It is clear from my comment ... and what you got out of it ... which are completely unrelated ... that your reading comprehension skills are filtered through your particular AGENDA driven thought processes, or that you have no reading comprehension skills.
I offered for consideration a rational POSSIBILITY in keeping with real current events ... NOT a desire that it would happen.
I personally feel reassured when good men and/or women walk around town with loaded guns ... you feel threatened.
I live in a ZERO CRIME neighborhood in my end of the subdivision I live in, because EVERYBODY shoots off their back deck, and the folks who own the farm next to my lot apparently have a LOT of money for ammunition, as on Sundays. it sounds like a target range.
What you hear is a cause for fear .... I hear as the SOUNDS OF FREEDOM!
I mow my lawn with gunfire on both sides of me without apprehension, because I know these folks are intelligent, safety conscious, responsible people.
You need to associate with a better class of people, or teach yourself to become one...
.... or live in irrational fear as you do now.
These things happen EVERYWHERE ... you just are unaware of it.
Knives are used more than 6 times as often as guns in murders ... and bare hands and feet about 2.5 times more than rifles.
... and anyone nuts enough to do so can ram a crowd with a 2,000 pound car at 60 mph and kill and maim dozens.
I guess the REAL answer to your agenda loaded question is what always answers the various questions that are elusive.
James, I will tell you why I said that re your personality, it was because of this comment:
"Perhaps one day some nutcase will shoot up your Kingdom Hall with you inside."
I thought; "How could a Brother, hope that another Brother would get shot up whilst attending a meeting at a Kingdom Hall"
I took exception to that remark, and thought it very unchristian, and that is why I initially ignored your reply.
I will also tell you why I thought that you had not been in the military.....it is your attitude to guns.........I also correctly picked two others, (non-Witnesses), that seemed to have this passion with guns and like to walk around cities and towns with loaded guns on their person. This was also over these insane massacres that keep on occurring in the States.
Maybe you can answer the question James......Why do these insane massacres by lone gunmen continue unabated in the USA, and yet nowhere else in the world?
