    I always have wished to see the expression on the faces of those that bring a knife to gunfight!

    The man with the knife is described as a Hispanic male, about 25 years old. He was wearing baggy blue shorts and a dark T-shirt.
    They forgot to mention baggy blue shorts with a stain in the rear!

    Congratulations goes out to the fellow CCP holder that was prepared to take responsibility for his own safety.

    This is so sad. Here we have a disadvantaged under privileged yout who has a struggling budding criminal career and this guy misses a prime opportunity to give him the Granite Plaque. Its obvious this young “Wanna be Gangsta” needed the mans’ money to buy proper fitting clothes so he could go look for gainful employment with dignity. Now this possibly undocumented Democrat will have to rob a Laundromat and clean out his blue shorts with the yellow stain.

    All I can figure is the window glass MUST have been rolled up at the car wash and the drivers’ deductible was more than the cost of the window replacement!
    Too bad he couldn’t have gotten it rolled down before he played his TRUMP card.

    Colorado Springs police said a robber got a surprise Tuesday night when the man he attempted to rob pulled a semi-automatic gun.
    And thus the essence of the power of concealed carry. The element of surprise.

    Two sides of the same coin. Only in this case a crime was committed, and the GG was very close to a lot of police and court action that I'm sure he's rather avoid.

    Good story, but as usual, them media has to describe a semi-automatic handgun. One of my pet peeves.
    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    A lamb looks like a lamb. Whether he is concealing or open carrying. He still looks like dinner to a wolf.

    In fact, a lamb open carrying a gun on each hip will still look like dinner to a wolf.

    Your analogy is a little off there... An armed thief is a wolf... and a person were a lamb, they would have no gun. If a person were CCing they would be more like a rottweiler in sheep's clothing. If a person were OCing, they would be more like a rottweiler with a spiked collar.

    Which one is the wolf going to go for first? I guess that depends if he is looking for a fight.

    I agree with Chad, it is not the visible lack or presence of a gun that determines if one looks like dinner. A chihuahua might have a spiked collar, its still a chihuahua.
