Violence is not the answer. It is the question.


« on: December 28, 2012, 07:17:03 PM »

I know it's not in the cards, but all this gun ban talk has got me thinking.

Say the government confiscates and bans all weapons.

Aside from obtaining illegal assualt weapons (of which there will be a huge market), how can one feasibly protect their property from an intruder?

I think a home made flamethrower has merit. It would have to be well engineered.

Thoughts?

Keeping your doors and windows locked means they will be less likely to break in

This can't be a serious response.

We do have have two shotguns in our bedroom and I have my .40, wife has her 38 but, since we're not talking about guns..... I have a bayonet and a bowie knife mounted behind the speaker on my side of the bed. out of sight even to visitors but quick access for me in the middle of the night. Wife likes her kitchen knife.

Seriously bros this is a great question. I say people should stop watching so much tv and pounding: so much junk food and take up a martial art or some sort of self defense. Once a person moves with the confidence they can defend themselves if needed  everything changes. The bad guys pick different targets, the once target now not only is moving without fear, they now have the confidence and self realization to pursue their dreams that @ 1tine may have seemed to be out of their reach.

Yea bros its like that.

Clarification:

Mass riot. Mobs moving from house to house. Raping. Wrecking. Burning.

You don't have your gun anymore. (But, the mobs don't either...)

What weapon do you reach for?

A knife?

I have a tire buddy I would use on them. For those who don't know what a tire buddy is, it is a hard wood billy club with a band of steel wrapped around the last 3-4" of the end of it. Very effective.

Mass of people?  Nothing better than explosives and fire for deterrence.

thats funny cause i feel small also. But @least you heard me- that's a start. Now put down the video games and frosted flakes and get some training under your belt son. You will learn to rely on yourself instead of letting others run ur game.

I own a SureFire E2D LED Defender

Max output of 200 lumens to blind an assailant. Has 2 strike bezels: one for smashing things and one for use as a kubotan. I've flashed it at myself and friends to test it's effectiveness. If I shined it in your eyes in the dark, you wouldn't be able to see for a few minutes. Also, the crenelated strike bezel is sharp enough to rip through flesh. It's much much sharper than it looks in the picture
