Spoke too Soon
Here’s one for you to pass around to those friends disinterested in the right to arms – and especially those opposed to it.
Remember Hale DeMar? The Wilmette, IL resident who shot the home invader and then was charged for having a handgun (illegal in Wilmette) and for letting his FOID expire in 1988? Seems he wrote a letter to the editor of the Chicago Sun-Times. It’s all good, but here’s the money quote:
If my actions have spared only one family from the distress and trauma that this habitual criminal has caused hundreds of others, then I have served my civic duty and taken one evil creature off of our streets, something that our impotent criminal justice system had failed to do, despite some thirty odd arrests, plea bargains and suspended sentences.
Now, back to work.
