One issue is routinely disputed when the topic of gun control is raised, even among armed citizens themselves. It is the fear that someone out there lacks adequate training. The training issue has lately become more heated than usual on gun forums, because of a recent school shooting in Connecticut. Ever since laws were passed that forbid teachers from carrying guns in school, the United States, like Europe, has averaged about one school shooting every 60 days. (See this blog for details.) In simple fact, only one method has ever been proven to stop school shootings once and for all. That is to permit trained, licensed teachers to carry their sidearms on the job.
On average, 14.3 victims are killed in each mass shooting that is stopped by the police. On average, only 2.3 victims are killed in each mass shooting that is stopped by civilian bystanders.

Virtually everyone will defend their own spouse and children if the need arises. But how much risk would you take to protect your neighborhood? Would you risk criticism by your neighbors? Being shunned? Monetary expense? Physical injury? Imprisonment? Death?
Courts sometimes reach decisions that defy the law. Statutes and caselaw say one thing but courts rule differently. This is because, despite lifelong efforts by good people, every justice system is corruptible and they have been corruptible in all societies throughout history. In the United States, the justice system is often corrupted by mass hysteria. Since colonial times, the newsmedia have periodically whipped the public into blind frenzy. Judicial lynching is a realistic danger to every armed citizen who was forced to defend his home against thugs.
