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 ?
