I've owned a firearm since the age of 5 along with 6 years in the Army. I have mixed race children so you can stick your KKK assumption up your 4th point of contact. I have a Constitutional right to bear arms the government does not give me this right nor can they take it away. You can depend on the police to protect you but you should know that the average response time is 11 minutes that can double in the large cities. Police aren't there to protect they investigate the aftermath. You can be a victim all you want but the majority of Americans don't want to be.
