I'm gonna guess before you spoil it.. I know nothing about guns.

1. Don't aim it at other people you don't intend to shoot.
2. Keep the safety on
3. Don't keep one in the chamber
4. Don't keep the clip in

Edit: Also, curious if you call the cops in your break in scenario or if you just plan to handle it yourself and call afterward. You didn't mention anything about their involvement.

Great guesses.

1. Always assume a weapon is loaded. (My avatar is Terry Kath. Accidently killed himself because of thinking a gun was unloaded. Clip was out but a round was still in the chamber)
2. Never have a firearm aimed at anything you are not willing to destroy.
3. Keep your booger finger off of the bang switch until you are 100% ready to actually shoot.
4. Always be aware of what's in the background.

Sure. I have a phone in my bedroom. If I knew a stranger was in my home I'd retrieve my Glock, shout out a warning, and then dial 911. The nearest police station to my home is...... actually, I don't even know how far away it is. I have a fire station about a half mile away, so that's pretty cool.

Google: Articulation.

Don't cop out. I'd love to keep up the discussion with lots of real words, but if you want to bail, that's fine too.

This is strictly my opinion but when a break and enter criminal gets shot to death I just feel bad for the criminal dick move to use a gun as self defense over your ****ing TV or some **** just call the cops

And more heinous crimes are overwhelmingly committed by people close to you not by random break-ins

The **** if I'm waiting around to see what they want.

I've had somebody try to rob me at gun point. I never felt I needed a gun afterwards.

But god damn guns are cool. You could blow somebody's brains all over the place with a gun.

I'm guessing you're referring to the late Jack Chick. :laughing:

(i) Lie to the press:
- as on inaugaration day, when he described rain as sunshine.
- as when he described chaos, confusión and protests over his ill-conceived travel ban as "going nicely"
(ii) Lie about the press:
- as when he says, "All negative polls are false."
- as when he accuses them of writing "fake news." For the record, "fake news" are deliberately fabricated stories to serve as click bait. Even if mainstream reporting is biased or inaccurate, it's not "fake news."
- describing the press as "the enemy of the people". A term like this is a red flag, haha, to anyone familiar with Stalin-era Russia. It's a very sinister, non-specific accusation, which, if unchallenged, allows for all manner of persecution.
(iii) Muzzle the press:
- White House blocks CNN, other news organizations from press briefing - Feb. 24, 2017

Dan Rather is such a famous US newsman that even I've heard of him. Here's what he posted yesterday about the Trump admin's treatment of his profession. For a guy who's been in the business for decades, it's a pretty damning condemnation:-

Quote:

The time for normalizing, dissembling, and explaining away Donald Trump has long since passed. The barring of respected journalistic outlets from the White House briefing is so far beyond the norms and traditions that have governed this republic for generations, that they must be seen as a real and present threat to our democracy. These are the dangers presidents are supposed to protect against, not create.

There has been a wall of unbending support from virtually every Republican in Congress, and even some Democrats. Do you maintain that an Administration that seeks to subvert the protections of our Constitution is fit to rule unchecked? Or fit to rule at all?

This is an emergency that can no longer be placed solely at the feet of President Trump, or even the Trump Administration. This is a moment of judgement for everyone who willingly remains silent. It is gut check time, for those in a position of power, and for the nation
