There are far better ways to protect your family than a gun. Get a life insurance policy.

I know you truly believe that you'll need to defend your family at gunpoint. You need to let that go. Statistically it's just not going to happen. I know it's boring, but if you want to protect your family, things like seatbelts, fire alarms, and life insurance are your best bet.

The reality is, you're probably going to die of heart disease or diabetes, or just old age and natural causes. I know it's not as cool-sounding as an armed-standoff, but it's still true.

If the topic of protecting your family comes up, a gun extremist will immediately imagine an armed intruder who has come to murder. That's not going to happen. It's rare enough that it's not something people need to worry about or make decisions based on.

If the topic of protecting your family comes up among people who actually interact and care for children each day, they think of things like using car seats, preventing hormones and dangerous chemicals in food, child-proofing the cleaning supplies, and schoolyard bullying.

Hundreds and hundreds of you have explained to me that a life insurance policy won't protect against an armed intruder. I never said it would. The thing you don't understand: There isn't going to be an armed intruder. That's just your paranoia.

A gun in the home is FAR more likely to kill or maim a household member than it is to protect them. Enjoy your daydreams about armed stand-offs. But that's all they are. Daydreams.

Right. Next time my stalker shows up at my house I'm going to flail my life insurance policy document at him. Thanks for the tip!!!

I don’t think I’ll ever need to use a firearm to protect myself, but I don’t really think I’ll need a fire extinguisher either. I’ll keep both on hand in case

That's cold. So I should give up my gun and get insurance so in case I get killed. But if I have a gun and kill the person first I'm there for my family. Guess which one I choose.

Um. A gun won’t help you kill cancer.
