    So who, really, is the one who's more afraid? The one who feels he needs a gun for self-defense, or the one who doesn't feel he needs a gun for self-defense?
    That depends on the situation, walking down the street, I'm confident enough that I can take care of myself against most "average" people. However, when I lived in a s*** area, unbeknownst to my gf at the time, I always had a knife just in case. Not out of fear, but out of preparation for a worst case.

    If ever someone is breaking down the Door to my house, I would be much more fearful without the gun.

That's been about the same for decades....lots of guns.

    You have NO answer. You just dont like mine...the greatest influences on them are their parents and school. And the schools today DO teach them to fear guns and that guns are bad. That is undeniable.

    So I feel like repeating it...yup. Esp. since I countered your silly social-worker speak.
    You are making no sense. You are pretending that one or two areas of life are the only determiners of a persons emotional make-up while ignoring all the others. That is simply pure nonsense and defies reality.

    You were provided with it in several varied examples and forms. If you see fit to ignore it and play ostrich - that is on you.

    And you still have no better answer than some random "oh kids fear guns because of their life experience and emotional makeup." Read it....you wrote it and it's a joke.

    I put a genuine foundation under my claims. You should try it sometime...you offered ZERO to support yours, except for the meaningless socio-politico speak.

    And I shot down your examples, yet you keep saying.....'I gave you examples!'

    Apparently they did not support your argument because you have resorted to just dropping the ball and claiming they worked. Claims dont make an argument. Neither does denial.

    However posts like this one, that I quoted, give you the opportunity to add space and lose context and hope that your weak responses are forgotten.

    You never supported your claim of 'oh if just one person is intimidated, open carrying should be illegal!' That was one good one.

    It matters not to me if you reject wisdom and instead prefer the grade school playground of personal attacks.

    Again with denial and avoidance.

    You provide no answers (definitely no wisdom...really? Goes to show how poor your grasp of reality is) and no support for your claims. Yet I did at every instance.

    I attacked no one..that is just one more example of your inability to process what you read (or an outright lie...which is it?)

    So no way to defend your arguments then? Ok, got it. You're done.

    Well you never showed how I failed so again...denial is your only defense.

    From your poorly supported rationale, my right to OC is not remotely in danger.

    When you start talking about those that want guns being fearful and there you are... no want for a gun unafraid? Sounds like boasting to more than just me apparently.
