Seriously started when I was a kid, probably about 7 or 8, and my mom (who I was with in the inner city) nearly got assaulted/robbed by what looked to me like a homeless guy (I remember his raggedy clothes, hadn't shaved in a while, etc). Then again, these days kids think it's cool to look like that. Anyway, I never forgot that sense of vulnerability. Fast forward 10 or 11 years, got my first rifle, and 3 years after that my first pistol along with a permit to carry. Never going to be in a situation where my loved one's safety is in jeopardy cause I'm not armed (not saying 7 or 8 year olds should be allowed to carry guns, but you get the idea).
