Well good luck with that. Maybe you can humor an armed burglar while you stand there in your tighty whities at 3am with a whistle and pepper spray while he has a Glock pointed in your face.

I keep a Sig 9mm next to my bed and am licensed to conceal carry. I will whenever I feel the need. I would rather have it and not need it versus the other way around.

What does IQ have to do with gun ownership? Anyone with a high IQ would laugh at that notion.

There's no ignorance. We live in Wisconsin. There's no crime here. People don't even close their garage doors at night, or take their keys out of their cars, let alone lock their doors. Having a gun around would simply be foolish & asking for trouble. Guns are for people afraid of the boogeyman. And then gun owners end up accidentally shooting themselves.

3,800 people died in a 5 year span from accidentally shooting themselves..

Hmm. Tell that to the families of the people that get shot up.

Gun owners that shoot themselves probably shouldn't have had a firearm to begin with.

This looks like a good place to check back in at.

One of the things I like about the skirts is being able to wear a thigh holster under a split one.

Sort of the line of thought I have when I am traveling across country and have a rifle in addition. In this nutty, unstable world of ours, I don't want to be out of home field without it, if I am calling the shots.

Admittedly, the member of the family I told was the one I was traveling with recently and despite being career Army, still saw what I was carrying as a weapon of war. I didn't tell him that the new one was another one, but I think he knew that it was.....what is a semi automatic rifle to me was a weapon of war to him.

Having such experience, how could he think so? As to why did I say at all? I suppose most of us have a need to share our lives, of what we do, with our family, yes?

Oh no. I’ve got some rounds for her that will kick you like a Jersey cow, lol.

Pepper spray and whistle with dialoguing CD come wrapped in a white flag?

Unruly strangers should be terrified.....

A man who would leave his home unlocked while his loved ones slept in their beds at night is not very bright. A man should protect his family.
