    Everyone who owns a gun does not lust after bigger guns.

    Ever lived on the edge of a wilderness where bears and mountain lions and coyotes walk by your home?

    I am a person with a gun in my home who is not a nut. I'm a liberal all my life. I don't love guns, I just just don't like going for a walk in the woods without one.

    But then, last time I did go without  one I was accosted by an elderly German man who followed me.

    •  Or, have you even been a woman about to be raped? (0+ / 0-)

      I have known a few...one in my family, one a close friend.

      One was spared this life-altering and potentially damaging horror only because someone's car alarm went off in the apartment complex. The other was saved because she had a small handgun in her purse...right next to her gun carry permit.

      Not all gun owners are nuts...that's quite certain.

      •  Twice in my life, actually (0+ / 0-)

        Someone tried to abduct me once.
