And I thought Denver was a peaceful bastion of love and liberalism??

So.......

This raises a good Q....

If someone is about to take a swing at you with a bat, would you shoot them?? Or would you rather take the chance of (hopefully) waking up in the ER with a big KNOT on your head and not have to kill the poor, misguided soul?? I know what I'd do.

You would think a gang walking around with baseball bats would be pretty obvious.

Personally, I'd start with the gang of men walking around downtown Denver with baseball bats, but that's just me.

Wonder if you need a permit to carry a baseball bat concealed?

It's probably against the law many places.

In a heartbeat.

I am under no obligation to test the fatality of that action.

Not even a question. You don't owe an assailant a shot at brain damage concusion or broken bones and the chance you will not be injured so they can steal from you. Fatal lead poisoning is indicated for the assailant. The choice to take that risk is theirs the instant they grab the bat and decide to use it in that manner.

Colorado does have some liberal "Make my day" laws. Someone enters your home and you feel threatened, you holler, "Make my day" and blast away!

A conservative is created when a liberal is hit in the head at 2AM exiting a fine restaurant by hoodlums.
