Yeah thats about the long and short of it. What else would I really care to hide, that can be talked about here

And false safety is the only kind of safety there is... aside from asceticism.

I want to be a nomad. I want to roam. There is a damn good chance you will find me in all of those places. I just want a place where I can put things that no body needs to know I have that I don't want to just tuck into the back of the closet. Emergency supplies that I won't share if and when SHTF.

I'll grant that firearms don't guarantee safety, but the deterrent factor that the people in a given car/house/RV MAY be armed tends to make everyone safer. I sleep better knowing I have the ability to defend myself against encroaching humans, bears, coyotes and rabid raccoons.

I consider my stuff to be sporting goods as opposed to defensive; I have a carry permit but rarely actually walk around armed, but in the back of my mind I know that even my old date-correct Garand hanging on the wall as decoration may well save my life some day.

Pretty much my feelings on the subject.

All your doing is supplying the criminal with a weapon.

That weapon will be used on you, your loved ones, and everyone around you.

The issue is, 99% of people can't pull the trigger. From there the attacker takes the weapon.

If you all carried bear spray, or a taser, you would all be far safer. No more trigger fear of killing someone. Therefore the trigger gets pulled and the intruder gets stopped.

I have seen this over and over again in real life. I can tell right away when someone sticks a gun in my face by the look in their eyes if they can pull the trigger of not. 99% on this continent simply can't.

That's why guns are a false feeling of safety.

You just say that because you can't have em. Sounds more like jealousy than rationality.

Who ever said I can't have them?

Nothing stopping me from owning any weapon I want.

I grew up using them everyday. Spent 4.5 years serving my county using them every day. Fully licensed now, just no interest in giving intruders weapons.

If I ever need a gun, there are plenty of idiots that bring one to the location.

A few members here need to spend some time over seas like I have. You would get a big eye opener on many things in life. You would come back a better, more understanding person.

Actually I am jealous of our friends up North. Properly licensed, they have the availability of many firearms I would like in my collection that you just can't find here in the states unless it is greatly inflated in price.
