    As we used to teach in the spook business, carry a 25 if it makes you feel good, but do not ever load it. If you load it you may shoot it. If you shoot it you may hit somebody, and if you hit somebody - and he finds out about it - he may be very angry with you. -- Jeff Cooper

    A repeat violent felon, now with two aggravated/armed robbery "feathers" in his cap. It's time this guy was erased from society. May he be "gotten" before he gets someone else.

    But I don't understand. This guy had gone to jail before. He was let out so he must have been rehabilitated right? How could he have committed a crime like this if he was rehabilitated? [/SARCASM]

    This goes to show, even when faced with what some call a superior weapon, shotgun/handgun, you can win. It all comes down to training and who you are. Only thing I see wrong with what this guy did is, he only shoot the BG once. I my eyes he should have shot him to the ground. If he had maybe we would be referring to him in passed tense and he would be no longer a cost to society.

    What is it with Walgreen's and shotguns?

    Reminds me of this guy... another CCW holder against a shotty (though the shotty was not loaded)... good interview video at the end of the article for those who haven't seen it.

    It worked out well in both cases, the handgun against the shotgun... glad for that.
    It could be worse.
    A law that burdens the exercise of an enumerated constitutional right by simply making that right more difficult to exercise cannot be considered “reasonably adapted” to a government interest, no matter how substantial that interest may be.

    And another thing... as a convicted felon this guy was not allowed to have a gun, right? He was breaking law by being in possession of a firearm.

    It had to of been a pellet gun or air soft because felons can't have guns.
