Count the number of gun owners to the number of those gun owners who perpetrate gun related offenses.
I suspect the latter number is actually quite small.
Witnesses allegedly told police the bicyclist went for the driver after being struck, repeatedly punching him through the vehicle’s window. Police say the driver stayed in his car, but at some point during the altercation he pulled out a pistol and fired one round at the victim, striking him in the chest.
Police say the driver, who had a gun permit, called 911 and remained in his car at the scene. He was then taken into custody when officers arrived.

No one has the right to assault you. You do NOT have too sit back and allow yourself to be assaulted and to hope that the person assaulting you doesn't kill you.
Stand up for yourself. Carry a handgun everyday. I do not go anywhere without carrying. You never know when a crazy person will attempt to beat your brains out of your head.
I would rather NOT get put into a coma, or get turned into a vegetable or suffer some brain aneurism from getting punched in my head. Or lose my vision by being hit in the eye, or have my nose cartilage pushed into my brain, or have my larynx crushed by a punch etc. etc.
If it means putting lead into some crazy wacko nut assaulting me then tough luck for them. I reckon they should not attempt to crush my skull and they will not get shot.

My favorite is a woman (talking on a cell phone) with three tiny kids strung out in a line behind her and she walked in front of a semi truck. No cross walk, just the middle of a VERY busy road. The truck had to slam on the brakes and she just looked at the driver like he was the problem. True story, I saw it.
