    Westfield was the first thing that came to mind when I saw this Resurrection.

    "Of course it scares me," said Sean, one of the victims neighbors. "Even though I have a gun at my house, my own gun, I don't think I would've been able to walk and get it by the time I opened the door and someone's pointing a gun at my face."
    I hope the people who choose to position weapons in their home instead of carrying on their person have made a realistic assessment of how long it will really take them to react and move to the weapon, acquire it, and take necessary actions with it.

    Even a gun on you isn't of much help if you have a gun pointed at your face before you know what is going on. Maybe look before you open the door?

    I remember way back when I used to laugh at rhino for saying such stuff.

    "Within arm's reach" is only when in bed or the shower now days.

    Seems like both would give a person more options. Carrying a backup as well as primary can give you more options. Positioning weapons in the home might add a few more options to that in narrower circumstances. If one has the resources, why not?

    Your theory is good until folks start getting lazy. Next thing you know, they are sprinkled everywhere. Then it's back to "within arms reach," which rarely is.

    If your sidearm is always on you, there is no second thought about where your arms need to reach to find "arm's reach."

    Agreed. But you have to admit there's a certain lure to the thought of guns "sprinkled" everywhere.

    You don't have to tell me. I just went around and locked up all the sprinkles so a grandson could hang out.

    LOL, they popped in on us unexpected a week or two ago. I had 2 sitting on the chair side table and another on the kitchen table to grab and run.
    I try to keep all of them put away but they get away from you after awhile.
