Default I keep rifles under my bed for self-defense?!?

Quote:
Gillibrand disclosed she had two guns under her bed in an interview with Newsday last week. An aide later said the guns were rifles -- she won one in a county fair raffle while campaigning -- and that she kept them for home security.
Ms. Gillibrand, I applaud your style and your principled approach to the office. But I can't help but wonder, how big is your house that a rifle makes sense as a self defense weapon? Seriously, a rifle? Are you that skilled? Really? Do you plan on running a few hundred feet away to get a good shot? Or are you just going to stick the barrel in their chest and pull the trigger?

Nothing beats a good Mossberg pump for home defense.

"The modern banking system manufactures money out of nothing. The process is perhaps the most astounding piece of sleight-of-hand that was ever invented. Banking was conceived in inequity and born in sin. But if you want to continue to be slaves of the bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, then let the bankers continue to create money and control credit."

- Josiah Charles, President of the Bank of England & 2nd richest man in Great Britain (1880-1941)

A rifle wouldn't be suitable for close quarter combat and enclosed areas such as a house; but it's definitely a start for home self-defense. Beats a knife by a mile. Could use an improvement though. At least get a Carbine (if possible), but the best would be a Shotgun.

It may also be used as a fear factor. People would be scared the shit out of their pants if they saw a rifle compare to say a baseball bat.

I'll come at em with my mahogany bat swinging like a berserker. That'll scare em well enough I think. Shotty makes for better range though, despite the terrible mess it leaves.

Speaking of property damage, does insurance cover for the damage done while someone is using a Shotgun as a self-defense?

I'm guess not?

What would happen if you pointed said rifle at said chest and pulled said trigger? I dont imagine it would be messier than a shotty from equal distance.

A much larger single hole. Get hit with a bullet at such close range and it literally tears a hole in you and that hole expands a good bit, depending on the bullet size and distance from the barrel, then compresses super fast causing even more damage. Not exactly messy but very damaging to say the least.

My first gun was a 9mm. Then I got a SR-25. Of course it was for show. Both of them were de-militarized and couldn't shoot to kill a life. Oh well.

I know that on more powerful weapons they shoot the projectile at such velocities that they spin so fast as to cause damaging air turbulence around them. Some guns are so powerful that if you shoot at someone and miss by 3 inches there will still be tissue damage due to the air around the bullet spinning so fast. But would a rifle do that?

The Dragunov Rifle does that...I think. Maybe some AU rifles as well.

And that is true. I went to a shooting range, and I shot at two papers. One which was almost point blank, and another which was 50 yards. The paper which was point blank was literally torn to shreds, and not only that, but the gun that I was firing was a 9mm.

Firing at paper with guns for testing purposes is like beating up four year olds to test martial arts skills.

But yeah, of all the home defense tools, a rifle wouldn't be my first choice. But then, since I don't live by myself, neither would a shotgun.

Now that I think of it, are there any legal SMGs that people can get? Easily or not? I've heard and seen people using rifles and shotguns, but not SMGs. A SMG would be a good alternative to a shotgun.
