It is a common false premise that handgun "use" = shooting and killing someone. Thus the classic stat..."a handgun in the home is 43 times/ 14 times/ 9 times more likely to kill someone in the home than a criminal"
Hopefully you have your property posted to let potential intruders know that you don't allow firearms on your property. "No guns allowed on this property."
I would hate to have you inadvertently benefit from the deterent effects of MY handguns. It would be a shame if a criminal mistakenly passed up your house for fear of meeting an armed home owner.
Have you posted you property?
I AM UNARMED. NO GUNS ALLOWED. I WILL CALL THE POLICE.
I suppose first-aid kits, and fire-extinguishers are not allowed either. Better to simply not allow injuries or fire on your property.
Flashlights? No blackouts allowed.
Seatbelts? NO ACCIDENTS ALLOWED.
Are you suggesting that you have no means to protect your home, your family, or your person other than through the use of a handgun? Frankly, that suggests a lack of imagination and ability..... How is it possible that I have survived this long without one? Sheer chance of the blessed idiot, I suppose......
