    Only sort of. When I did live in an area with them, the lights were always off, the shades closed, and everything about the place said "Not Open for Business" on that evening each year. We're now inside the security door of a condo building where we (33 & 39 years old) are the youngest people in the building, so that's not an issue.

It blends in nicely with the exotic wood staffs there. Its a bit more flexible to use and is not revealed to be a lethal weapon until its lethality is needed.
    Very nice.

    what if it's just a pajamagram?

It's short enough to be able to work in close quarters but long enough to give a significant reach advantage.
    The broad sword wasn't designed for use in confined spaces. A short-sword is a better option.

    Oh you're paranoia and distrust of people is not news to me. There is a difference between situational awareness and answering your front door pointing a weapon or brandishing a sword. it is a good think you live locked away, I mean in a secure facility...

    Depending on the layout of the home, you don't know who's on the other side of the door until you open it.

    Also, how do we know he pointed the gun at all? Maybe he was just holding it and the girl's father is a rabid anti-gunner willing to file a false report to smear gun owners. This is CA after all, they would outright ban guns if they could, stricter than Canada.

    We don't know that a gun was pointed. There's no evidence. It's hearsay.

    Did I reference the incident in question? Making a general observation.
