When You Shouldn't Own a Gun

The Armed Canadian has a post up on when you shouldn't own a gun.

I can't say I disagree with his logic.

A gun is not a magic talisman. It does not resolve any situation by its mere presence, in fact, it escalates situations. This story speaks to the self-defense mindset. Having the mindset of self defense will do more for you than replacing it with a gun. If you're not prepared to use your gun in a defense situation, don't pick it up.

If you don't have the mindset, you owe it to yourself and your loved ones to learn it.

I've said it before; buying a gun doesn't make you safe.
Learning how, when, and why to use it does.
