    Default Open Carry: why do gun nuts need to pack fire arms everywhere they go??

    I don't hear of a lot of people getting robbed at the mall or Walmart, food shopping, car shopping, or at non-redneck bars

    and you damn sure don't hear any stories of 'good guys with guns' stopping mass shooters - there have been 283 mass shootings in 2019 already [mass shootings are incidents in which at least four people were shot excluding the shooter]. Is this some kind of a "look at my giant penis" thing, something a wannabe alpha male would do to make his bones? Or, is it simply a lack of confidence in general, afraid they can't take care of themselves in public with a crutch hanging on their belts?

    never understood this phenomenon and why only in America people demand to be armed at all times...…...doesn't really matter who you are, lock and load

    The Second Amendment does not address “need.”

    It only addresses the “right.”

    The NRA has documented hundreds of thousands of cases where an armed civilian has stopped assaults and attempted murder.

    How bout Obamas own study

    In 2013, President Obama ordered the Department of Health and Human Services and CDC to “conduct or sponsor research into the causes of gun violence and the ways to prevent it.” In response, the CDC asked the Institute of Medicine and National Research Council to “convene a committee of experts to develop a potential research agenda focusing on the public health aspects of firearm-related violence….” This committee studied the issue of defensive gun use and reported:

    “Defensive use of guns by crime victims is a common occurrence, although the exact number remains disputed….”

    “Almost all national survey estimates indicate that defensive gun uses by victims are at least as common as offensive uses by criminals, with estimates of annual uses ranging from about 500,000 to more than 3 million….”

    [S]ome scholars point to a radically lower estimate of only 108,000 annual defensive uses based on the National Crime Victimization Survey,” but this “estimate of 108,000 is difficult to interpret because respondents were not asked specifically about defensive gun use.”

    “Studies that directly assessed the effect of actual defensive uses of guns (i.e., incidents in which a gun was ‘used’ by the crime victim in the sense of attacking or threatening an offender) have found consistently lower injury rates among gun-using crime victims compared with victims who used other self-protective strategies….”

    They're candy-asses, thinking they can be some sort of gun-slinging hero is/when something goes down.

    And it almost never works like that.

    Indeed, thanks.

    Crime does not happen only in the home.

    It happens in the public places. Hence open carry.

    The right of self-defense exits in the Constitution.

    I'd much prefer carrying concealed as to not scare you, oh delicate snowflake.
