Personal responsibility stops that guy getting drunk with a gun.
You know what good guys with guns usually end up doing? Accidentally getting other good guys killed. There are more incidences of guns killing people in accidents than in home invasion/mass shootings. This is fact. <br />
Also, could you imagine what would have happened if that batman movie theater shooter guy walked into a theatre full of concealed carry good guys... Things would have been a lot worse, bullets flying all over the place.
I think a drunk guy with a gun is like a drunk guy with a car and falls into the category of bad guy.
Or intentionally firing into a car where a group of guys are playing loud music.
Most of the mass shooters weren't bad guys until they got their hands on a gun. They all could have been stopped with out firing a shot. Better mental health treatment and tougher gun laws are needed. One without the other is a half assed approach to solving the problem.
Nothing be like Australia get rid of guns
You have a point but responsible gun owner with a permit has more hours of training and accuracy than you surmise. The chances of being struck by a stray or misguided bullet fired from a police officers gun in the same dramatic circumstance are as great as that of an individual trying to prevent a crime. Frankly, I would rather have someone on hand able to interdict a felonious act being perpetrated on innocent rather than none at all and take my chances..
The police do it all the time and they're sober and trained..
Nothing really. If said person is that delusional, nothing will stop this person.
Nothing, which is why HOURS of training are supposedly needed before even thinking about carrying a gun in public.
Training, responsiblity and self discipline.
There is always an exception.
if you have a gun, unless you're going to always be responsible with it, there's always a chance of an accident or an intentional act of cowardness. Good people with guns can suddenly lose it and go wild. Bad people with guns may or may not use them to shoot at people.
