Gun control ......Still ?

So , proven over and over again , a government that legislates the over control of personal freedoms is doing just that , creating a tyranny ,. Recently in Vermont where I live , one city has legislated that all guns in any household must be kept locked up at all times . Imagine this if you can ; you awaken to the sounds of two people climbing the stairs in your house , and once you come fully awakened from a sleepy stupor , you rise up and there they are, at the foot of your bed when you turn the lights on ! One man holds a butcher knife from your own kitchen , the other goes to your wife's side of the bed . Now ......what you do or say next will determine how this fairly common situation plays itself out !

One -- . You could pull a fast one and have already pulled the 45 out from under the bed and have had it under your comforter , thereby pulling it out and say something brave !

Two --, the shotgun leaning behind your head would already be in your arms pointing at the two dumbfounded fools at the foot of your bed !

Three --, you could - if you have time , try to make it to the place where you have hidden the keys to your gun case and then make your way to the case ,try to unlock it , grab a defense weapon , lock and load it , cock it and point it in the right direction to try to stop the intruder going for your wife or daughters room !

Four-- , You could call a "time out" and ask permission of these very fair minded criminals and ask them to give you a chance to arm yourself legally so that you might
" legally " defend all that is yours ! And then perhaps ask for them to reconsider their acts and see how that works out !

Five --, you could reach for the phone and call 911 and wait approximately seventeen to thirty six minutes for a state trooper to arrive at your outside door . Who, more than likely will then await back up before entering your house !

Now this is important ,--seriously ,Without creating more mindless debate about the constitutionally entitled second amendment rights -Which one of the above would you attempt and which of these scenario's are you prepared for ?

I'll take number two. I've changed my mind since people are dying right in their own homes, and not too far away....

Ruby , Eddy my beautiful friends ! I get so tired of the same old rhetorical balonya , facts and figures being sloshed around by this crazy media ! Can't people use their own imagination to make up their own minds ? Criminal minds completely ignore the laws ! Only law abiding people conform . Be well all !

Get em Ed! The government is so stupid and ignorant about these things. They dont understand because they probably have security 24/7 who have guns protecting them. They think the police and justice system really have our backs when half of them are dirty anyway and take forever to get to your house when u really need em, but they will be there in a jiffy if they think you doing something illegal. Crooks dont care about laws so why should we. We dont need gun control, we need gun responsibility and safety for proper use in case we one day need to defend ourselves and our homes
