    Pretty much my sentiment. I have no particular interest in hunting, not worried about some totalitarian state trying to take over here, and I live in a low crime neighborhood, but if you want a firearm, knock yourself out.

    I have thought about it, but its a fairly expensive hobby and I hardly need it for self defense. I'm rather more interested in handloading and gunsmithing than shooting itself.

    I grew up in a house with many firearms. In fact, I still have a rifle at my parents house. However, I currently have no firearms in my home and have no plans to get any.

    If you're worried about someone knowing you have guns at home... well, I don't know why I'd worry about that. So maybe they can somehow find out who I am and where I am... I wish them much joy of it.

    When I'm not home, there are two dogs in the yard, and I also have armed neighbors who look out for each other's property, and armed family members living within a quarter mile. Trying to rob my place would be a really bad idea.

    I have an attack chihuahua. He'll roll over on his back and let you think you can rub his tummy, but it's just a ploy. He's very smart like that. He goads people in with his cuteness and then BAM! Attack chihuahua!

    This thread is useless without any pictures.

    Honest, chihuahuas worry me more than rottweilers in most cases.

    I can usually "charm" or "reason" with most dogs. A Rottie comes up to the fence barking like mad, and inside of thirty seconds I'm scratching his ears and inside the fence. No problem.

    Chihuahua's are often an entirely different matter. Often they choose not to be charmed, reasoned with, or intimidated by the fact that I'm Godzilla compared to them. They'll gleefully spend the entire time I'm in the yard trying to bite my Achilles tendon out.

    Good points for sure,... but I've already decided (where this poll is concerned) that I don't have any guns.

    I'm completely defenseless.

    I've got an attack chihuahua too, he's got a loud bark, but he's useless for anything but actign cute. Then again, I also have a male akita and he's extremely territorial and he weighs close to 200 pounds and anyone who invades his territory is history. I've got the bodies of cats, possums, birds, and numerous other critters that tried to horn in on his territory who paid for it.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
