An Armed America is safer

Than say someplace like Chicago

I did agree with his statement:
I never lost sight of the responsibility of carrying a weapon. Despite what many people think, it’s not something to be taken lightly.

Chicago has all kinds of gun control, and has held the state of Illinois hostage, yet they have as many 100 people shot a weekend. They have more thugs carrying guns than Somalia war lords, gun control kills.

Thomas Paine describing Chicago:
"... arms ... discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property.... Horrid mischief would ensue were (the law-abiding) deprived the use of them."

Thomas Jefferson on "No Gun Zones"
"The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes.... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."
- Thomas Jefferson (quoting 18th century criminologist Cesare Beccaria)
