When two men tried to hold up a Dollar General store on the Northside on Monday night, a customer pulled his gun and shot one of the men twice.
Of course, the “he was a good person” apologists are blathering in the comments section…
I Knew This Man Personally He Would Never Harm Anyone Yes He Was Robbing The Store But He Was A Good Person
Just robbing the store, like most of the good people I know would do.
This is unpossible. NY has policies in place that should prevent this type of thing from happening… right? Perhaps Bloomberg will call for handguns to be utra-super illegal, only then will NY residents be safe.
Johnson bought the .45-caliber gun used in the shooting in 1991 in Florida, two law enforcement souces told NBC News. He was not licensed to carry arms in New York, they said.
Chicago is known for its incredibly restrictive firearms laws. Why didn’t the victims simply hold up a copy of the city statutes in defense of their lives? Surely the shooters would have realized that they were in a “gun-free” zone and been on their merry way to conduct their crime somewhere guns are allowed. Right?
Nineteen people were shot across the South and West sides from Thursday evening through early Friday morning — 13 of them wounded over a 30-minute period, authorities say.
Great news! Big thanks to all, and I know a lot of out-of-staters took action as well, who let their opinions of that travesty be known, forcing it out… for now. Remain vigilant, I don’t trust that rat, Yee, at all. GOTS recommends NOT firing weapons in the air to celebrate.
NSSF just learned that in response to overwhelming grassroots opposition from law-abiding gun owners and California’s firearms industry members, SB 249 has been pulled from the Assembly Appropriations Committee hearing calendar for Thursday, Aug. 16. This means that the bill is dead for the year! Congratulations to everyone who responded to our legislative alerts and radio ad and called their California state legislators to oppose SB 249, which would have resulted in the unconstitutional confiscation of lawfully purchased rifles that are fully complaint with California’s draconian firearms laws. Without your efforts, this victory would not have been possible.
This is very, very bad. The most aggressive attack on the 2nd amendment since the 2000 CA assault weapons ban. There is no logic, there is no reason, there is only fear on the part of Sen Yee and his cohorts. The only thing this will accomplish is creating an entire class of criminals where there were only those striving to adhere to the law. The grimly humorous fallout will be that nobody will need a bullet button, there would be no point- might as well have reloading functionality if it is just as illegal as any normal weapon. I lack the vocabulary to express my disgust and disdain for the fools behind this attack on the Constitution. These are the same clowns who want to allow the criminal element from Mexico safe harbor in our state… where is the “sanctuary city” for firearms owners? Repulsive, repugnant, despicable, dimwitted, etc.
SAN CARLOS, CA, AND MADERA, CA – In an egregious and deliberate move to ban hundreds of thousands of legal firearms and harm law-abiding California gun owners, California Senator Leland Yee (D-San Francisco) has amended his bill SB 249 to make possession of all Bullet Button, or “maglocked”, firearms a criminal act as of July 1, 2013. Sen. Yee’s chief-of-staff, Adam Keigwin, has said that California should ban all guns, even bolt-action hunting rifles.

The disconnect between the Brady disciples and logic can be infuriating, but the truth can’t be ignored.
Friday’s horrible shooting in Colorado occurred in yet another place where guns are banned. And that’s consistent with a trend: With a single exception, every multiple-victim public shooting in the U.S. in which more than three people have been killed since at least 1950 has taken place where citizens are not allowed to carry their own firearms.
