I used to have a saying - There are certain guns in my house that are always loaded (meaning my 45 and shorty shotgun) and other guns (long guns and hunting handguns) that have no business being loaded in the house.
Given the current political climate, there isn't a single fucking gun in my house that ain't loaded with multiple reloads on hand. I am never more than a quick step away from a firearm at any given time. How fucked up is that? I mean, there should be no reason for a law-abiding citizen to worry about anything other than some punk-ass burglar.
