I'm not saying he wasn't within his rights to be armed on his own property, but the police don't take "no" for an answer. If you don't kill them, they kill you. For the time being, it's still better to settle who was right and who was wrong in the courts.
In the words of the police officer who taught me how to shoot, "They're only a few IQ points higher than the people they're chasing."
That is certainly my take away as a father and breadwinner. I am worth much more alive than dead to them!

Hmm....anyone wanna buy a BUNCH of really cool and hard earned weaponry? Not sure why I would tie up that capital when it can be devoted to more effective defenses like bullet proof glass, a moat, my own drone....:roll eyes:!
