Here in Indy we are on track for 150 murders THIS YEAR. Last night guy walks in a gas station and in front of 3 people shoots the clerk in the head. He is still alive but you never fully recover from a head shot.
Also two guys are leaving a gas station and bump into each other at the door. They each take a few steps and both open fire. 20 rounds are fired and 3 people are wounded.
For those of you on here that are paid by the Brady Bunch or Bloomberg to spread the anti program, explain to me WHY I shouldn't be locked and loaded at all times?

Anti-gunner: ...But is a television set worth a human life???

Well, my wife's life and my life are absolutely priceless to me. An attacker who threatens those lives in any way? Not worth a brass penny.
But I'm not going to shoot someone who breaks into my house to steal my TV or Xbox unless he becomes a threat to us. I'd much rather buy a new tv than have to deal with the repercussions of a shooting, Castle Doctrine notwithstanding.
an area West of downtown Orlando called Pine Hills and known to most of us here as "Crime Hills", life does not seem to be worth much there. Very sad how this seems to be an almost daily event in that area of town, and another reason I am always armed to and from work in downtown Orlando. There are some bad people running around loose....everywhere.

Depends whose life and it depends who's paying, if I understand correctly.What's a life worth?
Statistically, dementia is one of the greatest defeatable threats to my loved ones. The solution is to fund charities that hunt for a cure. This will also reduces the total amount of family that has to go through it. I'm basically racing against odds.
It depends, the lives of my family and other innocents are priceless. The lives of say, the terrorists illegally traded a few days ago aren't worth the change I will use to buy my next cup of coffee.
As for the person breaking in to steal the TV, they better make that attempt when I am not home because come through my door uninvited and I am not taking the time to ask what you are there for - my response will be swift and brutal. There is no room for error when it comes to the safety of my family.
