JQP: I was probably better off without one.I don't understand why you would say this if you were properly trained in the use of a gun you owned. What is wrong with having a weapon to defend yourself and your home? What if someone invaded your home in the middle of the night or tried to hijack your car? Wouldn't you feel better knowing you could defend yourself and your property?
I don't get why people want to be helpless rather than in a powerful position to defend themselves if they need to. I just want to know the why? We live in dangerous times.
