Why, even in the face of economic hard times…

… the crime rate is decreasing:

Stories like these (This one from Louisiana), are becoming more and more commonplace.

A fireworks stand operator who shot two alleged robbers on Christmas Day isn’t expected to face any charges stemming from the incident, according to a spokesman for the Rapides Parish Sheriff’s Office.

The shooting left one Alexandria man dead, another hospitalized and a third on the run.

Even though they rarely make it into the national news, the alternative media and word of mouth makes sure that the stories do get out. And even though they are still relatively rare, just the thought that a criminal’s victim may shoot back, may kill the criminal, and won’t face any legal consequences as a result is undoubtedly enough to give some of those criminals pause.

And, hopefully, as these stories get out, more law abiding citizens will recognize the need and take the steps necessary to defend themselves and their families, because as long as our legal system continues playing “catch and release” with criminals…

He pleaded guilty in February to possession of a stolen firearm and was given two years probation, according to court records.

…the only recourse is for productive citizens to be prepared, both physically and mentally, to defend against the criminals that our legal system refuses to deal with and to continue to work to remove the legal roadblocks and infringements upon law abiding citizen’s right to keep and bear arms.
