Reason #328 why we must guard the second amendment fiercely

Via Morgan: Prosecuted for owning a stick

See Joe Horn Revisited.

I stand even more firmly beside my analysis. People rob homes and throw stones at them, in broad daylight even, because they are confident that nobody will do anything to stop them. The last thing we need to do is make up laws that make it impossible to, with any sort of reasonable self-protection, try to stop a crime in progress.

Joe Horn went to try to stop criminals from looting his neighbor's home. When they threatened him, he took them out with a shotgun.

Sydney Davis went out waving a board at boys who were THROWING STONES AT HIS HOUSE. He hit nobody with it. The boys ran off. He went to jail.

Let's be more like Europe? No. Thanks.
