A couple of weeks later, around the same time of night, two young men knocked on my door, and it was the same story: Their car wouldn’t start, and they wanted to come in and use my phone. When I told them to leave they started getting aggressive and argumentative. When I realized they were going to come in anyway, I showed them my handgun and sent them on their way. A very short time later, these same kids cut the throats of two Dartmouth professors who had allowed them into their home. These kids decided they wanted to go to Australia, and they were going to kill and rob anyone they could get their hands on to get there. When they were caught and debriefed by the cops, it turned out someone else in town had run them off with a weapon as well.
