Default Anybody else on here own firearms

Just curious really. Whenever I tell someone that I own firearms they just seem freaked out by it. Especially if the conversation goes that I also have mental illnesses. My psychiatrist and therapist were very adamant that I get rid of them. So just curious, I feel like I might be the only one on here.

Not yet, but I intend to get one soon. I am alone most of the time, and I am not in the physical shape I was in (obviously) as when I was younger. I couldn't even run away if I had to. This is a small town, the police department is a JOKE on so many levels, and we have more than our share of crackheads. I am not going to let some indigent steal the things I have worked hard for. END OF. HOWEVER....I will NOT get a CC. I realize that I have too much of a temper and dislike of people, and going to jail would be counter-productive.

I have no desire to own a firearm. People who have them in the house are more likely to be accidentally shot by a family member than to shoot someone who's breaking in. Plus I'm clumsy and don't know how to use a gun. And I deal with guilt a lot. If I killed someone, I don't think I could live with myself.

No. I do know how to use a gun. But I have no desire to have guns around. I am not in law enforcement or military. So no need for guns for me

- NEVER - and I would never knowingly enter a household which had them. In fact, I steer clear of those who would own them to begin with. I don't need people like that in my life.

No. I am not a hunter, police officer, military person, FBI, or any other type of security or law enforcement person. Also, I don't want to shoot anyone or anything, including myself. So, I will not have a gun.

I live in a pretty safe area.

Default Anybody else on here own firearms

I got into guns when I was sixteen and I moved to Virginia USA. Before then I never touched a gun since I lived abroad. But I had a very natural gift when it came to handling and shooting a firearm. I was a great shot and could easily out shoot those with much more experience than I. So I began competing and that led to carrying. Then not carrying, to buying and selling, etc...

No I dont own any, but I understand people who own them for protection.

I am curious about them I'll admit. I wouldnt even go near buying or owning one without lessons. I live in a state with the most strict gun laws so I do not even know what owning one would entail.

The only people who actually need a firearm are those who find it necessary to hunt to feed their families. Somehow, I don't see a great need for such traditional lifestyles South of the 49th parallel. And, as I've said before, you don't need an assault weapon to do so either.
