If you don’t carry your own gun and don’t care about protecting your own life, why should I care about you?

I carry all the time and will NOT use to protect others as I know they wouldn’t do for me.

Are you wanting to do away with things like search warrants and allow police to enter anyone's home in order to reduce crime?

It’s a cultural thing.

Because we Americans particularly the media like to glorify mass murderers and serial killers.

Seriously? Do you think the shooter asked permission to shoot people? It's like a restraining order against a spouse abuser. The order is only as good as the paper it's written on.

People, use your brain for what God gave it to you. THINK. Criminals will do what they are determined to do regardless of laws, restrictions. Laws and locks are for honest people, not those with criminal intent.

Reportedly, 2.8 million under the age of 19 are prescribed stimulants in the US. Such scripts are not limited to the US.

Obviously most of those prescribed do not engage in mass shootings.

There is little to no factual information about the historical prescriptions of mass shooters. There is no national data base of historical scripts. Most were not under the influence of anything at the time of the shooting.

Use of stimulants to neutralize hyper activity, inability to concentrate and impulsivity is relatively common in Canada, Australia, Northern Europe, Hong Kong and China.

Wow. This speaks for itself about "the more guns the better" mentality, in their own words.

Yeah the gun nuts motto changed from “good guy with a gun” to “I only use my gun to defend me” all of a sudden. So the good guy with a gun was all BS.

So you don’t care about protecting yourself and your family but expect others to risk their lives to protect you????
