I live out in the country more than 20 minutes from any law enforcement and over a mile from any neighbors. I am truly on my own for self-defense and protecting my family. The few times we have had any problems in the community, it has been with 3-5 young men driving around stealing and vandalizing. A three round hunting rifle isn't going to be enough if they decide to come in the house like what happened in IN COLD BLOOD. Right now, I keep a 17 round 9mm on the night stand next to my bed at night and high on a shelf during the day (so the grandkids can't get it if they come over).
Who is Bloomberg and Feinstein to tell me what I need to protect myself. They have armed guards. I only have "armed" me.
