Protecting Yourself And Your Family

One of the phrases that I’ve often heard from people who are aware and who are armed is “I hope I never have to defend myself”. You would expect that violence would be decreasing as we “evolved” (so the Liberals like to say). What I’ve noticed is that violence isn’t decreasing, it’s increasing at an alarming rate. What’s even worse is that I hear media people and the Liberals justifying what they claim to hate!

 

It’s why I have advised several people to either buy a firearm or if they don’t want to do that, befriend someone who does own firearms. The statistical need to defend yourself is increasing as the Liberals get more violent, justify more murder, justify more assaults and generally turn a blind eye to the violence and bloodshed of innocent law abiding citizens.

 

There are many "budget" firearms available however, I would not purchase a firearm just because of price. This is not an order of french fries! This is a tool which may save your life or your family's lives! How much is your life worth? How much is your family's lives worth? The money you save will be of little solace as you pull that trigger and hear a click instead of a boom. In the mean time, criminals may be getting the upper hand on you, your loved one or a family pet. Saving a few measely bucks on a firearm which is now a fancy paperweight wasn't such a "good" deal now, huh?

 

The same could be said for ammunition. I've often heard good people say that they bought the cheapest ammunition available. Is it reliable? Never mind that it may be "cheap". I will ask again, what is your life worth? What is your family's lives worth? Saving a few measely dollars on ammunition will be of little solace as you stand over the casket of your loved one. What will you say to your daughter who was abused because you wanted to save a few dollars on ammunition? Hopefully, you get my point.

 

The violence isn't decreasing, it is increasing! It has been increasing for about the past eight years. Add to that violent "protests", terrorism and a whole host of assaults, criminal activity, murders, rapes, muggings and car jacking and the world is getting scary! Then of course there are the illegals that seem to victimize law abiding citizens with impunity. To add insult to injury, the Liberal media ignores the victimization of law abiding citizens and instead focuses on the criminals and their sad story. 

 

Don't be surprised if in the act of defending yourself or your family, they make you out to be a "monster". It all goes with the territory. If heaven forbid you kill someone before or even after they harm you or your family, the Liberal media will tear you apart. They won't go after the criminal who was intending to victimize you, they will go after you. What a wonderful world we live in...

    Yeah, I have been increasingly moving to the idea of buying a gun or two for my own protection and protecting my family. With the way the world is shaping up today, I do not feel as comfortable as I once was. With people in the streets shooting people “just because”, I do not wish to take the chance

      You are not alone in your thinking. I have several female neighbors who live alone and I worry that thugs and criminals may attack or abuse them before I know about it or can come to their aid.

        The best protection they could get is a burglar alarm that uses a cell phone to report intrusions, no lines to cut. And keep it on ALL the time.

          One of the problems with a burglar alarm is that it calls the Police AFTER the home has been invaded. Assuming that the Police are not sitting outside your door, the time it takes them to arrive on scene can take several minutes. A LOT can happen in several minutes and I wouldn’t want to be or have my family be at the criminal’s mercy waiting for the Police to arrive. The other problem with an alarm is that most departments charge for false alarms.

            You are right! With my alarm which I think is common, I can instruct the alarm company to call Putin first, if I want. If home, how fast can you run next door?

              You can instruct your alarm to call Putin first? Vladimir Putin? If you are home and your home is broken into, attempting to run next door may have you running right into the perpetrators.

            woops! This does away with the false alarm charges. When I installed my alarm I put in three panic buttons which set off two sirens and calls out instantly. I doubt anyone will stay with all of that racket.

              Your alarm “calls out instantly”? Who does it call?

              The alarm company, they call the first number on the list I provide them.

              Maybe you could have them call Rev. Al Sharpton, Barack Obama, Uma Abedine, Hillary Clinton or some other Democrat who hates the Police and see how fast they respond… ;-)

      If you get a gun for home, and/or if you carry it - get insurance. One incident and it can bankrupt you even if you are in the right.

        If a weapon is carried, it requires a permit in most areas. In some areas you cannot get a permit to carry a weapon unless you are a criminal. As far as insurance goes, I would have to agree that the civil liability is such that the Liberals will sue the snot out of you regardless of whether you are right or not. Unfortunately, society wants victims and makes more allowances for those who break the law than those who abide by it.

          The best news after an incident is that if you survive the $350k to beat the criminal charges if it is not a justifiable shooting, then the family comes after you in a civil suit. This isn’t a liberal thing, it’s an ambulance charger thing. Additionally, not a monetary issue – criminals have familys. Down here in the occupied territory, if you shoot a Mex. they have hundreds of pissed off relatives wanting to thank you for killing Jose. (I know, a stereotype)
          My insurance company covers everything, even the bail bond and all experts that you will definitely need.

            Beat the criminal charges? Sounds like guilty but, getting off anyway. You say that it’s not a Liberal thing, I would wholeheartedly disagree. You believe your insurance company will cover everything, famous last words. Remember that a Spurt is just a drip under pressure and an EX is a has been. As I have said before, lethal force is only justified IF lethal force is used against you.

    The liberals are having a ball watching Americans fight each other. They want us to get guns and shoot each other over nothing. What the liberals call “nothing” is protecting our families,they’re not fooling us with their lies.
    The liberals wants to bestow fear in buying guns for protection,using their propaganda that it’s too dangerous and illegal to own.
    Yes crime is on the increase and the liberals will make sure it keeps climbing during Mr. Trump’s presidency.
    I will not answer anyone asking if I owned a gun. They may be “closet” liberals who may try to confiscate it through their illegal means.

      My license and license plate show that I have a CCW permit so I will answer anyone who asks. If they attempted to take it away illegally they may find that they only get a bit of lead….

        OMG – A sign on your car that says ’I’m armed, kill me first’? Not really — I’m going to have to hunt for the report a defense shooting expert put out. In it, he broke down the response times from when an assault started and how long it took the average person to respond. Most people are dead, they can’t respond fast enough!

          Apparently you either didn’t read my comment or you weren’t able to understand it. Ohio law states that when a LEO runs my registration, it will let him/her know IMMEDIATELY that I have a CCW permit. There is no “sign” and I don’t tell people unless they specifically ask me. The fact that people die should tell you that terrorism is a serious matter. Maybe people dying doesn’t bother you, it does me.
