Owning a gun AND HAVING THE RIGHT TO PROTECT YOURSELF is your given America right. I have just been granted a Class A LTC w/ no restrictions and I could not be happier.....here's why
When I was 18 IN BROAD DAY LIGHT I was grabbed by a very large man who was accompanied by two of his large male friends..and I was assaulted and thank god I lived to tell about it.....if it happens again I will be prepared and no one will ever lay a hand on me.
To me, not owning a gun for protection is pretty much telling the world " I will be a victim, I'm not prepared, kill me". Every day is a mystery and you never know what will happen..why should you accept the risk of dying?
That day I got grabbed I was just out for lunch with my two friends a great day, I never suspected that with in hours I'd be laying on the floor screaming for him not to touch me.
And the truth is, a gun will stop someone. Saying, "Oh no please don't" will not.
When it comes down to it, if it's between my life and the intruders; it's going to be theirs that gets taken
