    Can't wait for the 'Way to Go' from the Spartanburg County Sherrif.

    Awesome use of deadly force. I just hope the other guy keeps running and doesn't come gunning.

    Hoo-ray for our side! I think.

    Every time I read about a citizen defending themselves like this, I think of the gang reprisals, the law suites brought by the survivors of the "he was such a good boy" criminal and the repercussions from our own law enforcement agencies. I've read article after article about home owners that loose everything because they defended their castle. The same is said of the innocent bystander that defends against a would be robber.

    This all proves to me, at least, that there needs to be as much effort to change tort as we put into changing the restrictions on gun ownership.

    All this having been said.... I don't think it would change my response in a robbery situation. The article eludes to the citizen effecting a citizens arrest. A conversation I had with a neighbor got me doing some research on the Florida statutes regarding citizen arrest. Anyone else look into their states statutes? And does anyone think of the consequences before they act or do most of us act and then think?

    And just in case the Sheriff doesn't step to the podium... Way to GO!!!

    My personality is who I am, my attitude depends on who you are.

    Too bad a life had to be taken...but thanks to the ccp holder, many were spared. Good for him to act and to squeeze the trigger at the moment of truth. This is why we carry...the Sheepdogs!! :)

    A citizen defending himself? How was he defending himself? He only needed to defend himself because he decided to get involved. So many things can go wrong that sometimes it's best not to get involved. What if the BG sees your gun, opens fire in your direction, and hits innocent bystanders? What if he kills you? I would certainly be in a civill suit in my neck of the woods for shooting this guy. You need to think long and hard about these scenarios before leaving the house with a firearm.

    We're not responsible for the bad guy, just ourselves. If he kills an innocent, that's on him not us. What if I don't do something and he shoots my wife? In my neck of the woods, this lac would get a free lunch.

    I do agree you should think long and hard about scenarios, and decide who you are. Whoever you choose to be is fine, as long as you are comfortable with the decision.

    This falls directly in the "you weren't there, you have no idea, put your bias away" category.

    The CCer made his choice, I think it was right, since I want there, and I would back him.
