Thank you for sharing that Delbert, I am thankful that your father wasn't injured. I guess it goes to show you that there are real threats out there, not just from Al Qeda! I agree that the guns need to be stored correctly, but to say that there is no need is simply ludicrus.<quoted text>I do understand the concept of keeping a loaded gun in the house. Two years ago, my father had two men invade his house in rural Nebraska. They thought he was a hapless old man, unable to defend himself. Well, the first shot caught the first young upstanding citizen right square in the chest, killing him instantly. The next shot caught the second pillar of the community in the upper thigh, putting him down. My father calmly dialed 911 and told the local S.O. the story. After a brief investigation, the sheriff commended my father for his quick thinking and told him how lucky he was. Apparently these young men had done this several times before and left their victims severely beaten. So 0mni, there is a need for it but I agree that the firearms need to be kept responsibly. Most of the time they are kept without incident until there is a tragedy. My thoughts and prayers are with the family.

My 16 year old son killed my 14 year old daughter with a ice pick. He just walked up to her and stuck the ice pick in her heart right after she took her bra off.
