tutkovaj, you want to know what the chances are? For me, 100%, as I have been attacked. I have been shot at, nearly raped (the man tied me to a tree), I have been stalked, and a whole myriad of other problems that I would rather not discuss here. I have seen someone being chased and beaten by a pipe and the police did nothing. I am not naïve to the way the world works. I would also like to add that, although I support gun ownership, I don't own one. Sometimes, my hand will veer off to the side involuntarily. I have found other ways to protect myself, but I'm not trying to take away the right for someone else (who is trained to care for, respect, and use a firearm) to protect themselves in a way that feels comfortable for them.
Duffy, I agree that what we have now isn't working, but I think that the change we need to make is in people, otherwise the violence will continue. If they don't have guns, they will just find other weapons to use against each other. The root of the problem is people and how they cope with their problems.
