    Many times, just the display of a firearm has possibly saved lives. But unless shots are fired, you’ll in most cases never even hear about it.

    WELL now in my defense I went to school during the integration era so I was busy throwing rocks, setting crosses on fire and getting my white uniform and pointy hat cleaned. so I really didn't have time to get indoctrinated by the teachers!
    besides guns are evil they have no useful purpose!

    The facts and the truth don't support their agenda so they must be distorted and trampled. All they care about is disarming Americans so they can shred our Constitution without the fear of patriotic reprisals. How many of us took an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic? Those words carry little weight by an unarmed populace.

    I remember something someone said in my college physics class that stuck. He said “When the facts dispute the theory, they must be thrown out!”

    We all know all of this is hypocrisy at it's finest. SO what do they call a mass shooting? Two or three people involved? So 95% of mass shootings are drug lords fighting it out. Nobody mentions that. Oh and these shootouts are occurring in the areas with the toughest gun laws imaginable. Nobody mentions that.

    I just read an article that points out there were 53 "mass shooting" related deaths last month. It also pointed out that in the same month 40,00 people died from obesity related illnesses. It doesn't add but I will that there are over 70,00 opioid related deaths every year. Who's working on that?

    I wish that instead of pointing out some mass shooter killed a bunch’a people that they would say “so and so” is facing “x number” of murder charges. Bring the illegality of the act back into the highlight and leave the people guessing as to how they did it.

    Like “Colonel Mustard did it in the WalMart in the hardware section”.

    The first lesson in economics is scarcity: there is never enough of anything to satisfy all those who want it. The first lesson in politics is to forget the first lesson in economics. - Thomas Sowell

    I can't remember how many times I put my hand on my pistol in the holster as a LEO and just stood there waiting on the person to back down. They did every time. How many others as former LEO's had that happen in there career. I never did put that in a field report either. You just saved lives by letting someone know you were ready to draw and shoot to kill, and not ready to back down. My two cents.

    Absolutely. In the first link I provided in this thread https://americangunfacts.com/ - 3/5 polled felons say they won’t mess with an armed victim.

    If the criminals are saying it themselves, who do we believe. THEM or Beto O'Rourke and Chuckie Schumer?
