What "OP" do you keep referring to? I posted the OP and I assure you it has nothing to do with any lady or scenario.
It was a question I asked to other gun people, regarding their preferred carry ammo. If you don't have a recommendation, that is fine too. You don't
have to reply to every single thread that discusses something you are personally against.
We get it, you don't like guns. I do. And since they're perfectly legal in the Constitutional abiding parts of the nation, I will continue to
own/build/posses/carry and do whatever else within the scope permitted by the Constitution.
Laws are OK too, provided they don't infringe on a guaranteed and enumerated right.
It's not defined as 'wherever' or 'whenever' either. You better know the specific laws in your state; at home, in public or private and under
what circumstance you are allowed to defend yourself with a deadly weapon. The laws vary from state to state.
Not true from where I stand. My State is stand your ground/castle doctrine. I have no duty to retreat, although some people living in nanny states do.
I can use deadly force without retreat in any location if I feel my life or another is at risk of serious harm/disfigurement or death.
FYI, all firearms are considered deadly weapons, by law.
Assault with a deadly weapon with intent to commit severe bodily harm is confined to the rarest of circumstance.
I wouldn't call it "rare" but it is unlikely that any one specific person will face a deadly threat. However, there are plenty of deadly threats each
and every day in this country. I have decided to be prepared for such a threat, because the cost of carrying a firearm isn't a big deal to me. It
isn't a nuisance, and in fact I prefer it. The cost of not being prepared is something I'm not willing to live with.
Even now as I type on ATS I am armed. If an intruder comes busting through my front door, I will be able to act. What would you do? Keep in mind the
intruder won't wait for you to go and get your favorite shotgun (and probably load it, too).
