And Now, Some Sanity From The Political World


LINK
Something is just plain wrong when a citizen is required, by law, to retreat from confrontation when his home is invaded. The sanctity of a man's home must be recognised, and defended, if it is to be his home at all.
That's just the way I feel about it.

It's good to see that at least they 'get it' in North Dakota.

As you can pretty much guess, Massachusetts is a "duty to flee" state. We're also not the most gun-friendly state in the union.

Good thing the English didn't have these laws in 1775...

kal,maybe you can verify:
i've heard that MA gun safety(?) laws are so strict, that revolution era muskets hanging on the wall of the statehouse have trigger locks on them.

The bill passed; but it was still only by 6 votes. There are still 44 bozo legislators in N Dak who think you should give the bad guy the opportunity to kill you first.

We just had a case in our sleepy little hamlet where a jealous ex-boyfriend broke into a couples home, this is after he had threatened to kill the guy, and he was met with two shotgun blasts. He had a cocked handgun on him at the time. These legislators would have preferred that this couple live in absolute terror and possibly get killed themselves. It's ridiculous the mindset these people have. (until it happens to them or someone they know)

Gino, that was just a joke used by the Minority Leader during a gun debate back when I used to work in the State Senate.

Last time I checked, that was an urban legend. I'll see if I can grab a picture Monday for you.

I am a peacenik, but I also don't believe in taking chances on getting killed and/or raped by someone who isn't supposed to be in my home.

Good for ND!

A shotgun can solve a variety of problems.

palm boy:
as can a baseball bat.

folks seem to think this is about guns. its not its about all variety of deadly force previous not allowed.

i'm just vindictive enough to leave the gun in the drawer and pummel the bastard to pulp. i think the blood splatter would be cool.
