Your point about wives and daughters is my main motivation for getting a handgun. He could've easily overpowered me, had his way and then went for my 12 and 5 year old daughters. A gun is the only means of protection against something like that especially since I live in the country. Noone could hear my calls for help out here so a bullet would be my only saving grace. I don't think self defense would help much in my situation because he was a lot bigger than me.
As far as I'm concerned, a gun is the only way to go. If it's an assault rifle, all the better.

How would you feel if the Imam at your local mosque was handing this out?
Inner city boys and girls club?
Would it change anyones views on it or still just protecting your family?
Could anyone other then a church get away with giving a child a gun?
Could they just give the gun to the child or would they have to give it to a guardian or with permission from one?
