The anti-gun crowd, and especially those against citizen carry, have often used the argument that no one besides the police should be allowed to have a gun because tempers will flare and quiet little suburbs will revert back to days of the "wild west" (which, really, was never as wild as they like to claim), there will be blood in the streets, and people will be shooting each other over parking spaces.
We gunnies scoff at that, saying that those things'll never happen.
Oh, but they do.
Two young men, both concealed carry permit holders, lost their lives over $10 in downtown Cleveland. One of them is lost forever, two shots to the abdomen and one to the head. The other has nothing now but time, watching the best years of his life slip away in prison.
It's unimaginable - the loss of so much over something so trivial and that a single moment of anger could prove so costly - but in reality, we all know the that this is how most tragedies happen. We can only clean up the aftermath and glean what truths remain...
...if you walk away from a fight, keep going.
