There are so many closed minded anti-gun people out there.
Something for those folk to consider, that hate guns and call it the number one weapon for killing another living thing.
The very first killing weapon created by humans was a bladed object. And till today it is the number one choice of a killing weapon.
It's inexpensive, easy to hide/conceal, anyone can get one, and makes no loud noise.
And this question may seem morbid.
But if you were to be confronted by a bad guy, would you prefer to be shot, or have your throat sliced, and stabed in the gut?.
