An intruder breaks into your home with an illegal gun. How's that steak knife doing?

Sometimes I wonder why Progressives and Democrats are such peasants who want a big controlling Government to run their lives. They watch as the police come to our homes after the intruder has killed everyone.

Maybe you have missed almost every mass killing, or missed all the killings from intruders in our homes.
THE COPS COME AFTER THE KILLING IS OVER!

Our schools, our homes, etc. need to be protected by every means possible including THE GUN!

I hope citizens of the U S are given access to the “ latest “ 60 year old technology as in a marvelous thing called a house alarm, apparently nasty gun wielding burglars don’t like them , maybe also Americans should consider moving countries as seemingly one cannot walk the streets or sleep in their own house because of the constant threat of being shot by a vast assortment of gun wielding fellow citizens

It's truly amazing how gun control fanatics single out the gun as the only weapon of interest.

I guess they want the killers to be using illegal bombs to do their mass killings.

It's not the weapon! Use your brain and address the real causes for murder.

I choose to not allow fear to rule my life. I've never locked my doors in my entire life. I'm six feet tall, I've worked outdoors all my life, I'm in good shape and I'm taking it for granted that if it came to a physical confrontation I would prevail. If someone with a gun was determined to kill me it wouldn't be difficult but I'll tell you a secret, you're probably more likely to die from violence than I am and the statistics show that. If you have a handgun in your home, that gun is far more likely to kill a member of your family than it is an intruder. You can pretend otherwise but that's the reality.

Like I said, I'm not going to live a life of fear. I've made it to the age of 63 with that attitude and I expect to go a lot further, but I'd rather live a short life than a long one spent suffering in constant fear because for me that wouldn't be a life worth living.

I've had a lifelong interest in psychology and for many years have been particularly interested in how we humans are manipulated by corporations and government and I am acutely aware that fearful people are the most vulnerable to manipulation. Fear is the greatest manipulator and causes blindness in that many people are so afraid that they can't see past it and use reason and logic. Next time you're watching Fox news, notice how many alarming stories you're being told. Notice how often they call for fear. Don't let them manipulate you.

The Russians are everywhere. Even on a site with 20 or less regular members...

A red herring breaks into your home and makes a stupid nonsensical argument that nobody is arguing for.
