    And I thought I was going to change your mind on this particular subject of gun control.

    And your partisan-based standards are obvious. However, if you can show equal critical messages you posted on anti-gun anecdotal threads I'd be proven mistaken.

    You are apparently ignorant of my stance on gun issues. Nice try though to claim my argument is based on partisanship, when in fact they are based on knowing how to actually debate the issue.

    You should go rip MOOT a new one for her piss-poor, painfully weak anecdotal OP explaining to her how to actually debate an issue.

    On Thursday night, Feb. 21, around 8:00, a Houston family was in the middle of baking a cake when they were attacked in their own home. There was a knock at the door and the father saw a young man standing at the door who he presumed was a friend of his son. Upon opening the door slightly, three armed intruders then violently forced their way into the home, as reported by KHOU.
    After forcing their way in, the intruders then knocked the father down to the floor. They then proceeded to go after the mother. At which point, the son grabbed his father's gun, shooting and killing one of the intruders. The other two intruders quickly fled the home, but were soon caught by police.
    No charges against the son are expected to be filed, as he was acting in self-defense. According to the report, Harry Moulder, a neighbor of the family, stated:
    "People can’t go breaking into people’s homes and not expect some sort of consequence."
    The young man was just doing what he had to do in order to protect his family.

    A very responsible and clear headed young man.
    This is wrong. The son should have called 911 and waited 20 minutes for the police to arrive.

    Now I like your "evolving" position better, yet it still has plenty of room for improvement. This now implies that on any given day (or other time period) that as many guns are actually used to stop/prevent crime as to commit crime. That is more likely true, yet still very hard to prove, as a prevented crime (non-event?) is much less likely to make the news (or be recorded as a statistic), compared to a crime (event) that always has an innocent victim, thus is much more likely to make the news.

    The simple fact, of the matter, is that the vast majority of guns are never used to commit any crime at all, criminals comprise a teeny, tiny percentage of the population, and those criminals actually using guns are a minority even within that small group of criminals. Any gun control measure will therefore affect far, far more law abiding gun owners than any of the very few criminal gun users.

    The whole concept of depriving freedom of choice to, or increasing the administrative cost burden upon, the vast majority of law abiding gun owners in the mere hope that it will deter some tiny number of criminals from using "illegal" guns is simply an insane policy.

    Re: Young man in Texas protects parents from violent intruders

    Redress how would you debate the issue from a standpoint of a gun rights person? Especially when his or her opposition is standing on the graves of the children killed at Sandy Hook attempting to demonize gun rights folks by bombarding them with emotional examples of why they should give up their rights. I say level the playing field. Gun rights people should use the same tactics as the antis do. Emotional arguments work. Hell Obama won re-election based on emotional arguments. Scaring old people and the middle class.

    This is wrong, those deadbeat parents shouldn't be depending on children to protect them.

    Re: Young man in Texas protects parents from violent intruders

    I feel that charges should be brought against the parents for child endangerment, because they didn't properly secure the weapon. In more cases than not, the children will end up hurting themselves in this scenario, and I also feel that manslaughter charges should be brought against the son, because he didn't have to aim to kill. He could have even tackled one of the suspects instead of resorting to lethal force.

    Odd that this was not your response to Obama and others mourning the Sandy Hook victims and using that as a catalyst for all manner of new gun control laws.
