Have you ever had to defend yourself or your family from somebody by using a firearm? Just wondering.

    I "used it" but that doesn't mean I shot anyone with it.

    No, and I hope I never need to, but I'm prepared if I do which is more that can be said for a majority of society. Ignorance is a lame excuse for not being prepared.

    Only a couple of times in three years while on duty as a military policeman.

    I have needed one and not had it; a sad situation all the way around. Two bad guys robbed and car jacked me with a sawed off shotgun! By the grace of GOD I'm here to talk about it! I bought my first hand gun after that incident!

    When seconds count, the police are only minutes away.

    That's our "reliable" MSM! (main [lame?] stream media) Like the Oregon mall shooter stopped by an armed citizen. Only a brief mention. Mostly how many died, what kind of gun he had and his mental profile!
    A foreign national on a student visa was shooting (no fatalities!) on a college campus. When confronted by armed (3 I think) criminal justice students, gave up immediately. Never made the Nat'l news!
    ....and people say our media isn't biased! Yeah! Right!

    Bubba you are probably right. But that is what is already being done. When gun deaths are reported, no distinction is made by news agencys or gov reports, between defenceive killings and homicides. and noone reports crimes that did not happen because it was stopped by someone with a gun.

    Though I agree, I think it's best to let that dog lie. I figure the "gun grabbers" would just "victimize" the intruder to make him/her just another senseless killing/shooting.
    Remember, those people are firm believers in 9-1-1 "Dial-A-Prayer"! and only cops/soldiers should have guns.

    I think when wayne LaPiere makes a public appearance he should bring with him some people who have used a firearm to defend themselves and their family from imminent life threatening danger. Testimonials have a lot of impact.
    Maybe that woman recently who retreated to a closet with her kids and then had to shoot the intruder.

    I have a sticker on my front and back door. It states "THE OWNER OF THIS PROPERTY IS ARMED AND THERE IS NOTHING INSIDE WORTH RISKING YOUR LIFE FOR". Below the words shows a side view photo of a handgun.
    If I removed those warning stickers and put the owner of this property doesn't believe in guns or other weapons for self defense, I would probably be robbed within a year.

    Yes, twice.
    One home invasion at 2 am, about 15 yrs ago. Several shots were fired at him, apperently missing.

    Recently, attacked by someone in a drunken stuper. He sobered up quickly when I pulled my pistol. I'm glad I did not have to fire it.
