The Great Equalizer
A 79 year old man with a .357 against 2 thugs breaking in to his home. The old man won.
If guns were made illegal, how would this man have defended his home? Even if he had called the police beforehand, they would not have made it there on time to stop the men breaking in to his home.
The anti-gun zealots would have us cowering in our homes and waiting for the baby-killer cops to show up and possibly do as much damage to innocent bystanders as they might to a career criminal.
The old man deserves a medal for what he did. Criminals in his area are going to be thinking a little harder before breaking in to someone's house any time soon.
