Unless the public are all going to start the practice of concealed or open carry I can't imagine they would protect much people from attacks in public places.

I'm just interested how citizens believe having a gun would protect them.

There was a Draw Muhammad Day in the Outskirts of Dallas, Texas a while back. A few muslims got angry and decided to go shoot up the building it was being held at.
The assault didnt even last 30 seconds, and the didnt make it ten feet from the car before they were gunned down. No one was hit in the crossfire, and guns were put away once the threat ended.
Thats what happens when you mess with Texas.
Bunch of redneck idiots go out of their way to insult a religion they do not understand. Don't mess with Texas? Don't try and think they are playing with a full deck of cards. Stupid. Stupid. Stupid. Grow up.
In that case , if you are ever in a situation as described hold up a "peace sign" with your left hand. That way I will know you and I promise I will not use my firearm to assist you in any way.

What gives you the idea that we are rednecks or idiots??? As far as understanding a religion, child brides, FGM, beheadings, and so on and so forth, I think we have a clear understanding of what we don't like. Ohh and yes it is for the most part a bad idea to mess with Texas.

Funny I never killed anyone with my D##K.
an M60 or M203 yes but NOT my penis.
MOST philosophical or new age types are so anti war ,their grasp of the mechanics of it are skewed to 2 dimentional,characters seemingly below them.
They forget what would happen if we didn't volunteer and we weren't so successful.
DEATH is scary to you isn't it?
If you actually think this way,I am indeed rewarded as I am FAR more intelligent and experienced than yourself.
AND I can destroy you in debate as THAT is what I do.
YOU may indeed have some grasp of the great beyond but your grip on reality is tenuous at best.
Predominately, the gun is a penis substitute, an ego prop, a false sense of security. Which is, I guess, better than no 'sense of security' for people who need it!
