Get back to me when the big bad government tries to take away your guns. I'll be right over here - with my head in the sand.
I take reasonable precautions every day. An AK isn't reasonable. You might feel safe with an AK, but it won't help if you aren't walking around with it in your hands 24/7. I'll take my chances with a couple of handguns. If that isn't enough to protect me, then I'll die knowing that I went down fighting. In the meantime, I'll spend my days being unafraid. I'd rather live a day without fear than a lifetime being terrified.
If you're afraid, you've already lost the battle.
