We need to be able to protect our selves, like this 74 year old woman, who was getting robbed, went to get her pistol to defend her self aginst them. She stated "I reached over there and grabbed this gun. And when I swerved around, I pointed it at him and he ran." She starded to shoot her .38 caliber "I tried to kill him." She needed this right to be able to defend her self. If she didn't have this right to bear arms, she wouldn't be able to defend her self, and noone knows what would have of hapened to her.
