Tool or Toy? Why Carrying A Concealed Handgun Makes You A Giant Pussy
With an act of gun violence gripping the nation’s attention every few months, the American public has been forced to at least consider the issue of gun control. I use the word “consider” because it implies a significant lack of action.
As young children are gunned down in cold blood by weapons designed for the battlefield
Actually, there’s more children being gunned down by handguns similar to those in use by police officers, meant for the lawful defense of self and others. Mainly on major cities, more related to poverty than actual legislation. As cities like Chicago show.
, our national dialogue has consisted of: “Should we do something about this? Should we limit or regulate more strictly the sale of firearms? Or should MORE guns be made available to the public? Oh look! Football’s on.”
We completely ignore the facts about gun violence
Which is that it’s been on the decline for two decades. Fact.
The fact is you’re more than ten times more likely to die from gun violence in the US than in the UK.
And in the UK you are more likely to get shot NOW than before gun control.
And a majority of gun deaths in the US aren’t from mass shootings or crime at all, they’re from suicide. Two-thirds of gun deaths come from suicide in fact.
And as someone who has seen a loved one die slowly for 8 years and who has a small chance of having the same thing in the future with no cure in sight, any legislation you might want to pass to curb suicide by gun will only lead people into other methods.
Japan and South Korea. They do their suicide thing just fine without guns.
"But how does any of this make me a giant pussy if I’m carrying a concealed handgun?"
Yet the modern handgun (and assault rifles) are weapons engineered to kill people. That’s their sole purpose.
If I want to carry a gun, I am obviously not expecting it to talk my attackers down and give them an inspirational speech.
That’s it. It took years and technological advancement of every kind to construct weapons that could be easily concealed (in the case of pistols), have high ammo capacity, rate of fire and accuracy (in the case of assault rifles)
You know that the so-called “assault rifles” aren’t that well-renowned by their accuracy, right?
Sure, you can get a really accurate AR15. But your standard ball ammo won’t make justice to it, you’ll need consistent high quality ammo.
The glorification of these weapons has led to them becoming desirable symbols of power , and there’s nothing the weak desire more than to feel powerful. 
At least show your diploma in Psychology before making statements like that.
So that is why if you carry a concealed handgun or fetishize assault weapons you are a giant pussy and I’d frankly be surprised if you can keep from voiding your cowardly bowels at the sight of a tiny, baby mouse.
Handguns serve no purpose other than to end life, and if you’re a fully grown man who needs a pistol to defend himself then you are no man at all.
WOW SUCH MAN

This… is beautiful.
Navy Yard shooter entered with a shotgun, stole an AR-15 off of one of his victims
It didn’t take long for liberals to use today’s dead victims as a platform for taking away citizens’ 2nd Amendment rights. Senator Feinstein, immediately and predictably, called for a ban on “assault weapons.”
But today’s shooting wouldn’t have been avoided with a ban on AR-15s because the shooter didn’t enter the Navy Yard with that weapon. He entered with Vice President Joe Biden’s weapon of choice: a shotgun.
from NBC Washington:
When it was over, the suspected gunman lay dead amid an armload of weapons. Sources told News4 that surveillance footage showed that he began his attack with a shotgun, but was found with a 9mm pistol and an AR-15 assault rifle.
NBC News correspondent Pete Williams is reporting Alexis purchased a shotgun in Lorton, Va. during the past week or so.
The suspected gunman appeared to have seized firearms from two of his victims as he moved through the building along the Anacostia River in southeast Washington, where 3,000 Navy employees go to work each day, many of them carrying authorized firearms.
Guns are inanimate objects. We don’t blame the alcohol or the car when a drunk driver kills innocent people. We blame the drunk driver. The same should apply here. Blame the psychopath, not his weapon.
