Actually, I've known one or two. I may have even been in jail myself a long time ago.
Yes, it is a better tool to use DEPENDING on the job.
You've got to read and listen more.
Of course they would be. A knife is also a deadly weapon.
Actually, the people I was speaking of are those that purchase guns legally, use them to kill someone, and therefore BECOME criminals. What I mean by that is, we all have the capacity to choose right or wrong. Most rational people don't purchase guns to kill someone. They buy them for protection, security, peace of mind etc.
Yet our prisons are full of those same people, because in a moment of anger, or passion, or distorted thinking, they make the wrong choice. As many as carrer criminals? No, of course not. But as stated elsewhere, "criminals" can't legally purchase guns, and I was not speaking of them. Regarding them
, I said, "... it would be nice if only criminals killed criminals."
Lastly, so we're all clear: Do I own a weapon? Perhaps.
Of course I may not be "rational" to someone from the city or up north but I have one who's sole purpose is to kill someone if it becomes necessary.It is dedicated to that end and hopefully will never be used.
