It also depends on the situation. I've been to many small town court houses and there aren't even any guards in a lot of them unless there's a case going on.

I'd feel safer if I were able to legally carry on campus. I have to wait at a transit center in a shitty part of town for significant amounts of time every day, and every couple of days I'll see a group of people who make me feel very unsafe

I want that "have to be 21 to buy a pistol" bullshit to be gone, too. You are more likely to kill someone with a car than with a gun, so why can I get a driver's license at 16 but have to wait until I am 21 before I can purchase a revolver?

There aren't many guarantees in life but I'll guarantee you this:

In every shooting with some wacko at a school, restaurant, mall, business I'll guarantee there are people wishing and praying for someone, anyone with a gun to shoot this wacko and end it now.

By the time the police show up it's generally too late.

And the wackos will get guns laws or no laws, they will steal them if necessary.

I'd love to see just once a decent, hard working, tax paying citizen with a CCW permit just drill one of these slimeballs. ;)

A fact the anti-gun lobby is seemingly oblivious to.

I'd like to see more of them, maybe a CCW stops robbery count? CCW stops other crime count? Even homeowners shoot or protect their own other other lives count?

I'm sure sick of what I SEE ON THE 6 & 11pm crime stats almost every night!

Yeah that's a tough call, I feel for your situation some (how many?) 16, 17, 18 maybe 19 even 20 year olds might not be mature enough to carry a deadly weapon....not including 18+ year olds in our armed forces!!

Maybe some special exemption for "some" 18+ year olds, without mountains of paperwork. Question, do you at least have pepper spray mace? Not just mace, I prefer the 10% pepper which is more effective, even on some dogs which do not have tear ducts or really drugged out people.

Nope. If I carry some kind of spray, I want something that'll blind whoever I spray FOREVER

I do have one of these, though

I'll tell you what, pepper spray is nasty stuff sprays up to 20' on full charge, I have the hand helds in my car, desk, outside. It can save your butt in a jam. You can even get a key chain spray -but- you have to be real close.

I insist my wife carrys hers.
