are you sure your not related to Blart? all the advice you are being given is going in one ear and out the other. put the gun back in the safe and keep it there before you do something you can't say sorry and take it back.
"I cannot undertake to lay my finger on that article of the Constitution, which granted a right to Congress of expending, on objects of benevolence, the money of their constituents." -1792, James Madison
There are always too many Democratic, Republican and never enough U.S. congressmen.
One thing I will say is this,we are a community of like minded people who believe we have the god given right to be able to defend ourselves with the right tools from grievous bodily injuy or death.
Most Jurors have absolutely no gun handling experience or training and will believe anything a Cop or DA says about a firearm or a shooting because the Cop carries a gun and therefore must be an expert.Were looking at this situation as if you are sitting in the witness box explaining how the situation started and we are jurors,and its like that in all threads that somebody feels threatened enough to either draw,or look for the nearest escape route.
It's better to be judged by 43,927 gun owners than 12 little old ladies in a jury box

Well stated, Sir.
"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."
Also, let me say that I didn't post this to get the same thing said to me 150 times. If it's already been said, I've carefully read it and taken knowledge from it, and I don't need to hear it from someone else. 9 pages of everyone saying the same thing is really starting to irritate me.
THANK YOU, however, to everyone who has helped me in this thread by posting original and helpful replies. Your advice and words of wisdom are appreciated and have really caused me to think back upon this situation, and about situations in the future.

In this forum we are certainly for pointing out errors in someone's ways (and we see that frequently) but I hope we are also about encouraging and educating as well.
Let's let this one die so we can move on to the education and encouragement.
