I realize The Fall is only a TV show, however, I couldn't help but think of the post made a few weeks ago on this site about living in a society in which one felt they needed a gun for protection. While watching the show last night (season 1) I was thinking how helpless a person would be without a gun or the possibility of being able to have a gun (talking hand gun here) if they needed one. The nut job in he show is killing women just because it's fun for him. I have a friend who lived in Kansas in the area where the BTK killer was operating. He said that he and his family would come home each night with a pistol in hand and go through each room before settling down. This went on until the killer was caught. Why carry a gun? Because a cop is too heavy.
