    You don't need 911 when you have .357.

    I don't understand the question.

    Its logical that the lawmakers know as much as you and I , perhaps even more.
    In a normal world, yes - but it is clear that the overwhelming majority of politicians that want to pass stronger gun laws, and the lemmings...er...masses that support the passage of those laws, know next to nothing about them.

    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

You turn to see two black males, one wearing a white tank top and the other a blue polo shirt, entering your residence through the broken door.

    Do you:

    1.) Draw or grab a firearm that is immediately next to you
    2.) Grab a clubbing weapon that is immediately next to you (ex. Golf club, baseball bat, etc)
    3.) Grab a stabbing weapon that is immediately next to you (ex. Kitchen knife, pocket knife, etc)
    4.) Run to another room to grab a locked up or hidden firearm and confront the home invaders
    5.) Run to another room to grab a stabbing or clubbing weapon and confront the home invaders
    6.) Run to another room and attempt to hide while dialing 911
    7.) Run out the backdoor of the house and attempt to escape
    8.) Freeze like a deer in the headlights
    9.) Rush the bad guys barehanded
    10.) Other (explain)

    Im just a little curious to see how people would react in a situation where they presume themselves to be safe, yet are confronted by a sudden threat. Its easy to say, Itll never happen to me but what do we do if it does? The above situation is actually a direct description of a string of home invasions that have been occurring in my neck of the woods.

    It always helps to have a plan in place, so vote and then explain, please. Keep in mind, this is strictly YOUR reaction, not what you expect a family member or a pet to do, but what YOU will do.
