Fear the guys in the suits riding limos and private jets. They are the ones making the rules and they do not have your best interests in mind.

Everyone armed is a much better deal. Take a look at the Swiss way, a country with lower crime & a much more liberal European type philosophy.
Guns are not the issue, Gov't mistrust of the citizenry & uninformed paranoia by the sheeple are.

I'm only looking out for myself. I'm not afraid of any physical confrontation. I don't care if the guy standing 6'4" and weighs 300 pounds. Everyone has the same opportunity to be physically capable of protecting themselves. A weapon is not necessary.

Not even a rock or a club.

^To be honest, the fact that I don't trust other people--even unarmed people--is not an act of cowardice by any means. It's about self-preservation. I fully expect other people to attack me for no apparent reason. I keep myself prepared for that eventuality--but I also avoid being around other people as much as I can.
