Nothing argues for gun rights quite like a man breaking into your house with a baseball bat. In Midland, Texas, a would-be robber attempted to break into a neighbor’s home. Samuel Pompa, 32, was wielding a baseball bat. His would-be victim, 19, had a shotgun.
Pompa lost. He received a shotgun wound to the chest and died at Midland Memorial Hospital. No doubt Piers Morgan and company will cite Pompa as just another sad statistic in the American tradition of gun violence.
