    But look how many police are killed in the line of duty, and they’re well-armed and well-trained. It’s hard to say citizens should make that choice.
    The police can neither pick the place nor time. Duty thrusts them into dangerous situations where they control few of the variables.

    The citizen in his/her home can think ahead. Identify the know dangers. Plan for self defense. Know that the intruder is unfamiliar with the interior of the house. Use a shotgun. Preselect positions of good cover. Be aware of concealment locations. Have a few layers in the defensive scheme including a yappy dog. Think about lighting that will silhouette intruders in otherwise dark spaces. In home defense, you can manage all of the variables except the intruder.

    The citizen in his/her car can drive aware of ambush situations. Stay out of questionable areas. Keep the car locked, escape routes open, and aware of the other traffic. Have a pistol ready to use in self defense.

    In short, there is almost no comparison between a homeowner defending his space and a police officer called to the location of trouble and exposed to unknown dangers.

    Thanks for posting the link to the article. I read the Dayton paper most days, but missed this article. Considering that the Dayton Daily News is about as left-wing liberal in its editorial policy as it can get, I think the article was suprisingly "balanced". That really amazes me! There was an article in yesterdays edition that talked about four more killings in recent days. Not quite as "balanced", as one of the four was aparantely a self-defense shooting by a CHL holder. The BG is dead and the CHL holder was also shot. The police are looking into it because it occured outside a restaurant and the dead guy supposedly tried to rob the CHL holder. (In OH, we can't carry in a restaurant if they serve alcohol, even if you don't drink). IMHO, should not have been lumped into the same article with three obvious homicides. Big point of the article was the police don't think any of the shootings were gang related. Whoop-de-do!

    I'm very grateful to live in a state that has at least adopted the Castle Doctrine. I just don't understand the intense effort to empower and victimize criminals...
    Ohio has castle doctrine. There's no duty to retreat within ones home or automobile.

    Don't know why our Web site staff didn't allow commenting on that story, but it's a month old now, so they certainly won't be adding it now.
    You're always welcome to send any comments to me.
