In this crazy, twisted world we live in, it seems like we can never be too careful when it comes to our family's safety. Many women have taken the step to purchase weapons just in case. I always have my pink taser on hand in my purse for easy access when the kids and I are out. Who has a weapon for protection? What kind? Let's see pics!

We have several rifles around our house. My one SIL has a knife and sword collection in her bedroom and my one BIL has his gun collection scattered through out his house. All able to use when needed. Don't have any photos though.

I'm getting my concealed weapons permit in January.

My children are the source of my strength, frustration, happiness, insanity, sanity, irritability.  They are the definition of unconditional love.

Maybe if I lived in the forest I might feel the need, but I live in a city. I feel uncomfortable around guns so no, I don't want one.

I would never touch a gun, but I still have a taser. Have you thought of getting one?

I guess I could, but I've never felt like I needed something. I'm 41 years old and I just don't feel that unsafe to start arming myself with anything at this point. Maybe it's naive, but I don't feel uncomfortable. I don't really have unsafe behaviors, I live in a nice part of town and while I work in the hood, there's a security guard that sees people out to their cars. I've honestly never felt threatened by people. My whole town overall has a high crime rate, but for whatever reason, it's not what I think about every day. And my little corner if the city is pretty safe.
