"Victims who shoot back tend to live longer"... Think of it this way, a criminal is going to have a gun one way or another, legal
or not. He's a criminal so he doesn't care about the law. So getting a gun gives him an advantage over the the majority of people in countries where it's illegal to have guns
. But if the law abiding people get to have guns
, than the "playing field" is potentially evened. I mean really, is a criminal going to break into the big house or fancy yacht if he even thinks, that the owner might have a gun. Or is he going to break into the little house or shabby yacht with the anti gun activist. Hmmm....
To quote an old dead US president "Walk softy and carry a big stick."
Basically have a good alarm
system, but don't go crazy like your expecting a fight, because you should avoid the fight to begin with. But a good loud alarm
and some bright lights up on the mast
to illuminate the deck
, then a sturdy door to each cabin
and then a heavy duty hatch
to the below decks and your set for the average robber. After that keep a flare and fire extinguisher with you inside. Shoot them with the flare them scare the s*** out of them and do damage control with the extinguisher incase they keep coming Because if they don't run off after the lights and music
, then they probably mean to do serious harm for any of a million reasons. And if need be beat them with the extinguisher. So far nothing that shouldn't illegal in my plan of defense. And I suggest investing in some magelites (thats the name of the brand, I'm not misspelling) because they're bright, incredibly durable, and they make a great "whoopin stick".
As for gun rights, ill finish with how they also have many exhibitional uses, like competitive shooting, and then there's also those people who like to hunt for their own m eat, instead of relying on stores to have food
. It's a way of being self sufficient.
My home is protected by god and a gun. Come in uninvited and you might see both. I suppose my yacht will be the same way someday.
