When she wakes up alone at 2 a.m. to the noise of two men breaking in her home...she will stop hating guns.

No she will just grab a bat. Guns aren't the answer to everything, to be honest guns are the answer for only 2 things, hunting and war.

Then she may well get shot before she stands close enough to hit either man.

Ohh yeah I forgot you Americans and guns are like retards and helmets, you can find a helmet without a retard but you can't find a retard without a helmet.

Who's like a retard? You think a woman with a bat has a fair chance against two men with guns.

Stephen Gilberg Or, you know, she gets shot with her own gun. Or she shoots a relative. Or one of her kids accidently shoots the other when playing with it...
All things which happened more than a few times...
(Also, in a close environment, like a house, a bat is easily as effective as a gun)
We have lived happily without guns and I can honestly say, nobody here ever ran into a situation which explicitly required a gun.
Well, I did, but that was in the military, I don't think that counts...

None of those accidents is likely if she's had training. I'd be willing to require a pre-license test, just like for cars. And even if you're already standing close enough (not guaranteed even in a house), it still takes more time to swing a bat than to pull a trigger -- not to mention more strength to do it effectively, and a woman usually has the disadvantage on that score.

If people with guns break in, hide. While they wander around the place, go behind their back and grab a knife or a base ball bat even. Come up behind them, and attack! They'd be wounded or killed before they could do anything. Grab the gun from them. Do not shoot the gun though, point it at the, but not shoot unless you really have to. The Canadian way of kicking ass. :P

That could work, but I doubt it's the least risky way. May I present exhibit A, in which a woman scares off intruders with her own gun: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vpv9tJwjmAk. You can bet a bat wouldn't do the same.

Well if they have guns as well as the person at home, I doubt they'd be scared. They'd probably just point the gun at you while you point the gun at them. Then it would be "who can shoot the person the fastest". :P If they didn't have a weapon, and you came up to them with a bat or a knife, they'd be scared.. Happened with my cousin, someone tried to break in and my cousin got his hockey stick and threatened him. They guy ran off scared. xP

Well the guy wasn't in the house though, he was in the back yard. :P

Steven Anthony Tourond Not all Americans eat, sleep and breathe guns! Some of us actually have real interests. Really, I promise.
