    Most gun haters are afraid to accept that duty and the risk of failure. They want to outsource that duty and that risk to the government and they don't want to be reminded of their failures by seeing other people who are armed, ready willing and prepared to defend themselves.

    Gun bans are often a case of cowards or the timid exorcising things that remind themselves of their own failings

    maybe so but what you have is extra time. so you have time to get the bren gun out, put the magazine of tracers in it. get behind some heavy cover and get ready to light up any asshole who manages to breach your outer perimeter

    Nice gun-you can sell that for about 1500 dollars and get yourself a SW 686 in the same caliber (uses the same speed loaders IIRC) and a smaller K frame you can carry with you

    Like most cement masons, I am a very strong individual. And I've also had a couple years of martial arts training too. Not as many years as my daughters who all started martial arts training when they were around 7 or 8 years old, but enough for a guy like me. Even though my daughters might be able to kick my ass.

    You cannot fix stupid so I see no point in going out of my way to condemn it in most cases. I usually just shake my head and take the, "But for the grace of God go I," approach.

    You may notice that I typically just ignore "certain posters," here at DP. Life is too short.

    Diplomacy is the art of saying 'nice doggy" until you can find a gun.

    So you live in a fortress? Sure you do. Everyone that says your same thing says that about their home. "cant get in my home". BS, I could get in your home in a heart beat.

    God don't care about your or your family's safety. That is your job.

    Spikes Tactical AR pistol with a double drum mag off a single point sling. That will stop the zombies. WHen it all goes down, .357 and .38 rounds will burn off in no time. .223/5.56 will be around for years.

    EDIT: I'm interested in how your politics relates to this decision too.
    You needed more options since many people lean neither left nor right. I picked leaning left because if I lean on a wall or whatever I like to keep my gun ( right ) hand unobstructed.

    I also picked that I keep no gun by my bed because I keep 3 guns by my bed.

    Your poll is too simplistic.
