25. comment from a news story...

"So many of you people who advocate "more guns" have no understanding what it takes to take a life. None at all. None at all. Assault weapons are the problem. Making them mainstream is the problem. But advocating more guns. 300 million legally purchased weapons in this country, lol. More concealed carry laws? What is wrong with you? Most people, are not killers. Look at statistics, a person who pulls a gun is more likely to be shot. It comes down to one thing, they teach us in the Marines, "never point your weapon at anything you do not intend to shoot". How many people have actually killed? How many people with an assault weapon pointed at them, with no training, will have what it takes to take down a gunman? More guns, only increases the odds of somebody legally owning and carrying a concealed weapon, getting past any type of security, and being able to open fire. Not only that, if you are not willing to take a life, if you hesitate for a second, then that gun you are carrying for self defense, means nothing, because that person is willing and ready to kill in a heartbeat. Are you? and if you say yes, you have mental issues. Because I had to become that in Iraq, it is painful, and not easy, and is why we have such a hard time adjusting back to the civilian world. To willfully take a life, means you have to become a monster. All of you speak a big game about this, but none of you know what it takes, to take a life"
