A return to the Wild West would be a plus for personal safety.
I couldn't agree more.
Look at Henry McCarty, he purportedly killed 21 people in his 21 years, but that's mostly legend, still, he likely would ave killed a lot more if people didn't wear gun's openly back then! It's a better Deterrent than most think.
Most hard core Outlaw's of the 1800's killed less people than the idiots that shot up columbine...
