    Makes sense to me. It's something I'm sure all of us have been saying for years.

    Great article thanks for sharing.

    Some of the comments were also very interesting. Especially the ones about the "cop killer" bullets. ROFL.

    Good article, thanks for the link. I printed it out for future "use".
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    Yes, this happened not too far from my neighborhood. If someone at the home had a gun, they should have been able to engage and fend off this jealous nut job, before he was able to force his way into the home and kill two people, while wounding a third.

    Responsible gun owners don't use guns irresponsibly. Go figure
    Bingo. It seems more of these type of articles are surfacing recently.
    "A well-educated electorate, being necessary to the continuance of a free state, the right of the people to keep and read books shall not be infringed."
    Is this hard to understand? Then why does it get unintelligible to some people when 5 little words are changed?

    It makes so much sense and is proven repeatedly with solid fact. Anti's are just to emotional to absorb logic. I would rather call 911 anyday, and have the cops deal with life threatening problems. But I know that most life threatening won't sit by and let you call the cops and then wait several minutes for them to show up. (by the way, "several minutes" is absolutely best case senario, with a cop right around the corner and a lightning fast dispatcher. Good luck with that)

    More anti's need to be attacked or robbed or whatever. I know it sounds harsh, but they have to learn the hard way. They certainly don't seem to want to do it the easy(logical) way

    MY GOSH! If you know much about the Sentinel, you'd understand that hell has just experienced an arctic cold front! The author is one of the few sane and somewhat conservative contributers they have. In the normal, everyday world this rag has been extremely anti gun, anti ccw and anti self defense. I'm glad they actually let him get this piece published!

    That's ok. 180 degree philosophical shifts usually don't happen overnight, so I won't fault the author for taking baby steps where we would be sprinting. Those steps are in the right direction; that's the important thing.

    I'd suspect that someone fairly close to him was a victim of violent crime recently. It's been known to suddenly cause libs to see the light.
