Am I Paranoid?

Then said He unto them, "But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his garment, and buy one." (Luke 22:36)

I've read reports about the increase in violent/deadly home invasions, and I keep a firearm on my person or within reach when I'm inside my home or in the yard. Does this make me paranoid?

If you've heard about pedestrians struck by motor vehicles, so you look both ways before crossing the street, does that make you paranoid?

If you put poisonous chemicals out of the reach of your children, does that make you paranoid?

If you have insurance against sickness and injury, fire, flood and tornado, does that make you paranoid?

If you cook meat so that you don't get food poisoning, does that make you paranoid?

If you take rational precautions against any other potential threat, society at large sees you as responsible rather than paranoid. The only exception? When you arm yourself against potential violence.

The real question: Who is being irrational, here?
