Here is a little test that will help you decide. You're walking down a deserted street with your wife and two small children. Suddenly, an Islamic Terrorist with a huge knife Comes around the corner, Locks eyes with you, Screams obscenities, praises Allah, raises the knife, and charges at you... You are carrying a Springfield XD cal. 45 ACP, and you are an expert shot. You have mere seconds before he reaches you and your family. What do you do? Democrat's Answer: ∑ Well, that's not enough information to answer the question! ∑ Does the man look poor or oppressed? ∑ Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire him to attack? ∑ Could we run away? ∑ What does my wife think? ∑ What about the kids? ∑ Could I possibly swing the gun like a club and knock the knife out of his hand? ∑ What does the law say about this situation? ∑ Does the pistol have appropriate safety built into it? ∑ Why am I carrying a loaded gun anyway, and what kind of message does this send to society and to my children? ∑ Is it possible he'd be happy with just killing me? ∑ Does he definitely want to kill me, or would he be content just to wound me? ∑ If I were to grab his knees and hold on, could my family get away while he was stabbing me? ∑ Should I call 9-1-1? ∑ Why is this street so deserted? ∑ We need to raise taxes, have paint & weed day. ∑ Can we make this a happier, healthier street that would discourage such behavior? ∑ I need to debate this with some friends for a few days and try to come to a consensus. ∑ This is all so confusing!
