They gave you an example peet
The harry Beckwith incident.
How about the shop keepers on the roofs protecting thier stores in the LA riots with hi cap rifles? Not good enough?
Nope. Not only are they "not good enough", they're not even on topic.
We're talking about civilian, on-the-street, concealed carry.
I've already explained why. You can have a 50 gallon drum full of loaded 30 round mags in your watch store and suffer ZERO negatives.
Your house can be defended by 12 different guns with 112 spare mags and you make ZERO sacrifices.
You can defend your gun store with full-auto weaponry and you DON'T have to CARRY IT AROUND.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
He is no fool who gives what he can not keep to gain what he can not lose.
