I'm a bit bugged by the study. There was very little info like how many of the people shot/killed were open carrying and legally carrying, how many were gang members or known for gang activity? I can agree homies with guns think they are tougher than their rivals. I can't disagree the normal human feels more comfortable with everyday activities when they are armed but I can disagree that the normal citizen is more likely to act when they have a gun. I emphasize normal. Like I've commented before, if you are the type of person to act you will, whether it be by gun, stick, rock, nearest bottle, or hand to hand combat. There are as many different personalities as there are guns and I am no expert. Just a bit bugged at anything that makes gun carriers look bad.
