    How many times has a burglar ever burst into your room while you were sleeping? How many times has a burglar ever burst into the room of a friend or family member while they were sleeping? Is it really so prevalent an issue that you need something like this?

    yeah, its not logical to need to defend yourself and have it stored in a way that`s accessible and away from kids, because NO ONE breaks into anyone`s house while they`re vulnerable and asleep. You`re right. Bad guy breaks into my house and is in the process of beating and raping my daughter... oh my! I better call the police and wait the 10-20 minute response time! pfft, not on my watch.

    Once. The guy woke up my mom who could smell his BO and booze laden breath. He had a 12" knife in his hand. She had to lay there terrified as he went through various drawers. Stuff was taken from my room as I slept along with stuff from my sister`s room. The guy was caught trying to fence my father`s company car a week later and did a few years. After he got out he went back to being a dirtbag and was eventually shot in another burglary.

    patchouly-it`s not about having the gun
    Yes, it is. But you realize your fear of inanimate objects is irrational so you state otherwise.

    patchouly-strange attitude Americans have that at any moment, someone is going to jump out and rob you
    So you`re saying that it`s impossible that you could become a victim of robbery or violence?

    There is always the chance it could happen. Most of the time that chance is small. Sometimes it is not so small.

    You`re `logic` makes it sound like it is foolish of me to waste the money on the fire extinguishers I purchased for house because the `chance` of a fire is very small.

    The chance of someone attempting to break into my home is higher than the chance of my house burning down.

    Ok so I`m robbing this guy, I`ve a gun pointed to his face and he reaches up and I see that trapdoor open. I don`t stand and stare as the gun drops into his hands and he sits up aiming it at me, no, I pump his stupid face full of bullets.
    All I wanted was the few dollars in his wallet at the bedside, I didn`t want to make his kids orphans.

    Signed,
    Lowly burglar.

    Chalket - having a gun is only "paranioa that you`ll be attacked" until one day you are attacked and then it`s "foresight".

    Remember, just because I`m paranoid does not mean they are NOT out to get me.

    I did once have a burglar enter my living room while I was awake and reading. He was a pathetic, scrawny little sneak-thief that did not present a threat. So I intimidated him out and then called the cops. They were there in ten minutes and very effective. I do have various stabby and hitty things to hand around the place. There`s a bill-hook on the the bookshelf and a swordstick by the door.
    But I accept that I live in a low-violence society and so stuff like that happens once in a blue moon. If it happened more often I would arm up. I just don`t need to and I like it that way.

    Guns are fun, no question. I really like shooting guns and talking with people who know about them. But there reaches the point that you are so prepared for assault hat you are eagerly anticipating it. So some pale pathetic sneak-thief hoping to grab a few bucks needs to
    get blown away?

    Not on my watch.

    It`s an occupational hazard.

    LordJim- Not on my watch.
    Okay, so the next time you find some `pale pathetic sneak-theif` in your living room, kindly take the time to ask him `Hey Mr PPST, are you here to grab a few bucks? Or to kill me, my wife, and rape my 5 year old daughter? I really need to know before I determine what level of defense to use on you. Remember, I completely trust you and will believe what you say.`

    It would also make an excellent Olympic event. "Wakened from a sound sleep by the starting horn, the athlete is timed as he must retrieve his shot gun and fire upon moving targets from the reclined position. Rolling over is legal, but risks "morning wood injuries"..."

    so let me get this straight Chalket... so because the opinion differs from yours, you can ridicule "gun nuts" on here, name-call, belittle, bully and generally issue "scathing assaults" with your superior wit on others` lifestyles, but when someone does it to you, you attack. LOL lemmie guess who you voted for.

    "so because the opinion differs from yours, you can ridicule "gun nuts" on here, name-call, belittle, bully and blah blah..."

    Where, exactly did I "name-call, belittle, etc."? My first post was just a tongue-in-cheek way of saying, "If you feel the need to sleep with a loaded weapon inches from your head, you`re probably a bit paranoid." That can`t be it, it`s just a lolcat after all!

    My next post had handy links to the maker of the gunbed, for your purchasing convenience. I admit that one was sarcastic and a bit snarky, but name-calling or belittling? No way. Are you denying that gun-lovers love their guns?

