The price to be paid to be armed and be able to defend you and your family is irrelevant. It must be paid, or circumvented. Family comes first!. Some states in the USA make it hard to do that in the most efficient of ways. I couldn't imagine having to take a psych eval to have weapons.
The boys and girls in the clique, the awful names that they stick, you're never gonna fit in much, kid. But if you're troubled and hurt, what you've got under your shirt, will make them pay for the things that they did.
