    82-year-old Jim Brazel and his wife were asleep at home in Linn County, Ore. when they were awakened by suspicious noises coming from Brazel’s workshop. After retrieving a .410 shotgun, Brazel went to investigate and discovered a burglar. Brazel said to the man, “You take one more step and this gun goes off in the middle of your chest. Do what you want.” The criminal chose to stay put until police could arrive, 20 minutes later.
    Following the incident, Brazel spoke of the burglar to local media, stating, “He’s making a mistake to try country people… Because 99 percent of us are all the same. We’re not afraid to shoot.” (NWCN, Portland, Ore. 03/28/13)

    "...20 minutes later." Without his gun, again, the police would have only had a report to write.

    Gun control is NOT about guns, it's about CONTROL.

  4. 20 minutes is a long time in that situation.
