    we don’t "need" to carry a gun to go out to dinner in an up-scale part of town. Why cant you duke it out like a man, a gun is just going to get somebody killed over a stupid argument. Carrying a gun for protection is a little extreme. Gun owners live in fear....

    "Why cant you duke it out like a man , a gun is just going to get someone killed over a stupid argument."
    I don't and wouldn't "duke it out" , that is called fighting and you can get hurt or go to jail for fighting.
    Sounds like some one needs to learn the difference between self-defense and fighting.
    Over the years , I have had many a "stupid argument" and have never killed anyone over it. I would bet the rest of us here could say the same.
    Most of the Antis "common sense" seems more fearful of what could happen , but what hardly ever does happen, a lack of understanding about guns and most gun owners and the Antis need to punish all gun owners for the acts of law-breakers , strikes me as a lack of common sense.

    Well because nowa days folks like to put the boots to you to make a good showing on You tube.
    Nobody wants to "just duke it out" ,they want to go all getto and curb stomp
    But in the case above,even having a gun may not have helped.You couldn't really pull it without going to jail.
    Well I guess your head wouldn't have been leaking

    I take any attack or threat of violence to myself or my family as a threat to major bodily harm or death.

    Beware of the old man, he's too old to fight. So odds are he'll just kill you.

    I consider myself and old man.

    First of all I would have never let those schmucks get that close to me, second Id've had my hand on the pistol grip ready to pull my CCW, third Id've not verbally engaged them in the first place because my eyes would've told them they only had seconds of good health left.

    Fact. o_O



    Plus, walking around at night in a section of town heavily populated by homosexual people with a hat that says, "Packers" is asking for it! :D

    I boxed two years in college, way back when, and paid for textbooks with the $50 I got for a once-a-week smoker at the local VFW or Elks hall. There is no way I'm going to 'duke it out' with some drunken punk on the street. He's younger, faster, avoids rules, and the last time he was violent was probably yesterday.

    I guess they dont realize how many people die from simple blunt force trauma every year.

    So they're telling us an 80 year old woman should duke it out rather than carry a firearm? Cute.

    Well that sucks for football fans:(.


    They are probably going to try and have football outlawed and you can only watch games after background checks and 4 hours of training....


    No offense to sports fans but Religion, Politics, Territory, Cash and Sports should be the 5 deadly sins lol.

    The few times I've heard gun-control types make this statement, and someone's followed up with the right questions, the person ends up being some 20-30yr old guy, 6ft tall + and fit. i.e. physically larger and stronger than the average male who is used to having their way.
