The right of self-defense is fundamental in Anglo-Saxon law? In case someone has not noticed, we are not living in an Anglo-Saxon country.
That being said, we would still like to have a firearm for protection in our home. Since there are two of us, having one weapon detained by the police would still leave us with protection. We have no reason to carry concealed weapons as we make it a rule not to venture into areas that are considered unsafe – certainly not at night. If permanent residency is required, and we need a form from the U.S., so be it.
As to allowing government officials to have handguns without showing competence, well, they didn’t have to demonstrate competence to get elected . . . . (just joking. Please don’t send OIJ to my casa).
