I didn't attempt to analyze your statements. I've been around long enough to have seen the same damned thing hundreds of times. Some folks with an
irrational fear of firearms were often raised that way. Irresponsible parents, afraid themselves of firearms, passed on their irrational fears to
their offspring. Who pass it on. And on.
The point is, it doesn't matter where a gun is carried - Disneyland is fine if one is so inclined, as is the movie theater as you suggested.
You are among the most naive people on the planet. You actually THINK there's a proper place for firearms, and other places where firearms should
not be allowed?
You think the presence of one person should qualify to abrogate a right? You're mighty selective about your arbitrary determinations on rights,
aren't you? Unjustified, as I don't see you as that smart.
All those murders that occur every year? You alone could stop them, as you purport to KNOW where potential dangers lie, and where they don't. By
your logic, they should have died as they SHOULD have known they were going to be murdered at that place and at that time.
You think you can actually pick and choose the areas where dangers threaten? You think you can anticipate where evil folks will strike?
You should have your own Vegas show. Mind reading.
Unless . . . you're an undertaker and love to see the bodies roll in.
Worshipers are attacked and killed in church, mall shoppers are attacked and killed while shopping, folks are kidnapped and later killed from well-lit
parking lots, folks are killed at home while trying to sell a camper or boat, folks are killed in restaurants, in schools, in universities, on and on
The cops are not responsible for my safety. I am. Nor yours. You are.
Your not very well thought-out question was, "what do guns and a Presidential rally have in common?"
One is the Right to Assemble as evidence by the gathering,
the Right to Free Speech as evidence by the signs and yelling, and
the Right to Bear Arms as some folks were apparently doing.
Wow. Three rights expressed, as guaranteed by our Constitution, in one meeting. It doesn't get much better than that.
The dumbest pansies were aghast at the DISPLAYED firearms, but never gave much though to the many licensed conceal-carry firearms that I guarantee you
were there as well.
Forgot about those, didn't you?
And no, sonny-boy, I don't drive a Jeep, I don't have NRA stickers, I don't wear camoflage unless hunting, I don't wear a cap, I don't chew, and
yes, I've already taken my scalps so I don't have this need to prove anything.
You're apparently wrong again.
I can look at my uniform in the back of the closet and see the personal decorations specifically for valor for verification.
I have zero misconceptions about firearms, zero illusions as to capability, I know EXACTLY how I react during a firefight after scores and scores of
meeting engagements, I do not have any doubts about my capabilities, I clearly am aware of my limitations, and I have no desire for a repeat.
Unlike you, I know the dangers, I know the irrational bastards are likely to show up anywhere at any time, I know the odds, and I know how I will
That's the difference between you and I.
You need to get out more.
