    My house has 3 layers of defense, and if they can get past them, then I'll have to settle for my Ka-Bar collection. Most people can't hit what they aim at anyway.

    Again, I don't begrudge your choices, lighten up on mine.

    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 fare 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.
    I have no fear. Its called precaution. Just like keeping a fire extinguisher in my home or jumper cables in my car. You hope you never need them, but you really wish you did if you ever do.
    And lots of people die violent deaths at the hands criminals. And criminals will not care about your "outlook" on things.

    I lean other and have a dog, and video recorder-monitor, two deadbolts on the doors, and a loaded Mossberg 12 gauge w/000 buckshot & slugs next to our bed @ night.
    You're lacking at some level for protection-preservation.

    Worst case scenario comes and you may end up with a knife in a gun fight.

    Every time you respond with "what if.........." in defense of someone saying they don't own/want/need a gun, you're showing fear.

    What if you get a flat tire on your way home. You have a spare? Well you must be showing "fear" of a flat.
    The only thing I fear is my not being able to defend home and family at the drop of the hat in a worse case scenario. That kind of fear is a good fear. It shows I give a damn about my home and family and am willing to do whatever whenever to protect them. Anything else is for men that have no balls to do so and are worthless husbands and fathers.

    45 in headboard cond 2 with a 150 lumen flashlight that has a strobe feature (amazingly stunning if you are not prepared for it), long barrel AK clone in bedroom con 2, mosberg pump with #4 in living room for 4 footed varmints.

    The rest unloaded and in the closet that stores my hunting/shooting clothes.

    EDIT: I'm interested in how your politics relates to this decision too.
    I don't keep a gun and I see no need to. If I lived out in the country I would...but there's no need to where I'm at.
