    Best friend of armed citizen is an armed neighbor

    :celebrate:celebrate:celebrate:celebrate

    Clobbered over the head, what’s a guy to do? In Vern’s case, he ducked into another room, grabbed a handgun and after a struggle, he shot his attacker in the shoulder. By now, the neighbor showed up with…you might have guessed it…his own gun. (We can hear the audible gasps of CeaseFire Seattleites: “They have LOADED guns in their homes?!” Well, yeah, guns don’t work too well in emergencies if they’re not loaded.)

    I don't remember where I got this snip but I think it applies here:

    The America we live in today is not the same country our grandparents experienced. They were a generation that helped each other. They were neighbors who watched out for the interests of their neighbors. A large part of the population was involved in WWII, and they had to depend upon each other for their very survival. Sometimes the only thing these men and women had in common was the fact that they were Americans. Yet they cared for each other.

    Was just reading your article, I must not have been updated, because last I saw in the news (couple days ago) the guy was breaking into his car...and then came after Vern when he came but oh well.

    *Off topic warning*

    Anyways, you mentioned security/911, and I was just thinking, if 911 provided a TEXTING service, there would be more calls for 911, and a lot more people taken away because of it being safer to text in some situations where you have an angry psycho who might whoopass if he/she hears someone on phone with 911. But then getting everyone to text with all the right info would take so long since some people are just plain stupid with providing simple information....

    Just an idea, didn't mean to threadpoop.


    Been harassed by the police? Yelled at by the anti-gun neighbors? Mother doesn't approve?

    Then this is the place for you! Click here to get back at them!

    The sheriff's office updated the report, which I read and apparently nobody else did, that said the bad guy had smashed through the sliding glass door of Vern's house.

    This guy is damn lucky Vern didn't blow him back to the Mississippi. Vern's pal probably ruined this guy's dancing career.

    OMG! How dare them for putting their life on the line and resorting to firearms! Should have just called 911! It would have been safer for everyone involved!!!

    I think it does apply, and it might not be the same as our grandparents experienced but our Fore Fathers forsaw things to come and made provisions just for these times. They werevery wise men.

    Thomas Jefferson: "God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion.The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is
    wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts
    they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions,
    it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. ...
    And what country can preserve its liberties, if its rulers are not
    warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of
    resistance? Let them take arms. The remedy is to set them right as
    to the facts, pardon and pacify them. What signify a few lives lost
    in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from
    time to time, with the blood of patriots and tyrants.
    It is its natural manure."

    Thomas Jefferson: "No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government"


    George Washington: "The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere and everywhere restrains evil interference - they deserve a place of honor with all that's good"


    Peter Venetoklis: "Taking my gun away because I might shoot someone is like cutting my tongue out because I might yell `Fire!' in a crowded theater."

    If you voted for Obama to prove you are not a racist...
    what will you do now to prove you are not stupid?

    "The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of "liberalism," they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened." - Norman Thomas

    "They who can who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve niether liberty nor safety." - Ben Franklin
