Probably saved a lot of lives. Thats exactly the sort of incident where the goblin comes in gets what they want then shoots everyone.

Good thing is as Good Morning America came on this AM as I was headed out the door, the reported it in a positive light :eek:

Always a win when the media actually shows something good happening due to a law abiding citizen stepping up and protecting others.

Here in St.Louis they have a game called the knock-out game where a mob of people jump a person walking by and try to knock them out...It's been on the news for over two years and I'm just waiting for a person to shoot-back at these stupid-ass's ...They talked to one person on the sidewalk and asked the guy what he'd do if jumped and he said that's why I have a gun-permit...I said to the T.V. screen...H#ll-Yes...That's what I was waiting two years to hear....

I posted this on the other thread too. I am wondering if I am the only one that noticed the bad guys were running away as he was shooting at them. One went down on the floor. They had their back to him as he was shooting. He even shot out the window at them as they were fleeing. Dont get me wrong. They had it coming for sure. But I am suprised he didnt get charged with anything.

Funny this is one reason I have my CCW now also, I am in St. Louise a few times a month mostly going to Cabelas at the mills then down town to shop and eat. Then here in my town we have a lot of walking dead "meth heads" and you never know what they will do.

About the 71 year old hero I can't say much more the wow..... WOW
