Self-defence


There's sad news out of England today (linked to by everyone, including Owen, who also has a nice cartoon of it):
Government lawyers trying to keep the Norfolk farmer Tony Martin behind bars will tell a High Court judge tomorrow that burglars are members of the public who must be protected from violent householders.

My priest, who, like any good Texan priest, packs heat, is taking me to learn how to shoot a handgun this summer, and urges me to get a concealed-carry license. Ah, what a different world it is, where the person breaking into my home would not be at fault, but rather I, if I even threatened him with shooting him. That's insane.
