Agree and would add with proper training.

I've given up on even entertaining any anti-gun perspectives, because they're all based in some utopian impossible 'what if they didn't exist?' fairytale neverland.
The reality is this, if firearms were never conceived, human beings would have no doubt adapted, evolved and improved upon bows, spears, knives, ect., to the point of them becoming just as deadly. Badguys would use them, which by default means the Goodguys have to acquire the same to protect themselves... why is reality so hard to accept?

You are right of course.
Folks are plumb Looney about the sight of a gun

A) It was police officers, not a carrying citizen, who returned fire and wounded the guy (from reports I have read).
B) Until we know who the guy was, what gun he actually had, how it was purchased/obtained, and his criminal/mental health record...
We can't get "rid" of this "anti-gun" argument.
(And I am NOT anti-2nd amendment)
Just want to point out that Virginia is both an open carry and a permitted conceal carry state (neither of which I am against).

Wouldn't it be ironic if it was the Trump WH that trashed the 2nd. I don't trust that man at all or any of the crew he assembled. Especially Sessions! Believe me!
