CHATTANOOGA COMMON SENSE

I received an interesting email from the TBI Manager this week - he sends some good info - thought you might like this:

Judge says citizens should buy guns
to protect themselves.


General Sessions Court Judge Bob Moon
on Wednesday told a female home
invasion victim she needs to buy a
gun to protect herself.


"There should be a law that law
abiding citizens with no felony
convictions should own a gun,"
the judge said while setting bond
for Colton Dobbins.


Judge Moon told Danielle Walker,
"I know many fine police officers.
But we can't depend on the police
to protect us any more."

He said Chattanooga is the 57th most
dangerous city in the country,
and to many criminals "the value of
human life means nothing to them."


The judge said, "With 7,000 foreclo-
sures every day and 6,000 kids
dropping out of school" that the
crime situation is going to get much
worse.



He told the 18-year-old Dobbins he is
"lucky to be alive" after barging
into the home of Ms. Walke
r.

Judge Moon said, "If it had been my
house you came in on, you would have
wound up at Coulter Fune
ral Home."

Dobbins was charged with forcing h
is
way into Ms. Walker's home where she
and her nine-year-old son live. Ms.
Walker said Dobbins knocked her to
the floor, then two other men entered
her home.


Ms. Walker said, "I was afraid for
my
son."
