I don’t just mean everyone should have the right to own a gun as the justices and the NRA suggest. I mean everyone gets issued a gun. This IS what they really want right? That IS the purpose in their decision right? Everyone should have a gun? I doubt it. Let’s look at it anyway.
If everyone had a gun on the day of the Virginia Tech killings how many less people would have been killed? How many would he have shot if everyone had a gun one, maybe two before everyone would have opened fire back at him?
What about the redneck killing 5 people at the plastics factory in Kentucky? He might have shot the first victim (supervisor) before all the rest of the workers riddled him with bullets.
The point is for everyone to own guns for their protection right?
We can see how it would have changed the outcome in almost every shooting in America. Ahhhh if only everyone had a gun.
Let’s move on to the next category. I am driving down the road and there is some clown driving right on my rear bumper. What to do? If I slow down they will hit me forcing me off the road and possibly a fatal injury. So I open up the glove box, reach in for my 9mm, turn and shoot. If lucky I will kill him first. That way no one else will have to be afraid for their life because this person is an aggressive driver. Self protection, what do you think?
Then there is the workplace, the subway, little league games, Supreme Court Justices chambers. Now there’s a good one! They affect millions of lives. So, in self protection, if I was a “Left OF Center” thinking Supreme Court judge and there was a major decision to be made, say on automobile safety, and it affected the safety and lives of millions of Americans, then I would be protected under the 2nd Amendment if I shot and killed at least one of the conservative judges correct? Hell, it would be my duty as an American to shoot him!
So, I say to Justice Antonin Scalia, you better be quicker than the next guy.
