Wow, sounds like you yourself are the very thug you're out gunning for. That's just, ironic.
Hey, if Hillary can get away with it, why can't I?

Crime is an element of surprise if anything if those tech students had a firearm it make the criminal EVEN more dangerous.Granted I would be paranoid aswell if i got robbed but doesnt mean im gonna necessary arm myself.If all citizens are gonna be like you and take their law in their own hand,heck what is the point of the police then?

I'm not policing. I'm defending. And I do think more responsible people should carry.

So if they created a law that you should walk off a cliff, would you? There's lots of dumb laws. I don't consider running a red light at 11 p.m. when no cars around, as wrong, but it's a law.

Yeah, that dumb, obsolete law on the books that says, "Stop while the light is red, so that we don't kill other motorists or ourselves." Don't follow that one.

Laws are ment to be obeyed,and if you feel laws are useless then what is the difference between you and those thugs?They believe they shouldnt obey the law,yes their plenty of dumb laws.But if everyone is gonna be like you and ONLY obey laws they feel are right for them then do you wanna live in a law less land?Heck look at our immigrant laws,illegal immigrants believe they can come to this country without going through a legal process.They believe in disrespecting our immigrant laws and want to not face any punishment.Is this the world you wanna live in?A law less land?Can you imagine how our nation be if you everybody had the mentality like you?

What's stupid to me is that you're being the very problem that you're so afraid of. You pick and choose which laws to follow, when you feel like it. If people didn't do that, there wouldn't be any crime. Your robbery incident was just someone else doing just exactly that. Ignoring the law, doing what they felt like they needed to do to get by in their life and its particular set of circumstances.

exactly, thus the need to protect my family from said type of people, and doing it in whatever means necessary, regardless of the law.
