Seriously? Are you ok? I do not mean in an insulting way but you seem to have a really hard time following your own words from post to post. Are you
sure you are up to having a conversation with other people? Let's take a look at what you actually said...AGAIN.

Nothing about defense against these things happening. You said that it would and DOES prevent these things from happening. Once you are in a situation
where you are defending yourself, it has already happened, hasn't it?
Shooting back at a lone gunman rampager will not prevent him from being a lone gunman on a rampage. It just makes you able to shoot back. What you
said was that guns PREVENT such things. This is what I was addressing. This is what I replied to. This is what I am trying so very hard to ask you
I don't need to. You have the same tools available to you as I.
Get some rest or see a doctor. That is not even English. Yes, you kind of do need to. It is not anyone's job but yours to find the facts to back up
your claim. Anyone can just make claims. I can make a counter claim. The right to bear arms will not and does not prevent lone gunman rampages and
home invasions. The US has the right to bear and there are still lone gunman and home invasions. See how I at least added some logic to what I said. I
might be wrong but I am certain you will not bet me that I cannot find evidence to back up my claim. Meanwhile, back at the lab, I have no problem
betting you cannot prove your claim in anyway. That is why you are arguing around it.
Look it up, look up incidents where armed citizens thwarted crimes. As I said before, the genie is out of the bottle here. I'm not saying you
guys need to adopt the right to bear arms, that's none of my concern. As the above poster stated, we got out of there, and now we make our own rules.
I think you have your metaphors mixed. What exactly is the genie here?
I can look up thwarted crimes all day long. I can look up crimes all day long. I hope you can come to understand how my ability to do the latter
precludes the former from being proof of what you seem to have forgotten that you wrote.
