The premise of this thread is incomplete. Frequently th purpose of a gun is to be used as a threat and not intended to be discharged.

Complete and utter b*llsh*t.
US DOJ statistics show about 11,000 gun deaths per year in the United States. Over half of them are suicides, leaving ~5,500 (or a bit fewer) that were not intentionally self-inflicted.
Same DOJ statistics show guns are used to deter crime 82,500 times a year, 62,200 of those "violent" crimes.

Thwarted attempts on life don't grab headlines like unthwarted ones do.
Besides, I have a fundamental right to protect myself and my family from threats from those with their own guns who have no respect for my rights.
Destruction is not necessarily a bad thing.
Threats need to be destroyed. A threat to destroy me needs to be countered by a threat to destroy the destroyer.
Evil exists and always will. Curtailing our ability to destroy its agents merely encourages the destruction of the good and the innocent by evil. Case and point... Sandy Hook.

Excellent info.

I wonder why no anti-gun zealots are responding to what you wrote?

if you had your way. this would have ended differently. as in most likely the woman would have either been raped and or killed. the kids would have been most likely killed by the intruder. as in a woman who was at home when a intruder broke in. http://www.thedenverchannel.com/news/u-s-worl... ATLANTA - A Georgia woman hiding with her children in her attic, shot an intruder five times before fleeing to safety.

“My wife is a hero. She protected her kids. She did what she was supposed to do as a responsible, prepared gun owner,”[the woman's husband] Donnie Herman said.
He said he’s thankful for his family’s safety.
“Her life is saved, and her kids’ life is saved, and that’s all I’d like to say,” Herman said

yes lives have been destroyed by firearms. but many more have been saved by firearms. not only in defense of one's home. but also many a attempted rapist has been deterred from raping his intended victim. when he found out that the intended victim was armed.

lets get a few things straight.
.
1. I'm not a libtard. I am a Republican
2. I do not do drugs. I am against illegal drugs. illegal drug trade needs to be stopped.
3. try reading up on other past posts I have done. you would not have labeled me a libtard if you had done your research.
