Remember this post? And remember the last sentence in that post?

I would rather be shot down by a robber than be in a situation where I'm exchanging gunfire with a robber.
Well it looks like my extreme pacifism is not only morally excellent but also has logic on its side.
ScienceDaily (Sep. 30, 2009) — In a first-of its-kind study, epidemiologists at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine found that, on average, guns did not protect those who possessed them from being shot in an assault. The study estimated that people with a gun were 4.5 times more likely to be shot in an assault than those not possessing a gun.
Over four fucking times!
What Penn researchers found was alarming — almost five Philadelphians were shot every day over the course of the study and about 1 of these 5 people died. The research team concluded that, although successful defensive gun uses are possible and do occur each year, the chances of success are low.

Owning a gun is owning a stupidity.
