Re: Guns

You may live in a very safe environment, where you never feel it necessary to carry a weapon.  I don't, so I elected to be trained on both proper operation of a firearm and its legally sanctioned applications to protect my life and safety, as well as that of others. 


To think that the one deputy on duty in this huge county would make it to my house in time to fend off an intruder is a ridiculous hope.  Judging people who feel the need to secure the safety of their families is pretty harsh. 


I would rather be armed and not need to be, than need to be and not be armed...that  was the basis of my decision to earn a carry permit.
