Laws requiring gun ownership are obviously message laws that are (presumably)
not meant to be enforced. They do send a good message however. That you
shouldn't depend on others 100% for your or your families protection. The
police aren't always going to be able to be there on time. If the home
invader decides to, they can kill you before the police get there.For a gun to be a net benefit to you or tour family, gun safety rules need to
be followed. Otherwise the gun will be more of a liability than a benefit. If
you decide to invest in a gun, also invest some time to learn the rules of gun
safety and it's a good idea too to nest in some gun training.
