Who cares if they are unarmed! They shouldn’t be on his property. Do you want to.wait to ask them if they are armed, finding that you waited too long and are now the one dead?! This thread kills me. 08 my my my years of lt joe kenda shirt Hard to believe adults are quite this stupid. What I’m saying is that even if you assume any intruders on your property are armed, this is not representative of the reasonable or responsible actions to take to keep yourself safe

and neither is the preemptive justification of lethal force that ya’ll are pitching as a way to validate your enthusiasm for using/owning a gun. You’re not concerned with the safety of this child or anyone else, just a hypothetical which justifies the continued fantasy in which your gun makes you a hero. So they yell “we’re unarmed”, then you just let them on into the house and let them have what they want? Naa, I’ma shoot your ass for coming in my house just like I’d molly whop someone over the head with a baseball bat too. 08 my my my years of lt joe kenda shirt Mother fuckers will learn about consequences of their actions if they roll up on my house. Love the false hypotheticals ya’ll love to throw out
as if the idea of waiting around with a loaded gun looking to shoot someone is totally reasonable. I’ll just assume pointing out this is a strawman fallacy is a lost cause, given how obviously the motivation here is founded in irrational fears. No, the point isn’t whatever you make up in your head about how you think the shit is going to go down: those are just you fantasizing about being a hero (or me getting robbed/killed; not exactly a Christian attitude either way). The point is that assuming you’re at a constant risk of being murdered is irresponsible gun ownership, especially when you ignore the real risk of suicides and accidents that occur far more frequently than home invasions (including the ones where no one gets hurt).
Take it and hang out
