    This sorta stuff keeps up, the world will be a better place. Might be a few less Obama supporters, but that's a risk we'll have to take. :thumbsup:

    "He was currently out on parole for an armed robbery conviction."

    Textbook indeed. The legal system lets a convicted felon on the street, and it's up to the citizens to protect themselves.

    Awesome! Those are the kinds of headlines we need to change the view in America of armed citizens!

    Yeah, but its a semi-automatic magazine not a automatic clip, and to bad he missed the other piece of trash.

    But he was just about to turn his life around, right after he stole enough money to pay for his rehab.

    Good on him. I often wondered how I would handle something like that sitting in a barbers chair getting my monthly haircut...

    Detroit? So, how long until the patron goes to jail and gets ruined by the civil suit?

    Never. In Michigan we have a "stand your ground" law and civil immunity for self defense if it is justified.

    Talk about the perfect cover! He was able to pull his weapon under the cover of his smock.

    I wonder if he fired through his smock or moved it aside? I would have shot right threw it, so they never saw it coming.

    Don't be to hard on the reporter in this story.
    I've met him a few times through the years and he's not one of the typical anti-gunner reporters.

    Could this be life imitating art?
    This is right out of the Clint Eastwood movie "High Plains Drifter".

    The B/G's sure were in the wrong place at the wrong time.
    I hope they get the "survivor" before has time to re-group.
