What so many people who are either anti-guns for honest citizens, period, or, those who own gun but say, "Why carry a gun?? The odds are you'll never need it." I say, "Yes, the odds are I'll never need it. But.... if I or my family are ever attacked by a bad guy(s), then I am no longer part of the odds, I have suddenly become part of the statistics." Plus, if I knew the time and the place some cretin were going to attack me, I just wouldn't be there. As I'm neither clairvoyant nor prescient, I carry a firearm for self defense. L.W.
