    I mean this with no offense or comedic value, but your parents must not love you a whole lot of they are willing to go to such an extreme to keep you from protecting yourself.

    Would they really rather see you dead, than have the ability to protect?

    One case, you could keep your weapon hidden from your parents, as well as the fact that you carry. Its deceitful, but life is more important. Brings up a saying " its better to beg forgiveness than to beg permission."

    I agree with deadlifter, "It's easier to ask forgiveness than it is to get permission."

    Comply with your parents' wishes when in their house; outside their house it seems to me you keep your mouth shut and do what makes sense.

    that is something that i have thought about but that leaves me unprotected when at home. it would be better than not having any at all however. i just dont know how to convince them this is something i need.

    Why are you getting death threats? Do you know who it is?
    Your parents dont make any sence to me. Are you not old enough to carry a weapon or something? If you are old enough, I would no matter what anyone said.
    Have you called to cops about this death threat? What did they say?

    If you are getting threats, don't let people know where you are moving to. A phone number should be sufficient for your parents.

    being old, probably older than your parents even, i have been on the receiving end of threats of all kinds. i found that the sight of a legally carried firearm, or the reputation that you legally carry a firearm tends to quell threats, and keep the evil ones at a distance. something your parents may wish to consider.

    Being that old, you probably remember when the USA was mostly free!

    I even remember when you could buy anti-tank guns, anti-aircraft guns and ammunition through mail order. When I was 17 I went across the border to another state and bought one of my favorite pistols (Colt Woodsman) for cash! No ID, no problem.

    It is hard to believe that we have allowed so many restrictions on our freedom to be placed on us so rapidly. But when the "Progressives" own the media, the schools, and the government for 60 years (1934-1994) I guess it can be understood.

    Why are you receiving death threats? What's the story? What do your parents thunk about these threats? Not that it will do much, but have you considered a restraining order against the person who wishes to do you harm? Is this related to criminal activity?

    I you know who the guy is then that's your first advantage.
    A lot of time, people who threaten such crap are nothing more than girlymen.
    I say, carry a gun if you have one. When you get home, just conceal it so your folks dont know.
    " Remember, the police said they cant do nothing", and their not obligated to protect you either!
    Dont be stupid, defend yourself.

    This is probably something you should work out with your parents..

    Or find a place to live in the mean time.

    Life isn't easy.

    guess who's coming to dinner

    perhapse invite an experienced carrier over for dinner, for your parents to meet with, and talk with. 2 heads are better than one.

    never mind VW guy- everyone knows he's a 'drive by' kind of guy heh-heh.

    This doesn't sound like anything anyone around here could help with..

    I don't need to know any dramatic details to know that it sounds like his relationship with his parents might already be strained a bit.

    I think there is more to it, than simply owning/carrying a weapon.

    Thats all.

    This is simple. Remind them who will be choosing their nursing home for them when they are 80.

    Carry a strong walking stick with you

    Just a few simple moves makes a walking stick very effective as a defensive tool. A lot of people see it as non-threatening, and you can get a good one for just a few dollars. It is legal to carry nearly everywhere.

    When I was unable to carry a firearm, I carried about a four foot walking stick. Find a few stick fighting techniques, simple ones, and practice with them. The old bayonet drill is a good start. Thrusts, blocks, and butt strokes can all be quite effective.

    If you have to use it, go all out. If you are defending your life, don't worry about breaking bones. The human body is much tougher than most people realize.

    A simple stick can make up for a lot of difference in size, and has the reach on a knife.

    Not That Complicated

    There are many extended stay hotels where you could live until your new place is available. Why three months? Is it brand new construction?
