As for my locked doors at night, I don't post a sign on the lawn that invites criminals in either, do you? No, you haven't been so bold as to come out and say that I shouldn't own a gun, but you have made it clear that you think that people that do are somehow flawed in their thinking, and less um, intelligent than yourself, to that I say blow it out your ..... When I get something wrong? Or when you disagree....
    J that makes no sense.

    And if I thought you shouldn't own one I would say so. I think real arrogance is when you think you can tell others what they really mean. It also isn't intelligence. I merely think many on your sure fear the world too much.

    Your last two sentences I assume refers to me pointing out you got it wrong again. You did, and your unwillingness to want to get it right is not my fault.

    Stats say they won't even approach your place with the dog.

    It's just a statistical observation. I noted there s nothing preventing you from having a gun. And I'm fine with that.

    Luckily, what I need doesn't depend on your opinion at all. Like the stupidass opinion that as long as you are sitting at home minding your own business, trouble won't come looking for you. You can choose to be as unprepared as you'd like. You don't get to choose for anyone else.

    Didn't say anything about opinion. There are likely objective measures. Living in fear is not really my way.

    Fear? Another pantload of nonsense. I carry a spare tire for my truck, not because I fear a flat tire, but to be prepared for that eventuality. I carry jumper cables, not because I fear a dead battery, but to have the resources I need to deal with that problem. I can keep going, but even a dullard should be able to get the point I'm making.

    Not quite the same thing. To be equal, you'd have to carry 20 spares. It's the overkill, the excessive need that suggests fear, not reasonable preparedness.

    So, the odds are better for you if you don't have one. You're free to have one, and maybe beat the odds. But you brought up the odds.
    I'm sorry, but this is simply not the case...

    Although I am curious how you came to this glaringly false belief?

    As for the holo holocaust and such, I'm not sure how to get across your mistaken impression. You have so much Wong. Normal Jewish citizens cod not have with stood the Germany army.
    No, the question was how many Swiss Jews died in the holocaust... The answer is 0. The nazis did not dare invade switzerland because the population was so well armed.

    And there was no real way Japan could have attacked us on our soil here in the states. How do I address the koolaid drinking your throwing out?
    Not quite, they did not dare invade because there would be a "rifle behind every blade of grass.".

    and your rape thing s just silly. I suggest nothing of the kind.
    That's what I said, but you're using the same type of mentality... You are using the victims and saying you should act due to bad examples when there are as many or more GOOD examples of responsible gun owners that protected themselves or their children because of their capacity to carry semiauto firearms.

    Most everyone is familiar with basic gun statistics. If you need me too google them for you I can when I get to the computer.

    And, no, you're making a huge leap concerning the Swiss, as you did the Japanese. You must really have bought into the propaganda.

    And no, the rape thing has nothing to do with my reasoning at all. It's a dodge on your part,and an unoriginal one at that.

    FAIL. You are quoting a widely discredited case study proven over and over to be false.
