    That is a completely stupid statement! There are some people that will never carry and honestly they shouldn't. Some people are just not a "gun carrying" person.

    Not everyone has the ability or desire to be armed.

    I have little compassion for folks who won't shoulder any responsibility for their own defense while simultaneously demanding that others risk their lives in defense of them.

    But that's a long way from holding no sympathy for a person's plight simply for happening to not be armed during a crime.

    Wow... that was my initial thought. Sounds like a twisted attempt to divert blame and responsibility from the offender.

    Being armed is a right, not a requirement.

    Is this a serious question? Are you just trolling here, or what? What kind of responses were you expecting/hoping to get?

    Just because we are a forum devoted to the legal carry of firearms does not mean we believe that anyone who does not carry a firearm deserves to be the victim of a crime.

    Arm victims who are in a situation where it would be better to not draw then to draw should have sympathy. unfortunitly not everwhere allows you to carry such as D.C I believe!? the sympathy for a victim is gray to me. Such as we all know there are places you should not go with or without a gun at specific times. If you choose to do that then you had it coming.

    So if I were attacked in a place that I have a legal right to be I somehow deserved what a criminal does to me?

    There is a hideous story from the north central part of the states that just happened. A father killed his 15 week old daughter in a rather evil way. She didn't have any firearms training yet!

    It isn't about rights. I hope you don't go walking around looking for trouble. I don't no what you area is like but I can tell you this. Having spent time in Newark, NJ, Camden, NJ, Oakland, CA and various other places that are in the same ball park I can tell you that you just don't walk down the road that has 20-30 Crip members hanging out on it. right or not it is a bad idea and you will have something happen to you. laws are man made, criminality is nature. does the lone zebra walk through the lions den? No the zebra does not.

    ^^This right here^^ says it well.

    I feel sympathy for ANY victim of senseless crime but I personally chose not to be a victim if I can help it and feel bad when I see that arming themselves may have helped. Yeah, I may say that "they should have been armed" but that's why I go armed. The example of those people to me, are more like a, "See? That's why I am armed so I don't have to, (hopefully) go through what they just did." Unfortunate things happen to great people and violent crime is one of those things.

    To pose that question is almost to put it as they deserve it just because they weren't armed. But that's almost like saying, "Do you think that people who aren't Olympic swimmers deserve sympathy when they drown?" or "I don't feel sorry for those people broke down on the side of the road. They're not mechanics." But you didn't mean it like that, right?
