    Saw this on the news yesterday. A man apparently shot and killed a
    womans boyfriend during an argument. I guess he had been verbally and physically abusing this woman in public and people were taking notice. Then the guy made a move (according to the shooter) like he was going to draw a weapon from his waistband and that's when he was shot and killed. The news report also said the shooter had a concealed weapons permit and they didn't think he would be facing any charges. Haven't heard anything else as of yet. Hopefully the dead mans' girlfriend doesn't file a civil suit against the shooter. Not sure if I would have got involved
    in this if i'd been there. What say you?

    In the marvelous town on Lost Wages I see couples fighting on an almost daily basis. If I acted like this guy, I would have killed 100 boyfriends by now. Boyfriend/girlfriend fights get the "none of my business" response from me. However, " when I see a naked man with a h*** on and a knife chasing a woman down a dark alley I don't assume he's out collecting for the red cross" (may have botched the quote)

    if it is verbal and causing a disturbance call the cops and let them sort it out.

    Intervening between a boyfriend and GF having a verbal argument is bad juju.

    A few years ago where I live a guy jumped over the meat counter at a Wal-mart, grabbed a knife and started stabbing his girlfriend repeatedly. A customer carrying a concealed j frame .45 shot him 3 times killing him.

    The guy had a permit, we don't need to know anything else.

    In this situation, I wholeheartedly agree with jumping into a bf/gf fight. Ideally, first shot is fired before first stab wound.
