Today's meme was inspired by a recent news report in which avowed anti-gun advocate, former Michigan House Rep., and former Detroit mayoral candidate Lisa Howze was the victim of a home-invasion at her residence.
When the five men allegedly broke into her home, she hid under a bed in an upstairs bedroom and called the
police. She dropped her name during the 911 call hoping that it would speed up police response time. The first unit got there in 20 minutes. The response time for any other citizen may not be as fast - your mileage may vary.
In all, I find this matter ironic as Ms. Howze is reportedly now contemplating a Michigan Concealed Pistol License. In the aforementioned article she was quoted as saying the following,
"The officer told me 'it's time to get my CPL license. "I had resisted for a long time, saying, no I'm not getting a gun, I'm not getting a gun. Now I'm not resisting."
Nothing like a home-invasion to give you clarity on gun ownership and the Second Amendment.
