One of the more sickening recent editorials. The writer never touches on how realistic airsoft pistols look or that the customer may have, had the pistols been real, saved several lives, to include his own.
I hope I never have to take a human life, but I just as devoutly hope that, if it ever comes down to a situation similar to this one, that I have the courage and steadiness to do what is necessary.
Vigilante? The writer needs to look up a definition of the word. This grandfather does not fit the definition at all.
From Wikipedia (not the best source, but I'm in a hurry):
A vigilante (Spanish pronunciation: [bixiˈlănte̞], Portuguese pronunciation: [viʒiˈlɐ̃nt(ɕ)]) is a private individual (or (pl.) group of individuals) who undertakes law enforcement without legal authority.
