It has been my observation that the more insecure & afraid a person is, the more guns they need to surround themselves with.

Since that observation was made with your head up your 4th point of contact, it doesn't count for much.

Thanks for the good chuckle! The more insecure the lemmings are in this country, the more they flock to the likes of the Democrats and Obama! Gimmee, gimmee! Wipe away my tears mister President, cause I can't handle it on my own!

When I carry a gun, I don’t do so because I am looking for a fight, but because I’m looking to be left alone. The gun at my side means that I cannot be forced, only persuaded. I don’t carry it because I’m afraid, but because it enables me to be unafraid. It doesn’t limit the actions of those who would interact with me through reason, only the actions of those who would do so by force. It removes force from the equation... and that’s why carrying a gun is a civilized act.

It's been my observation that the opposite, far too often, ends up dead.

He's saying that you speak from ignorance.
You know NOTHING about why people carry or own guns.
You just have assumptions,not based on any fact or reason.

4. I am retired military. I have been shot at by people who meant it. I am far from insecure or afraid, as I am 5-9 and 215 pounds with a 50 inch chest and a 19 inch neck. If you would like to see what I can do WITHOUT a firearm, I am willing to demonstrate this for you, one-on-one. So unless you're willing to meet, then maybe you should tread carefully.

In his weekly address to the nation, President Obama said that, “we have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this. Regardless of the politics.” He said that, “we have endured far too many of these tragedies in the last few years,” and pointed to the massacre in Connecticut yesterday as the latest in a number of recent incidents. So what does he mean by ‘meaningful action’? More gun control, of course.   

Yesterday, a Democratic lawmaker was even more forthright:

Rep. Jerrold Nadler, who represents portions of New York City,...
