-Buying a THING, does not an act of aggression make. I have owned firearms for over 35 years, and NOT ONCE have they ever been used in an aggressive manner. And if the mere sight of a THING (in this case, a firearm) frightens you, that says MUCH MORE about YOUR mental state than mine.
A: Not much frightens me least of all a gun, but the mentality of those who own weapons, that should only be used in a war zone is down right idiotic.
-And what will you do if they don't show up in time, if at all???
A: The same thing as if I am waiting on a vigilante to save me(neither would be waiting on my beck and call)I imagine the one significant difference is "I know the number to call in an emergency" and I don't know those of the vigilante's.
-Well, do yourself a favor. When bad stuff happens, DON'T call the authorities. Why? Because good guys WITH GUNS will show up wanting to help you, and we wouldn't want you to have a coronary and keel over dead at the sight of a gun.
A: Well cheers for the warning....again, but don't hold your breathe, there Pacha!
-I'm not aggressive, until someone puts me in a position that requires me to get aggressive. When someone brings a fight to you, you don't sit back and let yourself be used as a punching bag or a target.
A: Everything you have stated thus far "IS" aggressive behavior.
-The person who can put their attacker on the defensive the quickest will quickly gain the upper hand in the situation and can usually bring it to a very abrupt end.
A: I have seen my brother in situations like that and so far he has always managed to quiet or control the situation, same goes for my dad, and I always feel safe in their company.
-Just look at the multitude of videos out there where shop owners defended themselves with firearms when attempting to be robbed. The bad guys scatter like roaches when the lights are turned on because they hate it when their intended target is ready for them.
A: I have also seen people defending themselves in those police video's, along with their employers property without the need of a gun....and had success....moot point.
-That is why the bad guys prefer to target the elderly and the weak. And if your first "instinct" is to call the authorities FIRST, your survival instincts suck. Good luck with your govt-sponsored dial-a-prayer. I'll be a little more proactive in my DEFENSE.
A: Well onyer! on your aggressive stance there Pacha, I prefer the defensive strategy and I would have a higher chance of survival if all countries including yours, stopped flooding the world market with drugs and guns? Now just a thought here Pacha! Maybe because you are so busy thinking of the reasons you desperately "need a gun" you missed the most logical one, Why would you or anyone need to fear someone having a gun if there simply were "NO guns" in the first place eh, what do you think?
