A trained good guy with a gun didn’t stop a bad guy with a gun.

I’m sorry to hear the guy was gunned down in front of a courthouse, but that isn’t exactly a gun-free zone. The fact is, a lot of gunmen are opportunists, and there’s no possible way you can defend yourself - with a gun - every moment of every day. It isn’t like every shooter announces their intentions ahead of time, so you can prepare.

The NRA’s wet dream is an epic fucking shootout at any given moment. The problem is lots of the wrong people can get shot that way. As this carry-at-all-times hysteria escalates, that’s exactly what will happen. And chances are, the target(s) of the shooter will already be taken out before it becomes a shootemup involving armed onlookers. So what has that accomplished?

A reality that’s sadly lacking in the NRA and gun lobby talking points.

I think many of the people who hate gun control believe this silly photo.

They think it will be like this. That the bad guy will fight fair. Snort. Dreaming in Technicolor.

And oddly, last I checked this wasn’t being discussed on conservative sites….

Only the fool feels safer with a pistol. Fact is you can be carrying in your hand and have it cocked and still get shot dead. This was a lawman whose entire life depended on instinct and observance. What would make a wanna be pistolero any better? The NRA wants you to think armed means bullet proof. Safer. Better. It’s a lie.

Well, I did find this on the World’s Leading Obama Eligibility Challenge Web Site
