You need one to protect your family. You need one to protect yourself, and anyone who could come under harm's way.
I am going to need a gun. If I consider how many people I make mad, how many death threats I have gotten, and how absurdly weak I am, yeah I am going to need a gun. The alternative would be getting murdered.
I say yes. It's always necessary to defend against others who have guns.
For protection, a gun is best. I would most likely be unable to subdue someone, otherwise.
Yes, I need to be able to protect myself from criminals who may break into my house or assault me in the street. Additionally the right to a gun and the right to form a militia both help limit the power of the government.
Do you need life insurance? You don't plan on dying, but having a plan in case of an extreme scenario is a really really good idea.
yes you should because if somebody walked in your house you might need to bear arms to get them to leave or if they try to kill you your ready to defend yourself

Having used one in self defense (once in an attempted mugging where no shots were fired and once against a boar in the woods while I was dove hunting), yes I need one. I live in a pretty bad area due to lack of research of the area when I first moved to my home, and I don't feel safe without one. Coincidentally, there was a double homicide between two "groups" less than 1/4th mile from my house just last night, I would post the link to the news segment, but its 2 blocks from my house and you guys don't need to know where it is.
Protect self and family.
The riots in Baltimore and recent events should encourage people to purchase a weapon
If I want to go shooting then of course!
I'd recommend it because it's the most effective way to protect yourself and your family.
I want to be able to defend myself when there is an intruder in my home or someone gries to hurt me.
Yes. Having a gun negates the advantage that any criminals might otherwise have against me. A firearm is needed to shift that advantage in my favor.
It is because I need to protect myself from crazed criminals and other threats. Without a gun, I could easily be killed, 911 does nothing because the police cannot respond faster than an a person with a shotgun or small firearm can.
Do I need a gun? No. Do I want a gun? Yes. Will I get a gun? Yes. Will I try and keep my gun? Yes.
Probably because I live in a country like Canada, which isn't riddled with crime and murder, lol.
No, because I live in the UK and I don't need a gun to protect myself because no one else has guns either.
i dont need to escalate any violent situations so no i dont keep one around.
Well.... in my day (2001) WE HAD DIGITAL GUNS! RAAAAAAAAAAAAA!
No you do not. I've survived to this point without a gun, they are not necessary. They give many a sense of safety but they are not necessary. I personally would like to see the process of getting a gun made much more difficult so that we don't have all these shootings going on anymore. A gun shouldn't be used for shooting human beings unless you are threatened first.
Nobody really needs one. Millions of Americans get by without one.
I kinda want one though.
no way, the fact that many people think it's okay to have a gun is actually disgusting. Many may use it for self-defence in some cases but it still gives no human any right to take another persons life.
Of course not! you can be street savvy enough not to be mugged or to protect yourself. I'm not up for killing for protection personally
No, I'm a walrus
If no one has a gun, there's not much to protect yourself from because no one else has one.
I've lived my entire life without a gun. I don't need one and never will. It saddens me that others are in the position where they believe they do. America must be a really shitty country to be so afraid of not having a gun.
