And lots of people die violent deaths at the hands criminals. And criminals will not care about your "outlook" on things.
I lean other and have a dog, and video recorder-monitor, two deadbolts on the doors, and a loaded Mossberg 12 gauge w/000 buckshot & slugs next to our bed @ night.

I am a Lib. I keep a shotgun with me. Also have a .22 pistol and rifle and a Walther P99.
Edit to add: Also have a Walther PPK. It was my Dad's he bought it in the 60s?!?!
The only thing I fear is my not being able to defend home and family at the drop of the hat in a worse case scenario. That kind of fear is a good fear. It shows I give a damn about my home and family and am willing to do whatever whenever to protect them. Anything else is for men that have no balls to do so and are worthless husbands and fathers.
45 in headboard cond 2 with a 150 lumen flashlight that has a strobe feature (amazingly stunning if you are not prepared for it), long barrel AK clone in bedroom con 2, mosberg pump with #4 in living room for 4 footed varmints.
The rest unloaded and in the closet that stores my hunting/shooting clothes.
From my bed, I am seven seconds away from my weapon.
