Easy does it - I didn't assume anything - it was a global suggestion.

With a name like Winston, I can see you just may have a point.

That's ridiculous.
With the "Castle" law and the
"Stand your ground" law there
is no case here.

If someone breaks into my
home they will be very lucky
Not to get shot.

It's not like I'd want to.
But if it's between some guy
breaking into my home and my
life (and my kids) he would
loose.

Why do you think we are allowed
to own firearms? You're a
Republican. I thought you guys
were NRA all the way...? lol

Bull. You can carry a gun in the bank. You can carry in church. You can not carry in a court or government building

Other than the places I mentioned the only way a business can keep you from carry in their business is post a very specific sign that quotes the 3006 provision of the law. I have never seen that sign posted. You can carry in a place that serve alcohol as long as the sales is less than 51% of their business and they must post that sign. So you can carry in a place that has a bar and serves food but not in a bar whose business has 51% of sales in alcohol

I wasn't planning on responding to this anymore but I saw on the news today where a store was robbed in Louisville. Yes, he had a gun and a customer was shot and killed... This was kind of a follow up from yesterday....

It depends on the size of the fire. If it is just a stove fire, then the time needed to round everyone up is the time it takes to put it out. Just put a lid on it or dump flour on it. However, if it is a fully involved fire or close to that, the best bet is to leave. A guy ran two buildings over to borrow a phone when there was a fire extinguisher in the hall. When he accidentally set the sheet on fire with the crack pipe, he probably had a good chance at putting it out if he had grabbed the extinguisher. But given his state of mind, he probably did the right thing.

You may not be able to change most ppls minds but
sometimes you end up talking to someone who is open
minded and your opinion helps them to see a topic
in a different light.

My exterior doors are steel with long deadbolts. I also have dogs. I'm a light sleeper, so I doubt very seriously anyone can sneak up on me while sleeping. My husband has a loaded .380 just under the mattress and the loaded 12 gauge is in the hall closet, close to the front door. The .22 rifle is in the gun cabinet. My point is, by the time anyone could break into my house, I would be standing there waiting for them. I won't run, but they might! If they run, I won't shoot them, but take one step into my home.....

Just saying that every person and every situation is different. Do what works best for you. I know that if I do have to shoot an intruder, which I hope I never have to, the laws in my State protect ME, not the intruder.
