I believe you’re right. Every time there’s an assault gun bill or something even remotely related to firearm restriction, sales go up.

It’s all about power, security and ease. The popular response for anyone who carries a firearm when asked about self defense is that they have the “equalizer”.

I am a firearm advocate. I think responsible citizens need to help protect each other. The problem is the GRAY area. Most times in REACTIVE self defense situations, which is the majority of the time for citizens you must react AFTER someone has engaged you. Which means you’re going to have to use empty hand techniques or whatever improvised weapon you can get your mitts on to do the job.

OK, 1%, back to your original point. I go off on a tangent because as a defensive tactics and hand to hand instructor I hear the “I’ll just use my gun” excuse form every lazy SOB who doesn’t want to train. Then what happens with the guys and gals I do train?

When ever they go on a tough call, hey make sure the person with the training is in FRONT!!!! That really pisses me off. Sacrificing another person because of laziness. Sometimes THAT’S what you get for trying to do your job to the best of your ability.

Anyway, back to your point. PERCEPTION IS REALITY. I’m sure the gun community loves the attention. ANY PUBLICITY IS GOOD PUBLICITY.

They can complain, but who was thinking about them before the threat of losing your right to carry came up?
