330. I guess you believe that no one should leave home without...
...packing heat!!! People leaving for the office, children for school, everyone needs to have two pistols in their holsters before leaving home, right???

Yes, we can all return to the glorious days of the Old West. Trouble for you, though, is that the criminal having foreknowledge that a crime is going to be committed, draws his weapon first. And I would say that he could at least several before getting killed himself, maybe significantly more if he's wearing a bullet-proof vest.

Would you have us all be wearing bullet-proof vests too? That might well have cut down on the carnage in Virginia.

You ever stop and think what it would be like, everyone, everywhere carrying guns??? Guns on buses, subways, in malls, factories, offices, all over. Children, teenagers carrying guns (hey, they can be shot too, right??? Think Columbine). IS THIS THE KIND OF WORLD YOU WANT??

Or wouldn't it be much better IF NO ONE HAD A GUN? Those very low gun ownership rates in Europe, are you going to tell me that that is unquestionably impossible here??? No one has a gun, no one gets murdered by the gun.

Yes, as you say, "gun control didn't work here." THAT'S BECAUSE IT WASN'T EVEN TRIED

How many MORE MUST DIE before guns are eliminated from society???
