Probably about the same as if they were accidently injured or killed in a car that I owned.....

Talking about regret, I think I would feel a lot of regret if my family was injured and I didn't have the means to stop it. Like anything, steps can be taken to minimize chances of accidents. Its stupidity that usually causes those gun statistics. A lot of times it involves alcohol as well.

Hmmmm.....  Sounds like the same could be said of accidents involving cars too.  ;-)

Then it has to be the cars fault as well. Both are used by people. So if the operator isn't at fault, then it must be the item.

Nah, it's just fun not to recognize there was sarcasm in the first place :-P

If I was to break into his house I would leave my guns at home. If I broke into yours I would bring three guys, all armed. If I were a criminal that is. Probably not the best sign.

You are smarter than the average criminal though. More than likely, instead of dropping off guns or picking up armed men, the average criminal picks the easier target.

@Golfingdad , appreciate the info, as well as the overall discussion from everyone else today.

 

Holding off for the time being on a conceal carry permit. Renting at the gun range once in a while is still a blast. When that wears off, I'll reevaluate things :-D

Yeah, think about every angle of it.  It is not something anyone should take lightly, or do it because they think it is cool.  I am not saying BTW that you are that person.  Target shooting is a lot of fun.  Having a CC permit is not really very fun.  It is another entire level of responsibility that is a burden.   Why?  Because you are responsible to practice and maintain an impeccable level of safe handling and caution ALL THE TIME.  Should something ever happen you have a responsibility to those around you to act, and to know exactly what you are doing when you do act.  I will say it again, it is a burden, but for many like myself it is a necessary one.  I am responsible for the safety and the environment of around 30 people each day.  I would not be able forgive myself knowing that I could have been able to act and was not able to.

 

 

Thanks, cipher. Appreciate the response.

I have a job as an unarmed security guard at a company on the weekends. In the course of my job I am expected to evaluate strangers that come onto the property, find out why they are there, and if necessary ask them to leave.

I am never completely comfortable with that job because no matter how proficient I am in self defense I would of course have no chance against a gun.

I am much safer away from that job than I am on the job. I never like for my best and only two options to be to run or to hide.

watch the movies, the security guard is always killed first.  an unarmed guard is a car without gas.an invention of simpletons who think they are smart. more yearly stabbings than shootings but that's o k? right!

 

Would you feel bad is someone took your gun and killed someone else? What a stupid question.  Would you feel bad if someone stole your car and killed someone else in a car wreck? Would you feel bad if you found out that you bought someone a drink and later they caused the death of someone else?  Would you feel bad if you were texting someone and they wrecked their car killing 4 people?

 

if you don't like guns, knives, phones, alcohol, drugs, don't own any.
