Yet another in my PSAs regarding guns saving lives. And, for a while, I'll be using the script format I presented >>>here<<<:
I am an American.
I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
I am an American homeowner. This morning, I was awakened by the sounds of men breaking into my home. I was in fear of my life and the safety of my family. I used my firearm to shoot one of the men, and held the other at gunpoint until the authorities arrived. Some crazy congresspeople want to restrict the weapons I can own to protect myself and my loved ones. That's crazy talk, from people who have armed guards everywhere they go. They don't know what it's like to have to wait in fear for law enforcement to arrive.
It could be worse!
What a shame he was not a better shot. I am glad it went well for the homeowner.
