    Sometimes you can't wait for the police to come and assist you. You have to be able to protect yourself and your home and your family. You have to be able to do what you need to do. Sometimes that's why people are dead.
    Yes ma'am, Miss Williams, you are correct.
    Guard with jealous attention the public liberty.
    Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel.
    Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force.
    Whenever you give up that force, you are inevitably ruined.

    Sniper rifle? looks to me like it could be a higher powered air rifle. Hardly a sniper rifle

    Great for her in getting the word out.

    But then to the media any rifle with a scope is a sniper rifle.

    There were officers on every corner with a helicopter in the sky but only one person was able to confront the thieves - a woman named Marilyn Williams, "I heard my husband and he was like, 'get the gun, get the gun...shoot him, shoot him,'" Williams said.

    Good on you Mrs. Williams.

    ...he was like, 'get the gun, get the gun...
    Glad they had to opportunity to do so. Many unarmed victims are so because they have a firearm, but it is not on them at the time. Hopefully a lesson learned: the reason for sidearms.

    Isn't that the truth? All pistols are Glocks, all semi-auto rifles are AK-47s or assault weapons, and all weapons with scopes are sniper rifles. It makes sending their anti-gun message easier with those handy guidelines.

    Sharpshooter

    I think that journalists all rely on THIS type of info when deciding on what to call a weapon:

    It's a PCP (pre-charged pneumatic) air rifle. You pump them up with a high pressure hand pump or from a bottle.
