77. You are absolutely correct

 

in stating that

As a marine, I'm sure you learned what a gun is actually designed to do


When I am wearing MY seatbelt, it is being worn to protect MY life.

When I am wearing MY life vest, it is being worn to protect MY life.

When I am carrying MY defensive firearm, it is being carried to protect MY life.

If attacked by a criminal or crazy; my weapons, including my guns, are designed to help me stop the attack and protect MY life. Whether or not the attacker(s) survive the encounter is irrelevant to MY defense.

Semper Fi,
