It isn't that gun rights and the right to arm one's self is out of control so much as some people are out of control and don't realize it.
Guns and weapons of whatever type are nothing more than a tool, and should be treated as such, the same as a socket wrench and ratchet set or a
baseball bat or a lug wrench or language.
Too many people don't understand that there is a time and place to use these tools, too many others are overly sensitive to people who may be overly
zealous in their display of those tools.
Who is it that is more wrong?...
A lot of people don't really understand that a gun for instance, leaves little chance for correction once the trigger is pulled, it isn't like you
can call that bullet back or divert it downrange from the target, when you can withdraw a knife thrust or a baseball bat swing.
A lot of people do not understand that there are people out there who are armed, who are not police or in any other type of authority position, who
are actually out there to protect others from those who would do harm or take advantage of others...
A guy with a gun and knife at a park, brandishing them was really nothing more than somewhat uncouth and maybe a bit stupid, but if he had a permit to
carry either or both he was lacking in judgment.
Last I heard, open carry was legal here, open carry was a good deterrent, open carry is a good way to get killed by the cops.
Poop dee doop...deee....
