Cleveland Plain Dealer (Ohio) ^ | 5/15/07 | Phillip Morris

It's funny how a gun can in stantly change your perspec tive on things, make you wish you could rewrite history.

State Rep. Michael DeBose, a southside Cleveland Democrat, discovered this lesson the night of May 1, when he thought he was going to die. That's the night he wished he had that gun vote back.

Yeh, when it comes right down to it, how many liberals would allow themselves to be killed with a gun because they don’t believe in CCW?

“When I started running, the short boy stopped chasing and went back to the car. But the tall boy with the gun kept following me. I ran to the corner house and started banging on Mrs. Jones’ door.”

Typical liberal wussy-boy! Help me Mrs. Jones!!!!!

The difference between this nadless wonder and a real man is a chasm.

“There are too many people who are just evil and mean-spirited. They will hurt you for no reason. If more people were packing guns, it might serve as a deterrent.

“But there obviously are far deeper problems that we need to address,” he added, as he suddenly seemed to realize he sounded like a gun enthusiast.”...

Now, he IS a gun enthusiast.

I thought most states without CCW permits still allowed the elected officials to carry guns? Am I confused?

Don’t know about the elected official issue, but Ohio allows CCW permits. Maybe it’s the Caliphate of Cleveland that forbids it.

Up until now, he chose not to have a permit. In the article, he says he is going to get one, and so is his wife.

I’m going to hire some bad goons to change liberals into conservatives, one mugging at a time. Crime should help our side, instead of being a tool of the left.

I think anybody who finds himself unarmed, out of arm's reach, and facing a man with a gun is going to run . . . if he's smart. And making a lot of noise is the best way to cause the assailant to retreat (attracts witnesses) . . . unless of course you have a gun . . . .

The delicious irony is that he put himself in the position of being able to do nothing BUT run and bang on Mrs. Jones's door . . .

Thanks...fantastic story. These burglars were a cold bucket of water on this guy voting his conscience. (Voting your conscience is great and all, but facts should have something to do with it too.)

Talk about your happy ending.
