Actually its not. You have to get a background check to get them, their is waiting periods etc. As for the shootings, we are actually in the most peaceful era our species has ever known. your chance of being shot are.03% and thats taking into account accidents, non lethal and lethal, criminals shot and those shot by criminals. Your chances of getting into a car accident on the other hand is 1.8%.As for the shootings deaths, those are even rarer, in fact your total chance of being murdered is only.005%. If you look at gun deaths based upon type of gun used, the media would have you believe that rifles are used to murder people all the time but in fact more people are killed with hammers then with rifles and more people are killed with bare hands then are killed with hammers. And if you take into account those killed with knives, this is more common then both shotgun and rifle deaths combined.Then if you look at the data, people with concealed carry licenses actually have to have a cleaner record then police do, and studies show that in areas were concealed carry is allowed their is LESS violence not more. The fact is if your concerned about violence, the biggest determining factor for that is not guns, its fatherlessness. 80% of inmates come from single mother homes. Its unrelated to whether or not they had a gun.
Just stating a fact but your welcome.
Nice buddy 👍
Oh, and it looks like a Springfield polymer 9mm, the XD is a line of theirs, and the SA XD is here: www.springfield-armory.com/xd-series-handguns/

Some states like mine are constitutional carry
@reptocarlMy state is constitutional carry too, but is also a "shall issue" state for concealed carry permits.
Looks like it might be a Sig Sauer, possibly a P239.
Re update: It's a Springfield Armory XD.
@LuvMeSomeBoys what do you mean by constitutional carry?
@spartan55 constitutional carry? What
I don't know the exact details, but it allows you to OPEN CARRY in states that have it.
@spartan55 if you have a permit, aren’t you allowed to carry a gun? What state doesn’t allow you to carry a gun at all times if you have a permit?
Different states by law have certain places where you cannot concealed carry. The state I live in includes: schools, sports venues, government owned property etc. Individual can also post signage on the entrance prohibiting legal concealed carry.
@On_cloud_wine constitutional carry means anyone that’s legal to carry a gun can without permits or licenses. In my state we have constitutional carry and we can carry openly as many firearms as we want but long guns must be on a sling
@reptocarl2 how can it be legal to carry a gun without a license or permit?
@On_cloud_wine because some states have declared licenses and permits to be unconstitutional. Criminals have always carried without those. So 14 states have constitutional carry to allow law abiding citizens the same freedom criminals have
@On_Cloud_Wine. To echo and amplify other comments, Constitutional (or permitless) Carry means that as long as one is a resident of the state, and as long as one is legally eligible to purchase and own a firearm, a citizen may legally carry a firearm without requirement to apply for or obtain a permit or license. 14 states have Constitutional Carry within the framework of their state laws, based on their state constitutions. There are more restrictions on Constitutional Carry than there are on those who have Concealed Carry licenses or permits. The first one being one has to be a resident of that state, and the right extends only within that state (with a few rare exceptions), but a license or permit holder may carry in states that honor your state’s license. There are usually more restrictions as to where one may carry for those who carry without permit.
guns have a safety
I'm glad I'm Aussie. We don't have this trap of guns. Its like a drug, people are so addicted to the idea that it will save them no matter the horrible circumstances that guns put you in. Once you get one, you can't live without it
@888theGreat Can you please explain why the US homicide rate is considerably higher than equivalent countries that have stricter gun laws?
I am unsure 🤔 but two guys don't like this post 🙃 I'm popular
@888theGreat I don't believe in safetys makes them worthless. Don't even know how to use most of mine, but I'm old fashion
@Jjpayne sorry dear
No worries wowgirl it was not you 🙃
you Britts can just talk someone to death.
90% of households own guns in my state
Well 90% would be totally normal then and i wouldn't care because i would be conditioned to that.
We don’t play with or throw them around
didn't you play cops and robbers as a kid?
@888theGreat not carrying real guns
@888theGreat... not the best argument to make her feel less afraid of guns bro...
If a date insists that he's on duty and his duty entails that he has to carry his gun, then he should've taken me out on a date when he's off duty.
Agree. Purses are for keys, wallets and about anything else but a useless place to carry a handgun.
@LuvMeSomeBoys Tampons, chapstick, phone, lotion, even an extra mag. But not your CCW, you would either have to set the thing down, or hold on to it constantly, neither of which are a good option.
