Are you saying no one in the Walmart shooting had a gun?
Giving everyone a gun would only make us much more unsafe. Can you imagine any large event where dispute/fight breaks out. What do you think is going to happen if everyone has a gun?
Do you disagree that they can reduce casualties?

Yes they can but I look at the big picture. It would be a net loss.

not so sure abt the death penalty as many mass killers have also been suicidal
Mass shooters (and I guess any public shooter) would be killed by the public before death penalty could come.

I don't know which Walmart shooting you're talking about. Yes I agree somewhat about the fights. I could be wrong about the death penalty helping.
That has had zero effect but I am 100% for it based on different reasons.
And those are?

Punishment fits the crime.
In most of these cases the death penalty would not come close to fitting the crime. Something like a blowtorch comes to mind. Not bad for a bleeding heart liberal?

The bigger question is do more armed individuals make us safer. We can look at individual situations that suit our viewpoint but that will not solve anything.

Texas has more mass shootings recently than any state. The ban guns side can say that is proof that more guns is not the answer.
For better or worse we can't get rid of guns in this country.
Given that, I don't see why teachers and churchgoers shouldn't be armed if they want to be armed.

It's absurd that universal background checks aren't standard, but that's another story.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

There are some restrictions which make sense and can help such as restricting high capacity magazines.

Sure, but I don't see why allowing guns in churches is insanity.

I hear the argument both ways, but imagine if every brawl could so easily turn into a gunfight.

36yo Seth Aaron Ator. His criminal record consists of “Criminal Trespass” on August 1, 2001. A second charge for evading arrest was filed the next day.
I wonder where he was heading when he was stopped. The trooper trying to pull him over might have averted a much bigger tragedy. This was definitely more than road rage.

But we have to stop the growth. There are some guns you can make illegal to own.
Given that, I don't see why teachers and churchgoers shouldn't be armed if they want to be armed.
Very few would take the necessary training they should have.

I just watched a video of a brawl at a Rams game. No doubt they if anyone there would have had a gun it would have been drawn.

...but if everyone had a gun wouldn't that make you feel much safer?
