When the cops show up, they may be choosing between two thugs to determine who was the attacker and who acted in self-defense.

    Now, obviously many people are going to be less than sympathetic to a victim who they feel has been less than virtuous - "Let them kill each other", and so on. The reality though is that self-defense is a basic human right and even felons have to defend themselves if threatened with a gun.

    Whats a bad neighborhood ?

    if you think any neighborhood in America is immune from crime and is a good neighborhood , then you don't need a weapon, you can just stay in those safe neighborhood and you'll never need to carry.

    Even the "10 Safest City in America" has seen murders,
    I wont link to sources of Crime in the Suburbs, because lurking antis may pick up the info and use against the Pro2A movement

    Or maybe you can tell us where in the US we can live, where we don't have to "carry" ?

    Exactly

    these expensive devise does nothing to reduce crime

    someone may already have been hit with the shot fired, only thing the device does is alert the police to the location, AFTER THE SHOT has already been fired, and victim may already have been hit.

    They have been installed in Boston a long while now, and no reduction in crime, no increase in solved cases.

    Katie Couric, while interviewing a Marine sniper, asked:

    'What do you feel when you shoot a Terrorist?'

    The Marine shrugged and replied,


    'A slight recoil.'

    The shots it picks up are usually in areas the cops won't go into at night anyway without the SWAT.
    The uninformed would vote the people back into office thinking there going to fix crime.

    the devices also have cameras... can't say I like that.. seems like just another way to have some one watching what you are doing at any given moment.. people playing God... if they are going to spend so much money on something like that.. they should issue military weapons to law abiding households like switzerland... and they have the lowest crime in europe!

    Birmingham just installed this system. They had a write up in the local paper had an article about the first arrest attributed to the system. It said police were first notified of shots fired by the system and individual 911 calls helped them pinpoint the location and catch the suspect. It says the system can differentiate between firecrackers and shots. That's a big problem around here as on the 4th or New Years the police are inundated with shots fired calls, many of which turn out to be fireworks. Maybe they should just rent it twice a year.

    While in theory I don't think it is a bad idea. If I have to fire my handgun I will be calling the police anyway. Therefore, I do not have anything to fear from it. However, I have a hard time believing that the cameras would actually be able to identify a suspect. Hopefully if they can it is the right suspect. Even with increased response time from LEO's the BG could fire and be long gone before they arrived. I guess this is obvious from the other cities that have tried it. I think it is just a political ploy to make the sheepie feel better.

    Ummm...at what point did I say it's unnecessary to carry in any particular neighborhood? Where to carry wasn't even the subject under discussion - and I carry in all neighborhoods, regardless of income.
