I am a strong proponent of the right to bear arms. Living in a small community with some people who violently dislike some of the legal cases I have handled for clients over the years, I have come to realize I need to be able to protect myself. If I called 911 from my house in the middle of the night, it is unlikely that any help would arrive for more than an hour. I have a shot gun that I keep handy. At the same time I also realize that there are people who should not be allowed to have guns such as convicted felons and others who have been legally found to have violent tendencies.
