    If somebody breaks into your house, the odds are very good that they are in fact armed. I had that happen to me once. Hence, this is my boom stick:



    Well, not that particular one of course. But mine is the same model.

    I have survived 41 years without having to pull my gun but that doesn't mean I want to find myself in year 42 or 43 and need it and not have it.

    The simple reality is that 99.9% of gun owners never have to brandish their firearm in self-defense, but I can guarantee you that the .01% that had to are glad they had the right to do so.

    Odds are that anyone who breaks into your house will not be unarmed. If they are armed then it is my guess that while you are being compliant, watching them take your belongings or doing worse, you will be sitting there promising yourself that if you survive this you will be buying yourself a gun.

    Guns are like motorcycle helmets, you might never need it, but if you do, you better have it.

    its kind of funny that last statement was by someone who has Ben Roethlisberger in his signature


    on the subject I'm all fine for people having them at home to defend themselves but think those that are walking around with them on their hip are just looking ridiculous

    I guess you skipped over the link I posted earlier in this thread.

    Do you have any stats to back that up?

    I can't back up the 99.9% statement because there is no way to know what is in people's hearts and minds. I do however have an uncle that killed an intruder while the intruder was trying to kill a visitor at his house, and while he regrets taking a life he does not regret that his wife, himself and a family friend are alive because of his actions. After the incident he purchased a handgun for his wife in case he was ever not home.

    As for the "Odds are" statement, that is just logic. The idea that the majority of those breaking into houses will not be armed is neither commonly accepted nor logical.

    And yes, I read the article. My guess is that the father does not regret using his gun, he regrets killing his son. Had the bullet killed the intruder then I am sure he would be fine with it.

    To the first bolded part. The "majority" of break-ins are perpetrated by addicts and teenagers (at least in my neck of the woods, based on those that are caught) and they do not have weapons on them.

    To the second bolded part. You are not very good at guessing. To think anyone, after shooting their own son, would be "okay" with the choice to introduce a gun into the equation is assinine.
