My dear, I said nothing about drugs, legalizing them, or the usage rate. I am only referring to my right to own a gun. I have not and would not make any presumptions on anyone else's behaviors. I can only control my own. I know that as a single mother with a daughter living on our own, I want the ability to be able to protect her by any means necessary. I'm 5 foot even and 100lbs soaking wet. My bare hands aren't going to do much good against a full grown man much less two. I am thankful everyday that I live in a country where I have the choice to purchase the tools to be able to provide her with as much safety as possible.
