So you're anti-gun and can't understand how pro-gunners are generally less hysterical and less prone to freezing?

Ok, I see where you're coming from.

You really think with tear gas flying, darkness, body armor, loud noise which resembles gun fire (the movie) and people flying everywhere your buddies would have knocked him off? Ok, maybe there is something on their Bat utility belt that I am forgetting that would better their odds.

I agree you can beat the crap out of him after the punch but you still have a broken nose.

I am not anti-gun. I personally don't want one but I would never say you can't have one.

I am just saying there is probably a handful of people in this country that would have stopped that guy under those conditions.

I also don't understand how a pro-gunner is generally less hysterical and less prone to freezing. Are you quoting a source or is this your opinion? I am confused.

Yes but not really my thing. Some hunting some target practice. A lot of friends that do it so I just tag along.

Re: Gun Control Thread- Should we?

You don't think you would have been better off with one of those friends with a gun defending people or would you rather they just lay on top of you hoping the shooter passes by. I'll take the friend with the gun.

That's odd. I personally know a few hundred people, some close friends or family, that even under those conditions can put a round where it's needed. Helps being ex-Army, I guess.

Most people who take on the responsibility of firearms ownership have a more stable personality, however this is purely anecdotal from my own personal experience. We train, we drill, it becomes automatic. Same with martial arts.

Regardless if you are a excellent marksman how do you shoot someone with tear gas going off and in the dark? Should they carry their gun, gas mask, and night vision at all times?

"OK be safe."

"Always."

Doesn't matter remember it is a sucker punch no way to defend.

Re: Gun Control Thread- Should we?

I just hate the thought that I have to carry a gun in our society to feel protected. Is that what the forefathers wanted? A society so violent and crazy we need to carry firearms everywhere?

Re: Gun Control Thread- Should we?

I like how some think the answer to gun control is more guns.

We sure are a gun f'ing crazy society.
