    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...
    that's a club

    Many people can activate that car alarm from their bedroom.
    Of course this works better if your car is not parked in a garage.

    Alarms sounding, lights flashing, and pissed off neighbors coming to see what's going on are a great way to scare off intruders.

    Also - I ALWAYS have my cell phone by my bed.
    Unfortunately, car alarms are so commonplace that a lot of people just get pissed off that the alarm is going off. And even IF someone calls the police...what is the average response time?

    I HOPE intruders would be scared off. But I wont trust my safety and well being to hope.

    There are many of us who feel that the Republican Party has left us, rather than us leaving the Republican Party.

    I think we could both agree the GOP has evolved a LOT in the last decade or so. Some welcome the change, others, not so much.

    I don't see much difference with the platform now compared to what Reagan ran on

    I do.

    Thirty-three years.

    There is one thing that is constant. That is change.

    I love Ronnie but America has changed. The GOP seems to have a hard time adapting to that.

    Often, I wonder if it's not so much the GOP policy, as it is those who support it, and the way they present their views. Today's FOXNews generation has a way of turning a lot of people off with their views and the way they present them. Many people do not want to be associated with or identified as those kind of people. I certainly don't.

    so what has changed that makes Reagan's position uncomfortable for you?

    and what have the dems changed

    I still see the same things

    1) more taxes on the rich
    2) more gun control
    3) more appeasement overseas


    I really don't get upset at talking heads who aren't articulate at presenting the limited government position

    I think people who are turned off by such things really aren't strong willed or committed to begin with

    You cannot think of any reasons that a gun in the house might be a bad idea in certain circumstance? Really?
    I was referring to the last sentence by Crue Cab.....I was not clear with the quote I guess. I was agreeing with voyager1 and condemning Crue Cab for his ignorance.

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.
    Course she can call Triple A, stay in her car, and let them handle the problem for her. She doesn't even need a spare, they will tow her 100 miles as part of hre membership. No fear required...

    Seems a growing list of men with your fear are in prison or standing trial as they let their fear over ride responsible actions and now are criminals.

    The willing to do whatever, whenever has been used to justify excessive force to outright ambush murder, so I'm of the opinion most who think anything else is 'no balls' or worthless are mainly attempting to justify their fears.

    Fearful troops try and work up their courage by beating their chests and shouting... confident troops quietly check their mags, grenades and water....

    Guys like Crue Cab are by far more destructive to gun rights platforms than helpful.
