that's a clubAs 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.
What about this...
