How about you let us protect ourselves!

Dave Killion — October 27, 2011

Here’s a letter to the Victoria News

You report that local law enforcement is more and more fretful at the number of illegal handguns on the city’s streets (Handgun seizure a worrisome trend, Oct 26). Well, just imagine how the rest of us feel! After all, armed officers are not likely to be raped. They are not expected to submit to muggings. They are not required to remain passive victims during a home invasion. It is we, law-abiding citizens who have been stripped of the right to bear a firearm for self-defense, that should be worried at this tacit confession by the authorities that they are unable to keep weapons out of the hands of criminals.
