Self defense …
The primary uses of firearms are recreation and self-defense. Relatively few people have any issues with firearms used for the recreational purposes of target shooting and hunting.
More people seem to have issues with firearms used for self-defense.
Every living thing on this planet is born with a natural right to defend itself. Every bug, every cat or dog, and every human being. Some people doubt this, at first. To those I ask, “Do you own your body? Or do the police?” (…pause for reflection…) “If you own your body, are you not responsible for its well-being and protection?”
