    Can we stop calling them assault rifles. That's a term the anti-gun crowd and the media use to make them scary. Semi-automatic rifles are the correct term. You want a real assault rifle then join the military.

    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. 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    So if someone wants to come in with a gun and steal my stuff.... be my guest. I will survive. Im not going to introduce a gun into the situation. All that does is up the ante. The intruder then fears for his life and is much more likely to fire his weapon. I dont want anyone firing a gun in my home. Take my stuff. I will get new stuff. I only have one life though. I only have one wife and two kids. They arent replaceable.

    Now, if you dont have a gun and you enter my home with bad intentions....... you just ****ed up. You may want to rush quick before I rise up out of my bed. I am a light sleeper. Its going to help if you know the layout of my home and can get to me before I realize whats happening. Because if I get up before you bash me over the head with some blunt object, its going to be a rough evening for you. I know the layout of my home and can get around very easily in the dark. I know where all types of weapons are and how to get to them. I have a couple of things close by my bed I could easily defend myself with against whatever it is you have that isnt a gun.

    Basically, Im going to be just fine. I dont need a gun. I want nothing to do with them. You gun nuts can shoot yourselves all you want. Just leave me out of it. Im not frieghtened by the almost non existant possibility of a home invader entering my house with a gun. There is probably a better chance I get shot in some public place that is supposed to be safe and peaceful just because you gun nuts wont put your weapons away.
    Great post, man. Great post. Perfectly said...

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

    That's your right and more power to you. But it's also my right to have a gun in my home and to not be a victim.

    Why does anyone need a musket? Not for hunting. ILLEGAL!

    Just because you don't understand why people want to have semi automatic weaponry doesn't give you the right to ban it for everyone.

    Speaking of what could realistically happen, what's more common:
    A home invasion or a massacre carried out with semi automatic rifles?

    Which side is being realistic and which side is being unreasonable here?

    Great point. I wish I could thank you a hundred times for that one. Home invasions are an everyday thing in this country.

    It's mentally staggering how powerful the American media truly is. They've been brainwashing poor people and the simple-minded for years now. And these people are the ones voting for our leaders and helping strip away our freedoms one by one by one.

    These people aren't intelligent enough to think for themselves so they park their fat asses in front of their televisions and let people tell them what's wrong with the world around them. It's that we waste our time and money fighting the wrong issues. This stuff never happened before until the last 15 years or so. Now, all of a sudden, it's the guns fault.

    That's the problem with a lot of people. They look for the quick fix rather than addressing the true problems at hand because it's easier. People are so mentally lazy so they just point fingers until something sticks.

    someone had It right the other day, we misplace blame all the time, pit bull bites someone, it must be the dogs fault. someone gets shot, it must be the guns fault. Seriously, it is and always has been the responsibility of the individual to control their own actions. If a person is unable to control their own actions, we need a better way to identify these people so that they can get help controlling their actions.
