    i read this yesterday, and yes, of course, it's something we can all visualize without ever having seen one.  but what's beyond the picture?  

    what reason would one have for multiple weapons in a home, if the person felt a gun was needed for home protection?

    Yes, we need to talk about this. Please sign the dKos Petition to start a national conversation about gun control.

      reasons to have multiple guns, but the report that the elementary school teacher mother of the Newtown murderer had some doomsday prepper fantasies indicates the stories are more complicated. It certainly seems clear that she was tragically stupid enough to believe that she didn't have to keep her gun(s) safe from her very sick child.

      If one's house is large enough, it would be tragic to not be able to protect oneself in the situation of a home invasion, several fatal instances of which happened last week in CT before the tragedy, but calling 911 would be my first choice if I carried a celphone on my person at all times. Do you?

      than one weapon in the home.

      There is no one size fits all hunting weapon.  Even for the same game in different terrain, different weapons are ideal.

      For those who enjoy target shooting, smaller caliber weapons are desired because they're a lot cheaper to shoot.

      •  This was specifically addressing self protection, (3+ / 0-)

        though. Either one carries in the house or has guns in a safe or guns unlocked and available. The question is, what makes sense and is safe. Wouldn't you agree?
