What if they break into your house while you're gone?

That is generally how people who want to break into your house and steal things operate. So it would indeed be a good idea to have your firearms properly secured for when you're not around.

this thread is awesome, it shows runec's skewed measuring stick by which things get compared - if its some trump nut saying something whacked, then its perfectly acceptable to link that to both trump himself and people that support him, but, if its a case of someone generally of his ideological persuasion committing something, well, that's just one lone nut, now let's not paint all puff ho users the same, that'd be stereotyping now.


If Hillary had said to go out and break into people's homes to steal their guns you might have a point. I also identified this lot as a group and never said anything about "all huff po users". Other than that though you're totally on point!

If you must include me in your fantasies I would like to be played by Daniel Craig. You can take my shirt off if you want ( I mean, Daniel Craig, who wouldn't ) but the pants stay on and keep the hanky panky to a minimum.



Its unfortunate that your arguments all too often rely on there being movable goalposts

Citations needed

They don't care if they hurt people. They even enjoy it.

Who is "they"?

I don't need a citation to point out that burglaries are more common than home invasions. Hell, theft of firearms from burglaries is actually pretty rare and largely more of a problem in rural areas of the south curiously enough. Contrary to whatever is going on in that troll article.

I'd love to hear where you get your news from, lol

wit until they commit the unconstitutional act of banning guns, then you'll see firearm theft become much more of a problem

Burp. He/she/cat-person didn't say that violent home invasions don't occur, only that thieves generally prefer the residents aren't home, and the crime statistics back them up in that regard:

It's fairly common knowledge that the "prime time" for burglaries is between 10:00 AM and 3:00 PM - because between work and school, residents are less likely to be home. (Overall, 65% of all burglaries occur between 6:00 AM and 6:00 PM.)

According to the Bureau of Justice data I belched at you, only 27.6% of burglaries occur while a member of the household is home. Furthermore, only 26% of those instances where a household member is present actually result in violence.

Overall, 5% of burglaries result in assault (1.3% being aggravated, 3.7% being simple), 1.6% result in robbery, and 0.6% in rape. If all thieves were going out of their way to cause physical harm "because they enjoy it" I imagine even idiots could manage better than a 7.2% success rate.

You forget they also target the elderly who will generally be home at any given time

No, actually you forget that majority =/= all. What happened to that woman (and any victim of violent crime) is a tragedy, but tragedies like that are not the outcome of the majority of burglaries, which is, once again, the point you seem to have missed.

You can't see the forest for the trees, but that's fine. You do you, I'll just go have another beer. Toodle-oo.

Try telling that to the victim's families

You forgot you're not talking to someone anchored in the same reality as the rest of us. -.-

Sure. I would have no problem telling that to those families, especially seeing as they would probably realize that.
