An armed society is a polite society is on the same level as saying you need the threat of hell to be a good person.

No wonder it resonates so well with  "christians"?

The Epidemic of Gun violence is a Public Health problem, not a Political one.  The President and the CDC have broad legal authority to stop this Epidemic through the creation of Rules.

They could create a vaccine. Preferrably given in the form of a shot.

There is no support for this conjecture.

Everything we've seen shows that weapons + inequity = violence.

It's not the craziest gun-lover's conjecture though.

The craziest one is the belief that when The Stuff Hits The Fan, people in the country will lord it over those in the city, when all history shows that the villages starve before the cities.

Chipotle isn't even that great. Once you've had better Mexican food, Chipotle is like slumming it one step above Taco Bell. But how good of this woman to take matters into her own hands, and to prove to everybody that she doesn't deserve good Mexican food. She deserves to be there with the dregs, ordering bland, mediocre fast Mexican. Hell, maybe she could be their new spokeswoman. I've even got the slogan for her ad campaign: "Hi, I'm (whatever this biatch's name is), and when I don't get my Chipotle, I get real blasty!"

So, what you are saying is... solve the inequity?

--------------------------------------​----------
The armed society thing basically means if *EVERYONE* is carrying - people behave, cause they don't want to roll those dice.  If only 10% are armed, they feel empowered over the unarmed.  Which leads to abuse - like the article cited...

FARK IT!  Everyone goes through basic military training at 18 - you get your long rifle to keep at home in an issued weapon safe, and a 9mm to carry at all times.  Required when on duty, encouraged when off duty, Unless you plan on imbibing any mind altering substances.

There, now everyone has use and safety training, everyone is encouraged to carry, and the cowards that once open carried to 7-11 for their Big Gulp and Budweiser to feel powerful are reduced to being the same as Literally every other adult citizen around them.

----------------------------

That all being said: eat the rich, reduce omnipresent police, legalize/decrim all drugs & prostitution, socialize medicine and education to include college, and mandatory military service and weapons training/safety.  Break the cartels by providing the same stuff legally and safely, and you get tax revenue to power the new costs.

Fix the damned roads, bridges, water, power, and internet before everything falls to ruin like pre-collapse USSR.  (Or, Rome, I Guess)

Not really sure where that puts me on most Farker's political spectrum...

No, violence worsens inequity, albeit sometimes with a new group on top.  The reason for this is that most people aren't violent.  So all making guns easily available does is enable the minority that are.

For example, easy access to American firearms haven't resulted in a more equal Mexican society.  Average people just end up getting oppressed by two groups... the official government and the heavily drug cartels.

Guns only become an equalizer if everyone has become equally violent.  At that point, you are living in a failed state, not a utopia.

I would argue that inequity both creates and is created by terrible people.  So these statements are functionally equivalent.  But inequity is much easier to measure.

Also, there are very few national guard armories in rural areas.

As opposed to getting blasty after eating Chipolte.

Wait wait wait! You mean you would arm those (blah) people, as well? We can't have that!

I heard about this on the radio this morning and the host added, "I don't know how this could have happened when Philadelphia has strict gun laws." He didn't actually say "wink wink," but I could hear him winking.

What does he think would have happened if there had been no gun laws? The crazy customer would have still had a gun, but does he think Chipotle workers would have been packing or in a position to draw down on her or whatever? Or maybe a customer would have shot the other customer in the back? Or just that the possibility of not having the only gun would have been a deterrent to someone batshiat insane enough to pull a gun on someone over a burrito in the first place?

She could have just went to any of the other diarrhea inducing restaurants at the food court.

"Hey, a Sparro and it's right next to the bathroom!"

The woman then placed the gun back in her purse, investigators said. Another Chipotle worker then made the woman her food in order to get her to leave.

Chipotle gives in to terrorism.

Yeah, there should define be a rule against pulling a gun in public and threatening people with it. I can't believe people are allowed to do that.

It has never been a deterrent.  If we're both armed and I'm working at Chipotle and you draw on me first, there's no way in hell I'm going to do anything different than what the people in TFA did.  The crazy lady gets her food and security is called.  I'm not risking my life for $0.85 of ingredients source from the lowest bidder;.  Even if I owned the place I wouldn't do it.

I mean, I'm not racists - buuuuuuuut..... Yeah.  I want everyone trained and armed.  Every color, race, ethnicity, religion, gender, creed, and orientation.

And to expound on that further: hate speech/crimes = No Weapon access.  You start waving any traitor/treason/loser flags - your 2nd amendment has been paused because of your 1st.  Intimidation tactics outside of voting locations?  Women's health clinics?  You're disarmed pending full evaluation, and may remain that way depending on the investigation.

Kick rocks you hate filled cretins.
