Response to Bay Boy (Reply #25)

27. But there are differences in the functions of those three objects in response to danger. It isn't

about whether you have used them or not, but about what the objects do if you did use them and what essential differences there in what they do. It's much harder to kill someone with what comes out of a fire-extinguisher, or with a seat-belt, than it is with a gun.

Because of that specific difference, IN PUBLIC PLACES, I have legitimate concerns about the presence of guns that I am unaware of. Guns are for certain events that fire-extinguishers are not. Go head and carry a fire extinguisher around with you, if you feel you need one; I bet you won't also feel like you have to HIDE the fire-extinguisher in a public place. People might think it odd, but their reaction to it's FUNCTION wouldn't necessarily be such that hiding it would become part of its function. Guns aren't like that and yet, because of what they do, I do have a particular reaction to them, IN PUBLIC PLACES, that is part of my rights to self-determination, especially in regards to what affects my safety and that of my loved ones in those same public places - WITHOUT ANY OF OUR knowledge or opportunity to decide whatever we can about any given public situation.
