Reinforced a lesson (from a TV show)
This is not a critizism of the person who did this. Just a lesson to always keep in mind. I like to watch the First 48 on A&E. They carried a story about a man who grabbed his .45 ( from inside his house) and ran accross the street to stop an armed home invasion at the neighbors. The TV did not give a lot of details but the good guy ordered the three BG's to stop. All three returned fire and struck the good guy and he was killed. Tragic to say the least. Lessons I will keep in my memory are: 1. BG's sometimes win. 2. Assess if the situation can be made better with you and a gun. 3. Having a gun does NOT make you bullet proof. 4. I will engage only if I have no other choices. ( I don't believe any shots were fired prior to the good guy engaging.) 5. We live in a dangerous world.
