sampsihoyosAm I on your shit list?
SVmikeHave you been to Texas? In reality it has very little to do if good ol boys with guns are walking around. Its the element of supersize and terror. Confusion and disorganization are a terrorists best friend. If in your world you assume all the cowboys will pull out their guns and start blasting away. All you will have is a bunch of dead people and police not knowing what the hell is going on. Toss in a bomb or two and you have real chaos. Exactly what the terrorists want.
sampsihoyosEvery citizen in Texas is essentially a police officer proudly carrying an unconcealed weapon. So the police never would have to show up.
UPSIDEDOWNDICKhillbilly who carries a gun =/= trained police officer
sampsihoyosThis will probably turn into a shitstorm, but that's why we have NS. In general I'm for gun control laws way more than most Americans but in a scenario similar to Paris on Friday...it's hard to say. I speculate someone wearing black and shooting into a crowd anywhere in Texas would instantly breath their last breathe. Every citizen in Texas is essentially a police officer proudly carrying an unconcealed weapon. So the police never would have to show up. The situation would probably be over before police could arrive. There would probably be some friendly fire but ground terrorism doesn't work in Texas unless it includes explosives or scaled up destruction. It's kind of weird that the whole world is talking about something that only couldn't have happened in Texas or a similarly trigger happy state. Any solutions to terrorism are not black and white and Texas is a crazy place with high homocide rates but at least they don't have to worry about foreigners wielding. Just saying.
You may flex your America muscles now.
