It's not about the type of gun: Burgler uses Muzzle Loader

… About that assault weapon’s ban…

Homeowner detains burglar, who was armed with muzzle-loading rifle and toy gun, sheriff says

It’s not about the gun… Just Sayin’

According to a news release from the sheriff’s office, a 56-year-old suspect unlawfully entered the residence with a muzzle-loading rifle and a plastic toy gun and confronted the homeowner and a visitor about a possible stolen dog. The homeowner was able to disarm the suspect and detain him until officers arrived. The “stolen” dog was not recovered and the suspect was transported to a local hospital due to complaints of health issues, the release said.

Kitchen knives to follow. And why do “Foodies” need so many different kinds of them anyway?

Then tasers, clubs and boomerangs.

Ok you two. Honestly, the guns proliferation surprised me. I didn’t know I could imagine needing different sizes same calibre until it happened; then it was obvious. But, I really did think I had kitchen knives “in hand” In fact, I rather thought they’d have made a great set of tools for the improvised tactical defense. Silly me when I discovered I’d gotten a knife that let me spread the jelly and mayo and really soft peanut butter (if I had to). Oh! and then, then, Shun came up with the two metal machine made ‘damascus’ and what a silly push over!

I heard England has taken a hard look at butcher knives. Especially after the gun ban and several knife attacks years ago. So don’t laugh it will be hard to cut steak with a butter knife.

In reference to the article I was hoping the home owner pulled the muzzleloader. Darn it wasn’t to be. But he got the upper hand!

I might have been tempted to pull out my c&b Remington to defend with. Big and noisy cocking of the hammer, gets attention.
