A hero or a liability?

DETROIT -- A 16-year-old was killed Friday during a gun battle inside a Detroit McDonald's, Local 4 has learned.
Sources said the teen tried robbing the fast food restaurant, which is on Six Mile Road near Livernois Avenue, by jumping over the counter but was confronted by a retired police officer who was also inside.
Detroit Police Lt. Dwane Blackman said the teen and retired officer were both armed and exchanged more than a dozen shots. The teen was killed.
No one else inside was hurt.

Dead criminal? Check.
No injured innocents? Check.

Sounds like a hero to me.

A cop who gets it.

From a law enforcement officer on the complete opposite end of the spectrum from Daniel Harless:

“One of the things I love about living in Texas is the Texas Castle Law,” Ingram said.

“I can guarantee you that if someone breaks into my house, I’m going to shoot him,” he said.

“I really mean what I said, if burglars don’t want to get shot, then they need to stop breaking into people’s homes,” said the Sheriff.

Amen, Sheriff. We need more like you and fewer like Daniel Harless in law enforcement.

More trouble in Sarah Brady Paradise.

Six Killed In Knife Attack On British Island
LONDON -- A man was arrested Sunday on suspicion of stabbing six people to death, including three children, on the British island of Jersey in what was the deadliest crime in the community's living memory, police said.

Naturally the victims were disarmed by their government. I thought these types of mass killings were supposed to stop when you ban guns because guns make it so easy to kill lots of people very quickly? I guess not. Well, one thing gun bans do ensure is that the victims are as defenseless as possible.

Trouble in Sarah Brady Paradise?

After reading about and watching the riots, I have to wonder how many business owners, shopkeepers, and various other property owners said to themselves, "I'm sure glad the government doesn't allow me to own or use a gun for defense."

And to imagine, it all started out as an exercise in gun control.

A happier place?

And apparently know nothing about history.

via The Independent fact the world would be a different and happier place if guns were few and their possession a matter of strict official control.

A. C. Grayling's ideal world wouldn't be a happier place. It would be a place where where the strong ("properly constituted, trained and controlled agencies of governments" as he calls them) are free to do as they please to the weak (that's the rest of us). Grayling's world where "guns are few and their possession a matter of strict official control" does exist though. More often than not, in third world hell holes where ethnic cleansing is a part of daily life and the machete is the weapon of choice against those to be cleansed.
