I love this line.

"The measures - House Bills 5142 and 5143 - were referred to the House Judiciary Committee Sept. 7, but no dates have been set for action. The two-bill package assumes that a person who forcibly enters or intrudes in a home or occupied vehicle intends to kill or hurt the owner or occupant.

Isn't that the opposite of our judicial system, which operates on the presumption of innocent until proven guilty? This law presupposes the worst."


I suppose the guy standing at the foot of your bed with a knife needs a fair trail. [roll] I can't belive this guy made it through high school.

Please if you read this post, take the time to email the author your thoughts.

It is his right. A SPEEDY and fair trial, the proper verdict (guilty, obviously) and appropriate punishment.

Or, a summary execution, due to his obviously having malice in forethought, or just "wading in the shallow end of the gene pool".

Either one works.

The editor? Any cowardly MORON that thinks criminals are misunderstood. (Well, they ARE misunderstood, by the judges, media and Liberals, not by the rest of us.)
 
E-mail sent, bet I don't get a response, or get a nasty one.

What a load of tripe. The writer of this editoral nonsense is both a coward and a moron. He should be forced to go to a high crime area and wipe his face with a large wad of $100 bills, since he wants to help criminals so much.


I don't condone killing anyone, but if a person forcible enters someone's domicile, I think they've likely got malice in forethought. Of course, I could be wrong since we all know that criminals are such law abiding citizens. Since you folks are so dumb, that was sarcasm in the last sentence.

You're Kidding Right? I mean, the people that apply for for CCW Permits are law abiding citizens. It's the Criminals that get their weapons illegally. Criminals are the ones will try to break into a home or car. And if I remember correctly, that's pretty much the definition of a criminal.

You state that this if for, "a person who forcibly enters or intrudes in a home or occupied vehicle intends to kill or hurt the owner or occupant." Don't you think that if they are forcibly trying to enter with intent to harm, they will have a weapon? I don't think a law abiding person would shoot someone trying to get into their house or car with a bouquet of roses.

You're arguments are reaching for validity. You say that it's discussing forcibly entrance, but then say that it gives people to shoot for a kid cutting across the grass. That's asinine.

I would think as a reporter, you would make valid points rather than just willy-nilly make arguments that make no real points.
 
Here is my reply to idot boys article. Harsh and below the belt, but sometimes its the only way to get idiots to open their eyes.

Well, in reguards to your article on why someone like me would choose to shoot a person who breaks into my home in the middle of the night, just read this article.

Apparently your the type of person who would let your own child be molested by a pedophile because he has rights and due process and needs help.

Me, I'd rather protect my loved ones and prove to them when I say I would not let anyone harm them.

I really feel sorry for your wife and kids since your the type of person who puts the welfare of a person intent on doing physical harm to a family member than your own family members wellbeing.

In regards to your article titled "Welcome back, Wyatt Earp",

It is obvious from your article (and I use that term loosely) that you have no sense what so ever. You have no sense of self preservation, no sense of protecting your family, and quite honestly no common sense! What would make you, or anyone else who has enough brain cells to perform basic thought, believe that ANYONE who forcibly enters your house would have anything on their mind other than bad intensions? I mean wake up! Do you believe that they might just be breaking in to offer you a late night snack? Maybe they are breaking into your house to give you money. Yeah! That’s it. How about this, while you are tied to a chair, watching your wife get brutally raped and murdered before this honest and good intentioned intruder makes his way to your children then you, I will be taking my time explaining to the police why he has 3 holes in him. But I will be making that explanation while holding my daughters hand, and hugging my wife.
I do not condone violence in any way shape or form. I do condone my RIGHT to live.


Thank GOD for natural selection.
 
Don't forget to call him and say hello too..

This email is in response to this article http://www.lenconnect.com/articles/2005/09/26/news/news05.txt

I am honestly quite amazed at the amount of ignorance that was spewed out in your article. It is quite obvious you have never been exposed to the bad element in society. I’m sure you live in a nice white suburb, protected from any criminal element, where the police patrol regularly. As hard as it may be for you to believe there are actually people out there that want to hurt, rape, and kill humans. I know it’s probably a shock, but they exist. I don’t understand how you think people shouldn’t be allowed to protect themselves. It’s probably arrogance.

This line from you and I quote:

“Isn't that the opposite of our judicial system, which operates on the presumption of innocent until proven guilty? This law presupposes the worst.”


