Response to So, how mean are you?


How have you been? Haven't heard from you in a bit. Hope you are well.

it's a variety of factors I figure. the concept of regulation is a consideration, do we want to be able to regulate to all levels? is it necessary to carry a firearm?

I don't see myself needing a tank for example, just to exaggerate for emphasis, in my day to day life. I don't carry a firearm.. I also stay away from trouble.. I've found in my experience most conflicts can be avoided, and in my general area of operation, it is uncommon for someone to carry a firearm. With well developed Kenpo, and that "tiger spirit" I figure I can respond to what comes with appropriate options. If someone really wants to shoot me, I don't see how carrying a gun would help me.. Anybody can get sucker punched, somebody could just wait for me to come out of a building and shoot me in the head using a hunting rifle from across the street.

Of course someone could also start shooting others, and if I had a gun, I could maybe shoot them..

At this point, answering only for myself, I do not carry a firearm. I don't have enough experience, I am still developing my Kenpo, there are plenty of natural weapons i'm developing, and also developing the responsibility to have them. I figure I've got a lot to work on before I start carrying a point and click death dealer. It's like, ****, they don't teach harry potter the death spell during his first year!
