Asked: How about conservatives find a more reasonable means to keep their families safe than guns?

How about a neighborhood watch, a security alarm, a dog, or locks on your door. It's not that complicated.

If you exclude natural causes of death and consider only deaths caused by injury, gun violence is the second-leading cause of death in America.

None of those things mean **** to a criminal that has a gun.



Answered:
Sure. What the hell.



Answered:
yeah, an alarm will stop an armed assailant from hurting you loved ones….



Answered:
Oh yeah that's great!And then we can politely ask the gun wielding thug to leave when he breaks in right??



Answered:
You could also use stun or tranquiliser guns, or bats, or handcuffs, there are plenty of ways to defend yourself.



Answered:
Security systems can be circumvented. Idiot



Answered:
I think they're crazy not to want more control. Its to the point where it shouldn't matter what they want.20 children lie dead.



Answered:
Second leading?

Hmm, one would think that you would be leading a crusade against the first leading cause, not the second.

Funny.



Answered:
because you liberals continue to say neighborhood watch captains are wackos
because security alarms only protect my home and i am not there all the time
because you liberals already refuse to let me have a dog that will actually provide protection
because, again, i am not always at home



Answered:
Give me your address…we'll see how your neighborhood watch does while I'm walking out of your house with all of your possessions, including your wife.We'll see how your dog does after I put a bullet in his head…. Catch the drift?

There's only ONE way to defend yourself, superior firepower!

I have an idea:keep Planned Parenthood and other abortionists from killing my grandchildren.



Answered:
Your safer alternatives cost more and they would rather just do it the cowardly easy way even if it means innocent victims would be injured or killed. Don`t be a door to door salesperson, it`s very hazardous.



Answered:
How about you tell that to this family.

Neighborhood watch isn't going to sit outside your door 24/7, alarms can be avoided, dogs can be avoided, and locks only keep out honest folk,,, what are you going to do when the idiot gets around all those,, sit in the corner and cry while he rapes your wife and daughter?



Answered:
My neighbor's home got broken into.They didn't have trouble breaking in through a door with a deadbolt lock.They didn't have trouble shooting his dog and tying him up.

All of the things that you listed aren't very reliable.Neighborhood watch?Any idiot can get by those guys.They're only there to call the police.If the police have a 15 minute response time, you're as good as dead.Guard dogs aren't that good unless they're trained.Dogs can also get shot or poisoned.An
alarm system doesn't stop a guy high on meth.If the cops get to your house when you're dead, that doesn't really help.Locks on your door?Ever heard of a lock pick?Or a drug addict (who can get through anything)?

It is perfectly reasonable to own a gun to protect people's families.I can use one correctly.We don't have to worry about normal people owning guns.We have to worry about criminals owning guns.The problem is that criminals have a tendency to disregard the law.So if we say that 'guns are illegal', will criminals care?If they're planning on robbing a store or killing someone, I don't think that a gun charge on top of that is going to bother them.A black market for guns already exists.Why would it cease to exist if we outlawed it?Did that work for alcohol during Prohibition?Does it work for all of the drugs in our country?

We have the Second amendment.If don't like it tough shyt.
