Guns for All

The fracas at yesterday’s Trump rally in Reno shows why we need gun rights now.  A man was seen carrying an anti-Trump sign and someone else shouted out that he had a gun.  In the confusion, Trump was hustled offstage by his security detail, and meanwhile the crowd was in turmoil as people tried to figure out what was going on.

Obviously, the problem is that this crowd was unarmed, which is why they were afraid of a possible shooter.  If everyone had a gun they could go after whoever they thought was threatening them, and they would all be equally safe.

Well no, surely that is not the point - this was a republican rally. The point was nobody bothered to bring their guns with them.

And yes I do understand the subtlety of the post. They would not only all be equally safe, they would also be equally unsafe.
