And if those people had been armed, and the attackers had reason to know or suspect this (”armed society”), they would’ve just been attacked from the rear. Do you shoot anyone who walks behind you? The bad guys can adapt to circumstances quicker than you can draw a gun. The problem is not a lack of guns, but scum who will attack you without notice or provocation.
Merry (and safe) Christmas!
Yes, but in an unarmed society the scum view everyone they see as a victim, in a polite society (armed) the thugs are a lot more cautious because anyone could be a formidable opponent. I don’t think it is a coincidence that England has a higher violent crime rate then the US and South Africa combined (according to UN stats)
