CCW Holder Kill's Armed Robber

"Police said a man wearing a ski mask walked into the store at Biscayne Boulevard and 54th Street and demanded money from a clerk. A customer, who has a concealed weapons permit, pulled a gun, said Officer Jeff Giordano, a Miami police spokesman. The customer and robber exchanged fire. The robber was shot dead at the scene."

I wonder just how many lives this man may have just saved?

Is it Just Me, Or Has Anyone Else Noticed a Trend?

It is always a tragedy when a human life is lost regardless of how it happens. It is even more tragic when the end comes in an outburst of violence.

Usually after reading something like this you can just about guarantee something about how we need more gun control in order to make our streets safe and protect our children. Well, sorry to disappoint, but this post will not go that way. What I have noticed recently, and would like to find out if anyone else has noticed? Is if it is just me or are there more shootings going on now? Or is the media focusing more on the shootings that are taking place to help strengthen Obama's agenda on promoting the gun ban?

I am sure sociologist could attribute some of the violence to the state of the economy. But how much more coverage are these shootings getting national attention in the media now than they were just several months ago? If the media is bringing attention to these things now that there is an anti-gunner in the White House then you can add another unethical notch to their belt.

For me I am sort of enjoying watching a lot of these huge "liberal" newspapers fall, I just hope congress doesn't decide to use my money to try and stabilize them, but I am sure they will there is already talk about a "newspaper bailout".

I guess that is about enough ranting for today.

Quote for the Day

"To ban guns because criminals use them is to tell the innocent and law-abiding that their rights and liberties depend not on their own conduct, but on the conduct of the guilty and the lawless, and that the law will permit them to have only such rights and liberties as the lawless will allow... For society does not control crime, ever, by forcing the law-abiding to accommodate themselves to the expected behavior of criminals. Society controls crime by forcing the criminals to accommodate themselves to the expected behavior of the law-abiding." -- Jeff Snyder
