Well, Sixto, I thought I would take a crack at it, but I am horrible with multiple guess questions.
I will support gun control when you can guarantee all guns are removed from this planet. That includes military and law enforcement. When you can accomplish that, then I will be the last person to lay down my gun. Then I will carry the weapon that replaces the gun.
Some other things to consider:
The BG looks up at that big parabolic mirror behind the clerk and sees you, gun in hand hiding in the back. Now what?
You had better have made a 911 call immediately because you are about to be in need of some serious back-up of the uniformed kind.
You may well be on one of the numerous security cameras in the store. Imagine how it is going to play out on the national news that an armed customer, gun drawn, hides in the back of a convience store while the unarmed clerk is shot to death by a robber. And, when they stick a microphone in you face you say, "Hey she knew her job was dangerous. Sorry it worked out the way it did, but I don't stick my neck out for anyone. She should've had a gun of her own!"
Shoot, don't shoot, seconds to decide. Welcome to the world of your local LEO's.
