I useta carry a gun on my person.

Years ago i worked the night shift, coming home after midnight, to an empty house alone.

I didn't buy the gun for this ... i bought the gun to kill the next man that tried to take my cat ... but that's another story.

I already owned the gun, and when i started working night shifts, i had another use for it. Every night i'd get out of the car, with it in my hand and loaded. I'd walk through the house, making sure that everything was as it should be, before locking the door behind me and putting it away.

I didn't live in a terribly bad area of town or anything, it was just the idea that i was a woman, coming home alone, to an empty house, and would be at a great disadvantage if a man was inside waiting. The gun seemed to even the playing field some, should there be a burglar inside or lurking in the bushes. There never was. I'm in the same house now, and have never been burglarized. In spite of this, i obviously felt the need for these preventative measures at the time.

It did begin to get a bit taxing, always pulling out this 38 before going into the house at night. Because nothing ever happened, i even got lax about it. I eventually put in an alarm system, that gave me to know upon entry into the house, if someone had been or was inside.

So i didn't need to carry the gun out of the house anymore.

I have more gun stories, including the one briefly mentioned above, that prompted me to buy my first one.

Great topic. Thanks for starting it Brother Kemetstry.

Kemetstry ... this thread reminds me of author Kenneth V. F. Blanchard, Black Man With a Gun.

He is a Member here, posted once, and visited with us in chat. He talked about the importance of proper gun ownership, and how most Black People get in trouble with guns, because we're not aware of the laws surrounding them. He is on a mission to help Black People know, even striving to become the first Black President of the NRA ... if no mistake ... i believe he told us that when he was here.

Of course i invited him to host a class with us, and he said he'd consider it.

Just sharing.

:heart:

I think everyone should know about the local gun laws in their state. They should also apply for a CCW. :coffee: There is nothing wrong with being prepared for trouble. Some know their personalities are such that they shouldnt have a gun. :explode: But knowing is twice the battle. I hope you can get him to at least write regular articles on gun ownership and safety :welldone:

You should post to his guestbook, asking him to come and speak with us here at destee. This way he knows it's more than just me, that is interested in the information he has to share ... :wink:
