Gun

Recommended Posts

Surprise is the best form of attack,.if you are going to have a gun keep it strictly to yourself, .if a potential robber wants to rob you bad enough and he knows you have a gun it may back fire on you,...ive read most of these posts and there really are some ignorant ( as in unknowing ) people on here, in a panic situation will you be in control ? i seriously doubt it,.will you really be able to walk tall after killing someone ? ,.

In a panic situation and you have nothing you are in more control than if you had a gun?? Will you be walking tall with your family dead and you did nothing to prevent it ? Some people are smart enough to plan ahead. Apparently you are not.

Hmmmm ...... let's think about this.

One robber with gun, one victim without...... chances of anyone getting shot, possible.

One robber with gun, one victim with gun.... chances of anyone getting shot, incredibly high.

Which is best?

Let's also think about this: :o

One robber with gun, one victim without.....chances of victims getting shot, possible.

One robber with gun, one victim with gun.... chances of robber getting shot instead, possible. :D

You sound like the type of person who is looking for a reason to kill somebody.

I hope that I never need to cross your path.

You seem like a real charmer.

So basically your advice then, to all those who wish to protect their family (i think that's everyone), is to go out and get a gun? Have you thought that through to where that takes us? Do you think that the world would be a safer place if we all had guns?

Studies have found that the level of gun ownership world-wide has a direct correlation with murder and suicide rates and specifically to the level of death by gunfire.

The United States has the greatest level of domestic gun ownership.

In the U.S. for 2001, there were 29,573 deaths from firearms (Suicide 16,869; Homicide 11,348; Accident 802; Legal Intervention 323; Undetermined 231).

In the U.S. for 2004, there were 29,569 firearm deaths and 64,389 non fatal firearm injuries. That's 100,000 casualties. Everyone worries about Iraq but the real carnage is happening right at home.

In 2002 in the U.S., 1,202 women were killed by their intimate partners, accounting for 30 percent of the 4006 women murdered that year. 700 women were killed by intimate partners using guns. The same year, 175 men were killed by intimate partners.

I'd hate to see U.S. style gun culture creep into Isaan.

Once it takes over, as in the U.S., it'll be far too late for redemption. How could the largest number of guns in private hands of any country in the world with 60 million people owning a combined arsenal of over 200 million firearms be eradicated?

Where did you get that from? :D

Anyway you don't have to worry about me....nor I, neither my wife have a gun! :D

But it does'nt mean that I'm totally against people who want to have one for home protection.

Many live on remote farms away from villages and far from police, and with a nice car, house and more, are often a preferred target for the bad boys. :D

Most Thai people in my area have gun(s) some for hunting and many for protection, this partly because of beeing close to the Cambodian border in an area with a history of kmehr bandits.

I wish you all well - if you want to have a gun........or if you even don't want to think about it :D

These people you talk of... they have decided themselves to live in these remote places with their nice cars (and more), knowing that they are making themselves a target, right? Nobody forced them. And yet they would do anything to protect their family? Isn't it a contradiction? Ok, you could say people shouldn't be scared away by the bad elements, but is it worth putting your family at risk on a matter of principle? If you want to fight against these bad people and resort to killing rather than move, i would have to question that you are really putting your family's best interests first.

Up until a recent move to a city I lived in a very rural part of Thailand. The nearest city was 114KM away and the nearest other westerner was 7KM away. I stayed there 5 years and never once did I feel the need to have a weapon. The only crime we suffered was when a ten year old boy stole one of my old Gameboys. I didn't need to hunt him down with a gun as his parents returned it. I am convinced that the mere act of having a gun in your home vastly increases the chances of somebody being seriously hurt. It is also very hard to have secrets in a village. I wouldn't expect that the locals would take to kindly to a wanabe farang gunslinger in their midst - because that is how it will look.

Walking away from a fight doesn't seem your style! Admirable. You might want to consider applying that ethos to other aspects of your life...

Oh sorry clint eastwood, you go and buy your gun, me ill just put my hands up and let them take the lot, usually when burgled putting up a fight is what causes death/injuries, ask a cop or someone in the know,live coward or dead hero, you take your chance ,and i pray that if you are ever unfortunate enough to be burgled that they arent armed,if they are and you pull a gun someone will be hurt, Do you feel lucky punk ?,. well do ya ?,. lets hope its not you eh clint,.

Well heres my feelings, a good friend of mine ( he was best man at my wedding ) was in his house when 3 men came one with a sawnoff shotgun ,3 weeks ago, ( google colin pester plymouth ) colin put up a fight, they pistol whipped him then shoved the sawn up in his stomach, colin goes to bat it away and it goes off and blows his side out,they step over his body ( he survived ) they drag his wife helen by the hair upstairs whilst their 7 year old looks on,after robbing them they flee,.this is a real life event, do you really think colin will now go and get a gun ? no i think even if he sees a gun in a film he will shit himself,.they cant even return to that house,.in his words, if i had just let them take what they wanted maybe this wouldnt have happened, he didnt have a clue how how he would react, would you ?,.

I just do not understand.

I worked for over 20 years having to carry a gun.

Now I do not have to and do not want to again. I still own one, but left it back in the US with my brother, a gun collector.

I have taken several human lives. It is horrible. Yes, they were total scum, one was a woman, but still feel horrible about it.

To watch someone die..to see what your weapon did, it's not pretty. It's not clean.

Years after, I still wonder if I did the necessary thing on all but one, where she left me no other choice.

I have to ask though,

Why do some of you feel that a drug crazed nut is going to pick your house to come into?

Why you?

Why do you feel you are going to be the victim of such a crime where the use of deadly force would be needed? Or is it.."just in case"?

I'm not being a smart ass or lashing out...I'm just curious.
