Who protects your family?

21 April 2013, 09:19

We as parents are the custodians of our families future and as earning money is important so is the safety and well-being of our family. There is not much point in doing one and neglecting the other. Both are equally important.

So it really becomes a question of how much time and thought is one willing to devote to each. When it is zero to safety there is as much a problem as there is when it is zero to income.

We each have to decide that question.

Is owning a gun looking after our families future or is there more to it?

Is owning a gun sufficient if we accept and support laws which increase the difficulty, add requirements, inconvenience, conditions, seek permission and allow government to remove our firearms any time it wants looking after our families future and safety?

If we support laws which make it expensive and difficult requiring the arbitrary decision of some civil servant who has no guidelines or policy that must be adhere to.

Can we accept a law that has absolutely no chance of increasing the safety of those it disarms or anyone else. Can we say I own a gun and this discharges us from any further duty to our families future well-being and safety? Do our families not deserve better from us? If we do not protect ourselves and our families who will?
