I would not like to live in a country where you felt the need to have a gun to protect yourself like this.
Think about it for a second – where would you keep the gun in the house for a start? In the bedroom, in the kitchen or the living room perhaps? But if someone kicked in my door and I was in a different room to where the gun was kept, I wouldn’t get a chance to get to it on time, so therefore, the only real safe place to keep it would be in a holster which I wore all of the time, or under my pillow as I slept.
So now, everyone is walking around their homes with a gun hanging off them!
