    as opposed to gun hating liberals telling her she doesn't need the same gun a cop has determined is the best for self defense?

    And yes, statistically, they are an excellent deterrent. Better than all others statistically.

    ...you are concerned for your family's safety, and you want a nice pet, too. Fortunately..., you can have the best of both worlds. I speak as a dog enthusiast, and as a police officer who specializes in Crime Prevention. ...Professional criminals dislike: 1. time 2. noise 3. light. [TIME:] Most thieves like to be into a house in less than 15 seconds; if a criminal needs more than that he probably won't break into your house. This tells us that good quality, re-enforced doors [and windows] with heavy duty locks are an answer. LIGHT: if you keep the area around your house lighted (sensor lights are good and inexpensive, too) this will help greatly. NOISE: ... [a small, alert dog], while not intimidating to most people, is a problem to a burglar - he does not want to hear that barking! So, you can improve your home security without adding a... [larger] dog.... BUT, like a lot of things, sometimes more is better, and in this case, having more physical security, more light or more noise is going to be in your favor.... Also, having a big dog on the property lets the pros know when they are looking for an easy mark that perhaps your house is not an easy mark.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    No, I think a shot gun is a much better deterrent. I think the sound of a gun being cocked is probably a GREAT deterrent. LOL. You're so naive.

    It seems by your response that your eyes and brain also dismiss the actual English language used in the Second Amendment in favor of what you want to believe.

    only when criminals think that dogs will alert an armed homeowner. dogs are incredibly easy to kill by armed people. knives, clubs, guns. ASP Batons are particularly nasty against all but the best trained attack dogs. A Randall Model One is absolutely brutal-I saw a guy attacked by a doper's big Dobie and he had a Randall. He literally filleted the dog in under three seconds

    When someone breaks your door in, they are ready for you and your little dog too. All it takes is a bullet to stop a dog dead.

    I just reject the silly attempts to justify the Democratic Party's attempts to harass law abiding gun owners with stuff that the founders would have hung people like Biden for

    I like using definitions that existed at the time, not the definitions you think will get your agenda completed.
