    None of that happen. What if-ing it doesn't work, ever. The fact of the matter is the defender was wise to take the advantage when he had it because no one knew what the thugs were going to do.



    If a thug has a drawn weapon and is in the process of committing a crime unless you depend on someone else to defend you you are going to be at the mercy of what the gun holder(s) plan to do. They are not logical, thinking people. Why would you want to place your life in their good graces? How do you know a man holding a gun on you has any good graces?
    Not to mention, I am sure the thug was well practiced in Firearm safety, so everyone should have been fine.

    Update on all this:

    Florida man who shot suspects during Internet cafe robbery will not face charges

    Duwayne Henderson and Davis Dawkins, both 19, were later arrested and face attempted armed robbery with a firearm and criminal mischief charges. They were transported to Shands at the University of Florida in Gainesville.

    Dawkins had a superficial wound in his left arm, but Henderson was shot in two places: his left buttock and his right hip.

    Both posted bail and were released.
    Ha! Shot in the ass. Can't believe they are out on bail though.

    Apparently you can.

    Stories like this demonstrate that the media has a anti-2nd amendment slat to them. Because every time some pathetic ass loser shoots up a place the media is all over that like a fat man at a all you can eat Chinese buffet and suggesting that we need more anti-2nd amendment laws.But anytime some hero uses a firearm to save the life of others, the media only gives the story a token mention and there is no one in their stories saying we need to quit infringing on the 2nd amendment.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    This. Old people are the ones to watch for, because they're the ones who came from the old country, fought in the wars, and grew up a hard life where there were no scruples about killing a thief.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    Those thugs are so lucky that geezer didn't take the time to aim and shot from the hip many times.

    Shooting from the hip s for dumb noobs trying to look all "gangsta", like holding the pistol sideways. Do people even do that stupid **** in real life? Firearms have sights for a reason.

    Now, if he genuinely believed it was likely they were going to shoot people that is a different story. I wasnít there so I donít know what the ďvibeĒ was. I am not saying he was necessarily wrong. I just donít want people to think that just because one is armed, that drawing on thieves is always the right choice.
    You have 2 choices. Take control or be controlled. When your life is the wager why let thugs dictate the terms?

    Yes gangsters really do hold guns sideways. Some do it for flair. Some do it because they have a cheap piece and don't want it to jam.

    I watched all the Sunday morning news shows this weekend, it was an orgy of the typical leftist platitudes supporting gun control. Many times the question was asked, 'how do we respond to and prevent incidents like the theater shooting'? Nobody--not even gun rights defenders on these shows--answered, "arm yourself".
