    Kudo's to the silent stranger (except for the sound of the slide being racked).

    I tend to agree with you. If I ever have to use my gun I prefer the only sound to be the gun going bang. I always carry one in the chamber.

    I hate to bring this up, but I do it for your own benefit. If your wife keeps a firearm in the house you both live in, a prosecutor could reasonably make a case that this constitutes "furnishing a firearm to a felon" on her part, and that it also constitutes "constructive possession of a firearm" on your part. I encourage you to talk to an attorney about this... it probably wouldn't cost more than $100 for an hour of conversation. Just something to think about.
    Truth is mighty and will prevail. There is nothing the matter with this, except that it ain't so.

    Here in Hawaii we have very strict and often times senseless firearms laws. With that said, I know of several situations where there's a person living in a house (spouse, brother, sister, boyfriend, girlfriend, etc.) who are not allowed to have firearms along with a person (or people) who legally can. The law states that the firearms must be made "inaccessable" to "unauthorized persons". If the gun owner takes reasonable precautions (like locking the gun up when not in use), then the prosecutor will not prosecute. I've seen first hand several cases where over zealous cops arrest law abiding gun owners and the prosecutor refuses to prosecute because the gun owner made a "reasonable" attempt (put the guns in a gun safe) to secure the firearms from "unauthorized users".

    Don't know the laws where the OP lives, but I imagine that it's nowhere as strict as the laws here in HI. (I'm assuming that since the wife has a CC license that he doesn't live in Kommifokneeah). Keep in mind tha IANAL (I Am Not A Lawyer) and I don't play one on televison :), so as "Ishi" stated check with the appropriate legal counsel if necessary.

    I must cast my vote along with the others. Often times, if a felony was not violent, and many years have passed, it is possible to have your civil rights restored. There was a lot of discussion of it a couple of years ago in Arizona. Seems a woman brought a suit against the state of Arizona for depriving her of her ability to own and keep weapons in her home because she was married to a convicted felon. Finally, the attorney General and the state supreme court ruled he should have his rights restored. I beleive it was settled amicably and she has her guns, as does he.
    A man without a gun is a subject; a man with a gun is a citizen.

    Yeah, someone without a gun and in a place where there isn't anyone else around with a gun to protect them. As we all know criminals are opportunists; rathere than learning their lesson that crime does not pay, they'll change their behavior to do what they need to to not to get caught. Getting shot would have taken him out and society would be a helluva lot better off as a result.

    Nevertheless, this guy's actions were incredible. Your wife is truly lucky.

    In Oklahoma you cant even have a weapon in your home if you have a felony conviction. How does this work in your state?
