    At least arm yourself with a good blade if packing a gun is out of the equation

    instant stops with a knife require a great deal of skill or luck

    ask anyone who has killed a deer with an arrow and a bullet

    Wait... so you're advocating that everyone should carry a knife, but not necessarily a gun for self defense? A knife is a much more difficult weapon for a person to effectively master AND opens the knife wielder up to a greater risk of injury when used to resist a violent crime.


    ...and to keep the post on topic, campuses that ban guns ban knives too.

I heard him comment to his buddy "yup, he's dead" (I wanted to shout at him "so are a whole lotta inocent bystanders")... I then watched him reload, holster his trusty sidearm, and swagger out of the range.

    Make no mistake, I fully support the shall issue, but I would like to see some kind of qualification standard.
    In other words, you're arguing that the Los Angeles County Sheriffs should not be armed, since just a few years ago they fired more than a hundred rounds at a suspect stopped at an intersection in Compton and failed to hit the supposed target even once. They shot the town to hell, but the suspect escaped.

    If that is acceptable for police, it must be acceptable for civillians.

    No. The Mayor knows of one man who was whittling on the front porch of a friend in Idaho. Who managaed to cut his femoral artery while alone on a country doorstep. He was found dead and bled.

    Can't get more greater damage than dead.

    My job is to shed light and not to master.

    My 13 year old son can outshoot most police officers in this country with a Glock 17 (he averages about 445 on the "Glock indoor league" event) and a Smith and Wesson 38 caliber Model 10 (ie what used to be the standard police weapon for a century. Why. because he shoots about 10,000 rounds a year

    true, and a guy I met was flat on his back in the nam after he was thrown from his door gunner position when his hughey crash landed and Charlie was about to stick him with a bayonet on the end of an SKS and this guy lashed out with his Randall and charlie lost both legs faster than a NY second and was dead before the gunner was able to finish the job with a throat slash

    No.

    Proper gun regulation is:

    If you're an ex-con and you're caught with a gun, you're going back to jail.

    If you're anyone and you use a firearm in the commission of a crime, even when it is not fired, it's armed assault, and you're going to jail.

    Owning a weapon should not be subject to any requirements whatsoever.

    The carrying of a weapon should be restricted only in the most precise of conditions, such as no guns in a fireworks factory. Bad idea, that.

    When I think is explained as to why I think, it is a little more. I disagree that we have to wait for the event. Now, it will happen sooner or later, but there is no need to wait for it. We can have foresight.

    So, you're aware of the Bureau of Pre-Crime, and that it's being established today under Obama?

    Is there an Amendment wending it's way through the States allowing Pre-Crime to be considered in prosecutions?

    ...a discussion in which you threw out a completely idiotic, and easily refuted claim. You should expect to be called on it.
