Response to Atypical Liberal (Reply #43)

Sun Apr 22, 2012, 10:16 PM

51. So you are perfectly happy feeling that you "must carry" in order to feel protected?

"Violent crime is continuing its decades-long decline. In those terms, civilian life continues to get better and better.

When good people stand up to bad people, this is not an act to be mourned, but an act to be celebrated. "

Do you think that "must issue" and "concealed carry" have actually led to the decline? Perhaps something else is at work in respect of those declining numbers - a rising standard of living(despite our economic downturn) - better policing, town watch, etc.

You will most like likely say that a society where everyone is armed is a "civil" society. If that was indeed the case, then Afghanistan or Somalia should be remarkably civil and safe.
