I will never understand America’s obsession with vigilantism and assault rifles asameans of self defense. fightback, what kind of life do you lead that you fear “thugs” coming to your door with M16s? What rational person has this fear? And yet it seems that you’reaperson who ownsagun (or several guns). Thank godIdon’t live in America, the possibility thatIlived in the same area as you and others like you would be enough to make me paranoid. No wonder there’s so much gun violence in the US, it’s clearly endemic thanks to an insane circle of paranoia and unreasonable, irrational people who own (and are prepared to use) guns.
