Why Not?

An eighty-year-old man took a couple of shots at two young men trying to steal his trailer, seriously wounding one. The cops let him plead guilty to attempted manslaughter after initially charging him with attempted first degree murder. They say “You can’t use deadly force in defense of property.” Why not? The criminals use deadly force to steal it! The man says he didn’t mean to hit anybody; he was trying to scare them off. Of course, that didn’t mean anything to the anti-gun politicians. He shot at the bad guys, so they ASSUME he was trying to kill them. I think people ought to be able to do what it takes to defend their lives AND property from criminals who would KILL them to steal it. Part of his punishment was to “give up his guns.” Telling the next criminal he will be unarmed, so go ahead and rob him! (9 News Denver)

We Need More of This

In Denver last night, two guys tried to rob liquor stores. One ran out the door and got away when the man behind the counter produced his own gun and threatened the robber with it. Self defense without firing a shot. The other one didn’t run when confronted by the counterman’s own gun, and was shot. He’s in the hospital now, getting better. Probably at taxpayer’s expense, since he’s a prisoner. The other guy was caught later. More would-be robbers need to be confronted with guns. Maybe they’d go into another business. (9 News, Denver)
