  •  It's like they want to turn us into some wild west (16+ / 0-)

    fantasy. Maybe they see themselves as Clint Eastwood from some old western movie. I wonder if it's occurred to them that  between their open (or concealed) carry laws and stand you ground laws, they'd be sanctioning the carnage we see in our inner cities. Someone comes into your neighborhood and fires a gun? Shoot back....who cares what the collateral damage might be. You're just standing your ground, protecting your turf.

    Really, I think they're less like western movie heroes and more like wannabe gangsters. With everyone armed, it would be like some violent video game come to life. Someone they think looks suspicious pulls out a cell phone and they shoot. The next guy sees them shoot, pulls out their gun and it just goes on and on till you have a full out street shoot out. I don't want to have to wear body armor to walk around the city. What they propose is simply insanity.
