I feel pretty darn good knowing I have the opportunity to defend my family if and when the time comes. Look at the concentration of crimes, specifically crimes committed with firearms. You will notice several things. 1. the inner-cities are becoming exceedingly dangerous (rampant gangs, poor parenting, etc...) 2. Legal gun owners rarely commit these crimes. 3. Focus is in areas which have high concentrations of minorities (before you shout racism, I'm an American that happens to black). 4. Citizens cannot protect themselves because restrictive laws to include this sue happy culture we have.
