Maybe, had the victim had access to a firearm, he would have been able to defend himself with more than just his teeth.

"While burglars retain their liberty, speaking your mind can put you in jail."

"For invading someone’s home, relieving them of their property and leaving them in terror the judicially approved penalty is now a little light litter collection and a pep talk with a probation officer."

"Perhaps one should not be so flippant. There is, after all, a tough side to community sentences. What they mean is that while convicted burglars remain at liberty whole communities are sentenced to live in fear. And if they want to see law-breakers removed from their areas and punished in accordance with traditional justice? Well, that’s tough." ...

"So, why the devil would any American accept any edict by Bush concerning a disease that essentially died out, that is NOT highly contagious, and that is NOT nearly as deadly as the government and its vaccines. Besides, we know that 'voluntary' used by the government means 'mandatory,' if not immediately, then soon after. The frauds of income tax, property tax, and all regulations concerning our autos, trucks, licensing, and travel bear this out as truth."
