I carry a gun for the same reason I own a smoke detector...I never, ever, plan on needing them...but if I do need them, and have them in a box...I won't be able to get to them for use fast enough.

That says it all, right there. Using the above logic, one would think the sensible thing to do if ANY law were to be passed is to require citizens to be armed at all times if they're able.
- Your odds of drowning in a swimming pool are 1 in 6,279, and society has deemed it "sensible" to place live-saving devices and fences around the pool.
- Your odds of dying riding your bike are 1 in 4,111, and society has deemed it "sensible" to wear a helmet.
- Your odds of dying in a car accident are 1 in 261, and society has deemed it "sensible" to wear a seat belt.
- Your odds of dying from assault are 1 in 210. Why would anyone think it's not "sensible" to have a means of protection?
Your best weapon is your brain. Don't leave home without it.

How does disarming
the number of victims?

I constantly correct people, it is not “gun” violence it is criminal violence, the gun just happens the tool the criminal chooses to use. If guns were not available a criminal will just choose another weapon.
In the Brady bunch press release, Brady Campaign President Paul Helmke said that "in the New Year, we hope that our nation's leaders have the courage and conviction to take steps that will help protect our families and communities from gun violence."
When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.
