    ....that consumes so many of the hardcore gun rights activists. They live in a world I cannot relate to at all, and wouldn't want to. What a miserable, paranoid and fearful world it must be. I'm a young mother who has never and will never have the slightest desire to own a firearm of any kind, let alone an assault weapon. Despite a small number of instances where a "young mother" used a gun against an intruder....it's monumentally more dangerous to the family itself to have those guns in the house. I'm not sure if she's seen one too many Lifetime movies, but she's seriously out of touch with reality as well as the vast majority of women...or people for that matter. She lives in a world, self-created, where she feels she absolutely MUST own a gun...or 12...or a variety of assault weapons to defend her family against the certain evil lurking outside her door.

    What a silly bit of testimony....if she wants to live in a world of paranoia and live a life filled with fear...that's up to her. Hardcore gun fanatics often remind me of hardcore religious fanatics; they live in their own reality completely separate from facts, common sense and reason and have a fervor about their beliefs that is often disturbing.
