One of the social issues near and dear to my heart is the human right to effective self defense. In some states of the United States and in many countries, this basic right is denied honest law abiding people. Statistics can be skewed to present a case for or against the legal carry of concealed firearms by law abiding citizens, but one fact remains irrefutable.
The only effective means of self defense for the elderly, the weak, the crippled and the infirm, against armed thugs who would destroy or take their lives for twenty dollars, is a ready firearm, along with the training and the will to use it. There are times when preserving one's life requires lethal force. To deny free people that right is tyranny.
