I find it quite interesting that people who own guns say they do so for defence, which implies they have them to use on intruders/attackers but I'm intrigued to hear if you have ever actually had to use one. I find the thought of shooting someone quite scary and horrible to be honest and I am quite interested to hear what normal average Joes like myself would feel about killing or maiming someone? The way I hear Americans speak about it it seems to be quite matter of fact and just kinda "done". I'd have second thoughts about punching someone full force never mind firing at someone!
Well as I mentioned there's no point of having in the country since our ***** laws stink, but I have had to fend off people with knives and bats before with my MMA training alone when I would have rathered scared them off or shot them with my gun. And no one actually wants to use a gun on a person anyhow it's just a precaution and to hope it doesn't happen. But all too often when theres a serial attacker like sandy hook guy and dark knight rises guy, there's not a soul to fire back and stop the carnage. And I believe the areas these attacks happen are mainly gun free zones anyhow so it doesn't matter.
