I'm bored so here is my stab at it.
1.) not worth addressing.
2.) I'd rather die than shoot an innocent person.
3.) Cops exist to protect the innocent. Any officer of the law who fails in this duty is not a cop.
4.) This honestly is a good rule.
5.) Why shoot someone if you can scare them?
6.) feet per second isn't a measurement of time.
7.) The first rule of a gunfight is avoid a gunfight.
skip some
10.) something can cause the death of others, while nothing can as well
11.) People taking your guns away.
12.) universal for "violent"
13.) not unless you are CAPTAIIIIINNNNN PLANET!

1 - N/A
2 - If you are smart, and of good moral fiber then you won't shoot an innocent
3 - Police exist to uphold the law, protecting the public is a secondary concern
4 - Universal policy
5 - It's based off of the theory that if you are carrying and someone manages to make you draw, then they should be scared at the sight/sound of the gun being drawn
6 - To the layman it makes sense, Cops will take 23 minutes, a bullet will take less than a second
7 - The first rule of a gunfight is to win
The first rule of owning a weapon is to try your best to only need it for practice
8&9 - N/A
10 - It is easier to ask forgiveness than risk calamity
11 - Agreed
12 - No, it's universal for stop, universal for violent is hurting someone.
While the Golden Rule of drawing a weapon is to be prepared to use it, drawing does not immediately make it violent, because if you have drawn a gun, the situation was headed there inevitably.
13 - Or Superman

If someone has the intention to harm me I don't find them very innocent.
User avatar #197 to #196 - Crusader (08/06/2013) [-]
Yes, but it's easy to misinterpret someone's actions.
Take Trayvon-Zimmerman.
I am willing to bet all my savings that, Zimmerman approached, thinking Trayvon was a threat, Trayvon hit him because he had a gun, and then it escalated.

Or something more likely, you are walking down an alley short cut, a bunch of drunk guys come up, start cursing at you, and give you a bit of a shove, but you can't tell it's going to stop, so you draw, they get more agitated, and you fire.

you dont approach a threat, you contain the situation at a distance only closing with the it at such time that it is no threat anymore (i.e. back up is there, threat has surrendered etc)
User avatar #198 to #197 - ScottishMinor (08/06/2013) [-]
I'm talking about armed robbery.

2. this obviously wasn't made by someone with those characteristics
3. the purpose of the law is to protect the public.
4. we agree here
5. Ahh, confused myself. I read it as the last thing they should hear blah blah blah
6. not if they are over 1400 feet away
7. I'd rather avoid the gunfight
8. & 9. yeah not applicable is a good way to describe these two
10. This is subjective. Morals aren't set in stone.
11. should I just write agreed again
12. Unless you are not of good moral fiber
13. get that weak **** out of hear captain planter runs your life.

I like list format. It makes debating easier.

The biggest problem I have with your logic is that you seem to think a cop is going to come to your aid. Supreme court has already ruled it is not an officers duty to protect a citizen, to put his life at risk to save someone. If you're being shot at, hiding behind a dumpster in an alley with the bad guy on one end and the cop at another, the cop can simply run away and claim fear for his life and won't be responsible for leaving you there to die, it's just how it is in America.

User avatar #190 to #183 - srskate (08/02/2013) [-]
Well then he has failed his duty. It is his duty to uphold the law. There is clearly aggravated assault occurring, and if he runs he might as well be an accessory.
User avatar #192 to #190 - thegamerslife (08/03/2013) [-]
No, by law in America he is not obligated to help that person if he believes his own safety would be put into jeopardy. It's ******* retarded, but that is one of my main reasons for carrying. I'm not going to rely on someone else to keep me safe when it isn't even their job to begin with.
User avatar #193 to #192 - srskate (08/03/2013) [-]
It'd be pointless for me to carry though. Never been in a situation where it would've help, nor has anyone I know.
User avatar #194 to #193 - thegamerslife (08/03/2013) [-]
different lives. hope you never need one.
#195 to #194 - srskate (08/03/2013) [-]
and I hope you never need to use yours
and I hope you never need to use yours

feet per second is a velocity not a time. I think you should have to pass an intelligence test to own a gun.
User avatar #153 to #143 - Crusader (08/02/2013) [-]
To the layman it makes sense
because it tells you that the police will take 23 minutes
A bullet will take less than a second
User avatar #148 to #143 - lifeofliam (08/02/2013) [-]
it gives a relative comparison between a person getting to your threat and a bullet getting to your threat. i could say that the cop is traveling at 70 mph (if he feels like it) and his is at a location that will take him 23 minutes to arrive OR i could say that the bullet will take less than a fraction of a second to reach your treat BUT putting it this way lets you envision the events better.
User avatar #124 - OMGChrisHansen (08/02/2013) [-]
Posts like these make me afraid that someday I will inadvertently provoke someone into shooting me just because of the whole "better safe than sorry" motto and I am just not so down with that.

well in any case guns should only be used if you know that someone means to take your life or the life of someone you love, not to play hero in a situation of no life-threatening danger.

Ok where I come from the police carry guns to protect the people not them selves, though they usually only need them for when some ******** is trying to run them down.
