2nd Amendment v. DC - this lady gets it
Posted by: McQ on Friday, March 21, 2008

And she illustrates, quite well, why DC v Heller is important:

Exactly. If she unlocks it, loads it (you’ll not there’s no ammo in that case, so she’d have to find the shells), and shoot the person who broke into her home, she broke the law. She might not get charged with murder (though I wouldn’t place money on that not happening), but she’s be charged under the gun laws. And convicted, because technically she DID break the law.

This is the part of the DC law that usually isn’t mentioned.

Yup. It isn’t a gun, it’s a club.

And in the calculus of a fight, all else being equal, gun beats club.

I hate to say this but it’s a law that needs to be broken on a regular basis.

Personally I keep my Sig 380ACP in a "Sequiam Biobox" in my nightstand...locked and loaded with frangibe rounds in the chamber and the Mag. The Biobox is anchored to the nightstand so you’d have take the nightstand or break it to rip off the Biobox which would take a sledge hammer or a cutting torch to open.

Only I can open the Biolox with a fingerprint scan. Not my wife. Not me kids. Its better, by far, than a "trigger lock" and complies with at least part of the DC law. It takes about 5 seconds to swipe my forefinger and unlock the box.

I’d rather have my wife and kids alive and me in jail than having them dead.

Fortunately, I now live it Texas where these weapon security measures are common sensical and not government mandated. :-)

Of course in Texas, with an easily obtainable concealed carry permit, the gun is only home when I am.:-)

Sheesh,

When are y’all going to get a comment system that allows a few minutes to edit typos?

Good grief, RR - it has a preview button. That’s where you’re supposed to edit it. And you can take as long as you like while you do that.

Only you can hit the "Add Comment" button. ;)

But what happens if you’re not there? Or you and your wife go out for a night without the kids?

McQ,

You’re absolutely right. It’s just a complaint from a poor writer and a poor editor. But...there are comment systems that "do" allow for "post comment" editing. Just saying... Even the ability to delete a post within 15 minutes might save us all a lot of grief. Especially from overwrought flame throwers.

Steverino,

Let’s be serious! You or I can’t protect ourselves or our families in all situations. The comment was based, in part, on my military background and continuing weapons training. In other words, I would not advise the untrained to follow my lead or expect them to believe it’s the ultimate security answer.


My wife hates guns. She’d, I think, rather be raped or killed than have an accessible weapon in the house without me around. My kids were only allowed supervised weapons access until they were either 18 and on their own or they complied with my rules in my home. As is always the case, as adults one won’t have a weapon in her house whereas the other owns more firearms than I do.

That’s why many of us call handguns "personal defense" weapons and not "home defense" weapons. Not everyone is equally trained or motivated to possess or to use them. That I’m trained to protect my family and others is just "value added" to my ability to protect myself.

Kinda libertarian methinks.

I was being serious, and I never once said that I can protect my family in all situations. That’s why I had my wife learn to shoot a gun, along with my kids when they were old enough.

To each his own.

Steverino,

I wasn’t questioning you sincerity. Both of our kids, now adults, and my wife have been trained in the use of handguns. Old saw, you can bring a horse to water, but...

I thought your point was "you can’t be everywhere". My poinr was, "you’re right" but... you also can’t make a horse drink.


We do what we can and move on. As I read elsewhere today; "Cops aren’t bodyguards". So True.
