Carolyn Saul, Smith and Wesson .357 Magnum, and Bumper, 1993.

A lot of people say, 'How can you have a gun in your house? I could never have a gun in my house.' You can see it in them physically, I mean their body cringes and they recoil and try to not even think about a gun -- it's a frightening thought to a lot of people.

As to keeping the gun in the house loaded, I really am not uncomfortable with that at all. I would use my gun if somebody came into my house after me. I would have no qualms about using it because it's still a matter of my life or theirs. If somebody is trying to kill me and they happen to take my gun away from me and kill me, well so be it. I mean, if they were going to kill me anyway I'd rather at least have a chance to try to save myself.
