Tell that to the 12 dead people from the Aurora CO Theater shooting.
Besides its not just people "going postal." There are armed robberies and home invasions in my city. Even the occasional car-jacking. When my baby girl was six months old a creep broke in in my wife at 4:39 PM in the afternoon.
My wife has a Walther PPKS (.380)
Not at least having a gun for home defense is silly if not downright stupid. I don't carry at work, but my vehicle makes a nice "rolling holster."
When not at work,, I carry.
Also as you approach retirement you appear to he be an easier victim to criminals. I won't be.
