    Regardless of age, race, gender, religion, sexual orientation...You threaten my life or that of my family, and JAM has been met, you are now in my weight class. Game on.

    About a year and a half ago there was a 10 year old in our hood robbing old folks with what was described as a 38 revolver and it was NO toy. Kids will kill you just as quick and anyone else.

    I don't need to answer as Saber has done so quite correctly, as Guantes did in his reply.

    Truth.

    The age is irrelevant. The reality of the threat is everything.

    Absolutely. Proof of the point.

    May we all keep it turned "on" at all times.

    I have a good friend who served in Afganistan (sp) for three tours, and was involved in an unfortunate incident with a youth pointing an airsoft AR at him. He still has nightmares about that one, and still believes he did the only thing he could do.

    Same rules apply here at home.
    What the **** - How did I end up on this soapbox again?!?!?
