"The only problem was I run out of bullets"

Texas, natch.

Two men obviously thought James Pickett, 80, was an easy target when they showed up at his home on Saturday with a knife."

He just came through that door, stabbing and beating," said Pickett.

Captain Clint Pullin said it looked as though the men wanted to kill him.

But before you worry too much about Pickett, learn a bit more about him.

He's a WWII veteran, former firefighter and lifelong John Wayne devotee.

In short, even at 80, he is someone you just don't mess with.

What the men didn't know is Picket had taken a pistol and put it in his pocket before opening the door.

How easy would it have been for Picket to protect himself under a Barry or Hillary! administration?
