It's your right to save your life if threatened. You v=can be a victim or a survivor, it is your choice NOT the Governments.

If you are being mugged then call the police. They will arive in 5-10 minutes. If you lie and say you will shoot the mugger, the police will arrive in 2 minutes.

The US has far more victims of gunshootings compared to countries that forbid it. Isn't that reason enough? I mean who are you fooling?

In Nevada, we can carry openly with no licence or cocealed with a permit. Arizona doesn't even require a CCW to cary concealed anymore. Sounds like your state laws suck.

No, that's not reason enough. That you don't understand the concxept of rights and liberties is duly noted though.

Rahm (it down your throats) Emanuel and the Peoples Republic of Illinois assure you that when seconds count, the police are only minutes away.

Oh, and Ponco, Hosea, Hoseb and Hosec - CHICago, Ill is a sanctuary city. Go and enjoy the free ride. I know it's colder than Cali but you can still stand on the corner and pick all you want.
Hell, they'll probably even give you your own gun out of the stockpile that they took away from legal citizens.

Obama signs Pro Gun Bill Ron Paul Voted Against.

By unanimous consent, the Senate passed H.R. 5552 on August 5th. It was signed into law on August 16th, and became Public Law 111-237.
The legislation will allow firearm and ammunition manufacturers to pay federal excise tax on a quarterly basis, just as other industries do. In the past, firearm and ammunition manufacturers were unfairly mandated to pay their federal excise taxes biweekly while all other manufacturers paid their taxes quarterly. Obviously, this requirement created an undue burden on the industry. In addition to being equitable, the change to a quarterly excise tax payment schedule will allow firearm and ammunition manufacturers to reinvest funds into researching and developing new products, purchasing new manufacturing machinery and creating jobs without establishing a new tax, adding to the burgeoning federal deficit, or using any bailout money.

http://libertysblog.com/2010/08/obama-signs-p...

Obama signed the bill despite a controversial clause inserted in the legislation by allies of the gun lobby group National Rifle Association.
The language permits gun owners to carry concealed weapons in national parks, a rule which gun control advocates complain threatens public safety.
