Sorry folks.  Her possessing the gun is what is causing all of this.  It acts like a catalyst, drawing moths to a flame.  Those young men she has shot and threatened to shoot are the victims of her dark, twisted sociopathetic persona.  She should be locked away - at least until she has received professional help for her bloodlust and able to rejoin society.  Remove her from the equation and these fine young men will surprise you.

You're just being willfully ignorant about guns.

Funny, when the guy who broke into my apartment pointed his gun at me and told me not to scream (I screamed my head off, natch), I didn't view it as a mere "tool."

You made a  CHOICE not to defend yourself with force. What happens from that point on is your responsibility.

I defended myself with what I had on hand: a small pot of boiling chicken soup (I was standing at the stove in the kitchen when the break-in occurred). The guy yelled and ran out of my apartment.

gja: Oh group up you horses ass. You do not win this one, little miss 'no guns'.

So as long as everybody keeps a pot of boiling chicken soup next to them at all times, they're good to go until they save up the money to move.

doglover: Lorelle: doglover: Oh heavens to mergatroid! Somebody broke into my home and pointed a gun at me 29 years ago! Oh the horror!

shiat happens. Get some therapy.

It's the fight or flight response, and you chose flight. There's another option. Squirrels flee from danger very successfully. But they live in constant terror and usually die in violence anyway. But skunks? Skunks own the forest. They, despite being walking snacks, have less stress than Willie Nelson three joints into breakfast. Why? Because of all the animals in the forest who fight, the skunk has the worst attack.

But this doesn't mean the skunk just walks around waiting for a chance to spray. They're actually just cool little guys who bumble through the forest looking for munchies and lady skunks. If they could, they'd go their whole life without spraying. But if push comes to shove, they can push back.

And that's really what weapons ownership is all about. You don't have a weapon because you want to use it, you have it because in the event you ever need it, you'll wish you had it. While you can jury rig a spear or sword out of household goods, handguns are probably a better choice. Much like the skunk, you keep it on the back burner. It doesn't define your existence, but if you ever need it it's there.

When one faces a serious threat to one's life, one has a tendency to remember it, even decades later. Therapy helps in the short-term, but the memory lasts forever. And yes, I did think about it yesterday, but I didn't spend the entire day dwelling on it.

And, as I mentioned above, I didn't flee (I couldn't--there was no way I could get to the door without going past him); I fought back with what was available.

I don't have a pet skunk, but there are several cans of chicken soup in my humble abode (among other, more dangerous things). :)

Honestly, I have it on good authority(my own) that scalds suck.

Like... really suck.

If they could make a boiling water super-soaker, that would be godawful scary but great for home defense.


Yeah, while you're at it you can chuck some paint cans on string at them, heat up doorknobs, and sic your tarantula at them. That will really show those Wet Bandits!

Hickory-smoked: ChaosStar: Hickory-smoked: Rational people can argue that many of the gun laws on the books are poorly written and arbitrarily enforced, I agree. The problem comes from irrational people who believe in every conspiracy theory and paranoid delusion they come across, which makes rational and pragmatic regulation impossible.

I don't think that's where the problem comes from.
I agree that irrational conspiracy theorists have a problem (or three), but I don't think that's the problem we're discussing here.

Hickory-smoked: Liberals are not trying to disarm you
 This is blatantly false.

You may be a Liberal, and you may not want to disarm me, but that doesn't change the fact that those who do want to disarm me are, for the most part, Liberals.
The buck doesn't just stop at Obama you know. Brady, Feinstein, Bloomberg... all want to disarm me and all are Liberals.

Do they, though?

Feinstein's Assault Weapon bill was already law from 1994 to 2004, and it didn't take away your weapons. Mayors Against Illegal Guns wanted to have expanded background checks on all firearms purchases, but not ban sales or confiscate weapons.

