Why would you be against anyone preparing for the worst case scenario?  Especially when it comes to a life or death situation.

What is the negative impact to being prepared, or overly prepared?

The point is that our gun culture lacks a realistic perception of credible threats and wastes time on 1:1000000 bogeymen. That's not an exaggeration. The odds of getting into a gunfight during a home invasion are over 1 in a million. Or are you going to deny that?

Oregon is next on the gun grabbers list and this command school tough guy could be handing over his rifles to the government as soon as 2021.

The government is the threat to your possessions and not some suburban robber trying to shoot it out and risk his life so he can pawn your hdtv.

Like I said he'll probably have to switch to "tactical shotguns for defense" and by then the libs will be out for "assault shotguns". Maybe at the point you will rethink calling me inexperienced.

all you need is a couple lady fingers, light em and toss them down the stairs and the home invaders will stumble over one another to get out!!

Oh wait...lady fingers are banned

As long as we have the habitat, we can argue forever about who gets to kill what and when.  No habitat = no game.

Gotta love a happy ending.
