"I've been thinking about throwing together an atheist/freethinker/secular/humanist/etc... group in or around the Ottawa/Lawrence area. Nothing formal. Just kind of get together and discuss issues, books, and concerns. Any suggestions or ideas?"

"I know about the difference between melee and projectile~ I'm trained (at an intermediate level) to teach hand to hand combat in the military.   btw, melee weapons don't require skill to use; neither does a gun.  Its not…"

"LET ME MAKE IT SIMPLE, very few people will engage hand to hand ,  the hand gun allows anyone who get the drop on you to have their way. the had gun is unique because most other hand weapons require close interaction , some level of strength…"

"Sir, no one has at any point on this thread advocated more guns.  No one has advocated everyone armed.  You really should read the previous discussion here, because the more adamant you are, the less sense you make.…"

thomas smith replied to Tyler J. Jenkins's discussion Guns/Second Amendment
"folks, think about it, , the escalation that you have proposed, i.e.  everyone armed  will result in exactly this scenario. of course there will be anomlys, where the robber is overpowered , and probably some would be robbers will change…"

Park Bierbower replied to Tyler J. Jenkins's discussion Guns/Second Amendment
"That example reflects in no way the reality of armed robberies, and is in fact illogical if the purpose is to take someone's possessions without being caught or stopped.  try again please."

"Willful ignorance is not a strong position for debate.  Explain Park's situation then?  He's still alive, his would be muggers/robbers are still alive.  Why the anomaly?"

TK replied to Tyler J. Jenkins's discussion Guns/Second Amendment
"This type of defensive firearm use happens a LOT.  It doesn't get sensationalized, because a) no one got shot, and b) it's usually not reported to police."

TK replied to Tyler J. Jenkins's discussion Guns/Second Amendment
"I am thinking logically.  You know the logical first person to rob?  The person I know who doesn't have a gun.  It's an equalizer, not a guarantee.  If you enjoy being a target, then so be it.  Don't make me a…"

"the same.  There were three.  Because I was aware of my surroundings, I got my weapon out before they could get theirs out.  They saw I had it and backed off cuz they knew I'd be able to shoot before they would."
