OK, I get the notion of protecting others!

But will we turn back to the days of the Wild West, where everyone can shoot back? Most people don't have the proper training to fire a high powered rifle, so when they fire back at the shooter, will they hit innocent bystanders? We should rethink this, but than again what do I know?

1. I know this much. I'm a 71 year old woman who lives alone.

I have never had a desire to own a gun in the past and I have no desire to own one now. I have never been in a situation that would have been better if I'd been armed. I've never been in a situation where I wished I had a gun.

YMMV.

2. I would never own a gun ( never had ) but I am have very good aim

and hit my target squarely ( I am talking about live targets ) but what everybody has to remember is that there is ALWAYS someone better. I only killed for food and only a rifle. My attitudes toward guns have changed over the years and think they should be banned except for hunting and many rules to have those. Yes, I do fear the repukes are leading this nation into the old west.

3. "Shoot back" ... Jeez

 

That's called self defense. Everyone has the right to defend themselves.

Btw, I'm seeing reports that the good guy with a gun is an NRA instructor.
