The Second Amendment guarantees your right to own a handgun and to keep it handy. It is a right that should be vigilantly guarded. People have died protecting this right. One would be 8-year-old Christopher Scurry Jr. of Port Orange, Florida:
Port Orange police say Christopher Scurry Jr. and his 12-year-old brother were in their home Friday with their 80-year-old great grandfather when it appears Christopher shot himself with a 9 mm handgun. His brother performed CPR, but Christopher died at the hospital an hour later, CBS affiliate WKMG reported.
When you make the decision to purchase a handgun for home protection, please pause a moment and lend a kind thought for young Christopher and the sacrifice he made for your safety.
