    Rather than hiding a gun in an inaccessible securely locked storage, a better or good safe place to keep a gun safely in ON the supervision of a responsible citizen at all times!

    Dip sticks bring knives to a gun fight,too bad that home owner didn’t have a concealed carry permit.

      He doesn’t need one to have a firearm at home and/or use it to defend himself there.

        Technically, you are correct. However…..

        When returning home and encountering an intruder, there is most likely very limited opportunity to retrieve a locked up firearm.

        Yet another example of why someone who can legally buy a firearm should automatically be able to bear a firearm.

      He would have had a REAL surprise entering our home.

    Too bad this homeowner did not have a gun. Good luck with those stitches.

    So if I see a man with a machete, should I think he might be a suspect? (as judging from the description).
