9. I know and have trained GLBTs who have been attacked

Gay bashing does not always happen in bad parts of town. Sometimes it even follows them home. Violent EXs who think they somehow own their partner is another. Again, not always in a bad neighborhood. These are often people for whom firearms are a last resort after multiple incidents. They are also those who would get rid of their firearm as soon as they feel they no longer need it, but certainly not today.

Until their needs are addressed, I am willing to actively support personal ownership of firearms, including handguns. The police are certainly not adequate and are at time part of the problem.

There is a sickness of violence infecting the nation and it is getting worse daily. Guns have always been with us, but this level of violence has not.
