Imagine that. A democrat with a shot gun in their house! On the heels of the Justice Department illegally restricting gun ownership in five southern states. With Obama preparing an illegal executive order that would further restrict gun ownership by law-abiding American citizens. The irony is not lost on this writer.
Had Senator Boswell not had the shotgun, it is very probable that he, his daughter and his grandson would be dead today because the home invader was armed (betcha it was an illegal gun). A decorated war hero, with skills he no doubt learned in his 20 years in the Army, Senator Boswell instantly attacked the robber who had assaulted his daughter. He, a man well advanced in years, grappled with the much younger armed man. His 22 year old grandson quickly ran to another room and grabbed the shot gun.
Only when the robber saw the shot gun did he make a run for it. Had that legal weapon not been in that house, the news story would probably have involved coffins and a sad day for the nation.
Luckily, Senator Boswell is a pro-gun rights kinda guy. I guess his military service taught him a thing or two about evil men intent on harming you and yours. Sometimes, a man has to fight. With amazing courage- kudos to Senator Boswell- and sometimes, with a gun.
