I don't need a gun to protect myself, but apparently a lot of the Chicken Little commandos in this forum would wet their pants if they didn't have a gun to hide behind.
Ah, Bill Clay, mixed martial arts master are you? So I suppose you think this woman should've risked being raped and killed and risked the lives of her twin 9-year-olds by challenging this home intruder to a fist fight.
This 65-year-old woman should've Kung Fu chopped her way through the five armed thugs who walked into her store intent on robbing the place.
This 11-year-old girl should've Judo flipped three home invaders, and again risked being raped and murdered because an internet warrior like you thinks that she's a coward for hiding behind a gun?
Gotta love idiots like you who subscribe to a Middle School Machismo which has no bearing on reality. Here's something you should try sometime, Bill. Try GROWING UP. If you think you can Jackie Chan your way through six armed robbers then more power to you, but that doesn't mean you have the right to penalize the rest of us for having a brain. If I'm in a life-or-death situation I care about my own survival and those of my friends or family, not some idiotic childish machismo. Not a long while back I had to face just that prospect, and you know what? Going into the situation with that idiotic child mentality which you evince here wouldn't have done me any good, it wouldn't have done my old aunt any good, and it certainly wouldn't have done my little 8-year-old autistic cousin which she was babysitting home alone any good. But hey, who cares about the lives and well being of an old woman and a small autistic girl when INTERNET HONOR is at stake, am I right?
The simple fact is, if you do not own a firearm and know how to shoot, you are prey to any person or group that is stronger than you. Period. Mr Kung Fu Clay may be on top of his game at this moment. Good for him! I suppose he plans to never be injured, outnumbered, or to grow old.
