Yes, it's happened to me. But I didn't feel quite as threatened as I have on several occasions while driving. Nonetheless, I haven't developed some kind of complex that leads me to go around saying that people should only be allowed to drive monster trucks with three tires.

And the fact that approximately 3,000,000 Americans are licensed to carry a concealed pistol hasn't changed the fact that you're at least a hundred times more likely to be killed in a car accident than you are to be shot accidentally [and of course you're almost always the one who does it when it happens]. And that's what you haven't done-- explained why a pistol is more dangerous than any other gun. And if you don't want to invite the jealous defense of liberty, don't propose arbitrary restrictions upon its free exercise.
