There are many different stories around the blogosphere today highlighting this phenomena:
Just a few days ago, a friend of mine who lives in Philly, and is licensed to carry, got threatened by three youths with a Taser. Believing there was no way this was going to end well, he drew his pistol, muzzle pointed toward the sidewalk. The miscreants decided that Glock beat Taser and beat a hasty retreat. No one was hurt. My friend called 911, but the police never showed up to take a report. Keep in mind this city has had a rash of people getting beaten up in random acts of violence. Yet the Brady’s want to continually deny that there are real law abiding gun owners who have a legitimate concern about personal protection, and who aren’t dangerous or irresponsible with firearms.
