O.K., you lot like to tell us what "elitists" we are about self-defense?
Can you tell us how much it will cost you to defend yourself if you are:
a) charged with a firearms offence?
b) civilly sued for use of a firearm?
Let's face it, you're walking around with a weapon. You're setting yourself up for criminal and civil penaties for the misuse of your firearm.
Let's face it, you are getting your share of misinformation from the internet by experts such as Greg--you're bound to screw up in some way.
Ignorantia legis neminem excusat!
