There has been a ton of controversy out there surrounding guns, especially with all the gun-related tragedies that have happened recently. You have the anti-gun people who think there’s no place for guns in society and then you have the pro-gun people who claim they are the only way to protect the home. Well, any homeowner out there who has heard of services like Security Choice knows that’s a blatant lie. However, the fact is that guns do make excellent, if not, extremely dangerous intrusion deterrents.
One thing to remember, if you are thinking of bringing a gun into the home, is that guns are not inherently dangerous. They are tools. They are inert until picked up and wielded. If you are going to use a gun for home security purposes, then you owe it to yourself and anyone living with you to master the use. Seems like a no-brainer but you would be surprised how many people think they’ll buy a gun and just wave it around when trouble strikes. Guns are not toys and they are not to be used as a form of intimidation. If you draw down then you better be prepared to use it – you had better be prepared to take a life. Master the use if you qualify to have a gun at the home and only use it when absolutely necessary.
