Glad to see our veterans are using their AR's for legitimate self-defense purposes. I suppose that doesn't sit well with our politically-minded betters. If they don't like AR's then in our free country it's their choice not to buy one. Best of all, the mere sight of an AR-15 caused the two miscreants to cease and disist.

Good Americans with firearms make our country a better, safer place to live.

Too bad there is no newsvideo about it. I was looking for a video about the story, but I cannot find any. :(

Good on the man.

Good for him, and good for Fox. Don't hold yer breath until it's in the NBC or CBS news, though.

NBC will paint him as a racist with post-traumatic stress syndrome and show baby photos of the two alleged robbers.

Yeah, I'm still a little bitter over Zimmerman.
