Response to rgbecker (Original post)

51. One neighbor had one. I'm not in fear of one.

It happened about 4 months afte we moved in. Somebody backed their truck up to the garage door then broke down the front door, assuming that the owner was out and they could burgle at their leisure. IT was 10:30 or 11 am.

She was in the living room watching the tv the robbers wanted to steal. She stood up and reportedly asked them what they thought they were doing.

A minute later she was on the floor, shot in the legs.

The robbers took off. She called an ambulance and was taken to a trauma center.

Unless she had a gun loaded and next to her chair, it wouldn't have helped her in the least.

Then again, it's not like the robbers needed it. They also didn't own their guns legally.
