Did you ever suppose that someone could buy a gun in the black market? A gun store is not the only way to purchase a weapon. When a larger person is attacking a smaller one, he counts on his strength to give him the advantage. A weapon can be the “great” equalizer. Most people who have guns only use them in legal ways and for self protection. For women at times, that may be the only way that they can protect themselves. No one should be subjected to a beating because they are too small and weak to protect themselves. Guns are frequently the last resort for someone.
