My, how times change.

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.

Not fucked up at all. The situation is what is fucked. I have taken to carrying the shotgun in the car with me in addition to the carry .45. 00 and slugs.

Well...if Obutthole has his way your cops will be no different than a punk-ass burglar.

The Donks can yammer all they want about the legalities too - but in nazi Germany beating up Jews and stealing their property was as legal as church on Sunday, and "just following orders" was the only excuse you needed to indulge in it and excuse it.

I dunno about you...but for me, mark my words: if some idiot in a uniform comes to take away my means of self defense I WILL die well.

yeah right. Let's see, one burgler with two GR's and on Doxie in the house, not to mention a wife with good ears, wouldn't need more than what I've had locked and loaded for years. The only difference now is the multiple reload options have been added. Why? You know what they say, "because( )you, that's why". But seriously, it's because I may have to defend myself with more than 7 rounds, especially if they have body armor or are more than one, or because I can't hit shit because I'm freaked out. And another thing, if you're in a team, somebody has more opps to reload (mags)when multiple mags are available.

Yep. And the feeling ain't getting better either.

I keep a .45 on my hip even at home watching TV. I also need to finish my old Stevens coachgun 'gunsmith special' so I can have it at the ready.

Everything else is in the safe.

Never more than three steps away...FAL and .45 in reach of bed. That threshold reached two years ago. Always carry. Three lines of gear in BDUs in closet, LBE and ruck in hallway. Lots more pouches around lately tho'....

Right there with you- all guns are loaded and rifle in the vehicle when I leave the yard. Then there're the ones I'm carrying even into NoPerm zones (what they don't know can save my life).

But you're right: it does seem that history runs in circles and we're back to the 1870's West.

Nothing wrong with loaded pistols and shotguns .... I'm a little concerned about my long guns shooting through and through, but they are loaded too.

They are all loaded because my pitching arm isn't good enough to throw an empty pistol with any speed or accuracy for lethal outcomes.

Aren't loaded guns the reason for closets, bookshelves, bedroom and kitchen drawers and holsters?

With no kids and visitors everything is locked and loaded with safeties off.
One in my chair, one on her side, one on my side, one in my desk drawer, one in her desk drawer, 18" 870 in a bracket over the closet door.
The long guns are in the safe but loaded.
When they stack up outside we have eyes and alarms front and back.
We figure we'll have time to wake up,arm up, and take the first two or three. After that I'm hoping my neighbor tribe will remember us well.
Fuck 'em bring it.

I have pistol mags loaded but leave one out of the chambers... 4 year old grandson visits regularly and do not wish any mishaps just in case he finds one and gets curious.

Wrench, if he's like my son at 4YO, it's not too early to bring them out and start teaching the 4 rules.

Cheesy, Agree... however I gotta deal with the parents

I used to work at Jeep-Truck Engineering in one of the worst parts of Detroit back in the early 90s. That was before I even owned a handgun and long before concealed carry was legal. At that time I didn't think too much about it. Now if I have to drive more than 100 miles I don't leave without an AR in the trunk and two handguns. Is that over-the-edge fucked up? I dunno anymore...
