    BG's never surprise me

    Four robbers subdue two people and ransack a home at 2pm on Easter Sunday.

    2 Dressed In Scrubs Rob Home - Houston News Story - KPRC Houston

    I spent my Easter Sunday sitting down to a huge home cooked meal, talking with my aunts, uncles and adult cousins about work, politics, and sports, and chasing my little 4 and 6 year old cousins around the yard and the house. But, high and out of reach of the kids, my Glock oversaw all the festivities as well.

    KTCameraman How you described your Easter is the best we can do for ourselves, and hope for the best for those who are not as enlightened as the rest of us.

    Afternoon home invasion and on Easter Sunday, there is no respect anymore at all.

    My Easter was spent with my kids, also. My XD never left my person, until bedtime.

    The world we live in is becoming more violent, daily.

    When you say high and out of reach of your kids,means that you are probably several seconds away from your weapon,could you access your firearm if some thugs appeared out of nowhere and happened to be between you and wherever your gun was stashed.

    I would never assume that's true at all. When my son was about 3 yrs old he would not stay out of the cookies, so I put them on top of the refrigerator. There is no visible means for him to get to them. However, when I walked back in the room, there he was sitting on top of the refrigerator eating the cookies.

    We never figured out any feasible way he got up there.

    Second, if it's not on you, it's not handy.

    Last Christmas eve I interupted a car break in in my Uncle's church parking lot. I didn't have my Oregon permit, so I was not carrying. The permit status was the first thing on my new years resolution list.

    The neighbor mentions security locks, they won't help a thing if you open the door. It's real scary when you have home invasions while the people are home. That's why I carry at home. I'd rather have my weapon on me than "safely" stored somewhere. IMHO!

    Bingo. ^^

    On body carry FTW.
    Everything else is 911 response time away.

    "I'm trying to figure out how to have safety locks on my door -- so scary, so scary."
    Every house comes with 'safety locks'.
    In this case the homeowner actively disabled them AND then open the security door to allow herself to be overrun and taken down.
    Stupid.

    Had she instead looked through the peephole or out a window then she'd have seen trouble dressed in costume, and by that would have left her safety door safely locked.
    Simple things add up to mean a lot.

    what happened in that situation and do you believe it would have been different had you been armed?...

    i am not trying to talk you out of being armed...i know someone somewhere is dying to label me a brady baby...i am asking a legitimate question...

    Agreed bnb...Your question is legitimate, and I personally would never think to label you or a person who asks same as you did to be a Brady sympathizer.
