Wow that is messed up. Arming everyone is the laziest, stupidest way to deal with crime.

What if I want to both feel safe and not have to go to the expense of buying a gun, getting the training or the obvious hassle of dragging a hunk of metal around everywhere with me?

I would not feel safe even then... wouldn't the thug also have those advantages? How is all this better than just running away?

No one is forcing you to own a gun. Even Bill Mahr says "I'll give up my guns when everyone else does."

I've shot a gun many times and I would not trust anyone with one.

It's too much power for the average ignorant citizen. But hey, maybe in all situations where you get to use one it's obvious... thug is a black guy with a knife, decision clear cut, no objections, everything legal, you're the hero.

I go back to convenience. I'm a non-violent competent person, I think society owes me the right to be and feel safe without having to buy, train with and lug around a gun at all times. Wtf do I pay taxes for?

Go one way and you don't need guns, go the other and you don't need police. Pick one.

... and good luck defending yourselves against your government or for that matter anyone else as trained and armed as you... which seems to be most of you... and then good luck living a stress-free life.

That is quite possibly the dumbest argument I've seen for a while. We have police, therefore we do not need guns? I have an honest question to ask you: Do you have a policeman on standby with you at all times? That would be beyond convenient if you ask me. However, considering this is more than likely not the case, your point is invalid. Police are not there for you at all times, and even if they are, it is not their job to defend you. Their job is to uphold the law. It is up to you and you alone to defend yourself, if need be. So no, its not as you say it is. You can have guns and police at the same time. You can go on your merry way without a gun and feel as safe as you want and so will the man or woman you pass in the streets who is carrying a firearm.

Secondly, what was with the random jab near the end there? Of course the American people will defend ourselves against the government if the need comes. Its what the bloody country was founded on. If a tyrannical government took over, the founding fathers would be rolling in their graves if the country just laid down and accepted it. Read the Constitution and a history book some time and you'd know that.

That is the dumbest counterargument so far. I do in fact live somewhere were 911 responds in 3 minutes flat, but more importantly there is almost no crime to speak of to begin with. No, it's not in the US. When the 5th random armed citizen joins the fire fight, how does he know who to shoot at? It's just becomes an escalating bloody mess.

I would trust my own police, I would not trust yours. "To serve and protect" That is their purpose, and they are paid well for it.

The jab at the end? It seems it was justified since fighting back against your gov. is the stupidest idea I've ever heard of. They would squish you like an ant gun or no gun, regardless of numbers.

There exists no trust at any level in your system. No one to rely on, no one to protect you from just about everyone else. The result? 10,000+ dead per year, the 2nd highest murder rate of any developed country. Oh but you get to have your guns, I guess that's more fun, and of course way easier than fixing the system.

I'm glad you got to this guy first I wasn't going to be as nice as you . He says he trust no one with a gun, but puts his full faith in the police to protect him. I face palmed hard on that.

Do you know what a gun does? A person with a gun can still kill you if you run away, you won't run faster than the bullet, genius.

"running away"

What are you? French?

There's only one way to deal with Tyrone and his homies when they want to culturally enrich you.

Next time a guy strolls into a theater with an assault rifle, you try that, ok?
