You seem to have not followed the argument.
There is a massive difference in gun crime and gun homicides, the second is approx 13,000 gun homicides to 40 a year - (200 year once we scale it up for different populations) other homicide rates are about similar.
The counter argument to that and the fact we have unarmed police for the most part was that it would mean our criminals run rampant in other areas.
I bothered to research facts rather than respond in clichés and found the moderately better general crime rates for the UK which we have juts discussed.
So in summary a massive difference in gun crime in our favour a moderate difference in other crime.
I have no regard for the life of scum. What's telling here is your ignorance.
Who determines who is scum ?
By whose standards ?
Why is your life more valuable than that of scum ?
What gives your life value in the eyes of anyone.
Where does Jesus tell you to have no reward for the life of scum ?
Does Jesus give no value to the life of scum ?
Do you follow Jesus, or do you just see him as a convenient sacrifice so you can be a jerk and go to heaven ?