    Must be the last one, then... yeah, sarcasm turned up to "11" and the not-so-flattering image, that`s gotta be it. You do know it was in direct reply to MeGrendel`s "I realize that YOU are used to having sex with inanimate objects" quip, right? Kinda makes my reply justified, imho.

    Well! This certainly solves the age-old problem of getting to your firearm in the middle of the night when you might need it most.

    I went out to the website (thanks for the link Chalket!) and reviewed, because my concern (as always) would be safety - thankfully, I was happy to see the gun bed does have a discretely placed lock, to keep the kiddies and untrained away from the gun.

    But then I thought about it... doesn`t this kind of defeat the purpose of the gun bed? I mean, who really is going to religiously take the time to unlock it every night, sleep and then lock it back up in the morning? What about if you are drunk? What if you need the gun during the day and it`s locked up in the bed?

    Bad design flaw makes for bad design - you either will invariably find it locked at the most inconvenient time, or have to take time to get to a gun safe... this is nothing more than a drool dream for gun enthusiasts and not viable.

    Chalket, taking one individual`s comment and saying "this justifies me making fun of all of those people" is a pretty bogus argument. I think that you need to ponder this, and you need to grow up. This isn`t a good line of thought and I`m surprised you made it this far. Of course, people are nearly always bigger talkers online than real life. I suppose that might be it. Just try being nicer, and not taking other people`s comments so critically. We come here for entertainment, not for flame wars....though I suppose for some its the same.

    It`s nice that you can determine what every other person on the planet need inches from their head.

    At what point does `paranoid` become `justified`? Maybe when you wake up with a burgler in the room with you?

    Been there, done that, was damn glad my pistol was handy. Nobody got shot, but someone was held until cops showed up (and before you say I should have called the cops and waited...it took them 40 minutes to get there).

    chalket-in direct reply to MeGrendel`s "I realize that YOU are used to having sex with inanimate objects

    Which was, of course, in direct response to your `dearest love` and `fondle your love` (see, I even quoted you just so there would be no misunderstanding)

    DFW good on you for researching for yourself, the features of the headboard gun-ejector :) ... all of your points in your scenario are plausible save for the fact that as a gun -owner, I *have* to be responsible and that means taking whatever time that needs to be taken to secure and ready your weapon and ensure that its out of innocent hands while readied for defensive ones.

    If you don`t like guns, don`t own one. If you don`t like gay marriage, don`t marry your gender. If you don`t like drugs or porn, don`t take them or watch it.

    Those that argue in favor of the right of gun ownership are NOT passing judgement on others and demanding that they conform to someone else`s moral code.
    Those that argue against the right of gun ownership, even if it`s well meaning, ARE demanding that others conform (lose rights) to others idea`s of morality/right and wrong i.e passing judgement on others.

    And PLEASE don`t confuse the right to own a gun as a right to commit crime. Simply owning a legal firearm does not violate the rights of others. The word "Paranoid" had been used a lot in this discussion. Hmmmm I think that the real paranoia is from those that have an irrational fear of responsible gun owners or even worse, a fear of inanimate objects.

    "The right to own guns"
    The "Gay Marriage" of the far left. <

    Wtf? My comment was pretty simple, dude. What kind of RWNJ-filter do you have in your brain to force you to see such twisted versions of everything?

    First, where did I determine anything for anyone? I voiced my personal observation about the post and the people it was aimed at and you got butthurt. I fail to see how "...you`re probably a bit paranoid" could be considered determining a need for anyone. Second, where did you get that "every other person on the planet" bit? Holy crap, do you have a degree in Exaggeration? I plainly referred to a very specific sub-set of persons, the ones who drool over this piece of furniture. The ones who loudly and frequently proclaim their love of their guns. The ones who apparently get butthurt at the possibility they might, just might, be a bit paranoid.

    At what point does `paranoid` become `justified`?
    I guess if you live in a Bruce Willis movie or something I suppose maybe you could justify sleeping with a loaded weapon that close to your wife`s head. But in the real world, that`s just an accident waiting to happen. (A restless night, stretch a little too far in your asleep and BAM you have a shotgun in your face.) A lockable nightstand drawer or an underbed gun-safe would be wiser and safer, assuming you`ve taken proper precautions like deadbolts and motion detectors.

    I`m not against owning guns, but I repeat: if you feel the need to have a loaded weapon that close when you sleep, you probably are a bit paranoid.

    (Btw: I am glad your incident turned out okay and no one got hurt.)
