    Great argument! I'll be sure to use it the next time I'm in a discussion about the convenience of allowing just any dope to carry a gun around.

    When you allow just... anybody... to carry guns around, you give them milliseconds to decide that they want to be judge, jury and executioner.

    Appeared that this "dope" knew exactly what he was doing.

    I have no idea what you are talking about and I suspect you don't either.

    You left out deciding if they want to be victims.

    Yet it just doesn't happen that way very often. Most cases, the CCW permit holders efficiently dispatch the robber. Haven't read of many firefights involving a CCW permit holder vs. a robber (and I'm sure the anti-gun folks would publicize such events).

    I don't like the vocabulary used in the title of the article (you used the vocabulary correctly in your comments). A robber was shot, not a thief. Robbery is a violent crime. Theft is not.

    It wasn't petty theft, it was armed robbery. Armed robbery is a violent crime. Petty theft isn't.

    Untouched, the perp decides who he's gonna execute. What's your point ?

    LOL have you been to a gun range lately to see the skills levels of most shooters even while under zero pressure!!!!!!!

    Hell once more cops many many times end up shooting each other.
