I don't think guns would protect against this kind of stabbing.

You don't have to shoot a gun for it to be an effective tool for conflict resolution. In fact, a gun has the capability to send a powerful message without even being fired.

If you are having problems with somebody, all you have to do is point a gun at them and chances are pretty good that they will see things your way and the issue will be resolved.

I always bring a gun with me, and I carry it where everyone can see it. And nobody is going to tell me I can't bring a gun into their building or their place of business, because it is my right as an American to bring guns wherever I see fit. People also know that I am serious about my 2nd Amendment rights and not afraid to put them to use.

If you do the same you will have fewer difficulties in dealing with people.

I've done been accused of carrying a caliber that I've never even owned. I've had my permit for 15 years,and I carry at work and for good reason. The words I read makes everyone that carrys a coward. Ugh

The reason why people always say that Southerners are so much nicer than Northerners has a lot to do with our staunch conservative christian values down here in the south. That pretty much explains why we are better than people who grew up in the North without God. Sadly because of their blighted upbringing most Northerners have no respect, discipline, or manners.
Fascinating unfounded, untrue, and just plain incorrect assumption--that only people in the South know God!'People always say,' is on par with,'I heard,' as a source of information--a RUMOR!'Nicer,''blighted,''pret ty much explains,' and 'better,' are relative terms based on one's own personal beliefs and opinions. Or delusions of smug superiority.

fyi, if you say, "bless his/her heart" before you tell someone something, you can eviscerate anyone with the most scandalous lies and character castrations imaginable. But that's only south of the ole Mason/Dixon Line.
Up north though, "bless it's heart" will only get you punched in the face. I'm just guessing however since I NEVER plan to go to those godless northern locales.

My interpretation of this post is that you equate knowing God with church attendance. Is that correct?

You are certainly entitled to that opinion, of course. My own religious beliefs are out there for anyone who wants to know. Religious zealots of any religion who make their faith some sort of exclusive club are highly amusing--and potentially dangerous. KNOWING GOD is not some regional snobbery. It is an individual thing.

How do you know?The god you.believe in hung you out to dry?Your belief requires no worship,No law.no repentance. no redemption. no salvation. no accountability. no faith.no communication. no works.
Thats not religion that's saying I am a right wing atheist.

ATHEIST: A person who does not believe in the existence of any kind of God or higher power. I DO believe in a God; after that I do not subscribe to any organized religion or their teachings. For religious zeal gone dangerously wrong I cite The Crusades and The Inquisition, among others. I'm not sure others would agree with you about the 'right-wing,' description of me though

WHY EVEN GO TO CHURCH?! IT WILL NOT IMPROVE YOUR LIFE, IT WILL NOT SAVE YOU, IT WILL NOT GIVE YOU AN EXTRA MARK, THERE IS NO GOD OR HEAVEN! ALL THIS BIBLICAL TALES HAVE BEEN GROWN TO KEEP US IN FEAR AND TO KEEP US IN LINE! IF THERE WERE SUCH A THING AS GOD AND SATAN, DON'T YOU THINK THAT A LOT OF THIS BS WRONG DOINGS AND SIN WOULD GO AWAY?! DOES GOD EVER ANSWER ANYONE'S PRAYERS?! DOES GOD EVER FIX A MARRIAGE OR ANY PROBLEMS A RELATIONSHIP HAS?! DOES GOD PAY BACK THE CRUEL FOR ATTACKING HIS FOLLOWERS?! I SAY, I HAVE NEVER SEEN IT! THOUSANDS OF TIMES I'VE ASKED DURING MY LIFE, NOT FOR MONEY OR ANY OTHER STUPID THING BUT, FOR GUIDANCE AND KNOWLEDGE, DID IT EVER HAPPEN, NO! IT'S WORTHLESS, THAT OLD SAYING IF IT SOUNDS TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE, IT PROBABLY IS!

REV, LET ME SHED SOME LIGHT ON YOU! GROWING UP AND UNTIL MAYBE 15 YEARS AGO, I ONCE BELIEVED AND WAS SAVED AND WENT TO CHURCH EVERY TIME BUT, ALL THESE YEARS AND ALL THESE PROBLEMS, THE WRONG DOING THAT PEOPLE ARE DOING, THE ABUSE THAT "GOD'S" CHILDREN/FOLLOWERS ARE PUT THROUGH, PRAYERS NOT BEING ANSWERED, ALL THESE RELIGIONS AND DIFFERENT VIEWS OF DIFFERENT RELIGIONS, COME ON, IF GOD IS REAL, WHY ARE THERE SO MANY DIFFERENT RELIGIONS, WHY ARE THERE SO MANY DIFFERENT WAYS PEOPLE TELL YOU ABOUT THE SAME SUBJECT! WHY AREN'T WE BROTHERS AND SISTERS?! IF HE WAS REAL, AND WE ARE BROTHERS AND SISTERS, WHY ARE WE AGAINST EACH OTHER, WHY ARE WE SO APART FROM ONE ANOTHER, WHY ARE WE LOOKED UPON AS LOWER CLASS PEOPLE?! WHY WITH ALL THE DIFFICULTIES AS I HAVE SPOKEN NOT BEING AWARDED TO THE ONES THAT BELIEVE?! IF "GOD" DID EXIST, THERE WOULD NOT BE BUT ONE RELIGION, ONE BIBLE, ONE OUTLOOK OF THE "PLAN" INSTEAD OF 100'S OF DIFFERENT WAYS! I BELIEVE THAT THIS IS ALL HAS BEEN MADE UP TO KEEP US IN FEAR AND TO HAVE HOPE OF A HIGHER POWER BESIDES OUR GOVERNMENT AND IT GIVES THE GOVERNMENT SOMEONE TO BLAME INSTEAD OF THEMSELVES WHEN SOMETHING MESSES UP! IT GIVES THESE TELEVANGELIST A REASON TO MAKE MONEY ON T.V. AND GIVES THE PREACHERS A WAY TO MAKE MONEY FOR THEIR CHURCH!

theangryguy whose heartfelt material I came to read in 2012 was NOT an evangelist. So I have to ask again: Be you a troll?
