Scenario: It’s the middle of the night. You, your family, and your dog are tucked in for the night and fast asleep. You hear glass break. Before you know it, someone is standing in your bedroom doorway pointing a gun your way. What do you do?
This often goes through my mind, especially due to the abundance of shootings that have happened recently, the decline of the economy, and people getting more desperate. I’ve also seen an abundance of tweets and Facebook posts about the “Right to Bear Arms”. You may find this post a tad controversial so please let me refer you to my site Disclaimer.
So back to my scenario. What do you do? How far would you go to protect your family? Do you just let this intruder take whatever he/she wants and harm your family?
There are so many people who are anti-guns. They feel we, human beings, do not deserve the right to bear arms. That guns are evil and should not be allowed in the general public’s hands.
Then there are those, like myself, who embrace the right to bear arms. Will protect what is theirs (family) until the death.
There are also those who truly should not have their hands on a gun but somehow do get them and that’s when tragedies happen.
So, what are you going to do in the event of an intruder? Someone is out to harm you, your family, and take what is yours!
Me? I embrace my right to bear arms, grab my gun, and PROTECT! Yes, I will not apologize if that offends you. I believe to protect my family. Someone has intruded into my home with intent to harm me and/or my family. I can not let this happen.
A while back we had a little scare in my neighborhood. I have aluminum baseball bats place strategically in separate rooms in my home. Why? Easy access if I can’t get to my gun. May seem a tad paranoid but I’d rather not be a statistic.
I often think of getting my permit to carry. With shootings happening outside of the home, one can not be prepared enough. I think about all those people in that movie theatre with no escape! How terrifying and tragic! I don’t want to be a victim!
Maybe someday I’ll pursue that.
Mind you, I don’t believe guns should be in the wrong hands. I believe, those who own should have to complete some sort of target practice training and possibly get recertified every year. However, this is only going to help those who legally own guns.
People say guns should be outlawed. This isn’t going to help anything because then you are going to have more crime because people will be getting guns illegally. Killing one another to get a gun.
I don’t know what the solution is to who can have or can not have guns, but I will say, again, I embrace my right to bear arms and am willing and able to protect what is mine.

Now I ask you, How Far Would You Go to Protect What is Yours? If you own, do you know how to use it? Are you willing and able to use it?
