You guys must have some amazing jobs.
I am not assuming that today is the day that I will need a gun to defend myself. I know the stats, too, and I agree that it's like the odds of getting hit by a meteor.
However, I can promise you that my wife and kids want me to live. More than that, they want me to ensure that THEY live. As someone who's survived a few gunfights, I will not willingly go unarmed at the rick of losing my job. It's a job, not my life.
For the poster who lost his job and wishes he died? Dude, really? You must have had the greatest job in the world, and your life outside of work must just suck.
