Do you keep weapons in your household? For self-defense or anything else?

What makes you that much better than the other person?


What makes the man trying to kill me worth more?

The only weapon I possess is my middle finger. It doesn't do much.

That's a good point, though I'd just knock him out and call the cops..Or paralyze him. That works too..
Anyways, I don't really keep weapons in my house unless my kitchen knives or matches and rubbing alcohol count. My family taught me to be aware of my surroundings and use them to my advantage. (Though, I admit, a weapon here and there really would be helpful, but it's really not that safe since my sis is only two.)

Tell that to the person trying to kill you.


If they are serious about killing me and have the balls to actually do it, I will let them do so.

There are 2 possible reasons you are saying this.
1. You hate your life and just want to die
2. You act like a hero here, but if that situation were to come up you would kill him.

Either way, you should fix your attitude, whenever it will be on your own or get professional help. I`m saying this for your own good.

Listen, your logic fails on so many levels that you just sound like an idiot at this point. No sane person would let someone kill them in the way you describe.


How is your life more important?
How does my logic fail?
Why would a sane person want to kill someone just to live?


Why is my life not more important?



Because you are a mortal, and will eventually die like the rest of us.


So then why is it okay for them to kill you, but not you them?


Because it is not my world. If they do not want me here, I will gladly leave.







How does your logic not fail?



Because nobody is better than any other person. We are all equal, and should be treated equally.


If we are all equal, then why is that person attacking you in the first place? He should treat you with equal love and concern that he would his with his family or himself.


Because he has a severe mental problem, so we need to be proactive and try to eliminate these psychological deficiencies from the human condition so we don't have to worry about people killing each other.






Why wouldn't a sane person want to kill just to live?



Because the person you just killed could have easily been a future friend of yours, but you never gave them the chance to prove that they could change.


Why didn't he first ask for your hand in friendship and help, rather than threaten your life?


Because he has a severe mental problem that needs to be tended to first.





See, this is why your logic fails. You're claiming that there is equality, but in the same sentence claiming that one person should break that equality to change the outcome through specific actions that are outside of being realistic. It's a fallacy known as reification.


When did I ever say a person should break the equality?

I can't help it if you don't believe me.

Nobody is worth more, you are both equal.

Dam...So many scared people.
I own no weapons and have no need for them. Although, in the near future I would like to go to the gun range just for the hell of it.


Yes, exactly. If people weren't so scared of death, they would only own guns for recreational purposes.

I keep a swiffer nearby at work... cause i think it would be funny to see someone get beat with one after they try to rob a place. Cause then they would never live it down when they goto jail and someone recognizes them from youtube. That and its non-lethal, plus i have cops sitting in the store for 1-3 hours at a time, so i know ill never need it.

Keeping a gun or two in the house seems reasonable but having one in every room? Do you think you will be in some situation like in the movies? Aren't you just giving them a chance to arm themselves with one of your own guns? If I break in and am able to spot one of your guns I guarantee you I will grab it even if I had no intention of causing harm to the people in the house. I support owning guns within reason but too many people go overboard with it and end up being a threat themselves. (Not saying anyone is at that level in this thread. I just remember articles about situations like that.)

Anyone that owns a gun for non-recreational purposes is a threat. They would probably shoot someone for stepping on their lawn.

A lot of time goes into keeping a yard nice so I see no issue with that. You only need to shoot one to keep the rest off usually.
