    Politician sees the light

    Ex-Detroit mayoral candidate hides from intruders inside home

    From The Detroit News: Ex-Detroit mayoral candidate hides from intruders inside home | The Detroit News
    Former mayoral candidate Lisa Howze is recovering from an apparent break-in while she was inside her home on a day she made a controversial political decision.
    ***
    The first patrol car arrived in about 20 minutes, she said. And then another showed up and, finally, an investigative team.
    ***
    Another piece of advice Howze had been reluctant to hear in the past: Get a concealed pistol license.

    “The officer told me it’s time to get my CPL license,” Howze said. “I had resisted for a long time, saying, no, I’m not getting a gun, I’m not getting a gun. Now I’m not resisting.
    Nothing like a home invasion to put things in perspective. I'm glad she wasn't hurt this time and will hopefully be better prepared in the future

    Yep! What is it they say? A person who's liberal just hasn't been mugged yet...

    They learn, but gosh, they sure are slow on the uptake, huh?

    Yeah, I got tapatalk, too. So what?

    She's lucky it only took twenty minutes for the first patrol car to get there. I've heard emergency response times in Detroit are approaching the one hour mark.

    Welcome to the right side of the issue, Ms. Howze. Welcome aboard.
    I have a very strict gun control policy: if there's a gun around, I want to be in control of it.

    It's absolutely true. Seeing your own potential "death" and helplessness flash before you puts things into perspective, at least so long as you're listening.

    Whatever else is true, citizens: it's high time to start listening, if you want to have a chance to survive such encounters with something more in your "tool chest" than dial-a-prayer and sheer dumb luck. Anytime ... Anywhere.

    Oh, yes; the shame of still being idealistic, rather than a disillusioned cynic.

    so all it takes is a simple home invasion to change a liberal politician to our way of thinking?

    perhaps the NRA is working this all wrong.....

    Give it a bit of time for her cronies to work on her. I can hear it now. See you dont need a gun. You successfully hid from them. That is what all Americans should do. You were right in the first place and this is the proof. Now what is it you want passed and how much election fund donations was that you wanted if you stay the anti gun course???


    Glad shes not hurt but Ill believe shes converted when shes publicly pushing 2A and repeal of gun laws. Call me a pessimist.

    Well, some people learn the hard way and some can learn through the mistakes of others. Glad I outgrew the former condition during my teenage years and glad I found DC on the downhill ones.

    An acquaintance and his wife were hunkered down in their home in Detroit Mon night. The shooting outside went on for 2 1/2 hrs. 30 calls were placed to 911 by various neighbors.

    The PD NEVER responded...

    Good example of where the euphemism "Dial-a-Prayer" came from. Sad, that it has come to this. But, in Detroit, there aren't a lot of options without a tax base to speak of.
