 No, I have no need for a gun.

So you'll shoot other drivers that follow you? Think of the multitude of accidents and injuries/deaths that would come of that.

You should only carry a gun if you are willing to kill someone.

Quoting Necie72:

no, but seriously considered purchasing when i lived in miami.  i was followed TWICE while driving on I95.  the first time was some psycho in a van.  he changed lanes every time i did and i started changing for no reason to make sure he was/wasn't following me...  i waited til the last minute to take an exit and he actually looked at me when i did, so i wasn't imagining it.  the second time there were 3 guys in a car.  the passenger was telling me to give him my number.  when i ignored them, they started following...  until i called a friend on my cell and turned in the direction of the police department...  now that i have a little one i won't feel good about having one in the house.  i could be licensed to carry in the car, but wouldn't want it to end up in the wrong hands that way either.  also, soooo much responsibility comes behind using one...  my uncle showed me the ones that he and my aunt have.  he was going to take me to get my license and to buy one.  he told me if i ever used it, i had to be willing to kill because the last thing you want on earth is an enemy that you've shot.

UM, NOOOO!!!!  ?????????????????????  If they follow me to my house or wherever I'm going and pose a threat, then yes.  A psycho looking guy in a van who keeps following you...  Wouldn't you find that weird???  Three men in a car who start following you and yelling...  Wouldn't you feel threatened??  I wouldn't just go shooting tailgaters or something dumb...  Boy did you misinterpret that!

A psycho looking guy in a van who keeps following you...  Wouldn't you find that weird???  Weird yes, but threatening? No. You shouldn't shoot for weirdness.  Three men in a car who start following you and yelling...  Wouldn't you feel threatened??  No, I'm not paranoid. People are weird, and do weird things. I wouldn't just go shooting tailgaters or something dumb...  Boy did you misinterpret that!

What did I misinterpret?
