The trouble with a gun is that a gun makes you braver than you should be.

Right, because banning guns did anything against 9-11. Sure, banning guns may end a portions of gun violence, but the monsters who want to do this kind of thing will simply find another way. We need to get at the root of the issue (shootings, not 9-11) mental health issues. It's our dirty secret or excuse for behavior. We are not addressing it properly in this nation. We need to change out attitude about mental health or this stuff will keep happening, guns or not.

what happens when someone breaks into your home do you wave them away or do you offend yourself, calling the cops is a good idea but they never get their in time, what stops bad men with weapons? good men with weapons.

Strangely, for people who are getting "inadequate" pay, they seem more than eager to give a substantial portion of it to people who don't do anything for them except have them complain and ask for more ... no I take that back, I guess they do prevent them from getting fired when they fail to do their jobs well. I suppose that's worth paying off another big business, I mean union.
