...They beat her up, she is in her late 60s, duck tape her, dragged her around by her hair, and robbed her. After they left she was able to slip out
of her coat that had all the duck tape on it, and go next store... She was beat up pretty good.
Please give me some credit...
Now, I'm guessing that you're a competent owner and user of firearms - yes/no??
I don't know...28 years of military service and I still go to Afghanistan now as a contractor....I think the term competent doesn't fully tell how
good I am with firearms.
Because if the answer is yes, you would well know that your wife isn't going to develop "pretty good skill" within the evening...??
While you being an owner of firearms, it never occured to you previously that your partner may have a need to protect herself and at least be familiar
with the use of your firearms??
No, she knows how to shoot, but I never really practiced home evasion scenarios with her. Now I practice getting out of bed in the middle of the
night, pitch black, and get my gun extremely fast. For her it was get the gun from the kitchen, take it out of the small gun case, turn on the laser
and point it at the front door....after about 30 times she got rather quick, but I know it is something to continue to practice...this was a part of
in my face reality that I realized I never worked with my wife on.
You are already armed - if the content of your OP was the convincer, what were your reasons for being armed in the first place??
...again, I have my doubts about the OP.
Look at my ATS history... enough said...I got a little more integrity than to make up some story for stars, or whatever...
My point is we debate this and I am armed, but it is nothing like a reality check to basically take all the armchair constitutional lawyers we seem to
have on ATS and see that they are full of it...
