Me and a few friends were robbed at gun point one night in front of my friends house in a gated community. I realized safety isn't something someone else can provide you, even if they are responsible. I legitimately thought I was either going to watch my friends die that night, I was going to die, or at least one of us was going to get shot.

After that, around a year or so later, I was reading about the Washington Mall shooting and realized that the only way I could know for a fact that I had done everything to protect my family, myself, and/or the people around me in the event a situation such as these arose (again, in the case of the robbery) was to learn, train, and carry a firearm.
