    this is in the CDZ because it gets a little old when some start talking sex organs and guns.....

    soooo....

    We are constantly told that if you carry a gun you are afraid.

    Is this true.

    No.

    Carrying a gun for self defense is a rational response to the reality that even though I know where I live is ver safe, there are still criminals out there and that you never know when one will target you. These things happen every day, in every state, in every country.

    How much fear goes into carrying a gun...for me....there is about as much emotion to carrying a gun as there is carrying my cell phone.

    Now....the other side...the one that is constantly accusing my side of being afraid.....I believe that fear is what they feel....especially about guns. The don't like people, but they hate guns in the hands of people.

    For example.

    There are over 3,700,000 AR-15s in private hands in this country.

    Each year maybe, maybe, 2-3 are used in any type of crime or even a mass shooting.

    With those numbers, those who I believe fear guns want all AR-15s banned from private hands. To me, that is real fear. The numbers show that the odds of being a victim of a violent attack by an attacker with an AR-15 are so remote...you would actually have more of a chance of running into Big Foot and Elvis having Lunch with Aliens.....

    And yet, they call for all AR-15s and other rifles like it to be completely banned.

    And yet even if AR-15s are completely banned, there is not one crime that is committed on those rare occasions where an AR-15 is used that cannot be done to the same effect with a pistol, shot gun or other rifle or a combination of those......

    Yet we are called scaredy cats for wearing a gun like we wear a cell phone or buckle our seat belts.

    To a rational person....who sounds more afraid of guns...who sounds more filled with actual fear...?

    CDZ is not my strong point but I would say they are Gun-a-phobic.
    Its not gun owners they are afraid at least not directly. They fear the gun, it is just a man made object with no ability to arm or fire itself.
    And in many cases just the sight of one sets them off kind of like mice or spiders.

    So you would argue that a communist society IS a "civilized society?"

    Carrying a gun when going into a situation that could be dangerous is rational. Carrying a gun every moment you are outside your door... that is fear.

    And how do you know this. There are thousands of if not 10s of thousands of people who go outside, and get robbed, raped and murdered, never expecting that to happen........and had no idea that that was the day it was going to happen.....

    Even in Joe Biden's neighborhood, and Barak Obama's Chicago neighborhood they have had violent murders.......

    Let us know when you convince the uncivilized not to carry guns in our civilized society.

    When they stop carrying, I'll stop carrying
