Oh, they know what a gun is big time, Memphis is the crime capitol of TN and most of it is guns and black on black crime.
Yet all the city wants to hire are black LEO, other races are not wanted, nor are residents out side of the city, not even in the same county. Gives them a very small pool to choose from.
“Bad guys are bad no matter what. If someone’s bent on murder, he’s going to do so and they pick the places where they can wreak the most havoc.”
What a true statement. Fence Post KILL TO, just ask my 16 year old son who is in a cold grave because some socio path wanted to see what it felt like to kill, and chose my child as his victim. I don’t see a call to ban hands, feet, screwdrivers, knives, cars, poisons, or any number of ways to kill.
I CCW to protect myself from the RELEASED killer of my son who made threats to kill any one who testified against him...well I spent 14.5 years keeping his butt in prison, I made him serve all but 6 months of his 20 year horrible plea bargain. They counted the 2 years it took to get him tried as part of his sentence, and tried to parole him 10 MONTHS later.
That is the population that needs to be reached, and educated, regards the ability to self defend, and other benefits of responsible gun ownership, vs the daily spew from the media regards the eeeevvviill man killers.
Fact is, every study shows correlation between the presence of guns, and enhanced safety of the local population. Need to keep plugging, sharing the info, deluge if you will, like the dbm, but showing the other side, the correct, side, the logical side, the factual side.
