Re: Mises on the "only cops should have guns" argument...

Two shots were fired by the response team.

The first man who was shot got one round off and into a wall.

The second round from another member (his one shot) of the response team stopped the assailant.

If they're over your property, they're invading your privacy. You have every right to bring them down. There is shotgun ammunition designed for the purpose.

I'm guessing that in this case, bringing one down would almost instantly identify the owner/operator.
