    The world doesnt work like that! We cant have people walking around schools, colleges, offices, churches, restaurants, libraries and any other public building carrying firearms "just in case" someone gets shot. Do you not have any idea how catastrophic that would be? Worldwide, the majority of massacres have been committed using legally-held weapons. Over roughly 30,000 Americans are murdered every year as a result of legally-held weapons. There is not one positive attribute to them.
    There are countries where this works rather well. As long as they are subject to training, then there should be no fundamental difference between an armed citizenry and an armed police force. (Other than more freedom.)

    Do you really see that happening in the States though? I dont. Certainly no any time soon.

    No. Not with the Democrats or the Republicans in power.
