  •  What about tazers? (0+ / 0-)

    Baseball bats, dogs, or any number of other options besides guns?

    Why does it always have to be a gun to protect yourself?

    •  Because guns are the most effective... (0+ / 0-)

      ...and subject me to the least risk.

      Tazers can only engages a single target. Bats are ineffective until you're close enough to be overpowered in spite, and aren't easily portable. A dog trained to effectively defend you is a huge liability risk, and cannot be taken with you off of your property for that reason.

      Guns are the best option availible to me, and the only option explicitly protected by the Constitution.
