    I have to keep mine farther away in the closet. I've been known to sleep walk. I doubt that I would sleep shoot, but I'm not taking any chances.

    Yea, sure Chuck. This whole thread and forum is agenda driven. Get used to it.

    There are, but I wouldn't recommend them. Especially against someone with a gun.

    I lean right, but there is no gun beside my bed. I do have several in my house though.

    I have too many children and children's friends coming over to keep any kind of fire arm loaded and readily available. It will take me a few minutes to get the pistol, unlock it and then load it, but I can accept the delay.

    Names not Chuck. Agenda is one thing, asserting that I'm a "volunteer victim" because I choose other methods of self defense is being belligerent. I don't object to your choices, so keep off mine.

    Re: Do you keep a gun by your bed?

    As far as which way I lean, right or left, I dunno. Ask different people here and you'll get different opinions. It depends on the issue I guess.

    I always keep my guns locked away in safes lately. My 13 year old niece and her mischievous tweenaged friends seem to be hanging around here all the time ever since I got a new 60 inch plasma HDTV and subscribed to Netflix. I'd hate to accidentally leave a gun laying around somewhere and one of them get a hold of it.

    I'm not really worried about anyone breaking in at night because this house is very secure. Heavily reinforced solid steel doors & frames. 1st floor windows are so high off the ground that you would need a ladder to get in them. And the windows are 1/2 inch thick Lexan with good locks and reinforced window frames. I guarantee you couldn't shatter them with a baseball bat. All doors and windows have loud alarms.

    If someone tries to break in they are going to wake me up for sure. And they might even get in. But it would take them so long to get in that I would have plenty of time to go get a gun. Or alternatively, boil some oil and throw it at them.

    So much fear. So scared.

    What if what if what if....

    Not everybody wants/needs/chooses to live in constant fear.

    Plenty of people live in very low crime-rate areas.

    Simply not living in constant fear of the ultimate "what if" scenario (when those scenarios are few and far between in many places) is not "volunteering to be a victim".

    It's simply living life with a different outlook. And that outlook isn't always pathetically ignorant, just in case that's the direction you care to take after reading this.

    Lots of people live happy, safe, and violent-crime free lives, and die of old age in comfort and warm surroundings without ever having to need a gun for protection.
