I do and I want people to know that I do. Do I want to use the guns for defense of my person or property? The answer is no I never want to use guns for defense. I know police officers retired and active that have never removed their weapon in the line of duty. The ones that have have one or two stories to tell. I plan to stay prepared and hone my skills. I take pride in never using a weapon on another person. For those of you that were to take the use of a weapon lightly to defend actions that are justified may take all the money you have in this world. It is but a moment to make a decision to use a weapon. Please be informed that the freedom to own a gun has a responsibility that comes with the box
No. I don't hunt, and using a gun to defend myself in my apartment would be impractical. I live in a one-room apartment, so if someone breaks in, there's no "I think I heard something downstairs; maybe I should go check it out." I am immediately confronted by the intruder. If it were to happen when I'm asleep, I'd have to turn on a light, find my glasses, and then draw my gun. That would take way too much time, and ultimately, I believe I would hesitate to shoot anyway, which is almost as good as handing my gun to an intruder.
On the other hand, if I were to store a gun on the premises, a burglar might find it while I'm away at work, and then sell it to someone who would use it to mug people. What good would that do?
I do not feel safe answering this question at this time. I must respectfully ask for a "none of one's business" option.
I have several plus enough ammunition for all... that is unless as I sit here in the local library where under law I am not allowed to carry one, my guns are being stolen from my home as we speak!
Q: What do you call a "gun-free zone"?
A: A target rich environment!
I call them "Criminal Protection Zones" because the only people made safer by a "gun free zone" are the criminals.
