    CCRKBA says Mississippi case underscores value of guns in the home

    Yesterday’s fatal shooting of a dangerous escaped criminal suspect by a man and wife he had taken hostage in their own home in Mississippi illustrates the value of having a gun for protection, according to a the head of a national gun rights group who coincidentally co-authored a book about armed self-defense.

    We need better and more current data on Defensive Gun Usage that doesn't result in anyone getting shot. It's at least 20X greater than all these gory stories combined.

    I will not celebrate the violent death of that escapee, career criminal or not. I'm only glad that the would-be victims survived intact. That's all we can hope for in a DGU: if the attacker cannot be deterred, then I'm not the one who chose deadly force - my only choice was who was going down.

    Good article. If Alan would get a baseball hat and you would sport a bow tie, you could be brothers. ;-)
