    People are definitely killed every day by being beaten up - healthy strong people also.

    I live in a major city. I can't think of a time if ever that someone randomly decided to threaten me and tell me they were going to "kick my ass" in the way you described.

    You can live in fear your entire life or you can live your life. I don't understand this mentality where if you didn't have your gun on you 24/7 you'd be at constant risk of death. It just doesn't happen.

    If someone randomly and suddenly attacks you, you'd be incapacitated before you could use your gun. If someone robbed you with a gun, I imagine you're not going to start a quickdraw contest.

    When we stop putting leaders from the past up on pedestals and ignoring their flaws, we can start seeing our present leaders for what they really are.
