The NRA promotes the idea that if everyone is armed then everyone would be safe. So, if this little old lady in line at Walmart pushes her cart into your butt you just empty a couple of rounds in her face. There are far too many people in our society that are on the edge, and arming them is ultra dangerous. What we need is serious regulation. I don't believe that your average citizen should be permitted to carry a weapon, period. And our DC politicians need to read Federalist Papers #29 which is Alexander Hamilton explaining the thinking behind the Second Amendment. The intent was not to arm the citizenry but rather to arm a militia in time of need. The NRA has, in recent years, distorted the intent on the Founding Fathers.
