    I recall at least 4 documented cases of handguns in civilian hands stopping or minimizing the rampages of mass murderers: (Tyler, TX; Appalachian State; the recent church shooting; armed schoolteachers in Israel recently killing 2 terrorists before any children were killed) and several more are available if you start googling. So we can demonstrate conclusively that concealed carry laws and/or private handgun ownership can prevent/minimize mass murders.

    Look up the Luby’s shooting in Texas if you want to see what happens when the law abiding are disarmed. A civilian who left her handgun in her vehicle, to avoid breaking the law, testified later that she watched her parents slaughtered while having ample opportunity to shoot the bad guy, had she been armed. This mass murder led to a movement for concealed carry reform in Texas and (after her veto of the reform) the loss of the governor’s office by Anne Richards to George W Bush.

    So we see what happens when law-abiding civilians are disarmed (VT, NIU, Columbine, mall shooting, Luby’s): mass murderers kill until they tire of it and then they kill themselves. And we see that it is possible for civilians to protect themselves and others without causing carnage themselves.

    So the anti-gunners better change their arguments to match the public record, or they will be ignored from here on out as the adults using reason rather than emotion decide what to do.

    The problem is that too much of the public is too stupid/lazy to check the public record.

    “The problem is that too much of the public is too stupid/lazy to check the public record.”

    Acually, it’s more like “dont want to check the public record” in the case of the antis. Cant have those annoying FACTS ruin one’s cherished beliefs can we?

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
