Making anti-gun laws will NOT deter the criminal who has his mind set on committing criminal acts - he will ALWAYS find a way to commit them. Now, take away the ability for people to defend themselves and you`ve got major problems.

Musuko42-"It was her alertness, not her gun, that saved the would-be victim in this scenario."

Sorry, but now you`ve gone straight from `ignorant` to `idiot`.

An `alert` woman trapped in a corner with gun has more options than an `alert` woman without.

Musuko42-"I find it hard to imagine a scenario where"

You have a hard time imagining any scenario that does not support your bias and ignronce.

There are scenarios where a gun will not be of any help.

There are scenariors where a gun will be.

A person comfortable with a gun has more options in the latter.

Just as I`m in hundreds of scenarios every day where I do not need a fire extinguisher. In fact, there is only once this year where I was happy to have one. But I have it available at all times. And the lady in the Civic with a fuel leak was very glad I did.

Musuko42-"I find it hard to imagine a scenario where the victim`s chances are better off with both participants armed with weapons "

So, because `YOU` can`t see an upside IN THAT PARTICULAR scenario that you go to great pains to limit the circumstances to, she would NEVER find a gun handy?

Again, you demonstrate your ignorance (which is now bordering on stupidity).

What about a scenario where the woman is outnumbered, yet is able to defend herself. You know, LIKE THE LINK I PROVIDED? That is a perfect example AGAINST your position, but you still seem to think her raped and dead is a better outcome than letting her protect herself.

I find it hard to imagine a scenario where the victim`s chances are better off with both participants armed with weapons capable of wounding and killing at range, than when neither are thus armed.

If you have a situation where it is easy for the victim to arm themselves thusly, the attacker is also able to easily arm themselves in the same way.

"But she MAY have it out and ready for the rapist she notices following her down the hall to her apartment door."

It was her alertness, not her gun, that saved the would-be victim in this scenario. If the gun were not available to her, she would have had other actions open to her, thanks to that alertness.

In the link you provided, it doesn`t mention the attackers having guns. Do you think she would still be the victor in that event if they had a gun to her head? What stopped the criminals being armed? Gun ownership restrictions maybe? Do we know?

Musuko42-"she`s not going to get one up on the rapist hiding in the bushes"

But she MAY have it out and ready for the rapist she notices following her down the hall to her apartment door. Or the rapist in the bushes may not have a gun.

Why do you want to take away her options based on the one scenario you can come up with where it might not work while there are many more scenarios where it will?

In your mind, a woman who has been strangled to death is morally superior to a woman standing over her dead attacker because of your fear that the bad guy `might` obtain another weapon.

That just demonstrates your bias and ignorance.

"You would much rather be stabbed repeatedly, and totally defenseless, but you go ahead and die the way you want to."

I would much rather face an attacker with a knife than an attacker with a gun.

Knife: can outrun, can outfight.
Gun: the moment it is pointed at me I have no options and cannot move, even if I have a gun myself.

Would you like to explain to me how a woman in a dark park with a gun carried in her purse, with the safety on, is going to be able to resist a rapist who jumps out with his gun ready, loaded, and aimed right at her? Exactly what benefit to her is the gun in this scenario?

All you end up with is one raped woman and one rapist now armed with TWO guns.

"Which way would you rather face a rapist?"

Unless the woman already has her gun out and ready, she`s not going to get one up on the rapist hiding in the bushes with his gun already out and trained on her the moment he jumps out.

Well, unless she has superhuman speed and is able to reach into her bag, pull out the gun and point it at the rapist before he pulls his trigger.

If criminals are able to get hold of a percentage of the guns available, reducing the number of guns available might help.

That`s why criminals in America commonly carry guns, and criminals in Britain commonly don`t. They carry knives. But you can run from a knife. You can`t run from a gun.

Because most carjackings do not take place while you`re doing 70 on the interstate.

So, exactly how long have you been out of touch with reality? So really thing that a 98lb woman vs. a 350lb violent rapist is the fair fight?

Which way would you rather face a rapist?

msieg007-"pretty surefire way to get yourself immediately arrested"

Why? It`s not illegal. You inform the officer that you have a gun in the vehicle (after showing your permit). At best the officer will say, "Thank you for informing me." Worst I ever had happen was the officer said, "Can you step out of the vehicle so I can secure the weapon for both of our`s safety?" I said yes, told him where it was and informed him "It has a full clip and one in the pipe". He retrieved it, removed the clip and cleared the one in the pipe and layed them all on the front seat.

After he checked to make sure everything was Kosher with my load, he re-inserted the clip, jacked the slide to put one in the pipe, removed the clip to add the round he had removed from the pipe earlier, re-inserted the clip, then handed me the gun to replace in my console.

He complimented me on my choice of a Ruger.

That is why when the officer walks up, you make no sudden moves, and you hand him your registration, license and concealed carry permit.

I`ve been pulled over several times. Having a gun in the truck has never been an issue.

Well I guess since they are so easy to obtain for criminals I would much rather have a weapon against a thug who does have a gun than not. Your argument means nothing, there are already too many guns in country. Criminals will always get them, so why make it more difficult for good guys to get them?

Guns are about context. Here in the UK guns are relatively rare and I would prefer them to be even more rare so I favour strict gun control. If I moved to the US or, say, South Africa, one of my first acts would be to find a reputable gun dealer and ask for advice and training.

I would prefer to live unarmed in an unarmed society, but in an armed society I would want to be armed and competent. And I`d make very sure my children were trained in gun safety.

