I'm guessing this is a rhetorical question, right?

Such stories do not serve the purpose of the press which is to indoctrinate, not inform. As a former Sacramento resident, I can tell you that the Sacramento Bee is an extremely liberal paper. I'm sure they reported this story only reluctantly.

The Greenhaven area where the incident took place has become overrun with Asian gangs. I'm sure there is much more to this story.

it shows what happens when guns are in the hands of citizens. the liberals want citizens disarmed so their constituants can murder rape and rob at will.

I have to agree with you and the SPD are not much good either.

I could tell you, but you and I both know the answer. Thanks for sharing the piece though. It is always nice to see someone use a gun to save lives.

Or, because you are in NY, the story is from CA, and it happened a week ago.

Why do you feel it necessary to list your guns?
