frame of mind is an interesting thing . I come from a pioneer family , my grandmother and mother grew up on a ranch in rural AZ , both know how to shoot and were doing so at an early age . Its a very foreign mentality to us that anybody , man or woman ,would not see a firearm as a tool and something needed . Nothing to be feared . Thats why I look at modern society with disdain as cowards. Perhaps we have had it too easy for too long ? Philosophy is for those with too much idle time . Not wishing hardship on anybody , but too much prosperity and idle time , tends to make a society weak . if things get down and dirty , those that were against firearms , will be looking for one , as they will see the need for one…………..the hard way .. When riots were going on in Kalifrnia , remember the Korean business owners ? they were armed , and showed the rioters , they would not allow their property to be destroyed , the rioters left them alone ………..imagine that .
