The other day I was considering the phrase "Guns don't kill people; people do."
Then I told myself, that that is biased towards guns.
"Guns make it easier for people to kill people" seems to be a better way to put it.
That said, a fully armed neighborhood is much less likely to appeal to robbers and burglars, and if a town existed with citizens all carrying
concealed weapons and trained to use them, I would expect much less crime there too.
So, I agree with you. Just like the government would love for us all to be unarmed, so they can show us how much of a criminal group they really are,
everyday people bet on people not being able to fight back, just like rapists do.
The only way to secure your life in any situation, is to be protected. The more that you yourself can do that, the better.
A bullet can stop a madman in under a second. How long does it take for the cops to get there, and how many people might die in the meantime?
