    Mother ****er comes into my house with a gun he better be willing to die, because I am. Either I'm dead or they are but you can damn well rest assured that it will be on my terms and not me sitting passively by waiting to see what happens next.

    Wild West style shootouts didn't even happen very often in the Old West. That's part of the mythology of the time but nothing else.

    Why You NEED Standard Capacity Magzines: Multiple Home Invaders

    At the end of the day, I'm going to have 13 round magazines in my house for my P229 because I damned well feel like it. If they are outlawed, I will have reached the point of civil disobedience the moment the statute is enacted. It's my freaking house. And I won't be the only one.

    You have a FAR better chance to be a victim of home invasions than getting struck by lighting. But I'm sure even you take the precaution of not going outside during a lighting storm. Granted the chances of home invasions are low but they still do happen and happen everyday. Having a gun with a standard size clip is the precaution americans take. Now I understand that you wouldn't do anything and even submit to the will of your home invaders. But for the rest of us that's not an option and happens to be our 2nd amendment rights. Mandating 7 bullet clips won't stop gun violence or mass shootings at all. It will only take away the liberties of Americans who are now no safer and even worse at a total disadvantage to criminals. Much like the Patriot Act, TSA, Warrentless Searches and the bloated DHS hasn't made us any safer from terrorism. The thought process of exchanging liberty for safety has been a failed one.

    Exactly the argument I use to justify my bazooka.

    The chance of someone breaking in looking to hurt you is probably much less than being hit by lightening.

    Well, OK. You now have about the same chance of dying from a lightening strike as you did before.

    Im not saying gun should be illegal. Im just saying the OP is far fetched.

    Until it happens. Just because something is not very likely this in no way should limit our rights to defend ourselves in that situation.

    I mean its like ppl that think they don't need to ever defend themselves because they can always dial 911.

    People get life insurance. They don't have it because they feel they are going to die tomorrow. They have it because they may die tomorrow.

    OK, fine. Defend yourself. Just dont try make it sound like its anything but a remarkably unlikely scenario. I dont play the lottery. I suppose theres a chance I could win, but I have a negative expected return on my money. Same thing for this scenario. Its possible youll use a gun to prevent something. But the chances you or a family member will be harmed by the gun are higher than the chances of shooting an intruder.

    Just say you like to hunt or shoot guns or the range or whatever else. Bring up the constitution. Theres a very good case to be made for having weapons for various reasons. Fighting off multiple armed intruders Rambo style is a silly one.
