If I don’t answer it’s because I get your point and agree. Let someone else who disagrees reply why if they think you’re wrongCriminals break the law, and they will attack people....they stop attacking the individuals who point guns at them....
So if you want to be robbed, raped, beaten, stabbed or murdered.....and not have a gun to stop it...go for it....
You just don't have a Right to make that decision for the other 330 million Americans....
Meanwhile....according to the Centers for Disease Control, Americans use their legal guns 1.1 million times a year to stop rapes, robberies, beatings, stabbings and murders.....
Just recently, the 2021 Firearms survey put that number at 1.67 million times a year....
I notice you didn't answer any of my questions.....afraid?
How do you explain the fact that as more Americans owned and carried guns, our gun murder rate went down 49% and our gun crime rate went down 75%......?
Care to explain?
Over the last 27 years, we went from 200 million guns in private hands in the 1990s and 4.7 million people carrying guns for self defense in 1997...to close to 400-600 million guns in private hands and over 19.4 million people carrying guns for self defense in 2019...guess what happened...

Gun Homicide Rate Down 49% Since 1993 Peak; Public Unaware
Compared with 1993, the peak of U.S. gun homicides, the firearm homicide rate was 49% lower in 2010, and there were fewer deaths, even though the nation’s population grew. The victimization rate for other violent crimes with a firearm—assaults, robberies and sex crimes—was 75% lower in 2011 than in 1993. Violent non-fatal crime victimization overall (with or without a firearm) also is down markedly (72%) over two decades.
A woman is grabbed by a violent serial rapist at a bu
Two more questions....
1) A woman is about to be dragged from a train platform, a bus station, or a rapist is in her home/apartment......should she have the right to own and carry a gun to stop that rape?
2) A woman stops a rape with a gun, in a public space....if you had the ability to go back in time, and prevent her from having that gun...would you?
