Remember the Cartoon Character Underdog?

From Eagle Rising:


No Innocent is an Underdog When They Have a Gun to Even the Field

Why the sudden nostalgia for a cartoon that turns 50 years old this year?  I came across the theme song the other day and it got me thinking about the world in general.

The lyrics are rather apropos for a gun site such as mine.  As such I made the following video that is amusing but also thought provoking.  The good honest people who rise to the occasion when others cry out for a hero are just regular folk.  Old, young, women, men…the only common denominator among them is that they are ARMED and therefore  ABLE to fight back against those who would rob or plunder.

This is fitting since we post many defense stories here. I particularly liked the one where the store owner put the gun to the robber’s neck. I can hear him now…..

    Well now I have a problem. I posted at Terry’s “Shopping in Texas ?” that it was the best video I had seen I quite some time. And now you give us “Underdog.”

    Kathy, this is priceless. Kudos to you for the find and bringing it to us.

    My favs are watching the bad guys scramble. Pine cones.

    Good find. Underscores the need for FAST thinking. Failure COULD be deadly.
