Tell me, bluebee, who can I turn them in to that will guarantee me that they can handle them better than me? One of the reasons I have them is to protect myself from those who carry authority without a corresponding amount of common sense.
I believe that our Govt would take great pleasure in accepting your firearms. But it isnt the Govt who will be protecting you/us.. In the event you HAVE an emergency, your going to be dialing 911, and dealing with an operator, who has likely heard it all, and is not going to do ANYTHING until you calm down and explain EVERYTHING to her/him and include an address...
Try to do that sometime when your adrenalin is maxed out and someone is trying to kick in your door. Not so easy as you think.
(I have WATCHED a grown man, EJECT all 5 shells from his gun.. THINKING he was firing it at a trophy buck)
Adrenalin will screw up your perfectly planned response every time unless your prepared.
Have you listened to the 911 calls that specifically start... He's Kicking the door in! OR HE'S IN MY HOUSE! If you havent you need to. Listen to the screaming, and worst of all, listen to the screaming end abruptly, while the 911 operator is saying Ma'am? Ma'am? Are you still there Ma'am? And she hasnt even sent the police because she didnt get an address yet...
You see... In my house.. I would call 911 too,....
"He's IN THE HOUSE WITH ME!!!! Oh god! Here he comes! BOOOOOM!!!
OK, you needed an address right? Hey..... can I drag him out so he stops bleeding on my floor?
They say that hell hath no fury like a woman scorned..
That may be true..
But you kick in my 300 dollar electronic lock, attached to a 2300 dollar front door, and in so doing threaten the life of the old gal I married and still love with all my heart... ??? May god have mercy on you, because mercy isnt what your about to meet.
The ability to protect her, is worth a LOT more to me than my own life or property. The police, CANNOT protect you. WILL not protect you, because they cannot BE there when you need them.
The ONLY time a Police officer has the magical ability be there instantly.. is when your in a hurry and dont come to a complete stop.
