We have a lot of people in this country who just lack common sense......
But anyhow... these folks out there "protecting" us are going to have some rules and guidelines to follow.....and even if properly trained..... you are still going to have these no common sense dumbasses get thru.
Its not as simple as point and click when you are fixing to shoot someone in a crowded location....or someone who has grabbed a kid or adult and has them in front of them..... Lots of variables involved......
Look at those cops in new york who came out blasting against someone.....didnt they wound 8 or 9 innocent people.....
Could you imagine the carnage some ccw person could cause in a crowded area when buck fever strikes...... Of course... history has shown us that the these ccw people usually...if not always do the smart thing and high tail it safety...... probably run to the nearest closet and hunker down in the corner.....pointing that pistol at the door...and the floor and the ceiling and the walls..... cause they are shaking so bad....lolLet go of my cracker jacks, If you dont Im going to have to beat you....... now then hand my captain crunch back over to me this instant.....or else !!!

Less than 1% of all gun homicides involve innocent bystanders.
Stray bullets and ‘mushrooms’, Sherman, Steele, Laufersweiler, Hoffer and Julian, Journal of Quantitative Criminology,
Fact: About 11% of police shootings kill an innocent person - about 2% of shootings by citizens kill an innocent person. The odds of a defensive gun user killing an innocent person are less than 1 in 26,000 despite American citizens using guns to prevent crimes almost 2,500,000 times every year.
Shall Issue: The New Wave of Concealed Handgun Permit Laws, C. Cramer, and D. Kopel, Independence Institute Issue Paper.
“All the horror stories I thought would come to pass didn’t happen ...I think it’s worked out well, and that says good things about the citizens who have permits. I’m a convert.
Glenn White, president, Dallas Police Association, Dallas Morning News,
“I ... [felt] that such legislation present[ed] a clear and present danger to law-abiding citizens by placing more handguns on our streets. Boy was I wrong. Our experience in Harris County, and indeed statewide, has proven my fears absolutely groundless”.
John B. Holmes, Harris County Texas district attorney, Dallas Morning News,
“Virginia has not turned into Dodge City. We have not seen a problem"
Jerry Kilgore, Virginia Public Safety Secretary, Fredricksburg Freelance Star,
your argument is null and void. There have not been "wild west shootouts" in the streets and CCW Holders are FAR LESS LIKELY to injure an innocent bystander

Anyway, this is not business as ususal. And this is not a President as usual.
In my experiece going through all the Presidents since Truman all have at least attempted to keep the basic foundation our our country going even if we didn't like their methods. But they were trying. And all we had to do was wait 4 years and we could vote to put in our better candidated.
Before our Constitution and Bill of Rights might have been interperted differetly by some but overall they pretty much were agreed up and debated amoung ourselfs ( which we are disigned to do) on the best way to maintain our freedoms and privilidges as a creative, self sufficient nation of individuals with individual rights.
So you had a plan to go from Baltimore to New Mexico. And I had a plan to go from Baltimore to New Mexico. I want to drive my route and you wanted to drive your route. So comprimise was reached and the point was that we all got to New Mexico. So were still complaining that the other way, their way would have been better.
Such is life. And such is freedoms in the US.
But this fool comes no where near the above story.
His story is: I'm going to attrack the non-worker, the non-performers, the nieve, the people who have learned to live off of some type of system that supplies them of their needs of this country, promise to give them things, allow them to believe they will have whatever they want when they want it, allow them to believe that dicipline hard working people are the enemies of them and this country -- after all these people have all this stuff that you would like to have and they won't give it to you --well, they are your enemies that we need to tear down, take away their unearned riches and give them to you..., and I'm going to allow you to believe that I have all the answers, that war is not necessary, that all we have to do is hug our enemies, that guns are bad, that if you let me have the entire freedom of running the US and the world later on, I can and will solve anything and everything that might make you feel bad.
And remember, we need to hate white people, corporations, guns, anyone that questions me, the US government itself and anyone that has more than you.
And if you do all this, which is basically never ask me any questions, then your world will always be happy, you kids will always be brilliant, you will have a new house all the time and all the problems will be solved.
But remember, the way to this Satori is by me....signed what's his face what sits in the White House in a hard working tax paying citizen chair paid for by that citizen"The American Republic will endure until the day Congress discovers it can bribe the public with the public's own money.

"I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them."
