2 questions for those prone to calling gun owners "Delicate Flowers". [View all]

First, some background:

I live 1.5 miles as the crow flies (or as a man might walk) from the place where Murderin' Christopher Dorner burned his truck yesterday. I live in an area of The City of Big Bear Lake known as "Red Ant Hill". This subdivision has maybe 300 houses, and I'd say 40 of them are occupied full-time. If someone was looking to hide out overnight or for a few days, there are literally hundreds of houses here that could be used. I live at the very end of the only dead-end street on Red Ant Hill. There are no other full-timers within 10 doors in any direction except for at the bottom of my back yard. If Murderin' Christopher is as smart as everyone seems to think he is, and knows The City of Big Bear Lake well enough to find Forest Road 2N10 (where he burned his truck), he probably knows Red Ant Hill is the largest collection of vacation rentals in one place in the whole of Bear Valley.

Last night, I went to bed with my Glock 21 (.45 ACP) on the nightstand next to me. The mag was full and there was a round in the chamber.

Am I a "Delicate Flower" or paranoid in some way?

The Second Amendment gives me the right to do what I did last night. The gun is back in the safe now, because I'm pretty sure Murderin' Christopher is no longer in the vicinity. Does my statement about the Second Amendment make me inherently racist (and/or sexist, homophobic, white-supremacist)?
