When I was ignorant about guns, I thought they were just terrible. Then in 2005 hurricane Katrina blew through the Gulf and decimated Louisiana. The government in Louisiana refused federal help to assist the citizens who were in dire need of food, water and shelter after being displaced from the rising waters. With the chaos of the storm came criminals who were looting and vandalizing people's homes and businesses. People hoarded into a stadium were desperate for supplies while they were being beaten and raped by criminals.
One Asian community decided to fight back as they held up on their roof tops, keeping the criminals at bay for THREE days before the government finally asked for federal help. It was mass mayhem and people who were left to their own devices were desperate and desperate people do desperate things.
It was then that I realized that our high and mighty government is not guaranteed to help us in the event of a catastrophe, so I only have myself to depend upon. I am on my own to protect my food supply, my water supply and above all, my family.
So, I went out and learned how to use a firearm. I took a NRA class and learned how to operate, clean and store a gun. I passed the class with a written test and a field shooting test. I submitted my certificate of completion of the gun course to my local police department, who fingerprinted me and began an FBI back ground check before I was issued my license to carry a weapon, for a fee.
I regularly target practice using other people's guns. I recently purchased my own gun. If I wish to purchase another gun, I should be able to do so as there is no real reason to prevent me from doing so. Remember, I followed all of the steps to legally own a gun. Although I do not partake in my right to carry a weapon, if I choose to do so, I may want to purchase another smaller weapon. There is no good reason for me not to be allowed to legally own more than one gun.
I have a Constitutional right to bear armS.
