This is a real headline.
Imagine a world where no one believes they need a gun.

  • They are not afraid. 
  • They know they live in a world where people live by the rules or are punished by society's justice system: not by vigilantes taking the law into their own hands.
  • Where people have hobbies that are not detrimental to society.
  • Where this is the type of headline people see on a daily basis.

Would you like to live in a world without fear?

Or do you like displaying that you are afraid by having to carry a weapon for "protection" when there is nothing you need protecting from?

Or that your fear is so irrational that you keep an object which is more likely to cause you harm rather than really offer protection?

I like living in a world where elevators opening is the exciting news.

Try it--it's fun!


  1. We continue to be exasperated by the view, apparently gaining momentum in certain circles, that armed robbery is okay as long as nobody gets hurt! The proper solution to armed robbery is a dead robber, on the scene.

    --Jeff Cooper

    As soon as you work out a way to get various violent criminals to do all of these things, get back to me on your imaginary world.

    1. First of all, I can't imagine what circles Jeff Cooper is talking about. No one I know of thinks armed robbery is of.

      However, I do belong to one of the circles that believes summary execution for less-than-capital offenses is wrong.

  2. Armed robbery is not OK, neither is execution for armed robbery. You blood thirsty gun loons get it wrong both ways, but insist it's the only way. A trait of brick wall thinking.
