    Firearms in your home?

    With all the recent debate about firearms in our country, I was curious about something.

    How many guns do you have in your home?

    Me - I currently own four.

    Two rifles (.30-30 & .22)
    One shotgun (12 gauge pump)
    One handgun (.45)


    ... & I've been saving up for a nice .357 magnum revolver.


    What say you?

    I have a S&W 659. Looks exactly like the one pictured below other than my trigger guard is rounded and not pointed like this one.

    but when the trumpets blew again and the knights charged, the name they cried was "Stannis! Stannis! STANNIS!"

    Mossberg 500 pistol grip with an ATI folding stock. My favorite.

    22 pistol and rifle. I try to commonize ammo.

    .30-06 Springfield

    AK-47

    And the rumor is Santa is bringing me an AR-15.

    None. The statistics say that myself, the wife, or a random family member is more likely to get shot with it than a home invader. Plus, I don't hunt, so I have no need for one...

    If I could take your pain and frame it, and hang it on my wall,
    maybe you would never have to hurt again...

    I don't have them in my house because I don't have room for proper storage in my apartment and I won't be here long enough to bother, but I have two stored at my parent's house in Texas: a Winchester 94 that's been passed down a couple generations and a Remington 870 that was passed down from my dad. I also have his compound bow, which was his primary hunting weapon.

    Firearms in your home?

    I travel to work in an apache hello. Meanwhile I have a couple of drones circling my house armed with hellfire missiles for security. I'm waiting for the t1 to come off the assembly line to provide my own personal security.

    That little stat has been debunked for years now. It was a lie when it was said and it is still a lie.

    None. I believe that guns are miserable failures when it comes to home defense. Consider: A gun is most likely locked up if you are a responsible gun owner with children in the home. As such, if a home invasion occurs, the chances of you locating, unlocking the gun and successfully thwarting a home invader as you wipe away the sleep from your eyes during a tense situation in the darkness of your home does not give one the best odds. Additionally, most home intruders, one would assume, are attempting to rob your home not murder those within it, although there are cases where rape is the intruder's intent. If the intent of the intruder is to rob your home, they certainly do not desire to murder those within it. However, once a homeowner with a gun enters the equation, the stakes are upped, and the intruder's defenses are triggered. Its you or him. Introducing a gun into the equation greatly enhances the chances that you or a family member will be killed by the armed intruder, regardless of your skills with a firearm.

    A home alarm system and a canine are far superior home defense systems. Plus, a dog also provides something that a gun could never provide - love and companionship.

    In addition to the aforementioned failure of guns as home defense tools, statistics show that gun owners are much more likely to be killed by guns than non-gun owners - either due to accidents or crimes of passion.

    That being said, I am all for your right to own a gun, although I fail to see the need for semi-automatic or automatic rifles in the homes of regular citizens.
