Why did she hide in the attic? She must live in an id iot state where the law requires people to flee from a murderer before defending themselves. In Arizona if the suspect makes it three steps past the threshold, the police demand to know why..............

It seems as though real life examples of guns saving -- rather than taking -- innocent life go largely unreported (or flat-out ignored) in the mainstream media. Therefore, I have decided to post the following must-read story in its entirety (via Cameron Gray):
