Jarrett is just continuing to push the gun control narrative. Nothing new there. But she's far from being an idiot. She and her extended family have deep ties to Communist groups and Islamic extremist groups.

S*** happens.
So her grandfather made the wrong choice (we know now, with hindsight).
Nobody said that grabbing your gun is guaranteed to make you the winner, and staying unhurt.

Granpa's unfortunate experience is an aberration. An exception to the rule.

But... That's HER family, and her reality.
All those other good guys that shot or chased off robbers successfully in the 1970's...they were not Valerie's grandpa.

This is where training comes in. A lot of this kind of problem can be avoided with proper and continuous training. Self taught may work for 1 in a million people but being able to hit a target at the range is not going to work in the real world against people that will do you harm. You don't ever have time to take aim.

Someone ought to verify that story of hers. These people lie all the time about stuff like that.

Even if it is true that he was killed by burglars, with his own gun, there is no way to know what really happened since he is dead and there were no witnesses.

Could it be he was just wanting to scare the intruders and was not willing to send lead down range? There for allowing aggressors get close.

All too sad that you are quite right.
