I walk freely every day knowing others may have a gun and it doesn’t bother me in the least. I’ve carried a gun for over 20 years as a civilian and not ONCE have I EVER had to draw it. I might add that if you have a right to walk freely unarmed, that should not infringe upon my own rights to walk armed. A gun tool, nothing more.
[/QUOTE]A tool? A tool for what? To kill someone? It is a weapon not a tool. Screwdriver is a tool. I guess it is something some people cannot understand. You are used to this and you a tradition and it is a kind of a weapon culture.
What are the numbers? How many murders, intentional or by accident do you have there? How many times you had a guy taking a gun and shoot some random people? I am not saying that this wouldn’t happen if you are not allowed to carry a gun i just think that the problem began a long time ago when you got used on it. It really isn’t a normal thing to carry a loaded gun around, whatever you say.
