Two disturbing stories.

The first here on my native Long Island. A group of 20 gang members surrounded a man’s house in Uniondale, NY. They verbally threatened him and his family. He got his legally owned AK-47 and asked them to leave his property. They dared him saying he wouldn’t use the gun.

He put a few rounds into his lawn.

For this he was arrested.

“He starts threatening my family, my life. ‘Oh you’re dead. I’m gonna kill your family and your babies. You’re dead.’ So when he says that, 20 others guys come rushing around the corner. And so I fired four warning shots into the grass,” Grier said.

Grier was later arrested. John Lewis is Grier’s attorney.

“What he’s initially charged with – A D felony reckless endangerment — requires a depraved indifference to human life, creating a risk that someone’s going to die. Shooting into a lawn doesn’t create a risk of anybody dying,” Lewis said.

The man defended his home and his family and nobody got hurt. I guess he is a monster?!?

Perhaps even more worrisome is that soon people like Mr. Grier won’t even be able to obtain a weapon to defend their families. The Senate is, well…
