    other because I don't think anyone should have guns. I personally think that the value of life has sunk so low that they should not be an option for defense.  I am not saying that it was always that way, but that is the way it is now, IMO. Anything I say to you will seem extreme. Which is why I normally don't come in these diaries, but I guess I couldn't resist the local news.

    •  I'm not sure I understand what you mean here... (5+ / 0-)

      Because I'm reading it as saying that human life is of so little value that, in any case in which the available options are a violent death ordefending one's life with a firearm, (and, yes, with a significant chance that one's attacker will die) the victim's death is the better outcome.

      That point of view is so morally offensive to me that I don't want to attribute it to anyone, especially not erroneouly.

      Is this really what you're saying?
