    While not everyones choice of action, I commend his efforts.

    The whole situation shows how incredibly fast a normal day can go south.........

    The reporter seemed to do a balanced piece. I just don't know what an AK15 is.

    Took some guts. Yeah, he was wounded by the cops already, but "if" still armed (which the story didn't say), he could have given Mr. Murray a bad day. Glad he wasn't hurt and good on him for doing what he felt was right. Could've went either way.

    What would an anti-gunner have done in this situation?

    I'm very glad that this toilet-wipe did not get away. Kudos to Harlan Murray, he's another great American hero.

    It was probably all he had to use.

    On another note:
    With proper shot placement, a .22 can kill the same as a larger caliber can kill. If you die from a gunshop wound, would you really care if it was a .22 that did you in or a .45? The result at the end of the day is the same; dead is dead.
