To start I would like to say.. This is not a post about my views on gun control. I don't care about others opinion on the topic of gun control at this time. This is just me asking a simple question on a law that I heard about.
I heard that in some states you can carry a gun on you with a permit. BUT! the law supposedly stated that the gun must not be loaded, it must stay holstered, and that you can not carry ammunition on you with your gun. So I have to ask, what is the point in having said gun? What are you going to use it for? If its just so you could point it at a would be attacker and scare him away, that's just stupid. That's the worst thing anyone could ever do, is to aim a gun at anyone and think that scaring someone is always going to work. I was taught by my uncle ( who is a US vet, and marksmen) that you never pull a gun unless you are prepared to use it. Maybe I'm not understanding this law. I understand its to help keep people safe. I understand that sometimes people accidentally shoot people and that's probably why they make laws like this. But if you are needing to defend yourself against someone, its not like you can tell them " time out a sec, I need to grab my ammo and load my gun " ????! Anyways its crazy to me.. you are better off with a taser or something. At least you can use that.
