Hello there, I am joeybaggadonuts, not the famous gangster that has littered my nickname around since the 1980's. I have owned handguns mainly since I was 21, 15 yrs. and counting.
I go shooting as often as possible, learning and teaching myself many techniques, know many, master of none.
I feel it is necessary that all citizens of the United States actually own a firearm to defend themselves.
I also feel it necessary for all citizens train at least once a week, if financially that is not economical using live ammo, invest in snap caps. This will train you to not anticipate recoil, and give you a better feel of your weapon, since most just actually own guns in a safe somewhere until they want to carry it around.
The reason for all of this is for all to be able to defend themselves against many different types of people.
1) corruption in different organizations
2) who the F*&# will try to rape or rob some woman who will shoot you?
3) would criminals rob a bank if the teller will pull their 9 out on them?
4) who will mess with your grandmother when you are not there for her at the grocery store with her 357?
I have many more reasons for all to carry a firearm, but these are the major ones.
Gun Control= the theory that a woman found dead in an alley, raped and strangled with her own pantyhose, is somehow morally superior to a woman explaining to police how her attacker got that fatal bullet wound.
