After a frightening security breach, actress Kelly Carlson knew she never wanted to feel uneasy about her personal safety ever again.

Carlson, who gained national fame starring on the hit show "Nip/Tuck," explained why she felt the need to arm herself on "Fox and Friends" today.

Carlson revealed that she purchased a gun for protection after multiple scary run-ins with stalkers.

"All my technology was compromised, I was ambushed in the car, you name it," Carlson said.

She added that her home's security cameras were turned off remotely and even her Medeco locks were bypassed.

Carlson said she recognizes that firearms are dangerous and are designed to kill, and gun ownership comes with a tremendous amount of responsibility.

How has Hollywood responded? Ainsley Earhardt asked.

"I don't care," Carlson said. "If there's a backlash, I don't see it."

Watch the "Fox and Friends" clip above and tune in to "NRA All Access" tonight at 7p ET on The Outdoor Channel to learn more about how Carlson turned a bad situation into a positive experience.
