    That is not to say I wouldn't be armed though.
    the chances of doing it twice are much better if you are armed

    Thats because we aren't the USSR, N. Korea, etc.
    But beyond that, you are comparing the results of an ideology with the results of crime, mental illness etc.

    Please make better comparisons.

    Jebus. Do you not understand how you are attempting to compare an ideology with a tool?
    Are you going to compare atheism to lawnmowers next?

    Yes, of course they do. They give a feeling of safety and security. Would someone without a firearm go outside to their dead end road to confront a vehicle that had no business being there? Would you answer a knock on the door in the middle of the night without gun in hand? Would you drive into a bad neighborhood unarmed?

    Do firearms empower people? Note that this is not pertaining specifically to the US or the 2nd amendment, but rather a general question.
    But Im not asking about subject"feelings" here. Im asking about demonstrable differences in outcome.

    If the discussion consisted simply of naming reviled dictators, you'd be doing quite well. That wasn't your (dubious) claim.

    The second amendment has killed more Americans than marxism ever will.

    Your issue is with authoritarian leaders, not marxism. Still waiting for you to back up your 100 million claim.
