Never said he was part of the problem, I said… “Its people like you, in your fantasy world that actually makes it EASY for the "BAD PEOPLE" of this world to do as they wish!” Take it however you will though.
He said…As I type this I notice my sliding glass door on the back porch is unlocked. I tell you what. Im about to go to sleep in a bit. I will leave it unlocked. This is not uncommon for me. I dont think the front door is locked either. I never check to be honest. I own no gun. Anyone who dares to enter...... go for it. Now, if you have a gun, Im screwed. I basically will let you take what you wish. Im not a poor. I can easily replace most items.
1. He concedes here that he is screwed if he doesn’t have a gun=win for my side of the argument.
2. He ASSUMES they are only there to take his stuff=denial=believes he has a fortune cookie and can see the future=win for my side of the argument
He said…Now, if you have come to harm my family, youre going to have to shoot me. If you dont, Im coming right for you and your gun at some point. So be prepared to fire it.
1. He again is assuming he can disarm/defend/beat down/whatever against an armed assailant=win for my side of the argument.
2.He can do all these BAD ASS things=over self confidence=win for my side.
He said…Thing is, I dont think anyone wishes to harm me or my family. At least not anyone I know of. Most of the time, its people you know who do such a thing. I guess if a family member or friend went ape **** and had their mind set on harming us, then they are going to at some point whether its in my home or at theirs etc etc etc. It dosent have to be at night while Im sleeping.
1.Assumptions, assumtions, assumptions=win for my side
2.Has already previously admitted he lives in a CRIME FREE environment, but also knows what the criminal mind is like, what their going to do etc.,=can read minds=living in DENIAL=win for my side.
He said…If were talking a random stranger.... that **** is so rare that I cant concern myself with it. Thats just bad luck. Who storms into peoples home with motives to do harm like that? Strangers. The Night Stalker Richard Ramirez? Yea, that **** happens sometimes. There are evil scumbags like him. I dont think anything like that has ever happened in this town though. Anyone who has been killed in a home invasion Im pretty sure its been people they know. Most of the time that stuff happens its because people associate with bad people or are involved in illegal activities themselves. Im in the clear there.
1.Is NOT concerned with things like that happening to him=DENIAL=win for my side.
2.Doesnt THINK anything like that has ever happened in his town=doesn’t know for sure, who knows?=better to-be-safe-than-sorry=win for my side.
3.Assuming again, assuming it USUALLY happens, hes PRETTY SURE, only to people who associate with bad people=assuming again=labeling others=catagorizing victims=win for my side again.
He said…im just not scared. I guess you think we all should be, but Im sorry Im just not. I cant worry about Ted Bundy visiting my home. He wasnt interested in men anyway. Most deranged serial killers like that have a type. I cant think of another home invader who killed random families like that other than Richard Ramirez. Im sure there are others. Again, Im just not worried about it though.
1.Again he acts as though he KNOWS the criminal element, then gives counter arguments which contradict his statements, and further shows he doesn’t know for sure=win for my side again.
2.Not worried again=denial=win for my side of the argument.
His whole argument is built on assumptions and a false sense of security. He says something, then openly admits he doesn’t “really know.” That says it all to me, cuz we ALL don’t really know anyones true intentions, do we? I never said he was part of the problem, but in retrospect, I think that he actually is, because he is living in a fantasy world, in which he thinks he knows what someones true intentions are, and that he can do some kind of “Chuck Norris Kung-Fu” **** on them and magically disarm them weather their alone or accompanied by other assailants. I choose to take measures to protect myself and family however I can. But then again, I live in a place called REALITY…
