    In the news story the victim recognized one of the guys. Hopefully they will find the crooks.

    Glad "Gramps" had the guts to be carrying. Wish he could have gotten off some well placed shots while they were inside his home.

    I'm a 75 yr. old Granpa and I practice at least every 2 weeks with my Taurus .357. I hope I never have to use it but if I do I have the confidence of using the gun.
    I have my CCW permit and do carry when I'm out and about.

    The kid needs to get his CCW, and be more alert for dirtbags.

    Good for Granpa. Smart man... I bet I know what his grandson will be getting for his 21st B-day. A license to carry and a .357 Magnum revolver to carry with him the next time he stops to get candy and a soda.
    You can give peace a chance alright..

    I'll seek cover in case it goes badly..

    That's nasty what they did to the young lad buying candy at the store!
    No warning just BANG down he went!
    This goes on in the UK but we're not allowed a pen-knife for defense.
    Was this in Missori?

    I feel for the people who live in nations where that simple God (my God and your God may differ so just play along) given right to life and the defense of it are denied to it's subjects or potential victims.

    “Laws that forbid the carrying of arms… disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes… Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.” — Jefferson’s Commonplace Book

    An armed man is a citizen. An unarmed man is a victim.
