    If you really need to kill the bears for their arms then use a bear trap or bow and arrow.

    Right?!
    I live alone, and I own a gun. I keep it in a locked metal drawer in my closet. That being said, a gun is just a tool, like a saw or a hammer. I don't know any saw-lovers or hammer-lovers, though. Gun-lovers are just psychopaths.

    Serious question, Suzianne. If someone broke into your home, how long would it take you to unlock the drawer and get the gun out? Also, could you do it without making a noise?

    I can't even remember how many women have told me they really wished they'd had a gun available when they perceived danger ! A defensive weapon needs to be within arms reach in the sanctity their own homes !

    Please call your local Law Enforcement agency to ask them if your self defense weapon should be more readily available. It could save your life..

    It's locked with a keypad entry, so no need for a key. I can key in the code in the dark by feel and the drawer has a soft motion when opened. Lined with a foam rubber material, even taking out a gun weighing a few pounds won't make noise. The only loaded magazines in there are for that gun so no fumbling in the dark. The loudest noise would be the cocking of the slide.

    All that said, it is there as a last resort. I have a black belt and I feel confident protecting myself. I've trained in going up against armed attackers. I have more tools than just a gun.

    I was vulnerable at one point in my life and was taken advantage of. Never again.

    Agreed. What's to love about a damned gun? They're made for killing. Fact of life. God forbid you or I should ever need to use one.

    Isn't it in the constitution because a well armed society is the best defence against FOREIGN invaders?

    Does that amendment not say something like that?

    They won't say that after the robot uprising.
