    If it's my child and my gun I'm not going to stop and ask you or anyone else for their opinion, so don't worry about it.

    Are you a parent?


    Not to be snarky, but if you are not, then you're just not going to understand.

    Seems to me that if someone snatches a parent's child, the kidnapper has done everything but put the parent's gun in his mouth. An enraged parent isn't likely to be thinking much about the kidnapper's rights in such a situation.

    Exactly. A kidnapped child is every parent's nightmare.

    I had an absolute horror about this when my son was young. The fear of death inherent to the human condition is trivial in comparison... having my child be missing and not knowing if he was alive or dead or being mistreated or abused or tortured would have destroyed me. I'd hate to tell you what I could do to a man who tried to kidnap my child, it would sound medieval.

    Would I shoot such a man? Yes. How many times? How many shells are in the shotgun? Anyone who broke into my home and tried to steal my child would never get a second chance at it.

    good thing nobody saying they should solely based on that reason.

    It's not a simple issue, there are many complications that I think require more consideration than they seem to receive.
    I think you missed Jerry's point

    This is the wrong thread to troll. Go be coy somewhere else.
