    Default do people really have a gun?

    I have been reading several articles and in every one, a gun has been mentioned. I haven't even thought about this. I don't know what to do or even how to decide if my home would need a gun.
    The articles were referring to protecting yourself in the event of a disaster. Would I have the heart to use it if I caught someone stealing my water? I guess if I was put in that situation......
    This is a serious situation.
    Please FV family........do you or know of people having a gun for the sake of disasters?

    Let me add: I am an ER nurse and most of the time, I deal with idiots that have gotten hurt because of playing with a gun or the lack of knowledge of using a gun. Plus, I grew up in the city where guns was also a bad thing. So, I haven't thought of anything positive about guns.

    We have guns because we hunt deer. Those are the only guns we have.

    I am in the midst of getting my concealed pistol license right now. I hope I never need it.

    Read some of the posts on here regarding the possible collapse of the US government and how people are stockpiling because of that thinking. Is it possible? Anything is, so it's better to have and not need vs need and not have?

    Well, maybe I feel the same way with the concealed pistol. Though, there have been a few times around the house I wish I had it... rabid coons, a wounded groundhog, etc.

    I also have shotguns and rifles for hunting.

    We have quite a few guns. The guys hunt and a few are old collectables. Dh wants a handgun just for the heck of it not to defend ourselves.

    DH was a big into handguns before we got married, so we do have some, however it's a hobby he really hasn't persued recently. I did take a class last year to get my permit, but that's more because we have a child, and I want to be able to safely handle them if I have to since they are in the house. Getting my permit is still on the to-do list for me, partly because its $100. I don't plan on going out and getting my own gun, though.

    We have guns for a variety of reasons and that includes defending what we hold dear, whether that means our water supply or our lives. Having a gun means we have choices we can make and not be at the mercy of others.

    Dh has hunting rifles, but I have been wanting to learn to shoot and get my own so I can protect myself as well as feed myself if I ever had too. Oh and the guns are kept safely locked up away from little hands.

    Personally, I own no gun, but my husband does (for work). I live with well-trained dogs as a crime deterrent. I have no problem with responsible people owning guns, though. I just am not one to be interested in that type of protection. Maybe I'll change my mind someday. . .

    ~Many people have guns(35-50% of Americans) and most are good gun owners. You don't hear a lot about them because they are responsible and safe and don't feel they need to prove how awesome or tough they are by brandishing them about. They have them for work, hunting, protection or sport shooting.
    The criminals get all the interest of the media and Government. They like highlighting the bad news because that's what sells.~
