...but if everyone had a gun wouldn't that make you feel much safer?
Not in that scenario, no. But the fact that I know there's a guy carrying two rows back in shul does.
No easy answers.

If there is something which helps then why not do it even if it is an incomplete and imperfect answer?
You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can and will be used to start a religious discussion.

No struggle has easy answers. It is a long and difficult road. If you don't start on that road you will never get to the end. It is easy to tell who is part of the problem and not part of the answer.

Not saying we shouldn't, the question is what partial solutions will help without negative consequences. I definitely don't have the answers to any of this, I just like playing devils advocate.

As does the OP :)
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.

I would say Walmart caved inasmuch as I am happy with the decision.

Everyone has a breaking point. I believe Kroger is following their lead.

Stopping the sale of certain ammunition is something I get but I don't understand how asking people not to open carry in your stores accomplishes anything other than political gesturing but maybe I'm missing something.

Some believe that having every yahoo carrying a weapon is not a good idea. I happen to agree with them. The requirements for a carry permit in IL is a joke.

Late to the party (as usual), w/r/t to people carrying in shul - for me it's not so much as who's carrying. I'm fortunate to have several active and retired military and law enforcement people in my shul. I have no issue with them carrying, because they've been trained for many of the possible situations that might arise.

There are others that carry that have permits to do so, but I'm worried that they're more likely to cause friendly fire incidents - i.e. accidentally hitting a congregant.

Now it looks like Walgreens is following. The weakest president this country has ever seen should grow a set and show some leadership.
