NO, guns are bad. Only bad people use guns. You just don't understand the muslims. Just talk to them. They are just like everyone else and can respond to reason. This has been proved many times. Besides good christians should be willing to turn the other cheek. If something gets really out of hand the police will arrive to take care of it.

I agree it's coming, probably when we least expect it. I actually don't think that everybody should carry, some people just aren't cut out for it. They should carry a large can of pepper spray instead, the kind folks carry in the back county. That stuff is great.

So, you're going to get close enough to pepper spray a guy with an AK who is shooting you from 25 feet away? Good luck with that.

Yes. 30 feet away, I carry that (and a gun) when I'm in bear country.

Pepper spray blows back in your face, bit it's better than nothing I guess

My Glock 19 or Springfield XDs works for me and MrsM's Sig P238 works for her

Im 2A supporter but how exactly is responding law enforcement supposed to tell the difference between the "good guys" and the "bad guys"? All they will see are people shooting at eachother. My personal belief has always been that if someone is legally carrying concealed they should make every effort to avoid using deadly force ... including finding as escape route if possible. If you have a way to safely exit, take it.

Newsflash, the terrorists are not going to show up in robes and turbans with Bin Laden beards. They are going to look and dress 'Western'.

Yeah but its easy to sit there take aim and continuously fire on UNARMED people hiding or fleeing for their lives. Not cowardly at all. But it's a lot harder to shoot at people when they can shoot back. Having a AK is all fine and dandy but you can't shoot 360* at one time. You can still only shoot what you're pointing at.
Granted a pistol is not a match for a AK in a heads up straight on firefight but it's better than sitting there waiting for some terrorist Ahole to shoot me while defenseless. I would be carrying every day . I mean if I can I might as well try to smoke you. Because you're sure gonna try to smoke me. I'm not a gun nut by any means but I believe I have the right to defend myself my family or other innocent people in such case.
IF I'm at a mall or restaurant and I'm seeing a guy dressed in any clothes running around gunning down people who are just out living their lives eating shopping and whatnot, well that's a bad guy. It's not a guess. It's a fact. I dont need a FBI briefing to figure it out. Nobody shoots people who are just out enjoying their day. So you shoot them I get to shoot you. Or I'm gonna do my best attempt.
