You'd still want one around. You really want to roll the dice that no one else on the planet has a gun, or aren't coming to raid you for your stuff (or your life, or body, or worse) while you hold your butter knife?
Exactly this. Criminals will ALWAYS find a way to hurt other people.

Gun Free Zones are criminal target practice arenas. That should be obvious by any attack anywhere that doesn't allow guns.

Are we going to ban crockpots and slowcookers? That are ready made for bomb makkng...
Are we going to ban steak knives and butcher knives and machetes? Those kill too.
Cars.... lol.

True story: There was a case in Elkhart, Indiana where five kids went and broke into a guy's home. The guy was armed and shot one of the kids and he died. Instead of charging the homeowner who was defending his home against intruders, they charged the kids with the murder and they are now in jail and are infamously known as The Elkhart Four.

Reading this thread.



All seriousness. If people want a firearm for hunting or recreational fun, I have no issues with it.

So whats your point? Regardless of their age, they broke into this guys house. He has a right to defend himself and his property from theft, damage or his death.

Does it suck? Sure. Those kids should not have broken into the guys house. They made poor choices. Their friend paid the ultimate price.

If you drink and drive and crash into a telephone pole, is it the poles fault?

Leave the Poles alone. The Polish are a proud and noble people.

Nope. Read my earlier posts if you don't understand why. I need no gun to do damage to someone trying to hurt me. I prefer sharp pointy things that can be used repeatedly without needing to reload. Statistically, did you know that most women who kill use kitchen utensils? Why do you suppose that is? One word- CONVENIENCE, baby! We know where all the fun stuff is, and we have no qualms about using it if the need arises. You have to know how to shoot to hit anything with a gun, but a cast iron skillet upside an intruder's head will get the job done in one hit. Makes a nice omelet too. And since qe are on the subject, do you REALLY think Id go for a mere butter knife?! HECK TO THE NO. I have a nice long dagger that I keep within reach of the bed, and theres a trusty meat cleaver in the kitchen if I need a backup blade. And a few others I have handy aroynd the house too.

This does not surprise me. But it is the chance they took by breaking in.

Is that love for finding the pic?
Or for editing to put it behind a cut once I realized how freakin' huge it was?



Now that I look at it again, I have a few of those in my own home, only they're no where near as pretty.
They're ground down and have this really awesome rusty-looking patina to them, on account of the fact that I inherited them from my grandfather from his butchery days.

Funny story:
Because my apartment doesn't have a drawer deep enough to hold them, I keep them in this tupperware container. Because we're short on storage space, that tupperware container lived on the bottom shelf of a bookcase in the kitchen.

We were preparing to have a party, and I was fretting to a friend about how I didn't think the house was childproof enough, as I don't spend enough time around kids to really know what is/isn't safe at low levels.

"Plas, you're fine. It's not like you have a box of rusty knives within reach."
"..."
"You don't do you? Do you?"
"I'll be right back...."

Hey, I'm not condemning the guy. My point is that it's always good to have a gun handy for something like that. Sorry I didn't clarify that but I was in a hurry.

Yep, I agree that the kids took a bad chance and paid for it. And knives are a good weapon to have. Wish I had a katana blade though. That would REALLY come in handy.

The Walking Dead has mostly taught me to worry about nihilistic writers.
