    Real life is cruel. Bad things happen. Everyone is the "somebody else" to everyone else.

    Everyone thinks it can't happen to them. Unfortunately, the ones who were defenseless often can't tell their story...they're the ones in the bodybags after the home invasion.

    Don't want a gun and don't want to train to be able to properly use one, fine.

    But don't tell me I can't have the most effective means that exist to quickly stop a more powerful, perhaps drug-addled threat. And yes, that includes semi-auto rifles, ask anyone who survived Katrina.

      that I promise that should they ever be in a life threatening position that I will not pull my weapon to help them ....

      BTW HR 1022 ... the R(uger) 10/22 is a fine semi automatic rifle. Wonder how they picked the number??

      It doesn't really matter if I'm wrong I'm right Where I belong I'm right Where I belong.

    •  for every one person killed in a home invasion... (0+ / 0-)

      ...by a gun there is at least that many killed by guns in domestic violence incidences.

      We Glory in war, in the shedding of human blood. What fools we are.
