Sorry to start another 2a thread, but even this judge gets it.

An armed society is a polite one.

Also, that society has FAR LESS CRIME.

In a situation even more rare than finding myself in agreement with Au or Finn, I find myself in complete agreement with the 'Cat on this one.

Quote:

From the article:

Judge Moon told Danielle Walker, "I know many fine police officers. But we can't depend on the police to protect us any more."



Two words. No. Kidding.

When COULD we depend on the police to protect us? As far as I've ever seen, they're only useful after the fact, and only in a clean-up capacity. If you're relying on the police to save your ass, the next mess they'll be cleaning up might be YOU!

So, if this is self-evident, why do so many people argue against it?

I mean, is it that they are so spoiled that they have never seen violence (except on T.V., and in the movies and vid-games?)

I mean, I have friends from 3rd world countries, and they take it as a matter of course that they be armed. Laws be damned.

So, since its even written in our Constitution...where are they coming from?

I mean, what is the psychology of folks who want everyone disarmed?

I'm not going to enter into a huge argument about this as I am not actually anti-gun. Just to say up front, since you seem to be champing at the bit to have a go at someone about this subject. Don't make it me.


I would think that the main thing making people leery of an armed society is the potential for abuse. The language thrown around ("You do XYZ and you'll lose something, and I don't mean your keys!") can seem very aggressive and trigger-happy to someone who is not mentally predisposed to accepting guns as positive. It invokves the image of someone paranoid and possibly prejudiced shooting before they ask, causing unnecessary death that is then justified on the basis of the shooters fear or anger.

When people throw around violent language about what they would like to do to others who have crossed some kind of line, this also makes people leery of trusting just anyone with a gun.

And yes, I think not being exposed to violence in their regular life probably plays a role, as well. It may seem bizarre to someone who is surrounded by violence and feels its threat constantly, but from the opposite view point it is just as bizarre. If you don't know what it feels like, you have a harder time understanding those who live it, be it a sense of safety or a sense of danger.


That's what I can come up with. I don't claim that any of the above reasons are entirely rational, but I think no one will win over anti-gun people by getting angry or condescending.

What helped me make up my mind about the issue were always people who very calmly emphasized how responsibly they handle their own guns (e.g., child safety, training), were willng to admit limits to how much guns can protect you, and the argument that criminals would have illegal guns, anyway.

Basically, what I find convincing are people who actually try to address the concerns of gun-sceptics. Anything that sounds like aggression is only going to reinforce their distrust of pro-gun people's judgment.

I was referring to the devastation I could wreak with my sword, not a gun. I would typically send someone to the hospital, not a morgue anyway, so where's the agressiveness in that?

Anti-Knife, other bladed weapons count on that.

I have a sword. They're not illegal, unless you wander around on the street with it.

Agent, with that said...

Yes, history and current situation does play a key role. But it has been my experience, that "current situation" can change in the blink of an eye.

Remember, the dregs of society do not just stay in their little self-made hell holes. They do wash up on the shores of "nice" communities.

Luckily, most are so far removed from intelligence that they announce their presence as a threat from far off. Clothing, hair, speech, are all dead giveaways. (Before you get on me about this one, I mean it to apply to all races, creeds, colors, religions, and sexuality. And anything/anyone else I missed.)

That being said, I have yet to hear a valid reason as to why everyone (ESPECIALLY women) in our nation should NOT be armed at all times.

I mean, you want to make everyone equal? Cut down crime, make people feel and be more safe? Then everyone should be armed.

It should be as natural as taking your wallet and keys with you.

"We'll know our disinformation program is complete when everything the American public believes is false." -- William Casey, Reagan's presidential campaign manager & CIA Director (from first staff meeting in 1981)


Ya know, it's weird... I grew up in a fairly large town (or small city), around 75,000 people when I was growing up, and as kids of 11 or 12, we would take our .22 rifles and go walking out past the city limits, where we'd hunt for rabbits, rats, and birds to take home and feed to our snakes.

What's *weird* about that, in retrospect, is that never - not once - were we stopped and questioned by police. Never even looked at like anything was odd in what we were doing.

Also, when I went to high school in that same town (a school with a graduating class of over 1100 seniors per year, so NOT a one-room schoolhouse by any means!), it was not uncommon to see a gun rack in a pickup, and a deer rifle in that rack. And those were the students' pickups. And yet somehow, with so many guns around, we managed to have not one single shooting in school, nor any incidents of people bringing their guns INTO the school.

I simply can't imaging walking down the street with a rifle now. I'd be surrounded by SWAT in about 3 minutes, I'd bet.

So what changed? At what point did my home town change from a rural mindset, where carrying a gun meant you were trying to gather food, to an urban mindset, where it meant you MUST be trying to kill somebody?

Of course to drive a car, you have to have a licence, earned by proving competency and safety behind the wheel. If you have to prove you're able to safely and expertly use a firearm before you can buy and take one home, and lose that licence if you are found using the weapon dangerously, or with it on your person while under the influence of drugs or alcohol, then that's fine with me.

Bar staff could say "give me your car keys and your gun, son, you've had enough".

None whatsoever, generally. Some states require testing as you get on in years, but most don't even do that. What I'm on about is that any fool can drive a car, and any fool can get a gun. Consider the death of that 8 year old at a gun show in Massachusetts supposedly run by professional gun enthusiasts. Look at all the auto deaths in my country. No one here can even walk on pavement with a little bit of ice without falling & nearly killing themselves.
We train nobody to do anything well.
I had a cop friend tell me that they were trained how to fight & shoot by going to infrequent classes where stuff got "demonstrated" for them. He said he learned to shoot his gun & fight hand to hand on his own time & money.

No freaking kidding. Breaks my heart that there's never an American F1 driver with anything close to a realistic chance to do anything in the sport.

Breaks my heart even more that there's not even an American F1 race most years. :( Here I am, stuck with NASCAR or the IRL (aka "Idiots Running Left")... and even that's going away now, merging back with IndyCar, or whatever they're calling that misbegotten series this year.

Well, in theory we have a test over here, which you fail if you're not up to scratch, and then no licence for you.
