*YAWN*, that old chestnut.I really hope that your last thoughts are not "gee, I wish I had my gun with me", or that your child's last thought isn't "mommy, stop this man from hurting me".
For me, I believe a firearm is the best available tool to get the job done. That's for me. That said, it's certainly not the only tool - nor is it the most effective tool for every person. There are certainly a plethora of alternatives available. In fact, many of us carry more than one self-defense item at a time.Let me get this straight, you prefer to blame the lack of firearm for the extent of violence perpetrated against an individual, just as the anti's like to blame the presence of a firearm for the extent of violence? Paaalease. There's no definitive argument that could be made that a person would have a 'better' fighting chance during an attack if armed with a handgun than armed with, for example, a taser.
Did you know that people often die from being tasered? (Google it.) So what will happen if you experience another self defense situation (I hope you don't) and you taser somebody and they die? Will you get rid of your taser, too?There's no definitive argument that could be made that a person would have a 'better' fighting chance during an attack if armed with a handgun than armed with, for example, a taser.
I kind of agree. The "logic" which lead B92FSL to her current state seems incredibly contrived, and her posturing seems affected.What gutshot said.
She had a lot of you folks fooled, but now her true colors are there for all to see. There was no way to reconcile support for the Right with her leftness, One of the two had to win out.
I wonder if she ever supported a RKBA, or just said so to fool the folks here.
I disagree. The convoluted, emotional-based "logic" represented in her post definitely jibes with my experience of most people's behavior/action models . . . .I kind of agree. The "logic" which lead B92FSL to her current state seems incredibly contrived, and her posturing seems affected.
Her post did not jibe with my operating human behavior/action models.
+1While I don't claim to understand fully your decision, I can tell that you've thought it through and it's the right decision for you.
I cannot fathom making the same decision for myself, but then, none of us can fully get into one another's head.
I wish you nothing but the very best. You have more challenges than many of us here, and I hope you are able to get through all of them safely and peacefully.
Since you're supportive of all rights, I do hope you'll stick around and weigh in from time to time on topics that interest you.
