Drunks with Guns: You Loot, We Shoot

it's very simple. In a National Disaster, if you are NOT ARMED, you can easily become a VICTIM. If you are armed, you can defend yourself ,loved ones and property and neighbors, until the National Guard can be mobilized, or the police can restore order. Why is this such a complex notion?

After riots swept parts of the United Kingdom last year, I wrote about the moral argument for gun ownership. Simply stated, it is wrong to disarm law-abiding people, particularly when there is a risk of societal breakdown.

The same argument is equally applicable in the areas ravaged by the recent storm to hit the northeastern United States. As you can see from this report in the New York Post, the government is failing in its responsibility to provide law and order.
