According to research by Lott and others, there are hundreds of thousands of persons every year who could do something similar with their personal experiences of using a gun to defend themselves. There are many survivors of violent crime who were not able to defend themselves who have decided they won't rely on luck next time. These persons also have powerful personal stories to tell.
Such stories tend to evoke both reason and emotions in favor of RKBA. We need to encourage and assist those with these experiences to share them to the benefit of RKBA.

And for those types NO amount of logic will satisfy them. That said, if you didn't find her measured testimony to be beneficial to RKBA as a whole, you leave me confounded.The lizzurds are more than happy to have had a different outcome for this citizen.
As are LAWS in general; any law broken will eventually lead to men with guns coming to get you at some point. Let's try to stick together as gun owners and leave the in fighting to the anti's.Rights are always maintained, in the end, by force.
she has had time and did stage her presentation to near perfection...just as giffords, brady, etc. for the opposing team
