Keep It At Home

CLICK TO REACT Facebook

Some players probably and sadly do need guns. However, it's one thing to keep it at home, thats much more understandable. But why do you need one at a New York night club? Why do you need to be carrying it on your person throughout the day? I dunno. Plax needs to be a poster boy -- more people are gonna die because of this. Some already have.

You're right, we should all disarm. There are three ways that come to mind. One is to change the text of the constitution to forbid or further restrict gun ownership. The second is to subvert the wording of the constitution, that is to redefine the meaning of the text to place it in a modern context. The third is to ignore the text as it is written. The first is by far the most difficult. The second and third options have enjoyed wide success. What would you recommend?

Re: Lindly: It's so sad that you can't see the difference between a call to voluntarily forego an activity, and a call to illegalize that activity.

Things are really far gone when merely suggesting that there could be a single situation in which carrying a gun is not prudent is interpreted as an attack on the right to bear arms.

To make an analogy, one can perfectly well be supportive of a woman's right to have an abortion while urging a pregnant woman in such and such a circumstance to choose not to have one.

Remember, there is nothing to fear but fear itself. I hope you find comfort.

Re:Don't be scared: You may be correct in your first paragraph in that I missed the writers point, but if so, then we're both somewhat guilty.
But back on point, and in direct response to the writer: Why do you need to be carrying it on your person throughout the day?
A quick search of crime stats roughly indicates that, on a per capita basis, the level of serious crimes committed increases as a function of the size of a city. And this took place in New York City, right?
