Who said anything about minimizing personal risk being the only goal? I certanly didn't. What I did say was that if personal safety is something you care about arming yourself isn't as smart as reducing the need for arming yourself.

I find the idea that access to guns is an essential freedom is one of the weirdest ideas to come out of the states (because most pepole I've encountered who believes it are Americans). What is it guns bring into my life that makes them essential?
