A few days ago we asked if you would feel safe going into a business that had a sign that read “Guns are welcome on premises, please keep all weapons holstered unless need arises. In such a case judicious marksmanship is appreciated.”
1,524 of you replied and the comments below are representative of what most of you had to say about this issue:
- BEST COMMENT – Here’s the thing with the people who believe it would be unsafe. In most states to carry a holstered gun in public, they must pass an extensive class of shooting accuracy, defensive shooting, and proper safety. Yes I’m sure there are people that haven’t gone through this, but these are the people who have a reason for not being legal. Your belief on gun control is your belief but I will say that in the properly trained hand a situation that involves an intruder can be controlled quicker than the police are able to get there.
- BEST COMMENT – How about a sign at school’s “Faculty/staff/administrators are carrying firearms and are trained to use if the need arises”? I’m for it.
- BEST COMMENT – I’m a teacher (33 years) and I would LOVE to
have a gun in my room. I have a right to protect my students without
endangering myself. I have a family, too!
If I’m on one side of the room with a gun & my students are on the other side, the gunman would pay attention to me, not them.
