Guns provide remedial action

Cartoonist Milt Priggee should recall that on this past Christmas our nation was saved from a 300-plus life tragedy by a regular citizen that took remedial action. Law enforcement didn’t, or couldn’t, do the job.

This nation needs heros that are prepared to respond. Why not keep criminals guessing as to which home is ready or which citizen is ready to avert chaos? Guns are not nice, but sadly, very necessary.
