    I’ve finally come around to the mindset that with all these fools apparently easily able to get guns, every citizen should arm themselves as well, just to even the playing field. Society has simply gone to hell.

      Yup. You need your car to get to work, but they jack it. You get shot/shot at in a restaurant, gas station, the parks, the ATM, loading your groceries at the store, unloading our groceries at your home, parking lots of bars, your own home, waiting for a bus, it’s ridiculous. But the good hardworking folks are the ones who have to prove who they are, the intent of the gun, been a good citizen with no wants, warrants, record or crazy pills. Kind of a joke.
