    Martin Luther King Jr. High School coach shoots attackers

    I guess this high school wasn't quite the free fire zone these thugs were hoping for. And the old guy wasn't as helpless as they were hoping for either.

    Good story, thanks for posting. Just posted it to Facebook.

    It is up to us, responsible gun owners to get stories like this out to as many people as we can.

    Be safe!

    Good for him. I am glad he or anyone else wasn't hurt other than the BG's.

    YES. Pass the word. With more woman and elders successfully defending from Bad Guys....it makes it safer for both groups (or in my case double good). Maybe women and elders will not be looked at as defenseless prey. If faced with Bad Guys, I would try like heck to advance this concept. No one has the right to take my life or well being.....except GOD. And he hasn't called yet.

    I am not delusional. I know there is a "winner" and a "loser" in these incidents, but I will not go without putting up a fight that the BAD GUY will not forget. I will be going for the WIN.

    Johnnuke, be nice.
    When you get into your 60's all of a sudden 70 years old doesn't look like an old person anymore.

    Ah, another fatal flaw in the victim selection process. Oh, well. Too bad! The gun control nuts must be just inconsolable right now! They have lost a vital statistic in the murder of the coach, the world is down at least one punk, two girls WERE NOT 'violated' at gun point or worse and the fact that guns protect lives has been proven yet again. What a shame.

    But if I'm one of the two girls dads? I'm buying the coach a beer every weekend for a year, at least!

    And that's how easy it can be, being armed and capable of withstanding violent attack. Not to say that anyone's likely to respond so well in a similar situation, but it's a far sight better than being forcibly disarmed by the state and having only your wishful thinking to save you.

    Kudos to the brave soul for being at the right place at the right time. Getting it done ... one life at a time.
