    Here is a CCW shooting news report from yesterday where it seems that someone is making up a bunch of nonsense. Be sure to watch the video and hear the iffy-ness straight from the horse's mouth.

    At the end of that video the female newscaster says "unbelievable story"

    I have to agree.

    Never fire unless you SEE the threat. An open window is not a threat.
    Psalm 144:1
    Blessed be the Lord, my rock, who trains my hands for war, and my fingers for battle.

    Romans 13:4
    But if you do wrong, be afraid, for he does not bear the sword in vain. For he is the servant of God, an avenger who carries out God's wrath on the wrongdoer.

    I think it comes from the other end of the horse. Neither story makes any sense at all.

    At 1am if you closely follow someone you could be considered a bad guy.

    Report the drunk driver and avoid him.

    If I were to be out at 1am and I were to see a drunk driver I will give him plenty of room while I call the PD and report his location, no way am I going to try and stop or detain him.

    Young, who said he had been shot before, said he thought he fired three times but because he was scared and shaken up "apparently I shot the whole magazine."

    What an idiot. If the details add up the way they sound in the article, I hope he is charged with attempted murder. You are in a 4,000 pound box of metal capable of going 120 MPH. No need to shoot. No need to stop your vehicle to place yourself in even more danger to eliminate a "perceived" threat.

    Maybe he was shot before because he opened up on some grandma with her window open on her skylark

    Sounds like a real tool. I agree, if for some inexplicable reason you feel threatened because you're being followed, drive to a police station! Don't get out of the car and fire 15 rounds into the other guy's car! Unless some mitigating details come to light I'd say Leonard it going to jail for a spell.

    Hmmmm? Allowing the media to interview you (the shooter) after the incident? G-U-I-L-T-Y in my book.

    Yeah, one permit holder down, and rightfully so in this case. His story sounds like a crock.... The hospitalized guys story sounds a little n the wild side too.. So you called the police because you think the guys drinking. Okay, so why escalate the event, buy approaching him. Sounds like two stupid awards are in order here.
