Home Protection, MSM Style: Killer Cacti But No Guns
No guns please, we're liberals . . .
As soon as "Good Morning America" began to tease an upcoming how-to segment today on protecting against home invasion, I immediately suspected the show wouldn't discuss one obvious measure: obtaining fireams and learning to use them.
And sure enough . . .
GMA ran the segment in the wake of the horrific home-invasion in Connecticut in which the the wife and two daughters of a prominent doctor were killed and the man badly beaten. An expert was brought in to discuss various measures, and Chris Cuomo added some suggestions of his own. They ranged from keeping shrubbery low, to installing lights, alarms and wind chimes, to putting peepholes in the door, to creating a "safe room" to which a family can flee.
But never did GMA breathe a word about firearms. My favorite moment was Cuomo's Cactus Defense. That's Chris's hand pointing at that lethal little mini-cactus in the window planter. View video here.
GOOD MORNING AMERICA CO-HOST CHRIS CUOMO: Something as simple as cactus. Sounds simple, right? Oh, they wouldn't care about that, right? But they do. They think about these things. Chimes, outside the window.
I don't know, Chris. If your home were being invaded, what would you rather have handy: a spider cactus or a Smith & Wesson?
