    Personally, I don't want to shoot another human being. I don't want to hurt anyone else. I don't care who they are.

    There are two types of people who look forward to shooting another man. Those who have never done it and don't understand the aftermath, and those who have done it before and look forward to the next opportunity. Either way, they bother me.

    Same here. Shooting folks generates way too much paperwork..legal expenses...a need to have a pre planned bug out location in case the alleged perp aint a straight white adult male Christian etc. The Black Panthers still have a dead or alive reward out for poor old Officer Wilson up in Missouri. Hope he took my good advice and moved to Nocona, TX.

    I have several 20# fire extinguishers, when one of them puffs their vape pen I will shout fire and hose them down if the cops haven't cleared them out already.

    I would fix myself a Peanut butter and ketchup sandwich, drink two beers and a glass of milk. Then I would walk up to the leader and throw up all over him/her

    Florida was the first state with Shall Issue, thanks to Marion Hammer of the NRA, back in 1989.
    Castle Doctrine was gradually changed from your house itself, to your property outside your house, and finally everywhere you are legally allowed to carry. No "duty to retreat."
    The NRA got all that for us, that's why I support them.

    Amen!
    In the 1980's I struggled my part in the war and did a personal Bible search to see what God had to say about killing and warfare.
    That, plus time, plus some counselling, enabled me to find peace.

    That said, I know also that God is OK with self defense, and I will defend myself and my family, if it comes to that.

    I was hoping for a poll on this topic.

    If they were trespassing and appeared to be violent, I'd have my wife call the police and say she was fearful for her life, I'd either let the dogs loose or I'd introduce them to the devastation a Mossberg 590M loaded with twenty rounds of #4 buck can wreak on a group of people.

    Pretty much my stance really, all kidding aside. The police will deal with em in the street, if it's me and mine, then that's another matter. Their right to protest ends at my yard and I will insure they know the price that will be paid should they make the mistake of trespass.

    A guy I used to work with managed to take a knife away from a crazy guy by blasting him with a dry powder fire extinguisher. Very effecrtive tool.
