Guns or no Guns

I'd love to hear your thoughts on the issue of having firearms in the home. Is there any policy on possesion of firearms by citizens for the purpose of protection?
My dad and my partner believe it is good to have a gun or two at home for protection. I've always objected to having firearms in the home until recently. Armed men of the underworld broke in to my house when my partner was not around leaving me and my 7 yr old daughter alone. Since it was hot, no public light supply and the generating set was broken down, I had practically nothing on. It was just God that helped me to wrap myself in the bedding before they finally broke down my front door (or should i say scattered my front door in pieces). All that was on my mind was God these men can carry everything as long as they don't rape or shoot us (God answered my prayers). I'm sure you've heard some horrendous things these men do to women and even small baby girls.
Only two of them had locally made pistols, imagine if I had some pump-action at home (by the way I'm usually very calm when faced with sudden problems/danger). I would have been sure to protect my child.  Cos the beating they gave her just to remove the gold from her ears still hurts me till today. She's the only thing my hubby and I cherish in this world.
So right now I'm seriously considering have a gun at home.

is it now ur eyes ar open................ i once discussed this issue wit a judge, he said he was goin to look at it but i don't think he has done n e tin on the matter...........

right now in Naija, its only a stupid handheld revolver u'll get a license for... u can't get n e license for an assault rifle and it hurts me so badly becuz robbers use assault refiles to rob and a handheld revolver is sh*t in comparison to these gunz

but the main issue now is who is eligible to handle this gunz so that they don't fall into the wrong hands.......

can u handle Mac 4 or an AK?Huh?Huh???
