What is sufficient reason to buy a gun?

I've never owned a gun. Never been very interested in them; didn't grow up around them. Picked up some gun knowledge by osmosis in the Navy, and shot enough to stay proficient.

I don't have any interest in hunting or target shooting, and I'm not a collector of anything.

Never wanted a gun for self-defense; there's nothing in my apartment worth killing anyone over.

But with the country circling the drain, and emboldened fascists running around, I don't know what to think.

I don't like the idea of having to use a gun, but the prospect of needing a gun and not having one seems...possible.

And personally, I live in a college town, where the liberals/leftists I know are more of the "write a strong letter to the paper" variety.

That's ultimately a personal decision. Are you comfortable having a gun around your home, and can you store it securely to keep small hands and/or sticky fingers off?
There's a lot made of the "lifestyle" of gun ownership, but it's a tool pure and simple. You can become giant nerds like us, or you can do some occasional training/range time (please do devote some time and money to training if you're getting a gun for self defense, and it isn't a one and done sort of thing) and not think about the gun the other 99% of your life.
IMO, if you don't actually want a gun, don't get one. If you want one, go for it. The chances of you ever actually needing it are very low. Even now.
