    That is a tragic story. I don't see how any right thinking person could be against providing for your own self-defense.

    Remember the recent thread running on what to say to an anti about carrying a firearm?

    This story is a much more appropriate reply than any of the pithy quotes you can come up with.

    It shows just how dangerous a place this world can be & if you're not prepared................if you can't protect yourself, WHO WILL?

    I think I'm going to print several copies of this story to give the next nasty anti that says anything to me about carrying. Maybe if they get shocked enough, some of them might get it.

    (side note: Just when I think that I have become so jaded by the ill will of some men...that nothing people do to each other can surprise, disappoint or horrify me.......something like this comes along & just turns my stomach & makes my blood boil.)
