I just feel bad for the unlucky bastard who forcibly enters my private residence; he/she will only briefly hear the sound of the trigger mechanism releasing the hammer before becoming incapacitated. The way I see it, if you break into my house and put my family and I in danger, you signed your own death certificate the moment you made that conscious decision.

In my eyes, and I'm sure many others will agree: It is better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it.

I agree with that statement. Also i know this is very far fetched, and i know its not like its right around the corner. But our country and people have had their liberties taken away before. We've also engaged in a civil war before, and in my 30 yrs on this earth ive seen where countries have changed regimes, to a militaristic, theocratic, socialist, and/or democratic govts over night, but i believe as an American i think most of us believe that if that situation ever arises where our government becomes a tyrant, or our way of life and liberty is threatened by enemies FOREIGN or DOMESTIC, then its our rights and DUTIES to defend ourselves and our way of life. Again im not the guy thinking thats right around the corner but i think its in the back of most americans mind that own a firearm.
