    This is totally off the rails, I'm done.
    "Thread: Bank owner celebrated for "catching the bad guy" - not sure how I feel about it" is the topic, and we are discussing how we feel about it. How am I off-topic?

    I can't explain it to you anymore, I tried. What you just said contradicts your requests for facts, and you asked about a totally irrelevant "pretty sure" I just threw in there.

    Done, adios.

    That probably leaves Mike with maybe 2 friends left... his gun and perhaps a cat. He seems to be here to debate others to stroke his own ego. Must suck to be lonely... Just my opinion of his demeanor. If this gets me banned, so be it. It's hard to enjoy these forums with this kind of BS going on.

    Cavejohnson sometimes we have to stand up for ourselves to protect our love ones, you, or someone in need of help, or elderlies, what im impling is cops cant always be there for you at the moment, this guy is a bad felon and he needed to be stopped right there an then, no doubt, he is a threat to society, he gets away he will do it again, if more people were like this hero there would be less crime !!! Isnt that a good thing to know ?? You, your family, love ones are protected by the law and outstanding citizins that risk themselves to do just that? Its ok to be scared of these ferosious felons there animals, most people freeze close there eyes and hope that everyting goes away... But its a good feeling to know not everyone is not like that this is reallity im sorry, live it learn it and stand up.... Eddie

    I fully understand defending people from violence, I've already said that.

    This wasn't defending against violence, it was pursuing someone who stole money and was no longer a threat to his employees.

    If you think running after thieves and holding them at gun point is a good idea, go for it. I'm not doing it though, material items don't matter that much to me.

    ....Weird? The opposite of a gunbuster sign. Kinda defeats the purpose of "concealed", no?
    Yes it the opposite of a gunbuster sign. Probably more effective at preventing crime though.

    Woooow!!

    I'm glad I brought up the discussion because I personally learned something about my state's law and enjoyed seeing the different views.

    But....I say we all drop this thread now and kick back a beer!
