    Batman movie: Three men die protecting their girlfriends

    I have seen a bunch of posts on the Batman shooting about people who would lay their lives down protecting their family/loved ones. Here is an article about three brave young men who did just that.

    Very brave young men. So sorry they had to die to prove it.

    Sad, yet speaks highly of some of our youth.
    Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.

    Good to know that there are still honorable men like these guys. Such a horrible loss for us.

    It is dreadful that they were killed by this wicked nut. But they will find their reception by our Lord to be exactly as we would hope- "no greater love", and Jesus will reward them in a way we cannot comprehend. Our job now is to see that justice is served, and that those left behind by this act of pure evil are supported, and know they have friends in this world. God bless these young men.

    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    What these three did reminds me of the saying, just after 9-11......


    While others rushed out, they rushed in,(spoken in reference to all who were involved in rescuing folks in NY)

    Heroes indeed, yes.

    I feel for the families. Sounds like they raised some really good kids. Horrible loss.

    Goes to say that for every POS there's at least three honorable men. God bless them, the dads words were the hardest to read but kudos to them, they all raised true men.
    Why?? Because at the last second, the Police are minutes away.

    Heroes?

    Hmmm, calling these guys heroes? Don't really know about that. I think basically they were at the wrong place at the wrong time. I'm just hoping that these boyfriends really meant something to their girlfriends. Girls that age can put on a pretty good act. Their probably glad their still "alive". The smart thing to do would be to get out of there as fast as they could. I dought this shooter was that experienced with a gun.
