I won't lie, I just don't understand a lot of my southern neighbors.

Feeling secure seems to be the main driving force behind all this ridiculous stockpiling of weapons. However, the NRA can wiggle all it wants, but as far as data go, more often than not, guns do not improve security. It is quite the opposite.

If firearms would indeed improve security, the most armed country in the world would also be the safest with the lowest homicide per capita...

It's not just the guns, because there are states and cities that have really stick gun laws (Chicago and California.) but still have big homicide rates, and other states (Such as Vermont.) that have very loose gun laws and very low homicide rates. It's more complicated than just guns being available. Also, for what it's worth, most gun deaths are not homicides.
