Are you a coward? Do you like insulting people in person, or just the ones who disagree with you on the internet who can't pop you in the mouth for
I'll give you my address if you want to try to come pop me in the mouth, if you are referring to me.
I posted the definition of coward. Someone who is afraid to take certain actions in the face of danger, ie to take responsibility to protect
themselves against a criminal. A criminal can illegally hold a gun to you and demand whatever they want and you are AGAINST the right to be carrying
a gun to defend yourself? And despite the Bill of Rights? Not only are you a total coward and obviously more scared of guns themselves than you are
violent crime, you would apparently be in favor of dismantling the Bill of Rights, which many Americans would consider treason and real
terrorism. This same Bill of Rights, hundreds of thousands of Americans have already spent their lives to protect for future generations. Would you
be prepared to die to try to take this right away from people? Because that's what it would come to. May I refer you to the NRA slogan, "from my
cold dead hands."
It's a lot easier to shoot your mouth off than it is to actually pull the trigger and kill another human being.
Exactly, which is why most of these arguments that if more people carried guns they would go around squeezing off shots every time they got into a
petty argument, are ridiculous. They are for self-defense in the hands of law-abiding citizens, against criminals. Criminals are not a part of this
issue because it is well-known that they can and WILL get their hands on guns even if it is against the law for them to do so. That's why they are
criminals. The same people who would mug you or even murder you in cold blood just to take your money or property from you. Do you not even realize
you would be HELPING these people by taking away guns from innocent law-abiding citizens? You might as well be contributing to the mugging and
murders yourself by preventing people from being able to defend themselves.
