Who should we shoot first.

Also why wouldn't Bas have a say? I think he's got a pretty decent set of relevant experiences. Like what happened to you bas when your government came to get you and you couldnt defend yourself with guns?

Anyway I still see the to sides arguing the same points. One one hand it's a pessimistic and strongly emotional "what if" based mostly on fear, but a justifiable fear at least in the sense that it's intent is self preservation, that's just a different way of looking at life. Versus a pretty optimistic, possibly naively optimistic belief that it won't happen to me.

But if we took the middle, and I think that's where rebel and the OP and others have gone, and look at evaluation of the most likely cases or scenarios, sometimes based on personal experiences recounted here, others based on statistics and data (rather than sensational news), that would suggest that you're safer without a gun. That most situations where a firearm could prove useful (at least human vs human) that there's far more likely than not, a resolution where you're not shooting each other. But at the same time it can be acknowledged that guns can be fun toys, or useful tools for hunting or pest control.

In short I think the argument that guns are necessary is flawed and based more on emotional response than reason.
