Several good points in this.
To illustrate one of them… ever heard of Alfred and Sylvia Armen? Didn’t think so. They are an elderly couple that owns a music store in PA. While working at their store a criminal entered the store with a club, hit the 72-year-old Sylvia in the head with it, forcing the 73-year-old Alfred to act. He used his .38 caliber revolver to shoot and kill the attacker, likely saving their lives.
Or how about this guy that used an AR-15 to defend himself and his girlfriend from an intruder?
That’s just two incidents that happened in Pennsylvania in the last seven days of April.
