Around 2:35 p.m., Little Rock firefighters carrying a power saw and a Halligan tool —a large pry bar— were seen walking toward the house. An ATF agent was overheard saying they were at the scene to help agents open a safe in Malinowski’s house,

This is something I have been musing about for a while now: If you are involved in a defensive shooting, you will have any firearm you have with you confiscated as evidence.  If the shooting is away from home, then it will be only what we have with you. But if it is at home or where you have all your weapons, you are pretty much left disarmed and won’t see them for long time.

I believe one needs to have a cache of weapons and ammo legally stashed somewhere or with somebody you trust. Mind you, if the legal proceedings make it illegal for you to be armed, then you should not add to your crap pile and even get somebody innocent involved in a felony. But otherwise, the idea of being unarmed and probably a target of retaliation by a Bad Guy’s fellow criminals is just plain stupid and suicidal.

Just a thought.

  1. As a career fireman, let me state something for the record right fucking now….


    They can find someone else to force open a safe to confiscate firearms.

    1. Back in the day, when everybody lived near extended family, this wasn’t as much of a problem. When I was a kid on a ranch in Oklahoma, I had 30 kinfolk within 30 miles of my home. We didn’t just have firearms at other family member’s homes, but we borrowed everything from each other — lawnmowers, power tools, farm equipment, firearms, and what have you. If someone were to come in and steal my rifle, I’d have another one in an hour. Of course, in those days, you kept rifles on racks in the back of your pickup and could buy them from the Sears catalogue.
      I moved to the city I live in now to be near family. They have a couple of pistols of mine. To be honest, I’m considering burying a firearm in my garden…

  2. Before I retired from the fire department, we would get requests from the cops for help cutting into things. Once, the cops even raided a drug dealer’s house dressed like firefighters. We had a cow. The last thing we wanted was for criminals to start thinking we were the cops and putting a target on our backs.

    So we got the chief to tell them to cut it out.
