The thing I don't understand about gun owners 'feeling safe' about having guns around is that if someone wants to shoot you, they are going to do it. They will not wait until you go get your gun to defend yourself.
Considering this target shoot with a 30 caliber KAL w/ scope at 50+ yards, it seems apparent that there would be little to do in terms of defense if the shooter made the first move. Perhaps someone with a gun could kill the shooter after he has already killed you, so how's that making you safer?
OK, so you like to "kill it and grill it." Since I'm not a meat eater, I don't relate but OK, use your rifles to feed yourself... but handguns? What are they good for?
In the words of Lynyrd Skynyrd:
Hand guns are made for killin'Less guns will make the world better, safer. America agrees:
Aint no good for nothin else
