    Yet you think that you having a gun would be helpful. You are delusional.

      no, I'd put it closer to 10. Or less. And hunting doesn't include varmints, all inclusive game preserves, or big game dip****tery. I'm talking shoot something, field dress it, drag it out, have it processed, and eat it.

        Suggests that about 1 in 8 gun owners hunted in 2016. Now, that's only one year and doesn't indicate whether they've ever hunted. But anecdotally, of the half dozen or so gun owners I know well, none of them have hunted ever and none of them plan to.

        Overwhelmingly, "protection" is the most cited reason for gun ownership.

          Your experience lines up with what I would expect. Among older and more rural gun owners the percentage is definitely higher than younger and more urban/suburban gun owners. My personal definition of a hunter is someone who has done some hunting. One in eight sounds right for active hunters.

              I could go find the report from about 10(?) years ago, but I don’t much care to…with that, when NYPD had some big shootouts, a groups started tracking all recorded shots by the NYPD during police-involved shooting. The trained offices had an accuracy rate of just over 6%. So it took an average of more than 16 shots fired to have a single positive hit on their target. What will the average “gun hero” do in a gun fight?

                Yes, yes. More rounds being wildly discharged with people nearby is certainly the better option. I think Breonna Taylor would agree.

                  So let's see if I have this right. If a shooter is getting shot at he'll stop if the people he's shooting at also have guns because they for some inexplicable reason won't also try to not get shot themselves but rather will return fire. I mean it's better to have a gun then not at all even if you're going to run.

                  What?

                    I’d ask you the same question, but we probably have the same answer.

                        The school had metal detectors, upwards of 7 armed guards and the doors were locked.
