A Human Right Vindicated

Sarah McKinley

I salute you. Having been devastated by the loss of a husband, you showed the grit to defend your home, your baby, and yourself from hoodlums. You probably never wanted to kill anyone and never thought you would have to but when push came to shove you came through for your baby and yourself and did it. You weren't looking for trouble . . . it came looking for you and you were ready for it.

There is no honest answer to the slogan "When guns are outlawed only outlaws will have guns."

There is real evil in the world and those who want you or your possessions or your family or perhaps just the thrill of the kill will usually target those who cannot or will not defend themselves. Wishful thinking has never saved a life or stopped a crime.

Mrs McKinley was talking to the police just before she shot. Had she waited for the police she could well be dead, or at least badly hurt or raped. Perhaps even her baby would be dead or gone.

The right to defend yourself, your family or your property is a human right and needs to be respected as such. Police are good, valuable and important but they can only be so many places at one time. There will be times when law-abiding citizens will not have the time to wait for the police and only they, and what tools they have, stand between them and a would be killer/rapist/kidnapper. Let them have and keep the tools they need.

Glad to see you are blogging again, The 2nd amendment is such an important one that those against it make me want to scream. If you don't like guns, don't have them, but let those who want them have them.

I'm proud of this Okie. She's a hell of a good mom. Kill to protect her child rather than kill the child to protect her right to be a slut.

I'm surprised you guys never talk about the more frequent occasions when dad pulls out some steel and blows away the family.

I agree with AOW.

And I agree with this post.

Self-protection and preservation is a basic right.

Sorry, Ducky, those are far less frequent.
