"Woman stops gator attack with a small Beretta pistol."This is a story of self-control and marksmanship by a brave,cool-headed woman with a small pistol against a fiercepredator. What is the smallest caliber that you would trustto protect yourself?A Beretta Jetfire testimonial.Here is her story:While out walking along the edge of a bayou just below Houma,Louisiana, with my soon to be ex-husband,discussing propertysettlement and other divorce issues, we were surprised by ahuge 12-ft. alligator suddenly emerging from the murky waterand charging us with its large jaws wide open.She must have been protecting her nest because she wasextremely aggressive. If I had not had my little Beretta Jetfire.25 caliber pistol with me I would not be here today!Just one shot to my estranged husband's knee cap was all it took.The gator got him easily and I was able to escape by just walkingaway at a brisk pace. It's one of the best pistols in my collection!Plus ... the amount I saved in lawyer's fees was morethan worth the purchase price of the gun.

About the time Eric Holder was addressing the NAACP
in Houston, three young black men were holding up
jewelry stores in San Francisco and Santa Rosa;
killing two young Asian girls and getting into a shoot
out with police. The names of the criminals are at
the bottom of this post.
In San Francisco, the brother, center, with mother and
father of the two Asian girls, Khin Min and Lina Lim,
who were shot and stabbed by the man below,
Mr. Barry White.
An Excerpt from "Facing Facts About Race"
column by Victor Davis Hanson, 23 July 2013:
"The world will long remember Trayvon Martin, but few people — and certainly not Barack Obama or Eric Holder, who have a bad habit, in an increasingly multiracial country, of claiming solidarity on the basis of race — will care that Khin Min and Lina Lim were torn to pieces by bullets and a knife.
Few will care that they died in a vicious assault that had nothing to do with stereotyping, Stand Your Ground self-defense, weak gun laws, insufficient federal civil-rights legislation, or any of the other causes of interracial violence falsely advanced by the attorney general — but quite a lot to do with an urban culture that for unspoken reasons has spawned an epidemic of disproportionate violent crime on the part of young African-American males.
I offer one final surreal footnote to this strange juxtaposition of reading the real news while listening to the mytho-history that a Eric Holder constructed from the death of Trayvon Martin to indict both the police and the public.
What were the names of two of the men suspected of being the ones who last week shot it out with the Santa Rosa jeweler as Eric Holder demagogued the Trayvon Martin shooting?
Traveon Banks-Austin and Alexander Tyvon Brandon.
And so the tragedy continues."
