Why I own a gun

There is a manhunt going on a few miles from my house. I guess five shitbags boosted a van and were involved is some sort of shooting. 3 have been captured and 2 are still on the loose 1 is considered armed and dangerous. I am relaxing watching the latest Borne movie with my trusty Sig laying beside my chair. Now I have a question for the gun control assholes that post here. What would your state of mind be in this situation? Would you be relaxed or would you be peering out the windows hoping the cops protect your house?

Rural Iowa. Home Invasion from escaped convict. Convict breaks into elderly farmer's home...holds them hostage 4hrs, Farmer gets to gun and ends the situation.
Obviously, only paranoid people need guns, right....crazy to think it could happen where you live.

http://www.kcci.com/news/central-iow...f/-/index.html

BEDFORD, Iowa —Law enforcement authorities said Tuesday that an Iowa couple shot and killed an escaped inmate after being held in their home for four hours.

Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation Special Agent Mitch Mortveldt said Rodney Long forced his way into the couple's home at 2609 Highland Avenue about 10:15 p.m. and held them for the next four hours.

The couple said Long was armed with a semi automatic handgun. He had also taken their phones.

The couple, ages 71 and 66, decided to defend themselves, Mortveldt said. They were not seriously hurt in the incident.

About 2 a.m., the couple called 911 to report the shooting. An Iowa State trooper was on the road nearby and responded immediately to the home.

The trooper found Long dead face down on the kitchen floor of the couple's home.

Authorities said they searched 16 square miles of the surrounding area in the past several days, including conducting three searches of the couple's property.

Authorities said the deputy shot by Long on Sunday, Dan Wychoff, is in stable condition at an Omaha hospital and is expected to make a full recovery.

A autopsy on Long is planned.

From what I have read in this thread that does not happen very often so there is no reason to be prepared~

This elderly farm couple probably wouldn't be able to even make the gun work in a real life and death situation, they're not proven combat veterans...maybe they are.



This asshole had broken out of prison, shot a deputy, stole a cop car, rolled it during a chase....and had been being searched for several days.

There was a similar incident where I live a year ago. That guy shot at 2 cops and went on foot after an accident and had tracks in the snow a few feet from 2 homes of friends of mine and had been in one of their barns.

These people didn't need a gun, they probably should have just brewed him a cup of tea and negotiated with him.

I live in a very calm neighborhood.

I will always be prepared, and ready and willing to defend my family.

Failing to prepare, is preparing to fail.

Unfortunately we live in a country where there are crazies off their meds, and desperate lunatics, and if you aren't willing to do what it takes to defend your family, then you shouldn't have a gun. If you don't know how to properly store your gun, how to clean it, and how to make sure that your child cant just wield it out and mistakenly kill someone, then you shouldn't have one.

Fortunately, for my family at least. My gun is where only I or my wife can get to it, we are the only one who knows the combination, and the ammo is separate from where the weapon is.

A weapon is a great thing to have but its a great great responsibility.

Of all the reasons to own a gun, "protection" has always struck me as the most ridiculous.
I guess jsp will be along shortly to say that this guy defending himself with a gun was ridiculous.

Should have just called 911, right?

You imagine their arthritis filled fingers shakingly trying to dial 911 on that thing?

Fail.....

All they really had to do is post a sign saying that their home is a gun-free zone. The criminal would have obeyed the sign and moved on.

This happened in my state yet here I am, calmly going about my day without a loaded gun at my side. I haven't even looked out the window for a fugitive once today.

Waking up in the middle of the night to an intruder you only have seconds to prepare, your combination and ammo will take precious seconds to prepare you for it.

Main thing is can you get armed in time while not shaking and fumbling around in time.
