I very much disagree. Most mass shooters don’t care about being shot, in fact they tend to plan on ending their life. All this would cause is an uptick in nervous trigger happy people shooting more innocent people because they felt like they were in danger.

What does the “big stick” part of “Speak softly but carry a big stick” mean to you?

Honestly, he's not wrong IMO.

However, there are mass shooters who were looking for "suicide by cop," and were not in the right frame of mind at the time of their rampage.

Yet what are victims supposed to do? Wait around until the police show up or crisis support?

It’s horrible to think about.

But there are people killed by others every day.

For them, it’s real..:

It's not a way I choose to live my life or an environment I choose to raise my children. If others wish to, go for it. But if a visiting niece or nephew finds you gun and shoots someone, I blame you. If your son or daughter has a mental break and uses your gun in a rampage, I blame you. If you mistake your husband for a burgler, it's on you. And if my son mistakes your backdoor for his and you shoot him, I will follow you to the gates of hell.

I don’t think any of the murder victims chose it… it’s just what happened.

This quote would be a way to combat the perpetrators who would create victims.


Probably not helpful to say if the guy that’s about to rape you shows up, be more scared of me and what I might think of you… it just sounds scarier. But then the victim is scared of two people and doesn’t save their own life when they could of because they fear social reproach.
