There are plenty of benefits to owning a firearm, man. Contrary to what society, the media, and misogynistic assholes say, it’s even more beneficial for women than a man, actually. Why? Men are almost always the attacker and a female, almost always the victim. The difference in strength is staggeringly different between a male attacker and female victim than a male attack and male victim. Owning a firearm would ward off a great deal of unwarranted attackers, rapists, and murderers - more so than a knife. How so? Firearms allow you to scare off your attackers with several yards between you two. A knife means you have to be in close quarters with them. It also increase the odds of you getting stabbed or slashed. Just last year, there were several cases of men breaking into homes with mothers and children alone in the house. If they didn’t fire against their multiple attackers, they could be dead. Instead, everyone walked away alive. They’re alive because of that firearm. If they had a knife, I assure you, it’d be different. Knives don’t work against multiple attackers very well either. If I’m attacked, I sure as hell don’t want this fair fight you’re thinking of. And, that’s the point of a gun. It’s a last resort line of defense, but a line of defense nonetheless.
Still don’t believe me?
Look up the LA Riots in 1992. In case you weren’t alive (I was born less than a year later) or are unaware, the LA Riots were 6 days of looting, arson, and rioting that began on April 29, 1992. (I believe it was a Wednesday).The police hung up on people who called 911 and ran away from helping those in need during those 6 days. Crazy, right? They left the citizens to defend themselves. Those with guns were able to fire warning shots into the air and down the street to ward off looters. Koreans stood on their rooftops and did so in order to protect their families and lives from said looters. Those without guns were dragged into the street, beaten, stabbed, and murdered because they were defenseless. Now I know that people are saying, “Oh, well the National Guard fixed everything.” But, they didn’t arrive until day three. If we didn’t own guns to defend ourselves, there would be more than 2,000 injured and 53 dead. Guaranteed.
If they impose stricter gun control laws, gun violence will go up because it’ll be taking firearms away from law abiding citizens. Violent crime and gun violence will both escalate and more innocent people will get hurt. Hope this helps you see that we’re not all bad. People need to realize that law abiding gun owners want the same thing as gun grabbers: safety and less violence. If you don’t want a gun or don’t like them, that’s fine. You don’t have to own one. No one said you had to own one. Don’t like ‘em, don’t get ‘em. But, don’t even think about trying to take my right to own one away. I’m determined to maintain the ability to protect and defend those I love.
Have a nice day!
