That was exactly what armed self defense is all about.It's a good thing Capt. Kirk decieded to work in the U. S. instead of his native Canada( or Banada as I call it). Up here his character would have no chance to defend himself as self defense is frowned upon up here.

As I've written before the charges faced by an individual up here for defending himself in such a manner would be ten times worse than what the armed robber would face. Only in Banada

Very true Eric. In fact, you can't even carry a concealed weapon in Canada. He would have had to have an authorized "trip permit" to even move a handgun around from his home to some specific place for an specific event, such as a shooting match at a gun range. Even then it would have had to be unloaded & cased away, so he would have had to say: "please excuse me a moment while I go uncase & load my handgun so that I can shoot you before you shoot me"

That clip is priceless. There's another, slightly older episode of Boston Legal where a disgruntled ex-con comes in to the office with a pistol, intent on killing one of the lawyers who put him away in the first place. The Shatner character removes a "survival" type .22 rifle from under his desk and uses it to plug the thug in the shoulder just before said baddy tries to shoot the fellow lawyer. Good stuff.

Yeah I saw that episode too - good stuff. :)

It's funny, I watched it again and then realized that comment Shatner said about trying to elect an African- American for President. If Obama is elected ,and this episode was to have aired in the new year it would have to be reshot. Capt. Kirk would still have shot the guy, but new dialogue would have to be written to reflect that in the new United States of Obamamerica, only a big shot elite like Denny would be allowed a handgun for self defense.

On a side note, we did re-elect a Conservative govt. up here ( although only a minority...this time )so our prayers are with you and we are rootin' for the Republicans.

The clip has expired they say. At 1:16 EST I went to the video and the message said it has expired. Is this the norm or did they make it expire because of it's nature?
