I’ve seen a lot of comments lately about all of us needing assault weapons to protect our homes. These comments made me wonder about it all ... I’m 67 years old, been a cop, been in the Army, lived in a lot of places and yet I have not met one person, other than veterans who have served in combat zones, who has personally shot anyone in self-defense ... at their homes or out in the public. Have you? Maybe all the energy being expended to scare our citizens about nothing would be better used in fund-raising for the indigent or even maybe helping tutor one of the 35 percent of our Payson High School students who is failing a class?
Think about it. Oh, and if I’m mistaken, please feel free to share your personal story about how you saved yourself or a family member by shooting a bad guy 50 times with your AR-15.
