Thats when you lay down your gun and start crying, just like the guy that brought a knife to a gun fight. Cause i'd rather not cause a conflict.

Where as in rural areas it's just like "Wtf why is this the govs problem"
Which kind of goes hand in hand with my argument for defending myself considering I live in an urban area.

Then they'd have a gun and you wouldn't. Obviously guns aren't the answer to society's ills, and cause many problems simply by their existence, but I do not see the ability of a person to defend themselves with something that doesn't rely on physical strength or the ability to be within two feet of the other person to be something that should be taken away. If a dude three times your size enters your home intent on doing whatever the ****, then you're ****ed, but if someone with an AK-47 enters your home with the intent to do the same and all you've got is a Derringer, then it's still probably a stalemate.

Because it's politics. When you start allowing statistics to decide politics is when cherry-picked statistics by whatever party is in power or can best make their case are allowed to pass bull**** laws. You can prove any point with the right statistic, and the right statistic pretty much always exists. I'm not for ideology deciding politics, but something besides numbers is a good counterbalance.

this is true. you can find stats for both sides of the arguement and sometimes you need to look at the bigger picture instead of just specific stats.

No the point is you wouldn't need a gun if there were proper regulations but rural voters don't need those regulations

Taser disarms you faster.. You can fight through the pain of being shot and fire back.. You can't shoot back when your having involuntary convulsions.. aim is still the biggest factor.

If you suck at aiming your gun it doesn't make you any safer.
