    Assume everyone is armed. Makes society more dangerous, not less IMO. The libs with guns are not on our side unless they have suffered a loss like Congresswoman Giffords. Guns are more important than people.

    There seems to be a lack of understanding that the public is at risk. But who cares about humans. All it does is make the arms dealers and the NRA richer.

    Like, GZ put the public at risk and can again.

      The first thing any newly appointment town marshal or sheriff did to clean up towns in the old west was to require weapons to be turned in.  Town after town, that's how they stopped the killing.

      We know from our own history what to do. The claim that having gunslingers all over town as a means to reducing death and violence is pretty laughable.
