Perhaps I will. See how that works? You can't predict the future, stop pretending you can. Next week when your wife/girlfriend/husband/boyfriend cheats on you and you catch them in bed and have a side arm sitting on the dresser next to the door, you can say with 100% certainty you wouldn't pick it up and fire away? If you say "That won't happen", you'd be lying because you don't know that it wouldn't.
You keep saying I am making you out to be all sorts of things. The truth is, it's all based on things you've said. Sorry.
Back again with your lies and circular logic I see.
You claim he cant predict the future, yet neither can you, despite your claims that he and every other gun owner is going to snap and kill someone.
In fact he is a far better advocate for his future than you ever will be, he controls his actions, I believe him far more than anyone else when it comes to "predicting" his future actions.
If only some people would take their own advice....
Or you could just learn something and take his.
So that justifies letting everyone have a weapon?
What scares me more is you think killing someone is justified in most situations.
Someone breaks in. Kill them.
Someone mugs you. Kill them.
Someone tries to rape you. Kill them.
There are alternatives, rape alarms, pepper spray, etc..
I wont commit to trying to comb through all of his posts, but I don't believe KingCracker or anyone here advocates outright killing someone as a goal in a self defense scenario, in any situation where a firearm is used in self defense, you shoot only with a goal of stopping the threat, nothing more.
Why will we never understand, Brits used to own guns before we realised that letting general public have guns is a recipe disaster after mass shootings and murders. It's not like weve never owned or never been able to own guns.
We wanted guns banned, the government didnt just take them away, we are just more civilised.
From what I can understand the lack of public resistance was from multiple factors, multiple decades of government encroachment and restriction of firearms ownership, and massive government propaganda campaigns in the 70's to late 80'S depicting overly graphic portrayals of gun violence and hyperbole regarding gun ownership. A brief read through your own history shows that for the most part, you have never really had access to anything meaningful, and your right to defend yourself was stripped away a long time ago.
Actually after reading that history of how the British government orchestrated what they did, I can appreciate how you came to your point of view a little better, If I had grown up in the UK and had it hammered in to me for all my life how terrible firearms and defending myself was, I would probably think I was right when I repeated everything the government told me to as well.
Your version of civilized means that bands of thugs are allowed to freely rob, assault, rape and murder whoever they wish with no fear of reprisal...doesnt sound terribly civilized at all.
