I do not own a gun, and may never own a gun. However, I find the reasons for owning one compelling. Were I ever to own one, I would hope never to have to use it, save on a prowling coyote or rabid beast, but clearly the Founders had the foresight to create the Second Amendment. Contrary to popular myth, this was not to protect hunters peering down the scope of a musket. Please view the rather helpful – if controversial – commentary at this link.
Then, if you still disagree, at least we can be on common footing, which is clearly where many who feel they have a stake in this debate are not standing.
