    What weapons do you have on display? Swords...

    Three teenaged home invaders, the youngest ones armed with handguns.. the 18 year old grabbed a sword taken from inside the house.

    What'd they keep from their looted booty? Chicago Bulls caps!

    They'll learn what's important in prison... and be more adept when they get out, I'm sure...

    Sadly none anymore,I just don't feel comfortable doing that these days. So glad to have experienced days long gone where I could carry a rifle to school in the rack of my pickup and no one blinked an eye. Or when everyone displayed there guns in the living room behind a glass doored gun case with unlocked doors! I too now have to open my safe to enjoy my guns and I really rarely show anyone where my safe is.SAD!

    Just my petite red-head wife with the S&W .357 magnum revolver she carries.

    I carry a gun, because a Cop is too heavy.

    There are lots of obstacles between the point of entry and Uncle Lucius's sword he carried while with the 96th OVI.

    "The brothers, Philip Alderman, 16, and Tyler Alderman, 14...Thomas and Philip Alderman have criminal histories, including burglaries, robberies, assaults and batteries, the Sheriff's Office said. Thomas was also previously arrested for first-degree arson in Pinellas County, according to the Sheriff's Office."

    We should coddle them some more...It's just a phase that they are going through...They'll outgrow it any day now...Said the poor excuse for a parent.

    Nothing on display except for Flow Blue Objects my wife collects and pictures of our Granddaughter. All offensive and defensive devices are out of sight other than what I have on me under my shirt.

    I don't display any of my handguns or my shotgun, they are locked up but I do have my NCO sword mounted on my rec-room wall. It probably could be taken down if someone wanted to badly enough, but there are knives accessible in my kitchen drawers that could prove just as lethal. That's why I lock my bedroom door and keep one handgun available while sleeping.

    If someone has to come into my house in order to gain any access to weapons such as swords, baseball bats or kitchen knives, chances are pretty fair that they've already lost to the dogs.
