  1. When I grew up (I'm in my 50's) we had a rifle and a shotgun leaning in the corner of the laundry room, and a 22 pistol on top of a kitchen cabinet. We knew never to touch those weapons except with permission, or in an emergency. We'd been trained from diapers in proper use & handling of firearms. Six kids. Zero "accidents." Twice to my knowledge a person came to our door trying to open it. Once with me, once with my sister. In both cases, clack-clack of the 12 gauge ended that. No shots fired. It is a shame this young man didn't have a rifle, shotgun or pistol.

    It is doubly a shame that we act all morally conflicted about executing repeat violent offenders. 20 times… no excuse for this piece of shit to be walking on any street anywhere.
