The first that came into my mind when reading this story was: STUPID! If you hear your front door being knocked at 12:00 AM, there is a 99% that the person behind it is a criminal and not your neighbor in need of a bowl of sugar. Some people just live in a sugar coated World where they think evil is only present in the movies.

I carry my Glock where ever it is legal, especially at home. I usually don't go anywhere that it is illegal to take my gun with me.
Since it is always with me, when I open the door I have it, and I am the one that opens the door.
Stop whining and go do something that makes a difference!
If you think that I may be talking to you, then I am.

I am quite sane and I carry at home all the time except in bed.

I can't sprint much anymore to go get the gun if needed. Besides, it feels just like wearing my multitool all the time.
Feel naked without it.

The only time I'm not carrying is when I'm naked. And even then there's no guarantee I'm unarmed...

In our area everything is reported as gang related! If a motorcycle club rides through it's a "Gang" and the police need to shut down this, that and the other thing, tho they never seem to break any laws...Teenagers are always reported as "Teen Gang"...I am not say there are not street gangs and criminals here, but I think that the media supports our ever climbing police budget by reporting everything as "gang related". We just got a local tax increase to form a new "Gang Task Force" complete with armored personnel carry with battering ram on the front, and 6 new officers to focus on it...we are a relatively small town (in 2006, the last year data is available that I could find anyway..we had one of our worst years for murder...there were 2) I wish they would just concentrate on arresting those who break the law and then prosecuting them, rather then trying to use "fear" and scare tactics to increase their budget. A criminal is a criminal...not because he is hispanic, or dresses a certain way, or has a life style one finds objectionable ( but lives a legal life), or associates with those one might find questionable...a criminal is criminal because he actually breaks the law... My 2 cents...

Until the night he came out of the shower to find a burglar armed with a knife had come through his window. Yes you can fire a revolver through a plastic bag..
