    that they DO think it will always be as it is in the movies, the hero miraculously is facing a mirror when the bad guy point the gun at his back. And the hero's gun happens to be in the drawer right under the mirror. And the bad guy doesn't hear the drawer opening.

    •  yup. (6+ / 0-)

      There is a huge amount of fantasy going on with the gun nuts. Very much, I believe, is based on the clichés they see in movies, TV, and games.

      Of course, they never think about how a real home invasion robbery would actually be like. A robber is going to be jumping with adrenalin when he breaks into a home when he knows people are inside. His flight or fight is going to be running at the max.

      The homeowner is either going to be relaxed or asleep. All the odds lie with the crook.

      Right many are called, and damn few are chosen.
