All I want to say is, "The average response time for 911 is 15 minutes.
The average response time for 1911 is one second"!

Obama says that guns don't keep us safe. OK ... Let's disarm the Capital Police and the Secret Service.

I'm aware that Mark is running for Congress. Based on your article, just exactly what did he do to "Aid the grandmother and grandson"? You should be ashamed for running a headline designed to prop up a candidate and then have nothing in the body of the article to confirm it!

[removed] Did guns keep these family members safe? It's a rhetorical question [removed]
Not only did they not help this situation, the free flow of guns in our society made these people far less safe, since the assailants had at least one gun if the story is accurate.
So what is your thinking exactly Irving - that if grandma had a gun stashed away in a lockbox, that the kindly robbers would have waited for her to find it? Or are you so bereft of gray matter that you are suggesting she should have had it within easy reach, fully loaded - where the kids could have played with it?
Please explain the mental process that goes on for you to make a comment like this.

That Mark has one heck of a PR manager. He should be proud of his duty bound Danville Express staff.

Derek; [removed] it's quite difficult to respond. [removed] The point was that the police are usually several minutes away and people should be prepared to be their own first responders. [removed] By the way, there are many countries that have very strict gun laws in which law abiding people have no access. [removed] Irv
