Yup, and how easy it is to go get a gun from the purse when a gun is being held at one's head. Easy peasy! You just push the perp's gun away, walk to the purse, get the gun, aim, and shoot. Yeah, having a gun is just so useful.

lol.

Only a moron would walk face first into a .38.

Too bad they don't try it more often. Earth is too small for idiots.

Yes, cause we all know that is how a rape/robbery starts, they ALL start off where the bad guy already has thier gun at your head....yep, that's it....that's how thye all start....

Again, I'm waiting to see where anyone said all crime will stop if you have a gun...

Actually.. I'd just shoot through the purse if I had a gun to my head...

You're living in a movie world. Pure fantasy, in which you're the star, and nothing can ever happen to you because you have you're a magical gun owner.

Are you sure about this???

Too many people walk face first into real assault rifles. Is that because those rifles shoot .223 instead of .38?

And how will you get to the gun in your purse? Do you keep your hand in there 24/7, ready to shoot as you're shopping, as you're walking around, in your home, at night? Nobody can come at you from behind? You've got as many eyes as a fly does? Guns do not guarantee that you will have the gun in your hand, that you will not be overpowered, that you will not be caught off guard, that you will not be held up, that you will not be taken by brute force, or that the gun will jump out at you, place itself in your hand, aim by itself, and shoot before the perp can get you from behind and hold a gun to your head.

It's lunacy to imagine that guns do all that, when all they are is a tool for killing, as good or as bad as the situation lends itself to.

Also, life isn't a movie in which the gun hero situation is just perfectly written to suit the gun hero, so that he is able to have perfect and ideal access to his gun, aim perfectly, and hit a target perfectly with 0 nerves, with no worries, with robot-like perfection.

Buy 100 more? Why in God's name would you need 1001 guns?
