The kids of JAycee have never attended school
and Jaycees own socialization essentially stopped when she was 11. REally saad.
Can we call David in to adminster some punishment?
David is not the punishment guy (as a general rule); David is the self-defense guy.
David does not follow in the footsteps of Jack Ruby.
Rather than avenging
David prefers that it had been prevented
in the first place by successful defenses
Whenever I read of this sort of thing, I always wish that the victims
had not obayed the liberal
gun control laws.
Weakness makes good victims
, from the predators
Its better to be tried by 12 than to be carried by 6
or to suffer the effects that were manifested in this case for years on end.
The story always has a happy ending (or happier ending)
when the victims dispatch the predators. When thay kidnapped her,
it was in a contest of power. The predators depended
being too weak n feeble to resist -- like a butterfly.
The purpose of being well armed is to be able to control the situation
as possible, if a predatory emergency arises, as it did in this case.
Part of defensive preparation is tactical training & practice for accurate shot placement.
From the age of 8, I took measures to not be defenseless.
I never actually needed those defenses until well into adulthood,
1000s of miles away, but it is better to HAVE
a gun and NOT NEED
than it is to NEED
a gun and NOT HAVE
In this situation, or in one like Polly Klass,
I think it 'd have been a much better result
if one of the victims had
opened up with some good firepower
on Richard Davis with his knife or the same on this pervert.
The moral issue, the logical issue of gun control resolves itself down to one question:
does the human victim have a natural right to possess
as much power as the predator?
The Founding Fathers who wrote the Bill of Rights
are on MY
side concerning personal defense. It was deemed a virtue.
It still shoud be.
