The other, of course, involves orcs.... John Rogers

    I have the mindset, the means, and (hopefully) the ability to defend myself and I will certainly try. I am not going to 'wait and see' what they have planned. That is the last resort of an unprepared person with no options and the mindset of a victim.
    I have no problem with that, but I am not buying a gun to prepare for an event that is so unlikely to happen. My money and time (and most people's) is better used preparing for other risks that are much more likely to happen.

    you are home asleep in bed, armed men are in your home. that pretty much defines "confronted" to me.

    I am sure you will tell me how I am going to kill my family or get them killed and all that.
    Going off of how Ive seen you respond in multiple threads? Yes. I think you are the type of person who would recklessly do something that will cause undue death.

    being a foundering father does not make one a saint.....however writing a document, debating the document, assembling the document , creating more work on what the document says.......does make one an authority on that document!
