I would. How many thugs/criminals have guns? Would you like or dislike if someone attacked you, either to mug you and most of the time this leads to a woman gets raped, would you like a citizen that's armed come to your aid? Thugs buy their guns in alleys or steal them, the average person buys them legally and has a background check done before you can buy one. Never say this couldn't happen to me,it happens to hundreds of times "A Minute" to people all over the country.
