I'm sick of all these pansies whining and crying about guns. Guns nowadays are not just made to kill, they were before. In America, guns are now hobbies, and protection weapons mostly. One of the main arguments from the Liberal pansies are that too many children are killed every year by accidental shootings from a weapon inside a house. You know what? That's the parents' fault, and nothing else. If you keep a firearm in your house, you lock it up, you make it impossible for your child to get it. Putting it in a box on top of a shelf doesn't count. Kids can climb things, believe it or not. Simple as that.
Also, there is still crime in America. Therefore, a right to protect yourself should not only be necessary, but simple common sense.
A year and a half ago, someone broke into my house at 2:30am. My wife heard the window break and woke me up. Fortunetly, I sleep less than 10ft away from a locked-up 12-gauge shotgun. While my wife called the police and went to get my child in the next room, I got my gun out and ready. Then the robber proceeded upstairs. As he got to the top, he was surprised to see the big barrel of a 12-gauge shotgun suddenly appear between his 2 eyes. I told him EXACTLY this:
"If you move, I will kill you you son of a bitch."
He stood frozen, and I kept him at gunpoint until the police arrived. They searched and cuffed him, he had an old pistol in his pocket, that he could've used to hurt my family. If I didn't have my gun, the situation could've been very different, now couldn't it?
When I was 13, I was staying at my grandparents' house for the Christmas holiday, while my parents when on a special trip together. 2 guys broke into the house in the middle of the night, my grandfather took me into his bedroom, and got his rifle. He then confronted the guys with his gun, one of them pulled out a knife, and he shot and killed him in front of my eyes. The other one fell to the ground crying "Don't shoot me man!".
That's when I learned my lesson.
Don't take things for granted people, one of those things being your safety. Some people learn this the hard way.
Some people are like slinkies - not good for anything, but they bring a smile to your face when pushed down the stairs
