Its something so mundane, owning a fire arm when you get down to it, because 99.9% of the time you never really need it, other that for recreational shooting, or hunting or what have you. But when you really need one, in 100% of the case you will need one badly. Better to have one and not need it, than to need one and not have one. A good example would be the morning or September 11, 2001. No Shortage of cell phones, plenty of box cutters, not a fire arm to be had. Its really not about guns you know, you can't turn a Free and Armed people into serfs, unless you first disarm them. That is the real issue.
