No. I would feel less safe if there were more people carrying hand guns. Guns should be left at home.
Rifles are different, I guess I'll have to learn the laws about carrying hunting equipment. I've seen guys around here with them set up on their
quads. They seem safer.
Gun violence is really low here, and probably half the people that get killed by guns here, are innocent citizens caught in the cross fire (not aimed
at), usually in the city. If people were armed and carrying everywhere they went, there would be more deaths.
Guns should NEVER be brought into a bar. They don't mix well with drunks.
I do wish we had better laws for defending our homes though, we should have the right to shoot intruders that mean to do us harm. We're supposed to
somehow run away instead
To only use the amount of force absolutely necessary, but how does one determine that? If I was a 200 lb guy, I would have a better chance of fighting
off an intruder. As a 120 lb woman, I have to rely on having dogs, and hope they can do their job with being harmed. If someone gets through my dogs,
I would like to be able to shoot to kill, because by that time, I would know the intruder meant to harm or kill me.
Home defense laws here are so murky, I could go to jail for defending my own life.
Thankfully, in the country, intruders would expect to run into rifles, and with our wide open wilderness, they might also expect to never be heard
from again........We also have backhoes for digging deep holes....
At least they finally killed the long gun registry, so I'm allowed to have a rifle, but proper storage is an issue. Guns locked in one safe, ammo in
