THANKS THIS IS GREAT

Same here! We've had attempted break-ins. It takes the cops a good bit to get here & I'm not going to wait for them to show up if someone breaks into my house. If they are breaking in it is sure that they are up to no good. Maybe they ARE just there to steal something. But the 2 guys that beat a fellow to death not far from us were just there to steal too. He didn't have a gun.
We could argue this point all year. We are probably going to have to just agree to disagree. The right to bear arms is one constitutional right that I hold dear. My opinion on that will never change. But I know that other people have the right to their own opinions. Hey, that is what makes life interesting & debate is always good. For myself bmyall, it is prudence. My dog would probably scare someone off before they ever got in, but I figure if they aren't afraid of  him then I would have little chance against them unarmed. So I choose to be armed!

They do happen. Albeit, very, very rarely.  Most shootings are linked to bikie gangs however, and they procure their weapons via the black market.

Yes - when you wrote that I googled it, and found a couple of incidents.  But certainly it's not the phenomenon here that it is in the US.

I'm actually less concerned about guns and gun control issues than I am about the need for personal protection. I can understand wanting to protect ones home and family. What I'm curious about is the need to carry weapons. Is it fear or prudence?

Fear and moral panic.  People have a propensity to believe that crime is becoming worse - you can find diatribes in Ancient Greek literature about youths in gangs with green capes and the waiting collapse of society, and the same rant about morals in the 1800s concerning children and the moral character of the younger generation.  People are all too ready to believe that they will be attacked, and while being in a low socio-economic area makes one more prone to either being a victim or a witness to a violent crime, the reality is that guns make people feel like they are doing something.  One could argue that the confidence it gives them is enough, since they won't actually use it.

But it still stands that crime in my town is -very- low, and its only been since the gun law was put into place.

I've heard about that law in that town - and crime is very low.  However, there was a study about that town in a sociological research journal, and it was found that most people *had* guns already, the decrease of the crime rates from the 70's generally (which was western world wide) and the rates fluctuate anyway.  And that there was no decrease attributed from the actual ordinance, but that crime rates were generally low and stayed consistently low.

But the law was, if my memory serves, passed in the 80s, when I was in high school or maybe even early college.  So anywhere from 80 to 86 or so.

Yep - the study I read was from 83.  Maybe I didn't write clearly enough - crime in the Western World universally went down from a height in the 1970s no matter what gun laws there were.  For example, crime plummeted in the 90s, but imprisonment skyrocketed.
