What happens when they start targeting family homes? Is your family & house
safe from this kind of lawlessness? Better do a security audit now. Right
I'll check all five of my strategically-placed pistols later this night.
Night before last, 3:00 a.m., I awoke to some crashing around down the hall.
"Goddamn cat," I thought. Cat meowed; he was snuggled up next to me!
"Some sumbitch is trying to steal my couch out of the living room!" I
concluded. Then I thought I'd just pretend to be asleep inasmuch as I don't
like that couch very much. But then I thought "What if they try to take my
mounted beaver on the hearth?"
I extended my arm and retrieved my Glock 10mm and slowly approached the
door. Taking every precaution, I peeked.
It was my girlfriend pouring herself a glass of win. She had had several
