For worried family members, I thought I would clarify my current status as a gun owner (or not).
While I do staunchly support the rights of anyone to own a weapon and conceal such weapon per the 2nd Amendment, I do not currently own a handgun for my own personal use as a concealed carry weapon. Yes. I said handgun.
I do own a shotgun (okay...DH does) that he intends to use for hunting. I also have a FANTASTIC bbgun (okay...daughter does) that she doesn't use for hunting (unless you count used water bottles). :-)
Feel better, Nana & Gma & Gpa? Sorry. I should have warned you or posted this note BEFORE you began having nightmares of me "carrying" while out with our kids.
I am not saying that I will never own a handgun for my own personal use as a concealed carry weapon. I'm just saying I do not currently own one. I'll have my Kitchen Aid or Bosch mixer before I have that! So you can feel better for the time being.
I do own a mean can of mace that I carry on my purse, though. So dream away about THAT!
