"Gun control should mean hitting your target every time."
Please try to remember- I have a very dry sense of humor. It usually sounds mean, but isn't meant to be.

Good thing he had a heads up and a loaded gun in the house with enough foresight to retrieve his pistol before the door was breached.This is why I carry on me even inside my house,you may not have time to retrieve a gun in a back bedroom if your door is suddenly kicked open,since it is going to take a second for your brain to process the door kicked in before you think "gun" gotta get it,wheres it at,whats the combination etc.

Right there with ya. I 100% agree with the notion of packing at home. In fact, I tell newbies if they don't carry anyplace else, carry full time at home. I always answer the door with a gun on me, but not in sight. My impression is that the most likely time to have to use a handgun for defense is in the home. The number of home invasions with the residents in the house, in a year, is thousands of times the number of incidents where someone comes into a restaurant and starts shooting, or starts shooting up a mall, or something similar.
