Question for People following the Gun Control Debate
OK, I have pretty much avoided this debate because I don't really like guns. I don't much care for hunting, and guns have always just kind of scared me. I'm just not comfortable with them.

My brother has a rifle and he let me shoot it at a target. I am actually a pretty good shot, surprisingly enough. A lot of my relatives have guns, etc. but I have just never been very interested.

Now, I just recently found out a local man I went to school with has been released from prion. He was always been a pervert and sex predator type of person from way back. He finally violently raped a woman in my town and was convicted and sent to prison.
He is now out and, to my surprise, living only about a mile down the street from me.

I have a slight history with this man from many years ago..when I was barely a teenager in school, and he was just a couple of years older than me..he was actually kinda cute back then and I sort of liked him and I thought vice versa..he pulled me aside one day and tried to grope me and stuff. I was still pretty innocent about things like that and stopped him, but he tried to hold me down, etc. Anyway, he scared me and I got away from him and I didn't get around him any more after that..but I didn't tell anyone either. I was embarrassed. But apparently, he became more and more violent through the years till he actually got caught for rape.

Now, I don't know if he remembers me or not, but we are bound to run into each other at some point. If he is still dangerous, I don't know. He is listed as violent in the local sex offender registry. I looked it up.

Here are my questions:
Should I keep a gun just in case this person (or maybe somebody else) should ever try to come in my home with bad intentions?
Should I be allowed to keep a gun at all?
Should I keep the gun loaded in a place I could get to it easily or not?
If you don't think people should keep guns, then what should I do to protect myself if this man should act again or something else should arise where someone entered my home?

Are there other effective legal alternatives that would work?? Pepper spray, stun gun, etc.???

I hear a lot of general debate about this, but here is a specific example I am wondering about..as of right now, I am a sitting duck if I run into him and he were to think something like ""well, there is a situation where I didn't finish the job..maybe I should pay her a visit""..Not that he would, but how do I know??

If they do take most guns within the next few years, what will be the solution for women against men who are violent sex predators?

Have questions like this been brought up while Washington has been debating this?? What has been their response??

I am just trying to decide how I feel about all of this since the debate has gotten so intense and laws are being passed. I don't want to spend the money to go buy a gun to only have it taken.

Anybody out there have words of wisdom???

ALWAYS remember, "When seconds count, the police are only minutes away"...

If you are concerned for your personal safety, DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT. A gun in an inanimate object that has been vilified by the Lame Stream Media to push their agenda (just happens to be the same one as their "friends" the Democrats). A gun won't help you unless you actually learn how to use it. If you get one, sign-up for and attend a class.

Re: Question for People following the Gun Control Debate
Nahhh. Just wait until he breaks in your door some night, then call the police.
They are excellent at taking statements, calling for ambulances, and protecting the rights of the criminal after he has raped you.

I mean, why would you want one of those dangerous, scary looking weapons in your house.

Re: Question for People following the Gun Control Debate
Your 2nd amendment is there for a reason. Use it or lose it.

Its your decision to make. Personally I had to give up my right for guns years ago now and i regret doing nothing to stop it. Everyone on the planet should have the right to lethal self defemse if required.

If someone comes at me with even a knife in the uk mow I ha e no defence available. None whatsoever since I am not alowed to carry anything that can be used for offensive and therefore defensive purposes.

The UK is now one of the most dangerous places to live in the world for honest and decent minded individuals.
