    Owning a gun is a big responsibility. Some of us grew up learning about guns from a very young age. For those who didn’t it’s always a good idea to learn what you can. And you won’t always feel OK with “other forms of defense.” When you’re 70 years old and getting feeble is a heck of a time for your first lessons.
    In the US, states vary widely. In some states, you have to have something like IL’s FOID or MA’s FID. In most states, if you’re of age and not legally prohibited (see the BATFE form 4473), you can simply go into a shop, pick out what you want, hand over your driver’s license (picture ID) and credit card for payment, wait a few minutes for the background check, and take your gun home. My last purchase took about ten minutes. That “presumption of innocence” thing still applies in most of the US.

    You go to a gun show and buy one. Training and license are the money you give the seller. If he won’t sell to you, you pay someone else to buy it and give them some extra for their trouble. It is the American Way, God Save The NRA!!!!
