I don't think this is any kind of "clincher" question as you put it. I just think Gawdzilla is incapable of providing an adequate answer I can change my opinion on.
Mercy my trusty weapon? There truly is a phobia for anything ballistic.
You can grab a chair or a bat, or your ballz, that's your choice.
You are responding to a one-person thread there, I believe.

You are the one trying to imply that a situation where the only way is to shoot your way out is likely enough to occur that we should all have a gun at the ready at all times. You seem to think that you live in Somalia.

And last year the American voters had a great idea too. I trust my cat more than I trust my fellow man to maintain stability.

You are the one trying to imply that a situation where the only way is to shoot your way out is likely enough to occur that we should all have a gun at the ready at all times. You seem to think that you live in Somalia.

And you seem to think that being prepared for ugly possibilities is a bad thing.

Gun ownership ultimately is about giving oneself the ability to defend oneself - as best one is able - if things really turn to shit.

Like a seatbelt - you hope you never need it, but if the need arises and you don't have one, you're screwed....

No bullshit. Just statistics.

Quote:The murder rate for Australians was about 1/4 that of the USA BEFORE they outlawed guns...

Uh... you're totally missing the thrust of my comment about strict Aussie gun laws versus slack US gun laws. You also need a citation for your claim, or was that just a guess?

Quote:The truth of the matter? Some Americans LIKE killing people..... The guns just keep blood off the shooters shoes......

And they like doing it with guns apparently. Dodgy

Quote:Banning guns is just easier than fixing broken human beings.....

Silly comment, and a straw man at that. Stricter controls on gun ownership and importation into Australia has seen the number of firearms used in homicides decrease from 31% in 1997 (post gun buyback) to 13% in 2010. [Australian Institute of Criminology, 2011].

I'm a creationist... I believe that man created God.
