How gun control trades life for death

Bob Allen at World Net Daily - time was when when a man could and would defend a defenseless victim against an assailant. With the progressive disarmament of the populace, and the pussification of men, very few are either willing or able any more. They expect the police to do that job, and the police will almost alway be too late. [clairefiles]

Could Charles have saved Clara? It's possible he could not. Perhaps Charles would have also been a victim. We can never be sure.

What we do know is that Charles obeyed a thug -- refused to defend the defenseless -- and two people are now dead.

What would you have done?

What would I have done?

There was a time when a majority of American men would almost surely have come to Clara's aid. They believed in an ethic that said, "Rescue those who are being taken away to death; hold back those who are stumbling to the slaughter." (Proverbs 24:11)

It was a day when men, recognizing the reality of evil, carried weapons that enabled them to stand in the gap for those being unjustly tormented and threatened. Virtually any man on the street could come to the aid of a victim like Clara.

That was then; this is now.
