Just to clarify this: My fears are that people go nuts. And people with
guns can do more bad things than people without. (Okay, repeat the argument
about the canister with gasoline, but we currently need gasoline to fuel
our cars. We don't really need guns in our every day live).

Once again: I am terrible afraid when I know that people around have
weapons. I am more afraid of any "law abiding citizen" who carries a gun,
than I am otherwise afraid of falling victim to a violent crime. (Running
amok woth a gun is a violent crime...)

My feeling is that everyone who thinks he must carry a gun is so fearful
and so near to the brink of paranoia that he is a high risk of eventually
going nuts.
