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.
But you know I don't give a light, I'm gunna make out alright, I got a sweetheart hand to put a stop to all this b****in' and moanin'.
