    I always did like the snake charmer. Not much knock down power against a human being, but it could get a point across w/o having to kill. I like the idea of not killing another human, if a point can be made that we can if we really needed to.

    So true. I felt safe in my home until about 3 months ago when my house was burgalarized while I was at work. These are hard times we are living in. We must always be on guard.

    You roll the dice with yours and your family's lives. I wont. Funny thing is, is when it does happen to your types. Yall squeal the loudest and want more "laws" to protect you when you should have protected yourself.

    That, sir, is likely why homicide rates are significantly higher in gun-friendly states than in gun-unfriendly states. For instance, the number of homicides in NYC is roughly equal to the number of homicides in the entire state of Louisiana...but when one adds in the fact that NYC has almost twice the number of people Louisiana does, one realizes that Louisiana's homicide rate is almost twice that of oh-so-scary NYC.
    Considering the number of carry permits in TN runs about 468,000, and the overall gun related homicides in TN, and the number of crimes that involve fire arms runs about 20,000 (including assault) and I'd definitely call Tennessee a gun friendly state, I'd say your example may have been cherry picked.

    I feel perfectly protected. I have a .00005266% of being murdered. I have a better chance of dying from Kindey related diseases, or cancer, drowning, or dying from a car ancident. Ill take those odds.
