This is why education is so important. The tons of files on actual gunfights...the number of hits opponents take and keep on shooting (who cares if they die later...they keep shooting for a long time before that).....the reality is that NO ONE wants to be involved in a shooting. The toll will be high. Period. The odds are you WILL be hit and maybe die. Do anti-gun people actual think that people 'prepared to use guns' think that guns are magic shields? We KNOW they are not. That delusion may be their but it is not ours.
But why should it be one-sided? If you want to open yourself up to victimization, that's fine. I'd rather take the time (and enjoy) to train and be better prepared to defend myself than leave myself open to the whims of someone breaking into my home.
