In many ways, your emotional state might not be as important as your home state, to rephrase what you said. Here in MA, I am always on the verge of spending $400. per year to buy national insurance that helps pay your legal fees if you're forced to use a firearm in self defense. Aside from not wanting to spend the money, I have a sneaking suspicion that in this state, a DA would use my having purchased such insurance as "evidence" that I was planning to shoot someone. The perfect Catch-22 IMO.
