I will now stop this moronic debate.
If anyone wishes to read the previous posts then I feel my point has been made.
People who carry weapons are typically underprepared, violent and undereducated.
have a great weekend. lol
If the USA is going that paranoid i'm amazed they can take a shower or any other activity that involves water or both hand without one hand being on a gun sometimes and i have this vision of bubba on the can with a 12 bore pointing at the door
If they have to live in constant fear in the USA then its certainly doing something wrong.

Never mind the potential of the bad guy turning tail and running right back out because he saw the tenant was armed and able to defend himself/herself.
Really awful how people are "murdered" on our roads and highways more often than they are killed by gun-toting people who refuse to accept # from idiots who have no moral sense at all and deserve no consideration anyway.
Most of the people in the U.S. don't have enough common sense to be behind the wheel, let alone possess something that projects force over great distances.
Better hope TPTB don't decide there isn't enough profit in allowing you to drive. Once things cost more money than they earn, they're gone.
Two Islamic radicals were just found guilty of the death of a UK soldier in your country. Did that soldier (God rest his soul) live in fear? Probably not until the moment he was attacked. Did he feel fear at that moment? Probably a great deal. Would that soldier still be alive if the UK hadn't taken the ability to defend yourselves away from you? Possibly so.
Seems to me that the UK is doing (or has already done) something wrong.
The point is, the right to defend yourself, your family, and your home is an unalienable right, in the US at least. The right to keep and bear arms is an unalienable right, in the US. People who wish to exercise those rights, so to NOT end up as that UK soldier, are not living in fear. They are living with the full knowledge that this world is turning into an increasingly dangerous place, and they wish to be prepared for ANY eventuality. Because that danger could come at you from any direction, at any time.

I feel sad for you if you feel the need to carry a gun/weapon in order to feel safe.
It is your right but.....whatever. Some people are thick.
