Let gun control carry you.

Always. On duty I'm forced to carry a 9mm but off-duty I carry my .45 G21 Gen4.

Since you think wearing a gun is 'rocking it' I think you shouldn't wear one.

People who say carrying a handgun is unnecessary obviously lives in a nice area with not much crime. I live in philly and it's pretty dangerous even in the so called nice areas you have to be careful.

I don't need to conceal carry because I'm neither paranoid nor endowed with a small penis.

#10 Posted by thegerg (14858 posts) -

I do regularly, but not daily.

The size of ones penis and his mental state have nothing to do with whether or not one needs to carry a gun. That being said, I don't like the idea of those suffering from paranoia (or any mental illness or deficiency) from handling any weapon.

Carrying a concealed weapon requires responsibility and since you want to 'rock it on duh daily', I feel like you're trying to be a tough guy, so I don't know....

I don't carry one around my waist wherever I go, believing that someone could run up to me and start a fire at any moment, no.

You obviously fail to get my point. Let me be more blunt.....why are you insulting people for arming themselves in the eventuality that someone attempts to harm them or their loved ones? Do you ever watch the news? Murders happen every day, are you content with laying down and being a victim for whoever wants to take your life or your property? If you are that is YOUR problem, insulting those who refuse to become helpless victims is just silly. Basically you are one of those holier than thou treehuggers who think people who carrying guns for self defense are the problem rather than people simply reacting to the bad in the world. Such a simpleton.

#25 Posted by vfibsux (4205 posts) -

no, cause I don't have a smass penis

So only people with small penises get assaulted or robbed? Please link me the crime study you got that one from.

But of course that is not what you meant. Amazing how many idiots actually think people arm themselves to compensate for small manhood. It really shows just how ignorant you are.

Don't be dumb. Only the ones that OPEN carry have a small dick.

While I'm not all for civilians having firearms unless it's used for hunting or sport, mostly due to culture difference no doubt.

I must ask though, if you're going to get a gun for protection then why hide it afterwards? Surely having it visible gives off the message that " Anyone try something and I can shoot you" would limit the probability of actually using it.

That just means that somebody a lot tougher and scarier than any of the keyboard warriors on this forum will end up taking the gun off them.

Having it hidden doesn't negate its protective capabilities.

Most states don't allow open-carry, either.

You do seem to lack an overabundance of intelligence, though.

Hmm. Ranges must work very differently where you are.

Yet you have one in your house do you not? Maybe in your kitchen, just in case?

There's no difference. You just happen to think people shouldn't be allowed to defend themselves.

#42 Posted by airshocker (29040 posts) -

I think it's absurd that anybody in this thread thinks they should have some type of say in how somebody chooses to protect themselves.

If someone follows the law and goes through the training that is nine times out of 10 required for conceal to carry, why shouldn't they be allowed to arm themselves?

As to this notion that it's somehow cowardly to carry a firearm for protection? It's even more cowardly not to want to carry something that you could use to protect other people. I hope you have fun cowering if something ever does happen, knowing that you could have prevented it if you were armed.

#43 Posted by Iszdope (9676 posts) -

No.

Guns are effectively banned here.

#44 Posted by Celldrax (14565 posts) -

Nope, no need for that here (they're illegal, anyway).

Never felt safer.

I don't, actually, but there's a pretty significant difference between keeping a firearm in the privacy of my own home (where only my family is in grave danger of being shot) than taking one out in public with the completely irrational fear that someone could attack me at any moment.

I think people shouldn't be put into a position where they need to defend themselves, which is why I don't like guns in public (or in general). It's also why I don't keep a fire extinguisher in my home--I've never needed one because I don't do stupid shit like fall asleep with an open flame on.

This is the problem with you simpleton liberals and your illogical arguments....we do NOT have a gun problem...we have a VIOLENCE problem. You could magically erase all firearms from this country right this second and those with violent tendencies would still find a way to harm others. This is what you do not understand and why we will continue having a human problem as long as you are focused on the weapon and not those using them to kill.

The FACT is we had about 11k homicides committed with firearms in 2012, yet 80 MILLION Americans legally own firearms and did NOT kill anyone. So please tell me why WE, the legal majority of law abiding citizens are the problem here. Please tell me why you have to come in here and insult us because some nutjob killed 20 something kids in Newtown. WE did NOT kill anyone, some nutjob kid did, the very same nutjob WE CARRY TO DEFEND OURSELVES FROM. Get it?

You are all the same, blame the gun not the person, blame the fast food corporation not the fat guy stuffing his face with Big macs every day, blame the 20oz coca cola and make it 16ozs instead. You liberals are always full of these feel good solutions that are never solutions at all.

If you suffer from the "completely irrational fear that someone could attack me at any moment" then thanks for not owning gun. Maybe you should see a doctor.

"..we have a VIOLENCE problem"

When compared to other places, we certainly don't. A place like the UK, for example. has much higher violent crime rates than the US.
