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.
"The gun is the great equalizer... For it is the gun, that allows the meek to repel the monsters; Whom are bigger, stronger and without conscience, prey on those who without one, would surely perish."
Afternoon home invasion and on Easter Sunday, there is no respect anymore at all.
NOT LIVING IN FEAR, JUST READY!!!
I do not love the bright sword for its sharpness,
nor the arrow for its swiftness,
nor the warrior for his glory.
I love only that which they defend.
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.
Trust in God and keep your powder dry
"A heavily armed citizenry is not about overthrowing the government; it is about preventing the government from overthrowing liberty. A people stripped of their right of self defense is defenseless against their own government." -source
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.

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.
Walk softly ...
The Storm is here and is going to get worse. Be safe and armed out there....
Don"t let stupid be your skill set....
And Shepards we shall be, for Thee, my Lord, for Thee,
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand, So that our feet may swiftly carry out thy command,
And we shall flow a river forth to Thee, And teeming with souls shall it ever be,
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!
On body carry FTW.
Everything else is 911 response time away.
~~~Every house comes with 'safety locks'."I'm trying to figure out how to have safety locks on my door -- so scary, so scary."
In this case the homeowner actively disabled them AND then open the security door to allow herself to be overrun and taken down.
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.
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.
