I’m not gonna “Lend you a gun” just because some people are rioting 30 miles away.
A Gun is not a talisman. It won’t protect you just by being there.
You have no idea how to use one. Never learned how to safely use one, be it a pistol or a rifle or shotgun.
You have no idea how to use one safely.
You have no clue as to when you can and cannot use one to protect your home, you family or yourself.
And, honestly, you are likely to hesitate and have it taken away from you. You’d be likely to brandish it to scare people away but not use it when brandishing didn’t scare them off.
So no, I won’t lend you a firearm, of any kind.
