Obviously, since this is an issue of personal choice there will be differing opinions of this so I will state my personal choice and sign off for the day because I have a life to live...in regard to self defense and the defense of others. If my death would save others then so be it but if I know that by my death would allow harm to continue to others than I choose to make myself more of a target and try to stop it...as a man, husband, father, member of church and community.

Seems like alcohol is much more dangerous but I still think we all have the right to buy alcohol. I also believe marijuana should be legalized.
