“The Good Guy With A Gun” question?
We’ve all heard it a millions times over, the only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. One thing I’m curious about, has the good guy with a gun ever been someone with a long rifle stopping the bad guy? It seems to me almost every instance of a good guy with a gun is someone with a pistol and generally a bit of training who manages to stop someone, not someone walking around carrying a long rifle.
It seems to me that if the goal is to prevent mass shootings (and not ALL gun crime) then it should be two prong; making it easier to own a handgun and making it easier to get training while also working to restrict long gun and magazine capacity.
And while I understand “shall not be infringed”, we currently accept plenty of infringements like those that don’t allow felons, children or the mentally ill to legally possess guns, so where does the line get drawn on what is a reasonable infringement?
