...no? All that suggests is that their products probably have a longer shelf life than Cadbury's... especially if they have larger quantities of sugar, since sugar doesn't spoil easily. What it implies is their product has a shorter shelf life than Cadbury products, hence why they have to add prese...

I mean, have you, though? Is it strictly necessary for you to be able to sum yourself up in a single word, especially when you'll need to explain that word by using a few dozen more words regardless?

Why do these dickheads want to take my tobacco away so badly? They don't. You can still buy cigarettes. It's just another way to prevent younger people from starting to smoke, which nobody should have a problem with, since smoking is universally acknowledged as a horrendous habit which destroys you...

Sweden's murder rate is a seventh of that of the US. Can you use your data on "fewer numbers" to show that likewise the rate of people living in poverty in Sweden is a seventh of that of the US? Can you explain other countries having a much lower murder rate than the US when the degree of...

I'm not sure that's even true in the long term. We're notoriously bad at banning shit. Really.

As all of those examples were self defense, I'd say those examples WERE particularly compelling. I'll grant that the first and third examples were indeed self-defence, but - and perhaps this is my fault for not including all of the caveats every time - I'm really just interested in situations where...

You asked for realistic scenarios, and I gave you one that has actually happened. It sounds like maybe you're confused by the meaning of "realistic". :? No, it was a perfectly reasonable scenario, it's just that a gun wouldn't help you in that scenario. Which was sort of my point. If you ...

However, leaving the gun at home, unless in a very fixed heavy safe, is pretty irresponsible. One of the largest ways criminals get guns is via home theft. Again, this is really an argument for not allowing civilians to have guns. If that was why they required you to carry, then that's ridiculous. ...

So what should this woman have done with her gun? Left it at home? Unless she had a particular reason to believe she needed one, she shouldn't have owned a gun. But since she did, yes, she should have left it at home. Here's 3 examples of a concealed carry permit holder using a concealed weapon in ...

Generally detectives drive cars. Cars which lock. Why don't they leave their gun in the car most of the time, then? Why was I required to carry at all times, even off duty? Bearing in mind that I'm not a detective, and know hardly anything about detectives, I'm not sure why you're asking. In most o...

No. Depending on the situation, either you can't draw the weapon, or you could use a non-lethal weapon instead. There's no scenario in which a concealed firearm is a good option for self-defence. So THATs why detectives, FBI agents, secret service agents, and others don't carry firearms. If they we...

So, you refuse to acknowledge that you were wrong when you stated this, even in the face of evidence to the contrary: There's no scenario in which a concealed firearm is a good option for self-defence. Firstly, no, that statement still stands. By "good option," I mean preferable to non-le...
