If some large person was coming at you with a knife, would you want to have a gun?

One very important purpose for owning a gun is evening the playing field. No longer do the strongest meanest bullies in our world have the upper hand. No longer can a six foot 5 inch brute feel he can have his way with weaker individuals. Criminals must now fear the great equalizer... the gun.

Since time began, intelligent people understood the need for protecting our nations and families from the evil around us. We were at the mercy of the strongest, but with each new invention able to help facilitate the rule of law. No longer living in fear of mob rule, we created the gun.

Yes, the criminal of course would also have the gun, but guess what? No matter how big and mean he was, that 100 pound woman could stop him with one bullet.

Ask yourself why the Democrat Party is so opposed to College women having the right to a concealed weapon for protection from rapists? Why does the Left want to take guns from law abiding citizens, whereby only the criminal would have guns? Does that make sense to you?

We all know that prohibition does not work, because those who would break the law will still get their guns or alcohol. So ask yourself why the Left, and why Socialist nations, and why dictatorships around the world, take the guns as their first act?

It's all about control! To control the people, a corrupt Government must make sure only they have the ultimate power. Only then can they dictate their self serving laws to the people.

The gun was the back breaker to the evil of this world. It evened the playing field, and gave the civilized a chance. 

With every rare mass shooting used by the Left to spew their anti gun rhetoric, there are millions of families protected from would be criminals who can no longer blindly break into your home without fear of you having a gun.

I guarantee you that every Liberal anti gun hypocrite on these debate sites, and in the Democrat Party, would want to have a gun when confronted with a strong man with a knife.

We realize that with freedom, comes a cost. Yes, a free nation might have to deal with the possibility of increased gun deaths, or alcohol related deaths, etc., but when that intruder breaks into your home or concert, your freedom of gun ownership is well worth the cost.

We've found the one thing that we actually agree upon completely.

Thank you, we all need to start somewhere. Keep reading and who knows, maybe you will find something else to agree on. Maybe I will agree with things you say.

When something makes sense, even when it goes against a person's Party, that is the beginning of intelligent thought.

So be honest, if you were in an alley, and some thug was coming at you with a knife, would you want the freedom to have a gun for protection?

I would definitely want to have a gun, because I would have a way bigger chance of survival. I mean, lets face it, when you take a knife to a gun fight, the gun will win every time. It is just common sense. And especially in the world we live in today, you probably want to carry one around everywhere you go so that you always are prepared in case you are in trouble.

Exactly, you are using simple common sense. Those on the Left refuse to use common sense because their ultimate goal is controlling the people and forcing their political correct ideology.

To control the people, you must first disarm the people.

It's only a probability , because some people is too good for them to hold a gun just like Desmond Doss who were recruit as a military on World War II to fight against Japan they had been tested to shoot the dummy but Doss insisted nor did he Dare to lay a single finger on the rifle , as a Christian he believed it is wrong to kill. He goes in the battlefield without firearms yet he has saved 74 of his wounded teammates . You see , there was a large group of terrorist coming at Doss but he still survived without having a gun. He retired his service after the war and he died March 23 2006. My point here is just to show why some people thinks the opposite of your opinion , hope you understand.

You don't seem to understand the way this works. If you get a gun, then so does the guy trying to kill you. In a country where guns can be bought at Walmart, why the living fuck would anybody try to kill you with a knife, which is an inferior weapon?

The price you pay for your own gun is arming your attacker with a gun. Hence, contrary to your assertion in which you acknowledge only half of the equation, your chances of survival are in fact much lower.

If you own a gun, keep it at home. The police has enough guns on the streets to protect you................................................................it is their profession and job to properly handle and use guns on the streets (backed by law).

Are you serious?

Tell me the last time the police got to the mass shooting before people were killed.

Tell me when that Police officer happens to be there when that rapist attacks a woman.

POLICE COME AFTER THE KILLING IS OVER WITH, AND THEN THEY DO THEIR JOBS TRYING TO CATCH THE KILLER.

GET REAL!

Why does the mass shooter have a gun in the first place?...

Is a knife not enough to cut off the dick of a rapist in his attempt?? Why waste the whole body?

The mass shooter wouldn't be able to commit a mass shooting if you didn't insist on selling him a gun, you dangerously insane dope.

Isn't that pretty much the canned, liberal, default response to every political question?

You christians have killed enough witches and even people who you accused of witch craft who weren't witches at all. For that I think the witch would sacrifice you instead and raise your child as a witch so it won't be beaten every time it doesn't praise the lurd.
