What do you do you plan on doing when an intruder comes into your house and threatens your and your families life?

I guess you could call the police. They would be there in minutes when seconds count.

Intruders do have ball bats and knives and their fists. However, you did not answer the question. What do you plan to do when an intruder breaks into your house and threatens your life?

Look into the comparative figures, kid. What I do is avoid silly gun-mad wet dreams and sleep.

Show me the comparative figures. For a start, how many intruders were deterred because the home owners might have a gun in the house?

You are still avoiding the question. What do you intend to do when an intruder threatens you and your loved ones?

Look, what do you intend to do when aliens carry you off to the moon? If you must play silly buggers, play silly buggers ew, but don't try to draw me in.

Your arguments are getting weaker and weaker. Pick up any large newspaper and you will likely find something about intruders breaking into a home killing or injuring the owners. I doubt that you will find much about aliens on the moon.

Iolo is merely putting his hands over his ears, closing his eyes, and shouting na-nana-na-na-na at this point.

Unlike some, I know where I live and what reality is here.

Iolo is merely demonstrating he doesn't believe the hysterical propaganda of drunken foreign nutters.

You have never said what you would do if an intruder broke into your house and threatened you or your loved ones. Best I can tell, you would just let them kill you.

Yes, be afraid, be very afraid, silly hysterical Yankee flibberty-gibbets! You have enemies everywhere! They are all about to attack you! There they are! Over there! No, over there! In the shadows! You see them don't you? What are you going to do to ward off the terrible dangers that surround you!

Believe it or not, Iolo, it all makes sense to the TV-drugged American masses.

If they had any brains, they would worry about real dangers --- like getting into a car and driving! That's where they are most likely to meet death and dismemberment.

The NRA is for making big profits for gun manufacturers and supporting fascist billionaire oligarchs.

Americans are so stupid that they cannot even see that the NRA is the biggest and most dangerous terrorist organization threatening them, and lodged right inside their own country!

Your usual idiotic statements. We live in the country. Our nearest full time neighbors are over a mile away and law enforcement is seven miles and probably fifteen to thirty minutes away. We love it out here with nature, but, if we want anything done, whether it be plumbing, carpentry, electrical or self defense, we are prepared to do it ourselves.

Also, because of our physical location, we frequently get strangers stopping by wanting help. Given our age, I am eighty and my wife is slightly younger, we are no match for just about anyone who wants to do us harm. Guns are the equalizer.

Keeping and knowing how to properly use our weapons pose no harm to anyone except someone who is stupid enough to try to do us harm.

Danger from one direction does not preclude us from protecting ourselves from danger in another direction.
Thanks from Ralph47

I will grudgingly admit that a gun makes some sense for people in your position --- but your position is not that of the urbanized masses.

It is just too bad that you live in such a barbaric country that you cannot have even minimal trust in the people surrounding you.

My son "trusted" he car was safe being parked on the street for a couple hours in Vancouver (B.C.) in the daytime. He was mistaken, as it was broken into.

Still dumb comments. Let me know when you have no violent crime in Canada.

Unfortunately, there are bad people out there and getting rid of our guns will not change that.

I expect to go my entire life without firing a gun in anger, but I am prepared to protect ourselves in the event the unlikely happens. It like what the ninety year old lady with a 44 Magnum Pistol said when asked what she was afraid of. "Not a damned thing".

I hope your cell is padded. You've spent far too long playing cowboys. See if you can get the grown-ups to let you into a normal country.
