The irony is that that kind of thing won't help you keep any safer. You'll increase your chances of getting shot, unless you assume you can "get the draw" on everybody, and that you won't get mistaken for another "evildoer" when you pull out your piece if there are a bunch of gunners there.

The Tragedy Of The Commons and other other essays comes to mind, and may be applicable.

The NRA doesn't care about any of that, just like repigs in general don't care if society breaks down because of their economic policies. They'll always have fences to hide behind and extra homes in safe places (meaning, among other things: places with gun control laws instead of the Wild West situation in the USA)
