And for all you people who are saying that the old man has a "right" to point a shotgun at a cop if the cop is in his home, you try doing it and see what happens.
So a man doesn't have the right to defend himself on his own property? Cops, like every one else, are human - and are often used or manipulated for different ends. A cop can be no more tyrannical than a politician. Does that mean all cops are bad? No. There are some very friendly, fun loving, peaceful cops who just want to do their job with no trouble. But let's say a cop has orders to confiscate your weapons and forcefully enters your property - what would you do? Do you believe a man has no right to defend himself on his own land just because the person going after him, albeit crooked, is still a "cop"?
Petty titles mean little when the ones meant to serve you turn against your best interests.
The definition of forcing someone to comply with something extrajudicial or against their will is tyranny.
