    I don't think your argument will bring much comfort to those who mourn the death of their loved ones who were killed at the hands of the violent criminals freed through early release programs pushed by ProgLibs in Sacremento.
    Another leap to conclusions. I'm not for legalizing drugs. Your faulty logic and reasoning fails you again. I'm still waiting for your solution....unless the only one you have is spending more tax payer money while crying about out of control government spending at the same time. I not only provided you with solutions but showed you that those solutions are working to reduce overcrowding in the prisons which means that those violent criminals you talk about will have bed space and won't be released. But like a typical conservative....you have all kinds of cries and complaints, but no solutions.

    If she'd had an AR-15 she probably wouldn't have missed. Too bad she did miss, it would be one less criminal society would have to worry about later.

    People make a big deal out of pit bulls, but most of them are pretty friendly. If a burglar breaks in, they're just as likely to show the intruder where the good stuff is.

    Rotties, on the other hand, are known for being protective and territorial.
    A pit bull would be great if the intruder were another dog.

    Nobody is taking away your guns, you don't have to get so obsessively defensive about them that you post every positive outcome in the universe that involved a gun.

    I mean, I feel like I'm constantly reading liberals accusing conservatives of wanting children to die because they support the Second Amendment. Shouldn't the opposite be true?
    I guess it's possible for you to "feel" this way even if it's not true. You mind pointing out a handful of liberals on these forums that have said what you are accusing them of, since it happens so constantly?

    Gotta love that Conservative logic.....
    I believe we should arm all law-abiding citizens, and build more cemeteries for the criminals.

    If we're going to report horror stories, we need to report when the good guys win. Thoughts?
    My thought?

    Nothing in the last round of proposed gun regulations that were voted down by the senate would have even came close to preventing this woman from defending her home. So, good for her, glad she's ok, but in terms of debating gun control, it has little bearing on anything in my opinion.

    I don't doubt that for a moment!! I've always had German Shepherds. Their bark is fierce; their desire to protect their pack is strong; and they're very intelligent. They're also easier to neutralize than your lil' ankle biters. A dog trainer told me if I really wanted to protect my dog, I'd lock him in a bedroom when I wasn't home. Thought being that if someone did decide to break in my home hearing his bark, they were prepared to kill him. Your chihuahuas? They wouldn't even be able to catch 'em. Ha!
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."
