Hey everyone, hope you are doing well.
I want to address gun owners in the community with this post. I'm on the fence about buying a handgun. I'm not exactly enthusiastic about it; I'm actually a little apprehensive. The main reason, the only reason, I would buy one is for self-defense. I've never been a gun enthusiast, never grew up around them, although I have relatives and friends who do own them.
So, I'd like to throw out a set of questions to you, and get some feedback from gun owners here:
Why do you own weapons? Is it for self-defense, as a hobby, or for other reasons?
Did you grow up with them, or did you come into gun ownership rather recently?
What would you say to someone who's on the fence about owning a handgun? Do you think it's okay to decide against it, or do you think it's a necessity (especially now)?
I am thankful for my Heavenly Father and for everything that he does for me. I am thankful for Jesus Christ, for his atonement and mercy. For His Gospel. For the scriptures, prayer, a living prophet.
I am thankful to live in this wonderful country with its inspired Constitution.
I am thankful that families can be together forever and for temples.
I am thankful for all you awesome people and for your kindness and friendship, even though we haven't met in person.
Happy Thanksgiving to you all! #givethanks
