I have ZERO faith in my fellow human beings. I understand that nobody out there is looking out for ME except ME. To that end I expect to be the one who walks away IF it ever gets to a point where I am involved in an altercation. That's just simple common sense so far as I'm concerned.

There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers
My question for you would be.... Why did you get the gun? Was it for protection? If so, then it is doing you no good in the state it is currently in, and you'd be better off selling it.

Maggie, that's not an effective self-defense strategy. From our conversations over time I'm not even confident that you would or could pull the trigger on another human being.
