Your thoughts on the validity of this?
[Image: image.png]

As a person who has NOT been indoctrinated into American gun culture, yes, I still find it fundamentally true, but also unnecessary.
It doesn't fix the root cause.

1. Except criminals don't fear their victims even if they are armed.

2.I'm curious what the author of that quote considers " Wise " and "Foolish"

Rambo was a military veteran who was defending himself.

Harry Callahan wanted criminals to fear cops, not victims.

Tony Montana WAS a criminal.

You made three bullshit comparisons.

No, I made the connection that reality isn't anything close to Hollywood.

No, that's not what you did. You misunderstood the OP and had one of your typically childish kneejerk reactions to it.

The quote is inaccurate. Felons fear many things, being caught most of all.

This guy just wants to have a bigger dick.

Criminals fear getting caught. Giving untrained people (as in people not trained to kill other people) won't result in criminals getting caught, it'll just result in more victims of crime getting killed.

Oh and another way to massively reduce crime, decriminalise and regulate drugs. By criminalising drugs, all authorities are doing is giving the criminals free reign to gouge addicts, leading addicts to crime to feed their habits.
Oh and the second bit, almost definitely written by a white racist.
As a species, we are fucked. To the next generation, I offer my inadequate apologies.

Felon is a broad term.  Such a sweeping generality limited to a function of fear will fall to counterexamples.

Predicting the behavior of mentally ill people is a fool's errand when that fool isn't a mental health professional.  The Lt. Col. should consult one.

It's not even a top 1000 quote, much less the best ever.

"The felon does not fear the police who have months of training, always carry weapons, and essentially have a license to kill. But they will SURELY fear you if you have a gun, and abso-fucking-lutely less training than a police officer!"
"Tradition" is just a word people use to make themselves feel better about being an asshole.
