    My wife and I had spent 2 days in Vancouver. In that 2 days, we saw 3 fist fights in the street. I have lived in Texas for over 40 years. I have never seen even one fist fight in the street of Texas.

    Why? When everybody has gun, people understand how serious a fight can be. You may beat me up today, as long as you don't kill me, you can't stop me from shooting your family members the day after.

    IMO, gun can bring peace.

    Much of what got me into guns was the martial arts. The martial arts magazines I would read would sometimes talk about guns and gun rights. I used to read Inside Karate which is now out of production but was a pro gun magazine whenever guns were discussed in any of its articles. Gun lovers and martial artists have some stuff in common, both want to be able to take care of themselves.

    Isn't that most likely due to the fact everyone drives and no one is on the street actually walking? besides a few fist fights has got to be better then over 50 dead and hundreds injured.

    I am a firm believer that my ability and right to protect myself and family should not handicapped due to someone abusing that right for wrongdoing.

    I never saw a fist fight in Texas, than again I don't spend much time in Texas I've only been there three times and one of those three times I was just briefly driving through.
    But I did see a fist fight once at the NJ shore on the boardwalk.
