Some of the responses in the gun forum at DU are stunning. Apparently many people do not get that a burglar is reasonably presumed to be armed and dangerous, regardless of demographics. You also read a lot of that "didn't have to shoot him, could have run from the house" bullshit. What kind of people are these, who don't understand that a burglar in your home is a dangerous criminal, but also violating a core principle of civilization? These people go on and on about imaginary human rights granted to them by some bunch of harpists in Denmark, but completely ignore their right to have private property and defend it in the US Constitution.

I did not go to school with these people. I do not live with these people. I strongly suspect that even when I lived in San Francisco, we considered these people to be highly suspect of being on prescription medication.

PS- has anyone noticed that Rachel Maddow seems to be coming down to earth on some issues?

This is one of your best posts, although I can't comment on Maddow, as I try to avoid MSDNC.
