    I drove through Kansas City for the first time ever just a few weeks ago. I'll have to say I was extremely unimpressed at what filth-ridden and run down city that was.

    The store clerk did the right thing and that city has one less thug.

    Did you go strait through on I-70 or I-35? You lose some time but get better neighborhoods if you run around the outside.

    This local doesn't venture inside the I-435 loop very often. (Not that it's all bad, I just manage to not need to.)

    Took the freeway that goes through the city and right by the arches. There was no sign of life until we were about 12 miles out from the city.

    Police said a man was robbing the store at gunpoint when one of the two clerks pulled out his own gun and shot him in the neck.
    It's good to read about a person who had a plan and put it into action at the right time...but a single shot to the neck in a potential gunfight? Either he does a lot of practicing with his carry weapon and was very close, or he was very lucky, I'm happy it turned out the way it did, but it could have gone south in a hurry, sounds like he may have been trying for COM and flinched, or was trying for a head shot with a DA trigger and dropped the barrel at the long end of the trigger pull, either way he was able to obtain the necessary results.
    The first time you aren't armed and prepared may be the last time you wished you were.

    Someone ought to tell that newspaper to do a retraction on the 100th homocide of the year. That's once again biased reporting, they're trying to make it look like the clerk overreacted, when in actuality he probably saved lives and taxpayer dollars taking out the garbage.

    On the second link provided by the OP -- did anyone else check the comments on this? Wow, they were more gung-ho about this than we are!
    Anti-gunners seem to believe that if we just pass enough laws, we can have utopia. Unfortunately, utopia is NOT one of our choices.
