Dear Legislator: Could you please help me decide which of my kids lives to save?

    "Last night yet another of my kids found himself on the goodbye end of a robber's gun as the robber slowly counted down

    "5 . . . 4 . . . 3 . . . 2 . . . "

    I know you politicians told us "if it saves one life, then keeping guns away from law-abiding citizens is the right thing to do!" but I'm having a little trouble figuring out which life is the one to be saved. I've had most of these kids for 20 years or more, and I'm rather fond of them all.

    My kid last night? It was his third time facing armed robbers in Chicago, in Illinois. Can you tell me how many times is just right and how many times is too many?"

    Good read.

    When I loose the right to legally carry, to protect myself and those I care for, I will voluntarily become a criminal. Somtimes the cuase out weighs the consequences.
