NBC's call to treat home invaders 'like royalty' even worse than first appears

And since "treat them like royalty" clearly means to Zeins and NBC that the home invaders should be given everything they want, one could easily be forgiven for coming to the conclusion that they believe that "royalty" should be treated as superiors. From that, one cannot help but wonder if they would prefer that we still were under British monarchic rule. [More]

That's today's St. Louis Gun Rights Examiner. Please give it a look, and tell a friend--and Facebook "likes" and "shares" are hugely appreciated.

"Give 'em what they want" and "treat them like royalty" might work if all they want is your wallet, but what if it's a rapist who is HIV-positive? Or a gang of "knockout game" thugs who want to beat you to death for sport? Do you give them what they want?

This is not just idle speculation. For one example, there was a home invasion in Madison, Wisconsin, in March. The victims told the intruders to take whatever they wanted. The thugs raped the woman (who was six months pregnant) and beat up her husband (who was blind).

And the whole "wasp spray is more effective than Mace or OC" meme is an urban myth. There is no testing or documentation to support it. Tear gas, stun guns, and even firearms sometimes fail to stop assailants (especially those who are high on drugs). It would be just plain stupid to rely on an insecticide that is not even intended to be used on humans. In a lot of cases, bug spray would be more likely to enrage a criminal than to disable him.

The idea that bug spray has a longer range than Mace or pepper spray is also a myth. A lot of OC sprays have an effective range of over 20 feet.

Further, bug sprays are intended for use on insects, not people, and their labels warn that it is against federal law to use them for anything other than their intended purpose. So, you could actually be prosecuted and sent to federal prison for using the spray "in a manner inconsistent with its labeling."

That may seem far-fetched, but this is a country where innocent people (both private citizens and police officers) get railroaded to prison for defending themselves against violent criminals. Honest people have fewer rights than the thugs.
