Do you actually think some thug would sit there and allow you to meticulously disconnect his brain and heart? You would never get a chance to shoot any one if you go about it that way, sorry.
Look up Taurus Judge Public Defender on YouTube dirtbag. Getting shot by one with shotgun shells disconnects your mind and your heart. Hopefully you try robbing someone whom shoots you with said Taurus Judge Public Defender. You would judge jury and executioner dip shit!!!!!

I know you are too stupid to understand why a city with 9 million people in it has more murders than a city with 50,000.

This damn forum full of ignoramuses get me so damn tickled. The sad part is Im worried you may be as stupid as you sound. So the most threatened man in America has 5 firearms. And enough ammunition to keep them all loaded. That's really something hahaha. A quick rundown for the less than knowledgeable idiots please listen and learn something today ok?
AR-15 and two 30rd magaines - 60 rds
3 Semi Automatic handguns w/12-15rd magazines 36-45rds
1Shotgun with 8 rd capacity 8 rds
Total 104-113 rds

Naturally the ammunition could be broken down any number of ways but in any circumstances its much less than any normal firearm owner would possess under the circumstances
Just to set the record straight once AGAIN. By the way the ignorance of the left wing liberals never ceases to amaze me hahaah. What idiots!

An "arsenal"???? Three handguns, a shotgun and a rifle is barely a starter kit. And 106 rounds of ammo wouldn't last an hour at a range.

But keep embellishing as you always do. It is still quite comical.
