A young man who’s family convenience store had been a target for criminals since it opened gunned down a robber this weekend when the man threatened his sister.
“There shouldnt be guns in the first place.”
Well the fact of the matter is that firearms do exist and they are not going away.
When you outlaw guns only criminals will have guns.
“The real problem is why do people feel the need to break into peoples homes and rob people???”
Who knows the motives of these people. There are simply bad people in this world who have no problem with harming others.
A firearm allows someone to defend their property and their family. A firearm is a tool. Nothing more. It is an extension of an individual when used.
Take a knife for example, is a knife good or evil? I can do great things with a knife. I can use it to cut my food. I can use it to spread butter on my toast. Does this make the knife good?
I can also do very terrible things with a knife. I can use it to stab people. I can use to threaten others. Does this make the knife evil?
The answer is the knife is neither good or evil. It is a tool. It is an extension of the individual who uses it. When someone gets stabbed we don’t put the knife on trial. We don’t put a gun on trial when someone gets shot. We put individuals on trial when these things happen. Inanimate objects don’t have personalities. Tools do not just get up and kill people.
“sorry but what is this bullshit about teaching ur kids to handle guns?”
It is never too early to teach a child firearm safety. It is never too early to teach a child how to properly use and respect firearm. I think the best thing children can learn from that experience is that a gun is not a toy like they see in the movies or video games.
In doing so we carry on a beautiful American tradition of firearm ownership.
Thanks to dudeistlibertarian for this wonderful answer.
Well I do what I can.
"The 2nd Amendment is misinterpreted making people think they can own firearms. The founding fathers had no intentions of people owning guns."
JEFFERSON CITY, Mo., August 5, 2014 - In a landslide today, Missouri voters took a powerful first step towards a nullification of gun control measures by approving a constitutional amendment “oblig…
"Blind people shouldn’t have guns"
So people with disabilities aren’t allowed to have the means to defend themselves? How ableist of you.
One of my good friends is legally blind, he has his concealed weapons permit, went through all the training, and carries responsibly.
So fuck you.
LILLINGTON, N.C. — The Harnett County sheriff expressed concern Monday evening about a recent spike of violent crime, and he’s even told residents to start arming themselves. WTVD-TV reported that…
I carry everywhere I go.
You should too.
Not going to include this one in our formal count of defensive gun uses since we usually don’t count animal encounters, but it is certainly an example of using a firearm to possibly save lives. In this case, an Alaska man had to use his .45ACP handgun to shoot and kill a 9ft tall grizzly bea
Bears are one of largest fears.
I am so happy I am protected against bears.
Imagine that you live in a state like New Jersey, where your right to defend yourself with a firearm is hardly recognized at all. Now imagine two men forced their way into your home after following you home from walking your dog. They rob you, rape your girlfriend (and future wife), and merciless
You can’t rely on the police to be there all the time.
The Internet is relentlessly mocking Rolling Stone’s new photo slideshow outlining the “5 most dangerous guns in America,” with one reader calling it “maybe the worst piece of journalism of all-time.” Making the publication’s list are pistols, revolvers, rifles, shotguns, and even Derringers. As one commenter asks, “what’s…
Sometimes when shady plans backfire, they backfire really well. This was definitely the case on Saturday May 31st in Tulsa Oklahoma, as The Oklahoma Open Carry Association met Moms Demand Action for the first time. The anti-gun group requested a booth at the local farmers market and was denied, so they set up shop right …
Oklahoma is a very friendly open carry state.
