I walk up to your front Door broad daylight and ask you for your Gun collection , chances are you will say something to the effect of No ; most likely in a more colorfully language. I then just walk by you in to your home using no force and start to pick up your guns in a non threating manner , what will you do after all it is JUST property ?
First off, you'd have to be HeMan because you'd be carrying a 300lb safe. Second, I'd call 911, that's why we have it. Third, I'd fight you if I thought I could and you didn't have a weapon. Fourth, I'd take pictures if I could, seriously, if your that casual about it, why can't I be? NOTE HOWEVER: you make one move to load a gun or get violent in ANY way that I consider life threatening and your getting shot.
Property isn't worth killing or dying for, my life and the lives of my family are worth dying for.
Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza.
The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice.
He is no fool who gives what he can not keep to gain what he can not lose.
