[QUOTE=Thrilla;1061566863]you did a horrible job selling your story....none of it was compelling.
when/if a stranger pull a knife on you... please, ask him about his kids....and make sure not to hate him.
not much more I can say to you.
don't worry, if i ever get robbed, i will indeed not hate him nor use the robbery as an excuse to murder him. my gun is only for defense of my children, my husbands and myself, not for defense of petty cash with deadly force. and yeah i will ask him about his kids. because he's probably in a state of desperation and if i can help his kids, i will.
I don't believe carrying a gun is about someone's sense of empowerment. It is about our right to defense. It is about the fabric of our Country.
The Founding Fathers of this Country had one huge concern. And the Constitution was written because of this one concern.
The 2nd Amendment was written with a Tyrannical Government in mind. IN FACT, the Constitution was written with that in mind because that is what the founding fathers wanted to escape and avoid with their new found freedom.
I wanted to edit to say that I am a victim of a nearly point blank range hold up with a .38 GSW to my Lower spine which took out a disk between L4 and L5 vertebrae.
I have never understood why victims are so desirous to want to destroy the fabric of our Country simply because they have been wronged within the system.
I was shot, not because guns are legal. But because that type of thing happens to some people.
I could have put SOME BLACK PERSON in prison when the police kept bringing suspects up to my ambulance asking me if this is the guy is that the guy.
I told them what he was wearing and out of the 20 people they brought to the window they only brought 2 who looked very close to the guy who shot me.
If the guy got away with shooting me then so be it. But I refused to put someone away who didn't shoot me just because of the attitude that "SOMEONE MUST PAY BECAUSE I HAVE BEEN WRONGED." Which is a concept I see happen a lot of times in this Country.
If anyone should have the desire to have guns made illegal it should be me. But just the opposite. I understand that the 2nd Amendment had Nothing to do with gun violence or people losing their way. It has to do with the freedom of WE THE PEOPLE! Those of you who do not understand this need to do a lot more thinking before you get involved in this type of discussion. I cannot write enough to make you understand. You must think about this and stop rationalizing all the subjective reasoning. Objective reasoning is all that matters in something like this.
