I think it was actually neither, It was irrelevant.
So then, following your 'logic' are you prepared to say that this man having a gun "was not" a good thing?
Are you then saying that this man having his gun did nothing to prevent more people from getting hurt?
Let me ask the question a little more clearly for you.
This is going to be really easy.
(btw, I am only asking this in order to show people how people like you think and the tactics you guys use in order to avoid having to directly answer
a direct yes or no question, I don't ACTUALLY expect the answer)
Do you think that this man and his gun were a factor in the reason the knife weilding maniac stopped his attack thus preventing more injury?
A. Yes I do.
B. No I don't.
All it takes is a couple of people to grab the guy and disarm him...
No one there seemed to have gotten that memo cuz', well.....It didn't happen now did it?
Now, before you answer a question with a question let me warn you, I will not be derailed.
That is a common tactic used by people of your mentality and I won't allow it.
Not sure what you mean but your mentality is clearly petty, judgemental and moronic.
So, will you kindly provide a DIRECT answer to my question?
(probably not because your ego won't allow it)
Who are you?
Why are you talking like you've read my autobiography?
WTF are you on?
Notice how you still never really answered my question?
See, the more you press the issue with people like this and demand simple answers to VERY simple and direct personal questions the more angry and
agitated their tone becomes.
The reason is this.
If they answer
YES, I do think him having that gun WAS indeed a good thing because he was able to stop the attack without ANYONE getting hurt.
Well, then that kinda DESTROYS their argument AGAINST guns now doesn't it?
But, if they answer
NO, I DON'T think that him having that gun was a good thing,
well, then you just sound like an idiot.
So, you force them to choose between sounding like a hypocrite or an idiot.
Neither one are really desireable choices to be sure.
So, they ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS try to find option "C" usually by answering your question with yet another question.
