id only shoot if they were in the process of trying to stab me.

i think if i pulled my piece on a robber with a knife and aimed right at their face, they'd most likely shit themselves and run away.

guns tend to have that effect. you dont even have to pull the trigger and it can stop crime.

either that or id pull by switchblade and say "lets go motherfucker"

What is a normal citizen?

One who respects the law? The Constitution?

But can you outrun the person holding them.

What is a "normal" citizen?
Law abiding?

That's pretty much the type of society that New Labour have created. One where driving 1mph over the speed limit is a big deal but nothing is done about knife crime. I am Irish, not British, but we have the same kind of thing here.

I utterly despise New Labour. I mean that.

Not my point, my point was to find where the line is drawn for "normal" "law abiding" citizens.

One who isn't trained and certified and has no reason to have a gun.

I personally believe guns should be restricted to cops and those with hunting licenses, and that there should be a system of requirements and training before one can obtain a hunting license. Strict limitations on gun ownership.

That only proves that you take away the guns and people will always find some other way to kill you. It'll never stop. I've heard of people beaten to death with bricks, broom handles, hammers, whatever is handy.

edit, just saw this

Oh yeah, forgot the baseball bats! My aunt keeps one behind her door at all times.

How about Trap and Skeet? Can we have guns too?

yes, people in prison even find ways to kill people with plastic spoons.
but how successful are they?


what happens when a couple of prisoners get their hands some of the guard's guns.


how much is the murder rate changed when they get guns?
