    No, there is a need. When seconds count, the police are minutes away. The only ones who think that we do not have the right to defend ourselves are those criminals who are protecting the criminals.

    When seconds count I don’t want to have to get to my gun safe. I’d rather call 911 and grab a can of mace. My family may get teary eyed but they can live with that.

    the average person will hesitate before using lethal force…
    the average criminal probably won’t…so who gets shot?

    “There is no earthly need for lethal self defense.”

    Home invasion robberies, sometimes including rapes and murders were gaining popularity amongst the criminal elements, hitting those “quiet middle class neighborhoods.”
    Then an amazing thing happened, people started shooting the home invasion types and the frequency dropped off amazingly quickly. To the credit of the police they just considered it ’self defense."

    Cool, I want some anti-aircraft turrets and a nuclear missile silo in my backyard.

    At the time, muskets WERE assault weapons.

    King, that’s why one reason they need to add in a ’secure storage" clause to the law.

    It seems that Mr. Szep is suggesting that the 2nd amendment was written in the 18th century when “arming” oneself was completely different in scope and magnitude, and that now that times have changed, it is time to modify the 2nd amendment to reflect current “arms”.

    I have guns, knives, and mace, all will work, and I know how to use them, but when it comes to actual “home defense”, I also have a dachshund who barks. THAT, even a “yappie” dog, will chase off a burglar or home invader faster than a gun being in a drawer, closet, or in the house. It is the noise of the canine burglar alarm that works, quite well.

    When I was a kid, we had a standard poodle, about 120 pounds worth. She captured TWO burglars (separate occasiaons) and held them for police, as she was trained to do. One required only about 15 stitches on his arm and throat. The other took over 120 stitches to sew his buttocks back on after Jill hit him the first time. She was “non-lethal”.

    While I was going to school in Santa Maria, two escaped prisoners tried to escape across Vandenburg AFB, in the missile test range. The guard dogs killed them both.

    A blind friend prefers shepherds as her guide dog, because NOBODY will mess with her with her companion. She has had some “negative” experiences when she used a Labrador. Of course guide dogs definitely are NOT trained for protection, or to attack, but even a German Shepherd in harness is more than enough “intimidation” for most folks thinking about getting “cute”.

    Bottom line, our four-legged friends can indeed be a much better, and more affectionate, “defender”,and you can let the kids play with them.
