G,day O sung wo, found your post is close to my thoughts
You will be aware of the scruffy young men turning up in court looking like a bank manager
I Had a roll in that process, wanting to help, I talked to and even transported some, to a place they could hear others stories at
And believe me want better outcomes for them, deeply understand many are victims of a poor upbringing
However what are we to think of the young women [ice?] knocking over old ladies at ATMs?
And despite the shoot em up type seen here how will a frail 80 year old victim shoot? will that person one day kill a visitor out of mistaken fear
And the relatives standing over their elders at home
YES some have awful lives ICE destroys some, but how can we fix even that if we condemn prison before the perpetrator even gets to court
Protecting the old, to at least the level some want to do so for the criminal makes sense to me

Belly,

"And despite the shoot em up type seen here how will a frail 80 year old victim shoot?"
Accurately, one would hope.

" will that person one day kill a visitor out of mistaken fear"
Probably not.

Tell us, Belly, what would you do as someone is breaking in your front door?

Do you really believe that old people, or any people for that matter, should be denied any means of defence?

Issy, one of yours?

Four people dead, and one injured in Darwin last night.

Police believe the same weapon was used on all victims - a pump-action, 12-gauge shotgun.

Yep! That's what we need more guns in the community to keep us safe!

Issy, you know full well that the person most likely shot with a gun, is the gun owner, the second most likely is a family member.

Some old fart sitting behind a door 24/7 with a loaded shot gun, that's all we need.

Got this in an email the other day.

A shotgun-armed pre-teen vs. illegal alien home invaders.
Two illegal aliens, Ralphel Resindez, 23, and Enrico Garza, 26, probably
believed they would easily overpower home-alone 11-year-old Patricia
Harrington after her father had left their two-story home.
It seems these crooks never learned two things:
1. They were in Montana.
2. Patricia had been a clay-shooting champion since she was nine.
Patricia was in her upstairs room when the two men broke through the
front door of the house. She quickly ran to her father's room and
grabbed his 12-gauge Mossberg 500 shotgun.
Resindez was the first to get up to the second floor, only to be the
first to catch a near point blank blast of buckshot from the
11-year-old's knee-crouch aim. He suffered fatal wounds to his
abdomen and genitals.
When Garza ran to the foot of the stairs, he took a blast to the
left shoulder and staggered out into the street where he bled to death
before medical help could arrive. It was found out later that Resindez was
armed with a stolen 45-caliber handgun he took during another home
invasion robbery. That victim, 50-year-old David 0'Burien, was not so
lucky. He died from stab wounds to the chest.

Ever wonder why good stuff never makes NBC, CBS, PBS, MSNBC, CNN, or ABC news ?

An 11-year-old girl, properly-trained, defended her home, and
herself against two murderous, illegal immigrants and she wins.
She is still alive. Now THAT is Gun Control !!
Thought for the day: Calling an illegal alien an 'undocumented
immigrant' is like calling a drug dealer an 'unlicensed pharmacist.'

Is Mise,

I would set off my personal alarm and call the police, and security lights would be coming on all over the place. I doubt very much that your average housebreaker would persist. If I had to, I would defend my wife and myself with household items that could never be classified as weapons, but nevertheless could inflict nasty wounds.

If you use firearms, and wound or kill an intruder, you are liable to be charged. Not fair? Nope. But that's the law. The only person who deals out 'justice' to scum bags and gets way with it is Liam Neeson in movies.

You start waving guns around, and you can expect big trouble. We are talking about real life here, not Hollywood.