I have heard some people say it would be nice if it was possible to get rid of guns, but nobody thinks that's actually an option. Not any lawmakers, certainly. Nobody has seriously debated against the 2nd Amendment in decades. If the regulations actually being proposed are objectively bad ideas, they should be debated against on their own merits, but if you need to bring up the specter of disarmament by liberals totalitarians every time the subject of a shooting comes up, even in a thread where nobody is questioning the woman's right to shoot an intruder, then you're just indulging in a persecution complex.


So you're okay with voter I.D.s?

They aren't taking anybodies right to vote away but to hear the left tell it it's a vast conspiracy to take away the right to vote.

BayouOtter: LavenderWolf: BayouOtter: drew46n2: For every defensive gun use how many murders, suicides, "accidental discharges," or "found" gun incidents involving children are there?

55,000 Defensive Gun Uses per year using lowest, most conservative estimates
30,127=10,129 Firearm Murders + 19,392 Suicides + 606 Accidental Firearm deaths

Are these the numbers you wanted?

Those defensive gun uses per year are entirely full of shiat. 4.7 million defensive gun uses in one year, that's one in every 70 people using a firearm to defend themselves every year. 50,000 is high but a little more reasonable than those ridiculous multi-million per year numbers.

Do you have a particular empirical reason for doubting them, or just a 'gut feeling'? Maybe you have some stronger evidence and studies showing the numbers are much lower?

Until you do, the numbers stand on their own merits.

jayphat: Benevolent Misanthrope: jayphat: She really needs to put a sign out front.

"Number of Break-ins"
"Number of shiatheads I've shot dead"

I was thinking something on the order of little kill-markers - perhaps cartoon thieves - under the windows and beside the doors.

Like those stupid family stickers you see on minivans?


But with striped shirts and masks, holding little bags with dollar signs on them, perhaps.

I had to mark this as funny, it's so stupid it made me laugh.

lonerancher: I'm sorry, but if you break into my home I am not giving a warning. I have no idea what your intentions are and I am not going to risk my life to find out. I'm not going to give up the advantage of surprise and give away my position. Once I identify the person as someone that has no reason to be in the house, they are getting shot. It doesn't matter if they are armed or not. Just because they don't have a gun in their hand doesn't mean they don't have one in their waste band. Hell they could grab a lamp or many other household items and swing those as a weapon. If you aren't willing to risk your life, you should not break into someone's home. It just shouldn't be that hard to wrap your head around.

I agree. If you shout something at them, several things can happen, and all of them except their turning around and leaving is not in your favor. The first is that if they are armed, you are now in an even-up shoot out instead of having the drop on them. The second is that they become a moving target, much harder to hit. Why would you give up your advantage of surprise? The first sound they hear should be the gun going off.

Of course, I'm a southern country boy and the very idea of someone trying to break into my house doesn't mean danger; it means "hot damn, I get to shoot somebody!!!" Anyways it will never happen, nobody can get close to my house without the dogs howling for ten minutes.

Livinglush: caeroe: luniz5monody: There was another one similar to this just a few days ago...Detroit too. There's home security video of it, but this one involved 3 guys kicking in a back door and then running when the homeowner (also a woman) came out with a rifle.

Fortunately the three involved were caught, being that they shot at, but not hit (afaik). She had a rusted HiPoint carbine. They're ugly, and their handguns get a lot of crap online, but those rifles are well made. They're excellent home defense weapons imo, I want one myself for home and as a range toy.

Hi point pistols AND rifles are cheap and ugly as hell. They are also surprisingly accurate and well made, and dirt cheap


I'd buy one, but i'd keep saying 'fugging ugly' even on the forms and my background check...

One thing I've learned from this thread is thatconservatives have no idea how liberals in the real world feel about self-defense and responsible gun ownership. Here's a hint: We're not the stupid, pie-in-the-sky, la-di-dah caricatures Rush Limbaugh and Ted Nugent tell you we are.

Yes, the moral of the story is that guns and Detroit have been a spectacular success.

With what money?

Only two kinds of people live in Detroit anymore: those who want to move but can't afford it and those who want to move but really can't afford it.