It’s priceless. It is amazing that someone who is as sheltered and uncultured as you can have such a strong opinion on people with a need to protect themselves. I think before you go and spew your obviously far left political banter, you should try doing some research on crime, gun crime, and other states with no-retreat laws to form an educated opinion.

Wait why am I wasting my time? You’re a liberal, you’ll never let the facts get in the way.
 
Unlisted home phone. Wouldn't it be a hoot if someone actually published these jerks names, so the criminals would know where the easy pickings are?

The do it to CCW permit holders, why not journalists and other trash?



ETA - I'm not a very nice person, when it comes to dealing with this kind of person.

Dear Sir:

I know you have been getting some rather venomous emails about your recent article, and rightly so. But let me explain the three reasons why I support the individual right to keep and bear arms:

1. CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHT: The Second amendement wasn't included in the Bill of Rights to protect hunting - contrary to what some may lead you to believe. The amendment purely acknowledges the God-given right to protect your own life and liberty, and that of your loved ones.

2. CIVIL LAW RIGHT: I understand the laws of "use of deadly force." I keep my firearm concealed at all times, and would never even unholster unless I or my loved ones was in immediate danger of serious bodily harm or death. I also understand that numerous court cases have established the role and responsibility of our community police force - they are not legally responsible for your personal protection. That responsibility is purely up to you.

3. MORAL RIGHT: I believe in God, and I believe in the Commandments. But a Bible scholar will tell you the Commandment "Thou shall not Kill" should actually have been translated to "Thou shall not Murder." There is a difference. I feel I have the moral right to protect my life, and that of my family, so we may learn, grow and contribute to the good of society. All life is sacred - but I will not let someone who is attacking me (and someone who enters my house forcefully and uninvited is attacking me) prevail against me.

I would encourage you to do more research in this area before your next article. The facts may yet prevail against political dogma.

Adam and Derek - good letters.

Here's mine (which I just hit the send key on)...

Dear Sir,

I just finished reading your article, "Welcome Back, Wyatt Earp".

You've never been a victim of a violent crime, have you? I have. I was raped at knife point, stalked, and, my ex-husband tried to kill me. I assure you, sir, that had you ever been on the receiving end of a criminal's intent, you would not be worried about a time warp or that someone you know might be carrying.

Do please do some checking on the crime stats from states where concealed carry laws are in effect. The crime rates lowered when good, decent people began defending themselves. Let's also take a look at Washington, DC. They outlawed hand guns. Which direction has the crime rate gone in? Not down, I assure you.

Florida just enacted a similar law. I do not see the bodies piling up in households or the streets, do you? Or are you just so much of a bleeding heart liberal that facts and actual figures are beyond you scope of acceptance?

I will tell you this. I will NEVER be a victim again. Self defense is a basic human right, and should anyone try to break in to my home with the intent of doing me or any member of my family harm, I will exercise that right.

With regards,
Lynne Dube
 
Thank you all. People like him just P me off no end. They stand on their pedistals and preach about the dangers of owning a gun. For all the times I was victimized - not ONE of them was because of a gun. I wholeheartedly wish that each and every one of them has just single moment like I endured....just ONE. That's all I ask. Spread the wealth, ya know? They want me to share my money with everyone else, so why not the bad times too? I want just one of those SOB's to walk 1 yard in MY shoes, THEN tell me I'm wrong to be a gun owner.

Sorry...I'm getting stressed...I'll stop ranting now.

Thank you C (and Skald), but I shouldn't have to be an insirpation to anyone who's a gun owner.

Not to get off topic (which it isn't really, but close) I've wanted to start a group of women (not just women, but we've been the ones who're usually the vic's) who've decided that enough is enough and they've become gun owners because of what happened to them. The only problem is that few women will come out and talk about what happened to them. There's still a sterotype pinned on women who've been raped, which mostly comes from within and from ourselves, but it's there none the less. I do not enjoy talking about it - trust me - but if the one thing I accomplish in life is to show another victim she doesn't have to feel helpless and defenseless anymore, then my work on this plane will be a success and I can cross over happy.

No, but you let people know that they do have an option. Something that this asshat doesn't.



edited to add the asshat part

A couple of suggestions, Lynne.

Start a forum (contact Derek for HOW to do it).

Get your message out to a few other groups, and concentrate on the self-defense issue.

In your forum, make sure to have info on getting setup with the proper equipment, training and permits.
 
Already thought about those things Nickle - health issues got in the way tho. I've also talked to a few other females who've been a vic (not to the extent as me) and they thought it was a good idea, but wasn't overly enthused about becoming a member.

Worry not, it's still on the burner, but it's the back one for the time being.
