I can't imagine not having the right to have a gun to protect myself. DH and I are saving up now for a handgun. I do agree the security in our schools (well at least mine) sucks lol I don't know how many times I just walked into my high school and went wherever I wanted to go and find an old teacher or something. It's crazy.

My kids school has a camera apove the door where you need to buzz in. Once you are buzzed in (you have to state your buisness over the intercom) the main enterance opens up right at the principals office, where she is or someone is waiting for you. You need to sign in, full name and date etc.....if you are their to pick your kid up, someone goes and gets them for you, or walks you to them, whichever you prefer.



And we are a small place in northern Ontario and the worst we have here is drunk drivers and little punks robbing cars or houses. kwim?



I dont need a gun to protect myself and IRL I have never met anyone that lives here that feels they do too.

You would probably shit bricks if you lived in the US for a few months then.

I lived in NY for 4 months with family before. I know it was not long period. But I never felt any different there thant I do here. I was only 17 at the time, but I never felt the need to be protected or anything. Felt Like I was in Toronto just bigger. lol

I live just outside of the most dangerous city in America and I don't feel the need to own a gun to protect myself. I don't understand that mindset.

Yeah not very long. NY isn't that dangerous of a state. If anything, you should fear the cops more than the civilians.

I used to go to Detroit a lot. When visiting some family just on the other side (canada side) and her mom used to take us over and drop us off at the mall by ourselves we were like 10. lol And she would go and do who knows what. lol



We would rome around for hours by ourselves getting lost. lol

I don't live in a dangerous place but there are gang issues here and I'd rather have the gun and never use it than not have it and need it. Dh works 12 hr shifts (4pm-4am) so most nights it's just dd and I. I can kick some ass but I'm only 5 ft so it won't do much good against an almost 7 ft man.

Did you walk around 8 Mile? Or have you been to downtown DC at night? I'm glad they relaxed the restrictions in DC and I will likely be able to carry. I wouldn't want to walk alone in the Capitol Hill neighborhood or Anacostia without a gun.

I'm going to detriot sat for the footba game. I've never been to that side of the state but I never hear anything good about it so I'm nervous but hopefully it's not as bad as everyone says! Lol

Holland is not dangerous in the slightest. I don't like the idea of mutually assured destruction. If your gun and ammo are locked in separate safes, how are you going to have time to shoot the intruder? And then if the intruder is armed, what makes you think that you'd get the first shot? For me, I think it would be more reasonable to assume that if someone is entering my home, they are probably after my stuff, not necessarily with the intention of harming me or my family. They can have my stuff, I'd rather have my family.

Not necessarily. My ex-boyfriend's parents were both murdered in their home (his mother also raped) and the guy did not steal anything. He went in there with the intention of killing someone, anyone, that he could. He was a stranger.



My ex still hates himself for not having a gun in the house. He has to ask himself everyday what if.

You'll be fine there. Just don't head into the areas where there are houses for sale for less than $1000.
