Handguns and the economics of safety

Marketplace Contributor Jun 22, 2012

Marketplace Money host Tess Vigeland heads to the shooting range for this weekend’s show to learn about the cost of gun ownership and home safety (and takes on a zombie while she’s at it).

The cost of keeping yourself safe varies, of course, depending on what you feel is necessary to secure yourself and your property. So let us know, what does peace of mind cost you? How much do you spend on safety? Leave a comment.

Enjoy the video!
