    News Article Good Reason to Carry

    I live near Flint and CC everyday, on top of this article there is a serial killer with 5 stabbing murders so far. We need to encourage people to get armed and trained to protect themselves and their families.

    This guy in the article was thinking ahead and shot three BD's.

    sounds like a good shoot provided the group of five actually did demonstrate that they intended to rob the victum, not just asking for directions. I have to admit I am impressed that he got at least 3 good hits on the suspects. Thats pretty darn good shooting.

    Wow, 5 on 1, If this was an attempted robbery they would of probably beat the **** out of him to get what they wanted. Good shoot it sounds like.

    Apparently he shot them outside his house.

    5 on 1, if it is a robbery, I'd be fine with that on a Jury. I would personally consider being attacked by 5 unarmed individuals a deadly threat. Disparity of force, big time.

    The news report on TV last night said that one of the 5 bad guys pulled a gun on the man first.

    They didn't have to shoot first in Michigan. They broke into his house, he was home, it's a home invasion. He has the right to shoot every bullet he has until all 5 are conscidered no longer a threat.

    How bad could this have been if he was not armed? We would be saying if only he had a gun. Good news he did and knew how to use it!

    Excellent work on the part of this victim, except that he didn't make ALL of them "dead offenders".
    And here I thought Flint was just starting to become a safe city.

    20+ years ago when we first moved to our city, there was a serial rapist and later murderer running around town. One morning before work, looking out of the top story window of our condo into the woods I spotted a guy sneaking around. I took my .45 1911 and went out on the patio and when he saw me he hightailed it away but I got a good look at him and put in a report. I thought it was the dude. Well, guess what, it was him. They got him a few weeks later and I immediately recognized him! Talk about a reality check!

    Some close minded people who think "guns are bad" think that until they need one. Imagine if this guy couldn't protect himself.
