A LOOK AT THE RIGHT TO SELF-DEFENSE, and various attacks thereon:

Needless to say, the "gunfights after every traffic accident" which were predicted by the gun control advocates have not transpired in any state adopting such "no retreat" measures.

But make no mistake, they continue to fight such legislation. Their latest tactic? Identifying the death of any armed home invader or rapist at the hands of his intended victim as a "murder," they have launched a Web site opposed to these new self-defense laws, dubbed www.licensetomurder.com. . . .

At the risk of belaboring the obvious, these are lies. Shooting in self-defense is not "murder."

No, it's not. (Via Dave Hardy).
