    simple question
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    When I say "ban guns", I'm talking about making it illegal to carry a gun in public.
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.

    I don't really see fear as a factor. More of a difference in the cost/benefit analysis between the opposing sides.

    Re: Who is least afraid?

    Does my ownership of a fire extinguisher mean I'm afraid of fires? Or just prepared?

    I would love anyone of the anti-2nd Amendment crown who votes that carrying a gun means you're afraid to explain their logic.

    again when asked why one carries a gun the scenarios are remarkably scary. People seem afraid of every moment they are in public and even more so in their own homes. Where my fire extinguisher is there in the unlikely scenario of a fire in my house that I can put out.

    I don't think about my fire extinguisher until I need it and when I am in someone else's space I don't worry that I don't have it with me. but some of the people on these boards go crazy if someone suggests there are places they shouldn't carry their weapon.

    You aren't prepared for anything simply by carrying a gun. In fact I would argue most people would do more harm than good in a crisis.
