WHY didn't anyone in that family own a firearm?????''
They live in Florida,a state with reasonable gun laws.
I endured 2 different home invasion robberies in Los Angeles.There is not much more terrifying than someone entering your home and ordering you around and stealing your things.I'm lucky theft was the worst of it.
IF I lived in a state with reasonable gun laws damn right I'd have a CC permit,and nobody would harm me and mine ever again.
You gun control nuts are ruining it for the rest of us.
I'm continually shocked at knowing how many scandalous critters own guns....and I do not mean in the 2nd Amendment Is Respected,states.I mean states like New Jersey and California,where it's pretty much just cops,veterans and dirtbags who pack......
Meanwhile it's next to impossible for the stripper or the cute soccer mom to protect herself from rape.
Now we are talking about mentally I'll people and not criminals. But still if a mentally I'll person is not in the same degenerate circles as illegal drug obtaining or illegal gun obtaining people, then yes illegal guns may, MAY, be harder to obtain. But again a mentally I'll person can do even more harm to innocent people with a vehicle driving through a city park or home made bombs or countless other evil things that would run through a mentally I'll persons mind.
Evil is evil. Inanimate objects are not evil. People need to be protected from other people. Same goes the world over since time has begun. The best way for people to be protected from other people is for someone to protect themselves. Using guns for protection is one of many many options to protect yourself. Don't get on the band wagon of denying someone's option of how they choose to protect them selves. To some, older widows for one example, it is all they have left to protect themselves and have the piece of mind and sense of security that left them with their dying husband's.
As far as people illegally obtaining guns...this WILL happen if they continue to restrict,just who can own a weapon.
I myself might end up breaking that law,because by what the laws say in MY favorite states to live work and have a HAPPY quality of Life,do not DEEM me Worthy of needing to remove myself from the "please rape and rob me",lists.
I hope lots of...braver souls than I....stand up,in those UnBrady states on the verge of becoming disarmed...please stand up for the 2nd Amendment so there still IS one by the time some of us can take advantage of its protections........
