    They aren't. I have the same view on pretty much every kind of technology that politicians pretend to understand, especially nuclear power and the internet.

    If you'll actually read the whole post, you'll notice that this is a situation which actually happened. Shocking as it may seem, there are actually black people who commit crimes. It it not, in fact, a giant right-wing conspiracy.

    Oh, that's so true, isn't it?

    After all, we all know it's the NRA that causes crime

    They stole my paddle game the NRA did.... bastards! And my half box of fiddle-faddle.
    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.

    Clubbing weapon

    I don't really want to kill them with a gun. I figure if I sneak up on them with the club and take on of them out it is a fair fight. Then I still have the club and other guy doesn't.

    If I see them with a gun though I would take the gun.

    Re: Self defense: How prepared are you?

    My weapon of choice in this scenario would be my 12-guage, 00 buck. When I'm in my house I'm often at my desk, that face the front door. Shotgun's behind my chair.

    I'd stand and rack that **** really loud just to see their faces, then I'd try to apprehend them -- I'd put them on the floor right by the door and call the cops to come pick them up. If they bolted before I could detain them I would just let them go and call the cops. If they made any move toward me I'd be blasting mid-sections.

    Retired Military Here! No matter where I am in my house or Vehicle I am never more than 5 steps away from a loaded (All My kids are now Grown and Live else where) weapon. I intend to defend what is mine and protect those that fall under my protection very diligently!

    I grab my clubbing weapon and use it on the one that is not being savaged by my pit bull.
