    Glock 45 by the bed and a 12 gage beside the bedroom door. Everything else is in the safe, except when there's something around. Had a cougar sighted around here a while back, so some other stuff was out around the house for a while. My dogs protect me, and I protect them.

From the CDC (if you go therre you might have to set the parameters that are in the map below):

    And from Popular Science magazine, yes, gun laws ARE associated with lower gun death rates:

    Didja notice that on both maps, the states of New York and Illinois are WAY lower than what's found Down South? Why is that, guy?
    Read it and weep "guy".


    Safe college campuses have less crime. University of Puget Sound earns an overall crime rating of F+ when we compare reported on-campus, city, and regional crime against all other schools nationwide.

    If your house is secure there is no reason to sleep with a gun.

    Because locks have never been picked or defeated and no one has ever kicked a door in or window out.

    Slow to reload, slow rate of fire, heavy, and way to expensive.

    EDIT: I'm interested in how your politics relates to this decision too.
    WEIRD buggers you are! I'm glad your censors are going to chuck me out, the Zionist sods!

    I don't think anyone can kick in either of my steel entry doors. The frames are very solidly reinforced. And you cannot pick deadbolts that have no keyholes. As far as kicking in a window, my house sits pretty high up off the ground. Nobody can kick that high. And even if they could kick that high they are made of 1/2 inch Lexan with reinforced frames. Even a pro baseball player couldn't shatter them with a bat. And the windows and doors also have very loud alarms. If somebody tries to get in I will know it.

    The house is secure when I go to bed. I'm confident that nobody is getting in.
