I wonder if this situation could have been stopped by a person with a concealed carry permit, had they been there to witness the event.
Ahh.. A question.
Do you think someone with a concealed carry permit and they had been nearby, would they have stopped it? Prevented it? Saved the day?
Would someone WITH a CCW be required then to use that weapon and become an unpaid police officer? Would they be responsible of negligence if they just
stood by and did nothing?
What good is a gun if it's not used? What good is a gun if everyone uses one.
Why are we talking about guns in a knife thread.
I know I know, the hypocrisy.. the agenda... the "I have a right to make knife jokes!!"
It's an often heard claim however - if there had been people with guns, this would not have happened.
Yet nation wide, how manyt times a year do you hear about people with guns stopping a crime. I mean, realistically and not the one or two times that
it makes the news when old grampa bob shoots that pesky intruder dirty harry style and becomes the saviour of the town.
If it were the case, that people with guns were a deterrent to crime, then what are all the people with guns doing? Why is crime rampant?
It's just a nice bed time story to tell yourselves.
No I don't agree that guns should be removed. It's as pointless as removing any thing that can be identified as a personal right. We see how well
the War on (insert vice) has worked. We have cops on the streets saying "As soon as we take that doper out, another one comes alone. But it's what
we do." and then we have "As an sheriff of this county I will not enforce unworkable gun laws."
One hand, too easy a target, too easy a bust. The other hand, oh no, we cants offends our rights...
If there had been a hari krishna there with a big book and a glass of carrot juice, I wonder if they could have stopped the knifing maniac.
