How Should a 73-year-old Defend Himself from a 41-year-old?

If not with the use of a firearm, that is. Retired Urbandale police officer shot man in self defense, Polk County Attorney says

A subsequent investigation revealed that Dwight Taylor, 73, had shot Lamp in self defense. Taylor and Lamp, who were acquaintances, had been drinking when a fight broke out. Police said that Lamp assaulted Taylor and grabbed him by the throat. Lamp then refused to leave when asked to do so, and during a second struggle Taylor shot Lamp.

They make much of the fact that he was a retired cop. But any 73-year-old could find himself in the same situation.

Both men were injured in the fight and taken to a local hospital.

Self-defense is a human-right.
