Man with a Gun

Kim Du Toit is an excellent writer, regardless of what you think of his politics. I don't just mean his everyday posts. His essays are also worth a gander. Today's post (one of the many) had a statement that got me.
I like violence, in the latter instance. As Col. Jeff Cooper says: "One bleeding-heart type asked me in a recent interview if I did not agree that 'violence begets violence.' I told him that it is my earnest endeavor to see that it does. I would like very much to ensure — and in some cases I have — that any man who offers violence to his fellow citizen begets a whole lot more in return than he can enjoy." ("Cooper vs. Terrorism", Guns & Ammo Annual, 1975)
Kim receives hate-mail and vicious comments because of his stand on our rights to bear arms in the USA - and he wasn't born here! He was one of the best immigrants we ever welcomed on our shores, and everytime I read his site, I'm glad he's one of us.
