is your logic?

    You jumped into a discussion with rev. So that was the weapon we were talking about. It is the AK47 that I object to. There would have been no conversation without his cliam concerning an AK47. The only other claim on my part is that no weapon is magic. Too often it makes siomeone feel safer than they are. I worked a couple of decades on an ambulance and never picked you any shot by a criminal, or shot by someone defending themselves. All those I picked up either accidently shot themselves or someone else. They were much less safe than they thought they were.

    Now, I don't argue that people don't use guns in crimes, or that someone never defended themselves, but it is simply not true that a gun is required with either. You can be safe all your life and never own a gun.

    Perhaps you need to be clearer. No one has suggested law enforcement not be armed. And your employer is not required to have anyone shot. That would be a choice on his part. If you were not alw enforcement, or legal security, than it would still be an overreaction.

    Did you know pepper spray is banned in London? Er, I mean UK?

    Since ideologies tend to trickle from the UK to America, if you're wise enough to notice, one would reasonable think pepper spray may next be targeted after guns have been banned.

    As to your last sentence, don't you dare presume to speak for everyone. Ever. Don't even try to tell people they must consider other ways to protect themselves. Apparently you don't even think about the frail or elderly.

    That reminds me. Ever notice videos from Britain when a criminal was plowing his car into civillians?

    The police were trying to stop the car with batons.

    Cheers.
