Default Re: Shooting in Newtown, Connecticut Elementary School

BTC all of this is true, however there are classes from several of the gun shops here that teach you to take the shot and not stand there shaking like a leaf. I live in a very quiet neighborhood where the houses are in the 135 to 150 K range and in the 25 years I have been here there has been one home invasion of a senior lady. She was targeted by the robber because of her age and put up little fight. I'm sure a gun would not have helped her, but if the invader has been threatened by someone else a little more adept, he would have turned and run. No one wants to shoot anyone but if its me or the bad guy, the bad guy is going to lose.
