and no, the gun was not registered...would i have used it if need be? Absolutely. 

Quoting Anonymous:


a gunsafe won't protect a stalker from killing the stalked either....no person being stalked is going to keep their gun locked up....and i am speaking from experience..i slept with a shotgun in bed with me to protect myself.

and then theres the concealed weapons some women hide just to stay safe

Quoting Anonymous:

I actually taught them to not get involved with assholes that would need a restraining order. There are usually signs.....but they both can shoot-started when they were 5 as did the boys. Problem is this-cops will take weapons when there is domestic violence-and it doesn't matter who owns them....Happened in New York state and it resulted in the death of the woman AND her Father (whom she had gone to stay with)



It would be registered to you if you purchased it legally in most states.  So how would they NOT know you had it?

Not to mention if you have kids-how concealed is concealed?  Hmmmm? And if it has a trigger lock-how useful is it if you have to get to it-unlock the trigger lock and then load it?

A gunsafe is clearly the way to go (and my guess is it will be made the law eventually.....)  But that wouldn't protect you from a stupid cop.






How did you pull that off?  You can't DO that in most states-don't they background check?

What state doesn't background check?

it was an unregisterd gun...they are so easy to obtain, it's ridiculous...my friend had it for years, and lent it to me for safety reasons

And endangered your kids. I can open my gun safe in under 10 seconds.  You can't get up stairs in my house that fast-hell you can't get on the property without the dogs barking their heads off.  So running full speed it would take you 10 seconds to door-breaking the lock with a ram perhaps another 30 seconds (minimum) then you have to deal with the dogs jumping all over you-get up the stairs-and meanwhile I had the gun out before you got in the door!

The key is to use a pattern for your safe-not numbers-so you can do it in the dark-and practice.

And if you used it you would BOTH go to jail. What happens to your kids then?  Why not just purchase legally?

There are many sides to this. According to the supreme court, police do not need to enforce restraining orders. But, teaching daughters to live in fear and shame isn't helping either. We must attack rape culture, while we defend ourselves. 

Густа ми магла паднала, на тој ми рамно Косово! Ништа се живо не види, до једно дрво високо. Под њег` ми седив терзије, они ми шијев јелече.Колко су дзвезде на небо,Толко су шарке на њега.

My dad taught me how to shoot at a very young age. Had my own gun and bow.
