When there is trouble. call 911.
Having a gun in the house is too dangerous. If you have one, it should be locked up. Honest folks don’t need one.
You might remember that the founding fathers of this country gave us the 2nd Amendment to protect ourselves not from each other, but from an egregious central government. When they take away your gun, they take away your freedom.
One of the first things Adolph Hitler did when he took charge was confiscate all firearms. History has shown that every dictator has first disarmed the people. Every leader that institutes gun control wants to be a dictator.
We have police to protect us. They carry a gun to protect themselves, not you. One guy said, “I carry a gun because a cop is too heavy.”
One of the safest, least violent countries in the world is Switzerland, where there is a gun in every household. When a young man is discharged from his compulsory military service, he takes his gun home and is required to keep it in shooting condition. Hitler did not invade them during the 1940’s. Also, in 1940, one of the Japanese Generals discouraged an invasion of California, saying there would be an American behind every blade of grass with a gun.
They do have strict gun regulations in Switzerland, but a citizen is allowed to buy a handgun or even a machine gun.
Every country today that has a dictator also does not allow the people to own guns.
Regulations are put in place to keep criminals from having guns. Yet the government takes guns from honest folks. The criminals won’t give up their guns.
When someone breaks into your house, steals your car, or threatens your loved ones, the average response time for a 911 call is 23 minutes. That gives you plenty of time to find your gun, unlock it, load it, and point it at the perpetrator. The response time of a .45 caliber hand gun is 1350 feet per second.
Any time any leader of a country says he wants gun control, what he really means is he wants control of the people. When they have no defense, there is no liberty. That is how countries are taken over from within.
99.9% of the U.S. population that own guns of any type are honest, law-abiding citizens. In many situations, a gun may be a life saver. Guns don’t kill people. People kill people with any weapon that may be available.
To quote Thomas Jefferson: ”Those who hammer their guns into plows will plow for those who do not…”
