Damn dude, calm the fuck down.
At no point did I say Bear spray was better you fucking neanderthal. You might have noticed that if you learned how to read instead of going into a blood rage at anyone who isn't explicitly saying guns are god's gift to man and anyone who doesn't carry is a huge faggot /in/tard communist.
I don't even disagree with carrying a gun. I carry a gun. I'm not saying prove me wrong with hard evidence or bear spray is better than guns. I'm not even saying bear spray is better than guns.
I'm just saying, with what is available, that bear spray can be effective if you don't want to carry a firearm, or can't cause they live in a state or country with shitty firearm laws. The other guy was the one saying guns are worse.
Maybe don't get so defensive either when someone asks for evidence. I legitimately would love to see a good study that compares the two methods of defense. It makes you sound like a moron.
You can call out the problems with the study, that's fine. But a study having issues doesn't mean the findings are necessarily wrong and that the opposite point is necessarily correct. If you didn't take a position, I wouldn't be so bothered, but you go beyond saying a study doesn't present enough evidence, then take up the opposite position and provide nothing to back it up and then can't even see the hypocrisy of that.
