    EDIT: I'm interested in how your politics relates to this decision too.
    I answered lean right and keep a gun by my bed, but that only applied to when I lived in the US. I unfortunately had to sell it when I moved to the EUSSR.

    I used to always keep it right above my head behind my mattress. It was nice knowing that I could handle just about any situation that arises, instead of now where I just hope nobody wants to break in because if they do me and my family are ****ed. (Thanks Germany)

    can you deploy Rabid Alpacas as a first line of defense in your current domicile?

    Maybe that's not exactly how he is, but that's the way he presents himself on any gun topic where someone gives an honest and genuine answer to anything he doesn't agree with.

    It's that exact kind of aggressive extremism that pushes people away from the side you wish people to be on.

    Theoretically yes, but I have a 100 lb doberman that sleeps at my feet, so I hope that most invaders would rather just pick a neighbor that doesn't have a big dog.

    Threre are tons of options a home owner can employ for their home defense other than sleeping with a firearm...all ready to protect their home and family.

    I levels of defense to where someone is able to get past the first two, they are not going to catch me napping in my bed or empty handed.
    This is about when you are home asleep and in bed, not the other million things that could happen.

    On the other hand, compromising with the anti gun side is worthless. You have a point concerning CC because his posts sometimes attacks pro gun posters but you cannot support controls that target honest owners and claim to be pro gun

    Because you don't live in the fortress you say. Simple as that.

    Or men with half a brain. I know concrete guys that are full on crack heads.

    And we can agree to disagree too. Simple as that.

    No, you either support the 2A or you don't. Simple. IF you do not support the 2A then you don't support the Bill of Rights or the constitution.
    You are the type person that would make a great subject rather than citizen.
