Please note; This thread is not caused to divide any brothers and sisters based on political principals that are subjective to personal environments. Based on the past few recent years and the way the world works, what are your personal opinions, practices and ideas on owning a gun? I ask this mostly because where I am from, pretty much everyone has a gun, in church and out of church. I'd like to see insight from around the world. Personally, I carry a gun at the very least in my truck everywhere I go. Mostly for nabbing dinner if it happens to cross the road at the wrong time However I have drawn a firearm while calling for 911 to de-escalate a criminal situation, and would not hesitate to do such again. I believe that an armed society is a safe society. However, I only did, and only would draw a gun if I felt somebody else's life was at risk. Aside from that, I just use them to harvest meat for the freezer.
