That's just stupid! I'm 62 years old and been in a few situations that were life-threatening and involved guns. Universally, more guns by people in a given situation == more stupid shit!
Listen, I'm no pussy Liberal and own 3 guns (Charter Arms 1911-clone; Ruger 10-22 and Ruger Blackhawk .357 magnum, with a 5" barrel) but our country is fucking insane when it comes to guns! Guns have become our new God! Why would I say that? Simple: when you regularly, willingly sacrifice your children and others on a regular basis, you are worshipping your God!
If we ever wake up and decide to do something sensible, I'd happily qualify, license or surrender my guns. No problem. Again, I like my guns a lot, but I do NOT love/worship them to the extent that I'm willing to be complicit in the worship of a false God.
