Definitely! Gun nuts are the exception, not the rule.
Now consider this. You cannot count on the police to protect you in most scenarios. Do you have any idea what could happen to you or your family if you ‘witness’ a violent crime and you report it to the police, then the perpetrator gets taken to jail and ‘makes bail’? Guns or no guns, you’d be in for a world of hurt, even if you and the people you care about somehow managed to not be murdered.
True story: In 2017, a South Florida hip hop artist named Jahseh Onfroy; aka, ‘XXXTentacion’ made bail only a few days after being charged with “armed home invasion, robbery, and aggravated battery with a firearm.”
You see, not everyone that gets charged with a crime actually stays in jail before trial. Many of them ‘make bail’ and if they’re facing serious charges, they retaliate against the people who got them sent to jail. Snitches end up in ditches. And you think you’re safe ‘without’ a firearm when there are dangerous scumbags like Jahseh Onfroy who wreak havoc wherever they go? If you’re NOT packing heat, then you better never witness a crime, and you better never be in the same place at the same time as a violent criminal.
