Thank Heavens No One Had a Gun!

Someone could have been hurt.

As they got closer, the couple saw the man brutally beating the toddler behind his truck and throwing the child on the ground, according to Singh. Two or three other cars stopped, an unusual number to be passing through the remote area surrounded by a dairy, a cow pasture, a cornfield and a farmhouse, he said.

"What we got from witnesses is he was punching, slapping, kicking, stomping, shaking," Singh said. "They tried to intervene and get involved, but their efforts really didn't have an effect. The suspect was engaged in what he was doing. He just pushed them off and went back to it."

Had this sub-animal sack of hate-infested protoplasm shot the kid, instead of brutally mauling him to death, it would have been one more notch in the bedpost of the "Save the Children - Ban the Gun" Brigade. But, the very notion that this child might have been saved had an armed citizen intervened, is just plain crazy talk to them.

They'll ask you, "Why do you need to carry a gun?" And if you reply, "Becuase I have no way of knowing when I might be called upon to protect my family and my community.", they'll call you a fearful, paranoid nutjob.

With a teeny-weeny pee-pee.

It's what they call "reality-based debate".
