I'm a defensive driver. I barley trust all the people on the roads to drive carefully and not be idiots.

Come on, really? You place your trust in other people in ways that make you much more vulnerable all the time without questioning it. You trust your
airplane pilot isn't going to crash the plane, the subway driver isn't going to get wasted before work and crash the train, you trust people walking
down the street next to you aren't going to "Knock out game" you in the side of the face. You trust your postal inspector and DMV worker, and co

going to suddenly start shooting each other? The place surely isn't going to get robbed, have a mass murder, have a lot of fist fights, date rapists,
pick pockets, or any other random violent act (which by the way could happen at any restaurant) due to a large portion of people being armed.
