you are right, suicides are not part of this thread and do not threaten anyone who is out there...that is why suicides are not out there in the news....
..to many follow what is posted on the news and the news post what they know will stir controversy....so we make a big deal about it...point is that guns are not as much a probem for law abiding citizens as they are made out to be by some people
guns are not the problem, often they are the solution.
if a criminal is the only one with the gun, you are at their mercy.
people who talk of giving the gun toting criminal what they want and hoping they leave make me laugh at the idea...hopefully, the criminal does not want more than the innocent passive person is willing to give.
talk about sirens and lights....rofl
the real questions is:
....should someone be able to defend themself with the same type of defense as the criminal has as an offense????
point is that the problem is a people problem, not a gun problem. thats the bottom line.
