This place is called Smok N Guns and not only do they have loaded baked potatoes but they also do concealed carry classes as well. The Lord has answered my prayers.
"What about the use of firearms of self-protection? Again there is no clear-cut answer. Each year, 2.5 million times, victims use guns for defensive purposes, a number that is not surprising considering about one-third of U.S. Households contain guns. Gary Kleck has estimated that armed victims kill between 1,500 and 2,800 potential felons each year and wound between 8,700 and 16,000. Kleck’s research shows, ironically, that by fighting back victims kill far more criminals than the estimated 250 to 1,000 killed annually by police. Kleck has found that the risk of collateral injury is relatively rare and that potential victims should be encouraged to fight back. In a recent study conducted with colleague Jongyeon Tark, Kleck reviewed more than 27,000 contact crime incidents and found that when compared to nonresistance, self-protection significantly reduced the likelihood of property loss and injury and that most forceful tactics, including resistance with a gun, appear to have the strongest affects in reducing the risk of injury. Importantly, the research indicated that resistance did not contribute to injury in any meaningful way. The conclusion: it is better to fight than flee."

Well, I thought this was some information you all should read.
Personally I feel safer with a private citizen in the possession of a firearm than the police.
Because the police will just start firing on innocent people if they think they have a suspect:
"The attack on the women’s pickup truck wasn’t the only mistaken police shooting that morning in Torrance. Moments later, nearby local police opened fire on a pickup truck driven by a surfer heading to the beach."
What Is An “Assault Rifle?” You’ve Probably Been Lied To
So the next time you hear someone say “Why would anyone need a semi-automatic rifle?” you’ll know that they have absolutely no idea what they’re talking about.
This is an old video but it is still a good one. 10:33 has some good info for those people
ignorantenough to think you can easily convert a semi-auto to a full auto.
This is an incredible video and I encourage you all to watch it.
Inform yourselves and don’t let the media confuse you or lie to you with politically charged rhetoric.
“There shouldnt be guns in the first place.”
Well the fact of the matter is that firearms do exist and they are not going away.
When you outlaw guns only criminals will have guns.
“The real problem is why do people feel the need to break into peoples homes and rob people???”
Who knows the motives of these people. There are simply bad people in this world who have no problem with harming others.
A firearm allows someone to defend their property and their family. A firearm is a tool. Nothing more. It is an extension of an individual when used.
Take a knife for example, is a knife good or evil? I can do great things with a knife. I can use it to cut my food. I can use it to spread butter on my toast. Does this make the knife good?
I can also do very terrible things with a knife. I can use it to stab people. I can use to threaten others. Does this make the knife evil?
The answer is the knife is neither good or evil. It is a tool. It is an extension of the individual who uses it. When someone gets stabbed we don’t put the knife on trial. We don’t put a gun on trial when someone gets shot. We put individuals on trial when these things happen. Inanimate objects don’t have personalities. Tools do not just get up and kill people.
“sorry but what is this bullshit about teaching ur kids to handle guns?”
It is never too early to teach a child firearm safety. It is never too early to teach a child how to properly use and respect firearm. I think the best thing children can learn from that experience is that a gun is not a toy like they see in the movies or video games.
In doing so we carry on a beautiful American tradition of firearm ownership.
Thanks to dudeistlibertarian for this wonderful answer.
Well I do what I can.
BRYAN COUNTY, Oklahoma -
A 12-year-old girl took matters into her own hands during a home invasion in southeast Oklahoma.
It happened on Wednesday when the girl was home alone. She told police a stranger rang the doorbell, then went around to the back door and kicked it in. She called her mom, Debra St. Clair, who told her to get the family gun, hide in a closet and call 911.
That was when St. Clair dropped what she doing and raced home.
"I drove home at a really fast pace to try to get to her, and when I got here the police were already here. And they had the suspect," she said.
The during that time, the intruder made his way through the house. St. Clair’s daughter told deputies the man came into the room where she was hiding and began to open up the closet door. That was when the 12-year-old had to make a life-saving decision.
"And what we understand right now, he was turning the doorknob when she fired through the door," said the Bryan County Undersheriff Ken Golden.
The bullet hit the intruder, who deputies identified as 32-year-old Stacey Jones. He took off but did not get far before officers took him down.
"He was sitting down, the policemen had him apprehended at the end of the block. All I saw was some blood coming down his back. I’m not exactly sure where his injury was, but I saw some blood there," explained St. Clair.
Jones was taken to a Texas hospital by helicopter after the incident. An investigator on the case said Jones was released from the hospital Thursday and extradited to the Bryan County Jail.
The 12-year-old girl was not injured during the ordeal.
The 2nd Amendment saves lives. Who knows what this criminal would have gone to her.

Police said a man broke into the basement and entered the first floor of a Boone County home in the 15000 block of Violet Road in Verona just after 2 a.m.
The homeowner, Earl Jones, 92, was awakened by a noise in his basement and grabbed his .22 caliber rifle. When the intruder came through the door from the basement, Jones fired a shot, police said.
Jones immediately called his neighbor, who then called 911. When deputies arrived, they said they found the outside basement door ajar but no one other than Jones at the home.
Police say the wounded intruder was carried off by two other accomplices. They say those accomplices, Ryan Dalton and Donnie Inabnit, put him in their car and took off. They got about a mile when they stopped on Courtney Road to call 911.
When Kenton County Police responded to the call they found a dead 24-year-old man along with Dalton and Inabnit in a 2001 Chevrolet Impala.
Dalton and Inabnit were taken to the Boone County Sheriff’s Office for questioning. Police said they admitted they were involved in the burglary on Violet Road.
Ryan Dalton, 22 and Donnie Inabnit, 20, both of Dry Ridge, Kentucky, are charged with Burglary 2nd degree (complicity) and Tampering with physical evidence.
The name of the deceased man has not yet been released.
Saw this on the GOA facebook.
Police can’t always be there on time. Once waited 45 minutes for an officer to show up.
Saw this on facebook. Something to keep in mind is that the police can’t always get there on time. You have to take responsibility for your own safety.
