"We need to hear more stories of how law-abiding gun owners have managed to thwart criminals."
Wrong comment. We need to hear more stories about how laws have been legislated to reduce the legality of self-defense. There was a time when legality and self-defense went hand-in-hand. Folk who chose to do so walked about with OPENLY EXPOSED firearms. Some towns chose to exclude those who openly exposed their weapons, but those who chose weapon over entry were free to depart with no further inquiry. Show me ANY airport that will allow THAT!
We need to hear more about a LOT of things that libs pretend don't happen.
