Your arguments are becoming very far-fetched. Remember that the percent of law-abiding concealed carry holders who end up committing crimes of violence are less than 1/10 of .1%.

Although that scenario is extremely improbable and highly unlikely, lets assume that it is possible. We will say that 10 people with guns, which includes the original shooter, stand up and start shooting. They will all be shooting at people with guns. The amount of people shot will still be far less than the amount shot if only the original shooter had a gun.

Now for the reality: People with concealed handgun permits have to go through training as well as a background check that is very extensive. They are extremely unlikely to pull out their gun and simply start shooting randomly.

How about we do, since they do not work. The theater in Aurora was a gun free zone, so were all of the schools. They prove not to work, if anything they do the opposite of what they were intended to do.

Why have you strayed so far from the topic of this debate???????

So what your suggesting is that we need more gun free zones, since you think they work so well. Gun free zones only prevent honest law abiding citizens from taking their guns into them. When, in the history of mankind, has anyone ever trusted a criminal to obey laws? Signs, and more signs that create gun free zones do nothing. We can not expect criminals to obey the honor system.

It does not build confidence. It promotes laziness and encourages them to do the minimum. If you want to increase confidence, support them. I have 2 sons. My oldest is not built well for contact sports. However, he has tried and failed at some. He is good at track, and he is good at archery. So far he has not received any trophies, but he continues to try harder at the 2 sports he is good at, and he will eventually get trophies. I supported his efforts on everything, and I encourage him to try harder. My youngest son loves football. He has not received any trophies, but he still keeps trying. If either of my kids were to receive a trophy, the only thing they would gain from it; is that it doesn't matter how hard you try or how little effort you put in, you will still receive the same as those who worked hard at it and earned it. Simply put, it is promoting socialism, and I am 100% against it.

If the trophy is so irrelevant; why do you insist that everyone receives one? A trophy is something that should be earned. If they are playing just for fun, as you suggest, then they will have no problem not getting a trophy if they loose.
