My friend, I appreciate your logical retort and I respect your candor. Although I was once in the frame of mind that I assume you find yourself in.
I hate violence and look down upon those who choose guns as a first resort( unless confronted in dead sleep with a home invasion... then all bets are
off), but I assure you, if you are confronted by unsavory individuals that wish you or your family harm, your natural instinct will take over and deal
with the situation.
I have no frame of reference with your life experience, but I believe it is our inalienable right to defend what is yours. The sad issue is that guns
are the main weapon of choice by criminals, which have sparked this unholy debate.
Believe me, if your back is against the wall and do not have the luxury to flee, you do whatever it takes to defend your family first, then yourself,
and then your property.
Do not take this the wrong way, but weakness in the face of aggression disgusts me. The best weapon you have is your instincts and brain. Using a
gun, unless violence is imminent, is a last resort, but if the unsavory pushes, you push back to the point that their entire gang, tribe, clan or
whatever will never cross the line against you or yours in their generation.
