Deterrence

Tuesday night President Obama gave a speech to the nation.  He made the point that a credible threat of a response of force was necessary to keep bad guys in check.

Americans generally agree with that point.  It is important for the USA to be able to respond with lethal force when necessary.

It is just as important for an individual American to be able to respond with lethal force when necessary.

Note this little tidbit from the NYT story on the recall:
A few feet away stood Steven Martin, 53, a recall supporter with a Beretta handgun holstered on his hip.

“It’s a deterrent,” he said. “I love my country.”
Yes it is and, yes we do.
