I had a conversation at work today that was sad and hilarious at the same time. A fellow who works at the same company as myself had a home invader the other night. He does not own a firearm because the has kids. Apparently, according to this guy, it is self-evident that gun owning fathers are irresponsible for putting their kids at risk. Now to the funny part. When he heard the guy braking in he got his dog and hid out of sight. His dog is small but “sounds big”. The intruder was not impressed by his big sounding dog and continued to break into his house. Once the intruder was inside the homeowner protected his family by “Using my voice as a weapon”. Those were his exact words. I damn near wet myself. The intruder was not too worried about the homeowner shouting at him and was going to take a little something for his trouble. Luckily, the police showed up in time to arrest the POS and no one were injured. I suggested that he rethinks his position about having a firearm in the house. He called me irresponsible for owning firearms with children in the house. I called him irresponsible for not being able to protect his kids from a home invader. He told me that guns could injury or kill children. I laughed and asked him if he had any dangerous chemicals, knives, prescription drugs or even electricity in his house. In the end, we had to agree to disagree. At least he did not raise his voice with me.