Why do you even need a gun? The car itself is a very dangerous weapon. That`s why people get so damn upset. It`s like this: "You cut me off and almost killed me by making me run off the road! I`LL KILL YOU!" We`re so stupidly defensive we assume everyone who sucks at driving is trying to kill us.

"Would the same logic apply to someone who owns a sword or Bow and arrows considering those too were created for the same purpose."

If they owned them for the purpose of self-defence, yes.

Can you describe to me another reason, other than self-defence, why this gun would be fitted to this car in this way?

@HalfSandwich

I don`t contest everything you describe, and agree that there is a distinct need for self-defence in many areas of your country. I`m sure the same applies to areas in my country.

My point is that the existence of this need is a bad thing that would be better off remedied.

You`re correct that I have no first-hand experience with guns. But I also have no first-hand experience with pneumatic drills. I neither need nor fear guns in exactly the same way I neither need nor fear the drills.

And I would really rather not need a gun at all, then to need and have one.

@Musuko42:

Here in the US we have a 3000km lightly protected border to our south and about 8000km of coastline on the lower 48. It is absolutely impossible from stopping guns and all other sorts of illegal things from entering the country. While most Americans are decent people, and the majority of the country is very nice, I don`t think there is one neighborhood that can realistically say drugs and violence have not affected it. That includes all classes and ethnicities.

While I own guns but don`t carry, I will always defend anyone who does so legally. Again, unless you were military, I would assume you have had little or no weapon experience. Me, I`ve been around guns since I was 6. I have no fear of them because I respect them and understand them. I know how to handle them and I know when a person with a gun is responsible or someone to avoid. It`s just another tool.

The device pictured is not for your everyday gun owner/hunter/enthusiast/gun nut. I remember seeing things like this in contractor vehicles in Iraq. There are certain places where this could be useful, but your average gun owning American isn`t strapping themselves up like this every time they go out.

Because of my line of work, I have a legitimate excuse to leave my house armed to the teeth whenever I choose.

But I don`t.

I find using the phrase "psycho gun nuts" in context with this pic is dishonest. Is the photo from some guy`s car in East Texas, or is it in a security contractor`s vehicle somewhere where there`s actually killing happening on a regular basis?

"It`s a tool like any other tool"

Correct, it`s a tool. Nobody is debating that.

In this context, the tool is a self-defence tool. Again, nobody is debating that.

What is being debated is whether such a tool is necessary and, if it is necessary, WHY that necessity exists.

To put it bluntly: what is wrong with your society if arming yourself with a lethal weapon is a sensible precaution when going for a drive to buy groceries?

To me, a plain old UK resident, that seems more like an action necessary in war-torn Somalia than it does in the leading developed nation.

If this kind of thing truly is necessary, then it`s a sad and shameful reflection on your society.

In before anyone comments on violent crime in the UK: yes, knife crime here is also a sad and shameful reflection on our society.

That is so cool, but man would you get it if a cop pulled you over. One time, while driving with my uncle we got pulled over, when the cop asked if there were any weapons in the car my uncle answered honestly that there was a handgun under the seat and all hell broke loose. He had his hand on his gun the entire time screaming questions at us while ordering us to slowly get out of the car with our hands up. Luckily we both had a license to carry a concealed firearm (I didn`t have mine on me at the time) but holy crap, if that officer had the authorization to strip search us, he would have. No ticket was issued, it turned out to be a random traffic stop. I hate people.

There are so many people here who claim to know the laws and they why/when/how people would be arrested for certain acts. I think it would be interesting to know how many people who express that opinion have any experience as a law enforcement officer.

I can tell you that in the State of Tennessee, If you possess a concealed carry permit you will not go to jail for this. Its funny how many people are flipping out about this.

I think the people who want strict gun controls are just ignorant in the ways of handling a gun and gun safety. It`s a tool like any other tool, but often people are afraid of what they don`t know.

Sure thing goes boom, make loud noise, but unless you yourself have some intent on breaking the law and putting people in danger, the only thing you have to worry about from people who carry legally is to remember to thank them if they save your life one day.

I would recommend taking a gun safety class and learning about what you are so afraid of. You may learn something about the law and about yourself.

Also, every law abiding gun carrier knows that if an officer pulls you over the very first thing you say to him, even if you have to cut him off, is that you have a firearm in the vehicle. They probably will ask to see your hands and have you step out of the vehicle to see your weapons permit or whatever your state requires but that is all for his/her safety.

Actually, I must disagree with you about that. If the gun is in clear sight of the officer, and the person being pulled over announces that they have a gun, the officer would not arrest said individual. If the gun is in clear sight, the individual announced it, and the individual cooperates with the law nothing will happen (or should happen) to that individual.

while i agree that this is potential trouble with police....real honest law-abiding citizens have an easy way to prevent police from becoming confrontational and emotional and violent.

upon being pulled over, roll down window, hold BOTH hands visibly outside the vehicle, and loudly declare "Officer, please don`t be alarmed, but i need to make you aware that i have a legal, registered firearm in the vehicle with me".

no beating, tasing, shooting, etc necessary.

"Gun control means taking guns away from law abiding citizens. A criminal doesn`t care about laws. Plus, the majority of CCW holder know better then to pull it out when not necessary. Why don`t you take a real handgun defense class. The several I have taken drill it into you that once you carry a gun you never pull it unless its a last resort. Their is nothing funny about killing anyone."

Restricting weapons results in only a handful of idiots having guns, not restricting weapons causes half a nation of idiots to have guns.
This is without considering the consequences of both parties in a conflict having lethal weapons.

You do not have the moral capacity to judge another individual to live or die when you live in such a chaotic society and do not have any moral perspective outside it.
