    No you really don't. Just stupidity and hubris. Maybe enough drugs or peer pressure. But not balls. They assume the advantage. If they thought otherwise, they wouldn't do it.

    Someone posted a video a while back on DP -- of a guy who gave lessons in knife fighting...he was in the shadows of the video so you couldn't see his face. He drew his knife and stabbed three times so fast - up/down/sideways - that no one except a trained commando could even HOPE to walk away.

    What's the saying? Charge a gun/run from a knife?

    Nice how people start accusing you of something nefarious for expressing your opinion on a topic.

    I agree with one thing-discourage them before you have to shoot. Shooting is a messy business

    its hard to clean carpet up

    I never really got the stain out of my Yale varsity jacket after shooting that turd those many years ago
    I suspect it seems that way to you because you're still having that fantom argue with what I never said.

    I was talking about the dog.

    I agree with that last sentence. I posted a tip here a week or so ago that I saw on Facebook. Keep your car key fob in your bedroom. (Make sure that the alarm button will be heard by your car . . . even if it's in your garage.) If you hear an intruder, press the alarm button as a start. Lights and horn means there's probably an easier house around the corner. Great idea, I thought.

    Nite all. Nice diversion, but 5 am comes early.

    I find it is a usual SOP of the anti gun posters to try to take evasive positions and then claim that the most logical interpretation of what you said really wasn't what you said

    your post was hilarious-you don't need more rounds because its hard to hit a bad guy with a pistol

    last question of the night

    you have admitted you don't need a gun and don't carry one

    where do you get off trying to argue about gun issues with those of us who do and have clearly demonstrated we really understand the issue?

    Good night

    That is like saying a man that defends his family would never do so if he thought he could die. As it is with the robber it is with the protector of property and life.

    Courage is the discovery that you may not win, and trying when you know you can lose.

    There is nothing about having courage that calls for your tasks to be noble or worth doing. You simply must have the foresight to know the danger and have the bravery to face it.

    Why? The anti-gun side won't.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
