I remember that the Texans defended their home, the Alamo.

To direct back to your own argument: "If you don't have a gun, you're more likely to be poisoned, stabbed, strangled or bludgeoned to death."

if you are speaking of incidents ONLY in the home, I would need to see causal evidence of this statement above. I imagine this would be incredibly difficult to parse out.

I would also need to know what violence is intentional versus accidental. It is very difficult to accidentally stab someone to death.
Much, much easier to accidentally shoot someone to death.

I should say I am really thinking more about directed violence, rather than accidental death. Any accidental death concerning a firearm is due to neglect on the part of gun's owner.

There are those that contend simply having a gun present in a home created a hazard - regardless of it's kept condition. ( example - insurance companies charging a higher premium because there are firearms in a house, even if the guns are unloaded in a locked vault)

An unloaded gun in a locked vault is safe. (No pun intended.) It's also useless for "home defense".

And yet insurance companies will charge you higher premiums.

I'm talking safety of the residents, not how much the toy locker costs to keep at home.

What did you think you meant by "stick to the subject line?"

You should not tell others what they can and can't do while assuming exceptions for your own posts.

Perhaps I haven't made it clear.

Insurance companies feel the can charge more for homeowners and medical insurance just because you have a firearm in your home ( regardless of kept condition).

Why do they feel they can charge more?

Because enough people believe the nonsense that anti- gun hucksters have been spouting for years.

Like the mere presence of a gun in a home makes you more likely to get shot. ( and by default, killed)
