Right back at you. Why do you want to ban guns? What are you so afraid of?

How did you miss ďmyself and my family ď part???

Reading comprehension or deliberate blindness?

What you can say now, since people donít shoot at people that arenít pointing guns directly at them, and they run instead. You can say when thereís an active situation in a state with open carry laws, you duck the bullets and run like everyone else and let the police take care of it. You help yourself only.
A good guy is any person who is not the bad guy.

Most good guys with guns, who aren't good guys working as police, carry to protect themselves and their families.

If you don't want to carry, that's your CHOICE.

The 2nd guarantees my right to carry, and I CHOOSE. To do so.

If you're ever in the scenario of a mass shooting, your only hope is that the police arrive before a bullet arrives in you.

My hope is that either the police arrive or tgat I can shoot him before he shoots me.

My odds would be better than yours.

Yes and even Family Guy once mentionned black on black crime and the hypocrisy of the medias about that.

Even if someone supports the right of gun ownership, it doesn't take a whole lot of common sense to understand that but that's lacking among a lot of people who say more guns is always better.

With the US's very liberal gun culture (liberal as in ease of access), I haven't seen this be an effective strategy so far compared to other cultures abroad. If this changes and these things aren't happening anymore like they have been in recent years, get back to me on that. I feel like I'm going to be waiting a long time though.
They arenít able-bodied if they have mental illness.

That's why they make airplanes and speedboats.
Lol. you don't think airplanes, ships or trucks pass our borders when entering our country?

You believe our only border is between us and Mexico?

ROFLMAO!!!

Do all you liberals believe this? Do you all believe our only border is between us and Mexico?

Itís because people like you donít care when black folks die unless you can politicize their deaths. Also you use black on black crime as the usual deflection from the issue of the gun problem in this country.
So donít act concerned all of a sudden.

Once again, if you arenít willing to carry and protect yourself or your family, why should anybody care?

Nobody including the police has the obligation to protect you. The courts have ruled unanimously on this multiple times.

I'd argue you're more fearful.

You want to restrict other's rights due to your fear.
