  •  They weren't there for material possessions (13+ / 0-)

    the gang was called, "The Ely Park Rats" and they were looking for my father whom previously beat the hell out of a few of them for making vulgar remarks towards my mother as she was getting into her car.  He being a Marine and all, he tried to beat manners into them.  They came back a few days later with bigger numbers.

    The leader tried to tell me that they would just "wait until he came home".  That's the actual moment I pulled up the 357 and told them not to take another step.

    If we didn't have those weapons and trained to use them, they could have beaten and killed us both while waiting to ambush my father and mother when they returned home from grocery shopping.  Who's to say they wouldn't have beaten my father and then did the vulgar things they threatened against my mother, in front of him?

    A very evil ending averted.
