DrewCurtisJr: Luse: Perhaps you missed the part where the robber shot at him, for daring to be inside his own home. I didn't know assault with a deadly weapon and attempted murder count as property crimes.Nope. Read the rest of the thread.But this "no duty to retreat" has been used to kill people over property
DrewCurtisJr: Frank N Stein: This is why these items are always within reach of me. Gotta be prepared for anything.I get the playboy and the n64 cartridge, but what's up with the claymore?
Nina_Hartley's_Ass: Everfearful: I respect differing viewpoints.Not a viewpoint.If the crooks just sat him down and held him at gunpoint it's a firearm fiesta for them and perhaps a severe beating or worse for him.Or is he going to outrun a bullet?
Frank N Stein: duenor: Plan, experiment, plan. Plan your home layout. Install alarms. Plan even for after the shooting.I do the same for car breakdowns, fires, earthquakes, medical emergencies, witnessing a crime.This is why these items are always within reach of me. Gotta be prepared for anything.[oi44.tinypic.com image 494x512]
Dow Jones and the Temple of DoomA gun nut that's in the closet? Why am I not surprised...
squibbits: LOL-ing at all the anti-gun ninnies that will try to poop on this most awesome story... but I have to admit that he should have had one closer at hand and injuring only one of them non-fatally was not the ideal outcome. There is a big difference between having guns and being prepared to use them in a surprise situation.
For ALL your varmint problems!
Marcus Aurelius: The .357 or the .45?
Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: A gun nut that's in the closet? Why am I not surprised...
Nina_Hartley's_Ass: And without the criminals' error those guns would have done our well-armed citizen no good whatsoever.
mr_a: Marcus Aurelius: I can picture this guy in his closet. You'd be paralyzed with indecision for at least a full minute. The .357 or the .45? The Remington pump or the double crow bar?It would depend.If the walls needed repaintig soon anyway, I'd go with the Remington. But if I just wanted to change out the carpet, than the .357. Even if the .45 is more powerful, .357 just sounds cooler.
