Why carry a gun?
    #4252303 - 06/03/05 03:32 PM (11 years, 11 months ago)

Is it for safety?....
....or is it the sense of power you get knowing that your carrying a gun

I'm willing to bet it is the powerful feeling rather than any "safety" that the gun provides.


If you said...."I carry a gun for protection/safety."

I would have to say that there are better ways to protect your self.

I can think of NO situation where a gun would be better/safer than a can of mace/pepper spray or a good tazer.


Anyone who is carrying a gun around to be "safer" needs to rethink the reason they really have the gun.

Im sure I could think of some situation where a gun would be safer, but IMO the gun will put you and others at alot more risk than it will protect you.

What are you talking about!! I think the question at hand is why NOT carry a gun.
Just look at history, man. That shit is bloody, and the new age wars are even swifter with violence. If you are not armed, and your league of assailants are, will you fight a fire-storm with water-guns?
So many people get cut down by criminals because they are out-gunned, out-smarted- or out-balled.
Guns suck, I'll give you that. One of my 3 wishes if I had a genie(;0) would be that gunpowder was never invented... At least that way I could still be kicking ass with a sword and armor.

fighting with swords i always thought was better because the better man wins, instead of just getting hit with a bullet.

i used to own a gun. i got it because i had tons of drugs in my house and didn't want people to rob me so i showed it to everyone who knew i had lots of drugs in my house. i always kept it disassembled and never would have used it if someone broke in to steal my shit. it was also fun to shoot shit. but in general guns are lame. imo people should only be able to carry/own guns if they need it to eat or similar. not for protection :stoned:

That's the point I'm trying to make. Having a gun only makes any situation more dangerous......not safer.

As I stated above there are safer ways to protect yourself. A gun is not needed to be safe.

2.someone really is out to get them




How is having a gun going to keep someone from harming you? If someone is "out to get you" they aren't likely to come face to face.....your gonna get jumped from the back......gun is useless.


Quote:

3.they just like guns




Just because you like something doesn't mean you should carry it around with you.
I'm like welding....doesn't mean I'm going to drag a welder around everywhere I go......just in case some one needs something welded. :rolleyes:

Quote:

anyone else have an idea y people would carry guns?





That's pretty much the 3 main reasons to carry a gun........none of them really make any sense tho.


It all boils down to the powerful feeling you get with carrying a gun. Makes you feel like James Bond or John Wayne.


Nothing to do with feeling safe......all about feeling POWERFUL

I know man! There have been plenty of threads on this already, so I want go into it further. Just know I agree whole-heatedly. And I also see swords as a tool up there with the gun. If you don't own a gun, AT LEAST own a sword, and know how to use it. Believe it or not with smarts and silence a swords-man can cut down rifles like a true ninja would! War is hell.

For some it's fear, others it is a form of protection in case somebody else has a gun, and others it is part of their lifestyle and means of making a living (i.e. cops,gangsters, organized crime).

The first 2 sets of people I mentioned I honestly believe only 1 out of 10 of them would really use their weapon if the situation arose that they had to. People can sit here and talk about how they would be able to shoot somebody point blank but talk is cheap. They underestimate how it actually feels to be in the situation. If they do choose to pull their guns then they have one shot and if they don't kill the other person they are dead themselves.. I know I couldn't do it. Death is final there is no escaping it.. If you choose to take somebodies life you live with the demons you create.
