Gun ownership in America
Why I own a gun...
- dsashin, CNN iReport producer
I'm a former Police Officer and can tell you from experiences that there are a lot of people out there that want to pray on the weak and defenseless. The criminal element loves gun control and knows when and where guns are allowed. (Some are very smart) I own and carry a gun to protect my family friends and if necessary citizens that may need help from criminals that have no regard for human life. I'm not out looking for trouble but if trouble shows up I want to be prepared.
Lets keep in mind that its the everyday citizen first on scene 98% of the time not the Police.
