having a gun does not make you a super hero. if you're going to be killed, you're going to be killed. the only difference is being around gun makes you more likely to be shot by one. your kids are less safe.
So from your stand point, if there were no firearms in the house, and a group of armed men forced entry, raped my wife, then murdered us, we are safer then if we have firearms to defend ourselves and actually have a chance of survival? I'm lost.
And no, I'm no superhero. But I will kill a piece of poo.
