I believe strongly in the right to own a gun and if I had one it would be for social unrest not home defense. As long as I'm physically able to use a putter against someones kneecap that will have to suffice. My worst nightmare is to unload a clip into a family member or teenage kid making a stupid decision. How many times have you hopped out of bed because something went "crick!" in the night and held a bat, club etc? Or did you have a handful of .44 magnum Desert Eagle ready to turn someone into meatloaf?
