    why is that? on this forum most people are far more set in their political views than those people who consider it more important to follow American Idol than say the control of the senate. People who are anti gun want to pretend its pro gun people who cause them to piss and moan about gun rights rather than admitting its their own fears or ignorance that led them to their hoplophobic positions

    I am a pro-Second Amendment Liberal but I personally do not have a gun. I just respect the right of others to have one if they want.

    No it's not, and no I don't. And statistically speaking, chances are much greater that a gun inside the house will be used against either people inside the house or their friends or acquaintances than that the gun will be used in self-defense in a robbery, home invasion, or assault.

    That, sir, is likely why homicide rates are significantly higher in gun-friendly states than in gun-unfriendly states. For instance, the number of homicides in NYC is roughly equal to the number of homicides in the entire state of Louisiana...but when one adds in the fact that NYC has almost twice the number of people Louisiana does, one realizes that Louisiana's homicide rate is almost twice that of oh-so-scary NYC.

    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....
    The list is longer, and proof of it, that crime is down because men like me have armed themselves against the scum of the world that wish to do us harm.

    My husband has a loaded pistol by our bed (and in other places), and I'm damn glad he does. He protects me & our kids. Not because of our political leanings though, it's because of sick bastards like those 2 monsters in CT who killed that mother & her 2 daughters. If those ****ers had broken in here and surprised him, they would have been surprised right back.

    I keep my gun on an upper shelf in my closet. My first go to weapon is my aluminum baseball bat to the kneecap. I wouldn't want to wake up disoriented and shoot my apartment complex maintenance man or super, doing some necessary repair, having used the master key to get in.

    I beg your pardon, but there is no such thing as a safe neighborhood.

    I wouldn't be able to sleep well if I knew someone else (other than a family member) had a key to my home. I'm too scary.
