The same argument was presented here in Texas when CC was being considered.Wow. Just, Wow. Looks like all sorts of folks confused but they didn't say nuttin' till the 11th hour! I particularly like the quote by the bill's sponsor saying "I never thought I'd live to see a lawsuit filed to say that the Constitution is unconstitutional, which is basically what they're saying," Gipson told The Associated Press after the judge's ruling. Seems that all our congresscritters inside the 395 beltway have forgotten what the Constitution is all about too!
And, then there's the old one which has bee requoted and will probably be so until the end of time; you know, the one calling for a blood running red in the streets "The plaintiffs are trying to stop mayhem. We're looking at a wild, wild West scenario," Owens said.
This one has been yelled so often, I'm a little surprised its still used. ESPECIALLY SINCE IT HAS NEVER BEEN BORNE OUT IN ANY POST LEGAL CARRY EDICT ANYWHERE THAT CARRY HAS BEEN "LEGALIZED".
Anyway, herre's hoping you get them straightened out fellow TAers and resident Mississipians!
Yeah. That's the kind of comment that democratic gun grabbers would just love to read! I would like to think that comment was just sort of a tongue-in-cheek kind of thing........I would rather be unassuming and mild mannered looking so I could see the look on a perp's face when I draw on him and blow his head off......
Hell, that argument has been made EVERYWHERE where some type of carry provisions have been made. And study after study have been done (at taxpayers expense, I might add) and it has NEVER been borne out in the findings! That is the point I was making. In fact, EVERY study that has been done on violent crime has found LESS violent crime where arming of the citizens (carry laws passed) was involved. Thats why I am so surprised to see it still used as a rallying cry in opposition to carry law provisions!!!The same argument was presented here in Texas when CC was being considered.
I'm still waiting for that bloodbath to begin.
You make the very common assumption that a BG will shoot anyone armed first. While this is a possibility, real world encounters do not support this supposition.I am with most others, I would only OC in rural areas. In cities and burbs, I would only CC. I just would not want to advertise to a BG that I am carrying. If they decide to try anything, they would know who they should neutralize first. I would rather be unassuming and mild mannered looking so I could see the look on a perp's face when I draw on him and blow his head off. On the original topic, Grats MS. Texas had the bill on the books this year, but it did not pass. Should have attached it to the accidental printing bill like your legislature did.
