union guy Yablonski had 12 ga under bed.
unloaded, cause he had kids. even tho he knew that he was at risk, because of a hotly contested union election. 4 guys broke in thru the doors and windows and shot Joe dead, right beside his wife, as he tried to load the shotgun. If he'd just kept a handgun loaded and ready, in a manner secured from the kids, he'd have been able to shoot at least 2 of the pos's and that would almost certainly have run off the other 2. They had handguns, by the way. Power in a gun means NOTHING if you can't bring it "into play" fast enough.
