His wife could probably beat your azz to a pulp if you're that fearful you can't live without your pocket soother.

Another attempt to assign cowardice to those not needing a firearm and living without "fear" of a boogyman under the bed.

Here's a tip that might work for some of you: instead of buying a firearm to handle the boogyman just cut the legs off your bed.

Nah, I'm a gun owner. But i'm not going to play Rambo and none of my stuff is worth taking another life for. I will shoot if my life is threatened and I will choose my ground as far as possible. Running around playing Rambo surrenders that advantage.

These threads are always full of people who talk big but who have clearly very little real firearm or home defense training.

It's not a freakin' accident - stop sugarcoating. She consciously chose to point her gun at an unknown person and pull the trigger. She didn't bother to confirm there was a threat, she just made an assumption - and it cost her daughter her life. It was reckless and irresponsible, but it wasn't an accident. She intended to kill whoever it was, and she didn't bother to confirm what she was shooting at despite the fact that she hadn't bothered to ascertain that it wasn't someone who was supposed to be there.

Another article says the daughter was visiting for the holidays, so she had every right to be in that house.

Again, this was NOT an accident. It was negligence. No matter how bad the mother feels now, there's no way around the fact that she killed her daughter through her own recklessness.

America didn't win WW2??!!! You must have learned world history in Japan or Russia.

So, you're saying that the mother shot her purposely.

You hear someone crash though your back door at 3am and you have three bedrooms with children sleeping. You're just going to "choose your ground" without knowing the true intent or weaponry that they have?
