What is it with the libs? Are you afraid to stand up in your own self defense in your own home? What on earth would you do with an intruder...ask him/her to wait a minute while you called the police?
It doesn't work that way and quite frankly, if guns are taken from us as law abiding citizens, I keep mine stashed away but handy. Especially at my age, a nice hand gun or rifle will discourage an intruder and I will pull the trigger without hesitation if I need to do so.
