NAT’L – GUN CRIME – Are You Preparing For Threats Or Indulging In Murder Fantasies? (VIDEO)

Some people realistically prepare for threats they may face, and some people indulge themselves in violent fantasies, often instances where they could kill or shoot a person and not face legal consequences. Start reading the comments in a few gun groups or around news reports, and you’ll see it in action.

A couple of relatively recent and high-profile court cases illustrate people who brought their murder fantasies to life…and unsuccessfully tried to frame them as self-defense.

Smith had suffered a few burglaries and suspected that Kifer and Brady were the culprits upon seeing them. Smith went to his home, turned off the lights, and concealed himself in his basement but left the door to the basement open, and armed himself with a Ruger Mini-14 and a .22 pistol. [full article]
