Oh, and about your facetious comment about the "mean streets of Santa Barbara", take a look at facts. These may be from 2006, but they show 2 things: 1) Rapes and Aggravated Assaults were actually higher there than the national average. 2) Santa Barbara isn't the magical place free of crime that you are trying to paint it to be.

Yes, you are wrong.
Definition of coward from Merriam-Webster: one who shows disgraceful fear or timidity.
and now from the author: these weren’t little .22 caliber pistols ..., but much larger and more menacing handguns ... they appeared huge and menacing on the hip.
He is cowering (to shrink away or crouch especially for shelter from something that menaces, domineers, or dismays) from the inanimate objects on the coffee-drinkers hips.
To carry a gun on the streets of our society today is not cowardly, it is prudent. Crime happens anytime and anyplace. It is also not always as nice and neat as a 1 on 1 fist fight. It can be many against one. It can be pipes, chains or knives against a person's fists. It is not cowardly to be prepared. Is it cowardly to own a fire extinguisher in your home "just in case" a fire happens and you want to protect your loved ones? A gun is the "fire extinguisher" of crime. Unfortunately, crime does not only happen in home invasions or else we could all just leave our guns at home.

This coward who is so against guns, needs to look at the root cause of his own fears and deal with its root cause and not lash out at inanimate objects that he believes are so evil. If you need a little help Dan, read this:
