chalket-I guess if you live in a Bruce Willis movie


Or if you live less than 2 miles from where these people:


Do this to a Korean War Vet:


On Jan 27th, and he dies 12 days later.

(And yes, I do live less than 2 miles where this went down).

And no, I would not like that piece of furniture.

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.)

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


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.

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. <

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.

Very cool but the way I bump my head on the headboard when I sleep this thing would be dropping guns on me all through the might.

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)

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.

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.

"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.

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.

Oh, MeGrendel, I am so hurt by your scathing assault on my lifestyle! And, may I add, we are all very humbled by your superior wit and incredible interwebz skillz! We bow to your awesomeness.

Sorry to compromise your anonymity, but I found your pic and just have to post it:

nice.
your rights end when you break in to my house. you chose to trespass, you chose to ignore the locked door, you chose to try and take something that isn't yours... you life becomes forfeit at the muzzle of a gun, by your own choice as well.

All of you are missing the point.

This is neat.

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"..."

chalket-sleep with their dearest love.... to fondle your love in the middle of the night

I realize that YOU are used to having sex with inanimate objects:

But don't project your own inadequacies on others.

LordJim- So some pale pathetic sneak-thief hoping to grab a few bucks needs to get blown away?

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.'

For about a grand, any gun-nut can sleep with their dearest love near at hand.

Here's a cheaper style, but it'll take a few more seconds to fondle your love in the middle of the night.

@MeGrendel,

No fear of guns here. We had guns in the house when I was growing up. Good job at jumping to conclusions though.

@IRockNope.

More likely: "I'm in a house where everyone's asleep. As long as I make no noise I can go into this little girls bedroom and have a good time. So I'll sloooowly open this do...OH CRAP!!"

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.
