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

Bashment

the cx4 storm looks like my type of gun :o


fun fact, the CX4 is the gun that the marines used in the newer Battlestar Galactica show, i guess because they thought it looked futuristic.

Do you believe guns should be aloud in the states?

Now I don't know about the rest of you ,but I consider self-defense important. I keep a AK-47 behind my door ,a .45 magnum under my pillow ,a double-barrel in my living room ,a .35 In my car ,and a P22 Walter on me in public. Followed my various other weapons in my house.


Which means that by the time a smart thief gets to you in your home they have the potential of having several of your own guns (one from every room in your house?) plus whatever he decided to bring.

Personally I have a .44 mag loaded with special rounds for home defense. But I keep it in a special place that only I know. The worst thing you can do I let it slip out you have a shit-ton of firearms stacked up in your house cause those are #1 thief priority and all they have to do is wait for you to leave, gun's don't protect shit if your not there to pull the trigger.

Also, I'm curious, why so many guns? Do you have people that want to kill you? Are you a gangbanger with enemies? Are terrorist targeting your neighborhood for some reason? Do you think the Government is going to kick in your door and try to kill you in your sleep? Statistically speaking you have a better chance of being struck by lightning than being involved in a home invasion type of crime, and if you were, a smart thief or murderer wouldn't give you a chance to get to your piece ("smart" being the operative word here.)

Really, "Because it's cool." To me, isn't a good enough reason to be able to own an assault rifle with a hundred round drum. Or 50 guns and thousands of rounds of ammo.

Just remember if you are planning anything, not that I'm saying you are, that Gov already knows, unless you've been wearing your tinfoil hat constantly.

I don't own any firearms, but if someone broke into my house they would most certainly meet my hatchet and machete that I keep around for yard work.

because firearms for the millions upon millions of gun-owners are a hobby just like any other and Americans have a right (not to be confused with a privilege) to own them. some people might collect 19th century firearms, others collect firearms used in 20th century warfare, some like to build firearms themselves from parts or are gunsmiths for a profession. some have multiple firearms for multiple different purposes, maybe a pistol for self defense, a rifle and a shotgun for hunting different types of game, a semi-automatic rifle for sporting/competition, still some people used semi-automatic rifles to defend their stores and property during the LA Riots

I wonder why the media hardly reports this.

Haha. Most of these points would make sense if I had of bought the weapons. Let's learn a thing or two before throwing insults and attacking.

1. I did not buy any of these guns. I have these guns plus about 3 or 4 more. I received every gun I own from inheritance. I also have the legal checks to own them and the documents.
2. Guns and ammunition are kept separate. Close ,but separate. None of the hiding spots are as plain as listed ,but I didn't really writing out an essay to explain so I left it at that.
3.I don't need to get to my weapon to detain said murderer or thief ,but if I can it'd help.
4. I've been in three home invasions and guns have never caused me a problem before.(Mentioned in a previous statement.) I grew up in a bad neighbor hood with shooting and stealing happening all around me.
5."Because it's cool" I don't have the time or money for that. Not to mention the biggest magazine I own is thirty rounds. Most of my guns have a reason to be there outside of self-defense.
6. Oh a eighteen year old male who cooks at a hibachi and only has fifteen remaining relatives is going to commit treason.
I don't know the point of your questioning, but that should answer it.

Since I'm currently too broke to buy any guns, the only self-defense weapon I have is a folding hunting knife. I tend to carry this with me most of the time since my part-time job is located in a pretty bad neighborhood and I often work the night shifts. In addition, I also take some night classes at my university, and while it doesn't happen often, plenty of crimes have already taken place there, especially during the dark.

If I had the money to buy guns though, I'd be interested in investing some money in a Benelli M1014 semi-auto shotgun or an Arisaka Type 99 bolt-action rifle.

You could feel safer. You don't bring a knife to a gunfight.

As far as the whole anti-gun v. pro-gun debate that this thread has sparked, I agree with what this guy has to say about it.

Oh, and here is another good one on crime statistics...

Sig P228 and FNH FNX9 all 9mm.
I also have the shooting range target poster with bullet holes (with groupings on neck, pelvis area, and 1 in between the eyes) plastered over my front door in case someone wants to burglarize our house. It's like a burglar beware sign, if they ignore it then prepare to meet the consequences.

Yes.

A BB gun that looks like a fancy handgun like SS people use. It probably wouldn't break your skin unless it was shot at someone point blank. It's more for show, or shooting bad guys' eyes out.

As the law in my country does not allow me owning a gun without a license I have a few swords to defend myself and my property with.
They swords are not sharp enough to cut someone, but they're sturdy things which can inflict enough pain on whoever enters my home without my permission.

Why do you need a semi-automatic for a shooting competition or for hunting?
