John Longenecker at LA Gun Rights Examiner - a pretty good response to the contention that people should be required to beg for permission to defend their lives.

The best analogy to owning a gun and keeping it ready and most handy is the fire extinguisher. It is not acquired in paranoia, but intelligent preparedness. It is not a "Don't do anything until we get there!" paradigm. It is not brought to bear in anger, but in purpose, and no one needs to show anyone else cause to own several throughout the house and one in the car. It's so obvious, one has to be insane not to see the identity of values between the fire extinguisher and a battery-ready gun within easy reach. Both can keep a situation from getting out of control, both prevent irrevocable loss, and both are well within public policy and interest.
