May I see your First, Fourth And Thirteenth Amendment Permits, please?
Guns do not make you a killer. I
think killing makes you a killer. You can kill
someone with a baseball bat or a car, but no one is
trying to ban you from driving to the ball game. (Andy Rooney RIP)
This story just made USA Today's Top Stories on their homepage. Not often that you get "good" national coverage of a gun story.

"When seconds count between living or dying, the police are only minutes away."
MSNBC fill-in host Craig Melvin asked Sheriff Chuck Wright...
"Sheriff, if law enforcement is charged with protecting the public, then, then, then why should that not be sufficient? Why should folks have to go out and get guns and arm themselves if we've got cops?"
To which Wright responded:
"We can't be everywhere, and we are a fool if we tell everybody that we can take care of all of our problems."
Melvin: "If women are shooting potential attackers, aren't they presuming guilt before innocence? What if a woman kills an attacker? Isn't that opening another whole legal can of worms?"
Sheriff Wright: "Well, it's easy to fix that. Just don't attack a woman.... I know that this is controversial, but I do believe that people who believe in the Second Amendment and believe that they should arm themselves have a right to do so, as long as they're trained properly."
Fox news is carrying this story as well. How fitting that it break on the first day of Concealed Carry in WI.

That's a big "IF". As in a non-congruous conditional statement (big assumption on media'a part) IE: Warren v. DC . "they" (LEO's) are NOT charged with protecting the public. The public is left to feel/believe that LE is, when in fact they are not."Sheriff, if law enforcement is charged with protecting the public, then, then, then why should that not be sufficient? Why should folks have to go out and get guns and arm themselves if we've got cops?"
To which Wright responded:
Ibid"We can't be everywhere, and we are a fool if we tell everybody that we can take care of all of our problems."
The capacity to attack should not be confused with an attack. We all have the capacity to do good or evil. It is the action/acting out that makes all the difference in the world.Melvin: "If women are shooting potential attackers,
Don't do that! It is the job of our illegal system!aren't they presuming guilt before innocence?
Congratulate her for surviving the attack. Real attack? Then a real response is in order, period. After a righteous shoot, call 911 so they can start the paperwork and process the (former) animal.What if a woman kills an attacker?
Not if it is a righteous shoot.Isn't that opening another whole legal can of worms?"
IT HAS BEEN A WHILE SINCE I've seen so much uncommon sense (as Chesterton puts it) all in one statement by LEO. Sheriff Wright is 100% on the ball. My hats off to him. And we have had to endure "Chief" Arts. (Spoke with Arts once, face to face. Not very encouraging. Maybe just me.)
Hoping I have all this formatted properly, as it is my first post. Just recently registered with the forum. Starting my learning curve with this..... as of.... Now. Thank you all for all the good info and help keeping abreast of all things 2A. Here goes......
