Rachel, I understand your dislike of guns and feeling that less guns will mean less crime. You gave the example of being robbed and that people would usually give up their items rather than get in a gun fight. Although that is true let me give you an example. I am in my home and someone is attempting to break in. I likely would have time to get my gun and would have no idea what this crazy would want to do with me, my children or wife. Would you really want to allow that person in and hope for the best or warn him and then shoot him? I know I would hate to kill someone but would in defense of my house and family.
