    Every time I hear of a shooting somewhere I remember this clip. I was just leaving Saint Louis when those riots broke out a few years ago.
    Though tatically its better to leave the windows rolled down all the way and get low in the seat for best protection. The laminated window offers an extra barrier of protection on the door panel from a handgun bullet.

    It is...If you know how to use them. I do! Plus in every state you can get a concealed carry permit!

    Which is why in London.. There where only 7 dead instead of in the double digits.

    Exactly that is true! I agree knives are far less dangerous.

    I didn't want to argue with you, but... If you live in a place where it is easy to get guns, criminals are all going to have guns, right? What do you think is going to happen if you confront a burglar or other criminal, who has a gun, with a gun? Is he going to say, "oh, you have a gun, I won't bother you then, and give you plenty of chance to shoot me as I leave" or is he going to just shoot you? I think the latter. Having a gun makes you, shockingly (/s), more likely to get shot. This is so obvious to the rest of the world, it boggles our mind that Americans don't understand this.

    You are completely wrong I'm not arguing about that! I'm not arguing about if America should get rid of guns or not. I would prefer they did but they wont so there's no reason for pointless arguments. Yes, thats true if you wait of course you will get hurt. I don't wait.You shoot before they get a chance. That's the best that can be done.And before you compare America to other nations; it's quite a large country with a large rural population. It's unlikely they will EVER give up guns; even if the founding fathers hadn't fucked them over.

    I actually have no problems with people owning guns. What I do have the problems with is the current de-regulations that low mentally unstable people *known mentally unstable as noted by doctors, not just "Oh he's crazy" * can buy them.

    When it's illegal to get a Toy Robot because it's so easy to get guns, or it's actually easier to get a gun than it is to vote, you might want to look at some of the regulations.

    Again, I'm not saying that we need to get rid of all of them, but there are steps we can take to minimize some problems.

    Um what? You shoot first ask questions later? So you are worse than a lot of criminals? I hope you don't get a gun, sounds like you'd be in jail soon after :-/ Not to mention the poor person being killed over a possible misunderstanding.

    Can you imagine how bad things would be if everyone had this attitude? It would be worse than the most war torn of third world countries.

    Nah but don't worry. Every american is heavily trained to protect themselves with their guns and protect others too, so it's not an even more trained criminal who takes people by surprise with their gun already out when others have to take theirs out before firing who will manage to harm anyone.

    Not true. In many states it's actually smarter. Especially as many states have stand your ground laws. Um no..I've owned quite a few guns actually. But I should explain further I mean if you know the person is dangerous ofc. You don't just shoot randomly ofc. At one point I had 7 or so. I'm a great gun owner well former gun owner:cry:

    You know Europe isn't perfect right? And that there are a lot of well trained gun owners in the U.S.. Yes there are some who shouldn't own a gun but there's nothing that can be done.