@Quakthulu. Agree, I don’t even keep the extra mag in my purse. If 15+1 doesn’t do it, I want the extra mag on me. I probably won’t even know where my purse is, let alone be able to get quick access to it.
@LuvMeSomeBoys I only have an 8+1 and you would be surprised how often people, even well trained people, miss while under that kind of stress. But no, I don’t actually keep an extra mag in my purse either, but I could understand why someone might.
Maybe you should use a holster? 😗
@COMMODOREII Yeah, I have an appendix holster
Cool 😗 @quackthulus and @luvmesomeboyso why did you decide to pack? Im just curious. I've never thought about it, but i am wondering if it is good to get a gun.
@LuvMeSomeBoys why did you decide to pack?
I live in St Louis and have been assaulted. Pretty high risk here. Plus I’m a criminal defense attorney and get a few death threats. I work in a profession where nobody likes you until he or she needs you. And a lot of those who don’t like you (victim families, or the accused’s family in some cases) want to kill you. Plus it’s a constitutional right; like a muscle, if it isn’t exercised it atrophies and dies.
@LuvMeSomeBoys i think i like you more. 😮😍😍😍💓😘
@Quackthulu @Agape93 I carry in a fanny pack a lot. The fanny pack It's see threw so it's not a concealed gun everyone can see it. 🙂 Just sharing
I have a fanny pack I will use too when I go running because nothing else is fitting in those pants.
My friend ☺️
I would feel safer
I respect that.
That's sad some females are responsible and carry them for safety. Shame you would judge rhat
Shame they have to have them.
It's not the area we carry it the world we carry for the people in it all over who are dangerous
LOL A woman who I dated told me about her gun a few times and she always wanted to show me. She had a pink.38 but I never wanted to see it. Safer put away and not out. She didn't carry it with her. It was at home.
I live in a constitutional carry state too. Marry me
Aww thanks for the proposal. I haven’t been divorced all that long, and I’m not ready to marry again quite yet ❤️
Well when you are let me know
Thank you you’re sweet.
Wow , that's well horrible
No guns allowed in the UK anyone here would freak out
What a pussy
@reptocarl2 hahaha anyone who carries a gun has an intent to kill so whatever America is trigger happy
We only do when we get fucked with
@reptocarl2 says a lot about gun owners tbh 😒
We carry because criminals carry
@reptocarl2 the likelihood of you getting shot by your own gun is statistically high 😂😂😂👌 not going to get into an amendment argument I'm not going to take it kindly if my date feels it makes them safer when it clearly doesn't. Who is the pussy? 🙄
You are a pussy and that statistic is untrue
@βιυεsκγs It's reality.
Good for you
I would to in that case
🤣🤣🤣💜💙💚💛💛🧡💫✨✨💫🌟⭐🌆 yayyyyyy Alberto. ..
Why not a gun? If she doesn't really know you how could she know that you don't have one for yourself. You say women should stay feminine but pepper spray or tazers aren't very effective against a rapist with a gun.
@ettubrutus well that's your opinion and mine is different than yours...Girls shouldn't carry guns... neither men!What's funny is: taking someone in a date and carrying a gun, WHAT A DATE! 😏
tbh I understand if u carry a taser or a pepper spray around but is it that necessary to carry a gun around (unless if you actually think you're in danger)?
Someone on drugs or crazy could walk through both. I've seen it
Lazy guy. Lol
most of the time she gives him the purse to carry while she tries shoes , like she needs another pair
have some compassion, we don't have enough pockets for life's modern demands
@888theGreat be nice to the lady please
Ni because I carry one myself
@sylvia89 carry a purse? See in my day when i got a girlfriend. I usually carry my own stuff. There may have been a time or two where i might put my stuff in my exes purse but then i carry the purse. 😎
behind her would be a great place to be anyway
Anywhere on, under, over, or near her I think. Mmhmm.
Update: That is a Springfield XD.I'm not sure whether it is a 9mm, or something bigger, but it is definitely an XD.I know because my brother had one for his first CCW weapon.👍
what a woose
@888theGreat that's not cool. Cop calling isn't nice
A woman who owns a firearm is very different from a dumbcunt who steals someones gun and plays with it like its a toy.
Or shoots you on purpose for calling her a dumb fuck.
