I have accumulated a couple dozen guns over the years, have a concealed weapons permit, and carry regularly. I read the various gun magazines, and have become concerned about the legal implications of owning several guns in the event I ever have to use a gun to defend myself or some other innocent would-be victim. I have read of people in my shoes who have had all their guns confiscated and used to create a negative image of the poor guy who simply defended his life from an assailant. Gunwriter/police officer Mas Ayood has written several articles about the subject. Should I make an effort to trim my gun collection ("arsenal") down to a minimum? I have had seven instances over the years wher drawing a gun has saved my bacon, being fortunate enough to have the burglar or street assailant back down. Do people really go to prison when they legitimately defend their lives, simply because they own several guns?
