    OK, I had a brain fart with the spelling in my header. I got it right in the post, and couldn't believe what I wrote in the title.

    More stupid reporting at its finest. He held a "legally issued" concealed carry permit? Does Wi have an illegally issued permit? Of course the BG had the illegal one, which is no permit at all.

    Too bad about the wound, but at least the GG kept his head on straight throughout the event.

    Good guy wins. Getting shot in the elbow most certainly would suck, but not as bad as getting murdered in front of your 5-year-old son.

    We don't even have permits in WI. We have concealed carry licenses. I know it's just a matter of semantics but I thought journalists were supposed to be masters of those along with accurate reporting. My bad.

    Good that he moved away from the car to protect his son.. A father that was thinking during stress. To bad about being shot in the elbow but it better than being dead.

    Glad it worked out ok, but the GG should work on his SA if he let a couple of kids get the jump on him like that.

    How dare the "legally licensed" gun owner shoot the poor misguided angel. Didn't he know this upstanding young man was an alter boy, volunteered at the neighborhood nursing home, helped little old ladies cross the street and loved his momma? Besides, he wasn't really robbing the man, it was just a loan, and he was going to pay the money back with interest!!

    Sounds like this man had some training and he also kept his head very well.

    And just one more case showing that no matter how many rounds they take, BGs are often not "stopped" instantly. I think many people tend to take for granted that a few well-placed COM shots will end things....not so. BGs (or defenders) often keep firing even when mortally wounded. Running off is a good outcome but not the only recourse the wounded have.

    The thing about "defense" is that it has practically nothing to do with guns. (As passed on by CCW9MM)

    wait, I thought if you gave a criminal what they wanted, no one got hurt.... I found it interesting that the victim complied, and then one of the two robbers asked the other for the gun so he could kill the victim...

    A point when people arguing NO need to carry but 5 or 7 rounds in the gun they have , and no extra mag or ammo on them as well. With two perps, the odds are highly against the good guy, but some people just don't get that.
