Fred Reed at - Mr. Reed tells us of "former law-enforcement officer" Karl Barnhardt's recommendations to the Lake Chapala Society. Mr. Barnhardt does not "believe in keeping a loaded firearm in your home for protection for a number of reasons", which he enumerates and on which Mr. Reed comments: [lew]

In Virginia to get a concealed-carry permit, you attend a mandatory class on how to use a pistol. One of the instructors when I did it was a (very competent) female agent of the FBI. She talked to the class, some of whom were women, about rape. She made the obvious point that very few women have the slightest chance of fending off a two-hundred pound deviate perhaps armed with a knife. A small concealed-hammer revolver, fired maybe through a coat pocket, can easily be handled by a woman of ninety pounds. Studies show that a rapist who has been shot several times loses ardor. We're talking way beyond Viagra.

What is true of intruders is that they don't want a firefight. When you rack a round into the chamber of a semi-auto, the sound is unmistakable and means only one thing: Someone is preparing to fire. You have to want a television very badly to go against someone who audibly is planning to kill you and audibly has the means.

You can do as Smith wants -- let them do it, whatever it is, and then call a qualified professional. Or you can shoot the sons of bitches. Your choice. I don't care.

Cops know best?

Fred says this doesn't sound like any cop he has known. Really? Sounds like a typical cop to me.
