Things like this are why if I thought someone was breaking into my house then I'd reach for a baseball bat instead of a gun.  But a single mom that lives alone, I totally understand the gun.

How about a 58 year old disabled man?
Do I have to do battle one on one with an attacker?

I can't run away. I can't swing a bat.

Do I get an exemption too?

Why would anyone even break into your home or attack you? Absolutely not realistic scenario to be honest!

I didn't even notice this post.

To answer your question.  My statement is about what I would do.  It wasn't a way that I believe everyone in general should protect their house.

So your bat can stop bullets?

Mine can, depending on the calibur.

Yes.  There's a documentary about it.

Yes.
But considering that we're talking about if my bat can stop a bullet, its not really relevant.

So if I break into your house with a 15 round handgun, you could block all 15 shots in a row with your bat?

I wouldn't argue along those lines if you are a gun supporter,  the end game of that line of reasoning is an arms race, and it's a great argument for making all guns illegal. 

In any case, in America the likelyhood that you will be mistakenly shot in your own home by police is greater than it is anywhere else,  are you going to gun down police?

You asked if my bat could block bullets, not if I could use a bat to block bullets fired at me.

What, can you block bullets with your gun or something?

Sometimes its on purpose with crazy people/evil people.

Other times the intruder is caught off guard because they think the home is empty.

What, like Trump declaring himself president for life? :P

But here's more normal answers:

Dead people can't pay taxes.  Less guns, less people being shot.
Lower cost of police.  Less guns, less need for hyper-awareness, less need for special equipment like bullet proof vests.  And lower health care costs for them.  Also, it becomes safer so you have a better chance of hiring people.

You do realize that gun restrictions were LOOSENED right?
The only restriction became that guns were removed from "dangerous" people.  Jews became those people.
Kinda like if Liberals are deemed too dangerous to own guns but Republicans aren't.  Or vice versa.

Of course, having guns wouldn't have made a difference.  Except maybe they'd have been gunned down in their homes instead of sent to camps but details.
