I used to carry a loaded M-16 around with me along with, not one, but two handguns, a commando-style fighting knife, a machete, and a pack of Camels. This was in VIETNAM in 1971 and ‘72 though. Whatever this nutcase might think, Atlanta is not as dangerous as that.
(Probably shouldn’t have included the Camels. I was just making a list of lethal stuff and thought of them. As you see, I survived both war and Camel addiction, though it was a close run thing in the latter case.)

It’s actually pretty sad. Not to mention dangerous for him and others.

It’s actually pretty sad. Not to mention dangerous for him and others.

It is a bit sad how this fear leads a person to buy a battlefield weapon with money his family doesn’t have so that he feels “safe” on a simple trip to the grocery store. Conservatives promulgate this idea that being a man requires one to defend his family by force if necessary. The NRA and the gun manufacturers extend that by saying a gun ownership is a requirement of every American. More guns leads to more negligent shootings, more hot-headed shootings, more shootings by police officers worried that everyone has a gun.

…. More guns leads to more negligent shootings, more hot-headed shootings, more shootings by police officers worried that everyone has a gun.

note that if you turn that statement around, it dont work:

More less guns leads to more negligent shootings, more hot-headed shootings, more shootings by police officers worried that everyone has a gun.
