The Attack on Self-Defense

Some years back, a public service TV ad depicted patients being told by a doctor that they had a tobacco-related illness: lung cancer, heart disease, emphysema, etc. It asked, “If you’re not planning to quit smoking, then what are you planning?” So let me ask: If you’re not planning to use a firearm to defend your home against invasion, what are you planning to do?

    1) Only the law abiding are affected by gun control.
    2) Strict gun controls lead to high crime rates.
    3) Progressives will never stop trying to take your guns.

    Draw your own conclusions.

    Even if you cannot afford a high tech alarm system, you can install inexpensive motion sensors with an alarm that goes off by your bed. Get a hand gun and a stun gun and learn how to use them. Any major brand revolver is usually reliable – meaning it won’t jam in an emergency. If you want a semi-automatic, purchase top of the line like Glock or Springfield; many semis have a habit of jamming at the worst possible moment. If you can afford it, get a fingerprint safe for your loaded gun; it keeps the children safe and you can open it in about 2 seconds. Buy the best ammo available.

    But most importantly, get a self defense handgun before they are outlawed or regulated to the point of being almost unobtainable.

      …I always wanted a pistola, for the bush, I could get a carry permit if I wanted to…but after trying buddy’s Walther PPQ Navy 9mm at a range, I realized you/me can’t hit piss bugger all with them, you need a lot of training and practice to be accurate under duress. Try a 20 guage shotgun or a sweet KelTec Sub2000 Gen 2…

      …another tidbit. Statistics bullshit that you are 25-30 times more likely to turn the gun on yourself, than having to use it to actually defend yourself….

    I’m in favor of gun control….
    …that’s why I always use both hands.

    Same as asking if you are not planning on burning your house down, why did you take out fire insurance. The truth, at least for most, is that one takes out fire insurance in case there is a need, just as one has a gun in case there is a need.

      If you’re not planning on getting into a car accident, then why put on the seatbelt?

        Seatbelt on a Lazi-Boy, just in case.
