    Every once in a while I'm glad I was born with only one hand. Not only would i never shoot myself in the hand but I'm betting I'm the only person here to never hit their finger with a hammer.
    I carry to protect myself and my loved ones from the BG's. Not to solve societies problems. That said: if more carried the deterrent would only have a positive overall effect on those problems.

    I wonder how you can accidentally shoot yourself in the hand ? I'd love to see the video.

    As to the guy held at gunpoint later, someone nailed it: The Robber's buddy. It COULD be a case of someone going stupid places, doing stupid things, or in this case, hanging out with STUPID people. The friend could have been uninvolved. But the smart bet for the other employee on seeing the two of them were together was to control the other guy while his co-worker was resisting a robbery by the Bad Guy.

    Somewhere in the middle???

    You have got to be kidding???

    I can just see this as a new defense: "Your honor I asked him to give me all his money. And he argued with me. Yep, it was all just an argument."

    No offense PNUT, but come on. Just because the liberal media goes off the deep end of an empty pool, doesn't mean the truth is halfway down. Besides how in the hell are you going to stop before hitting bottom?

    Good 'un. And I bet you're right! (BTW--in case you have wondered, it hurts like a mofo when you hit your finger with a hammer...)

    Back on point--It is amazing how the media--both liberal and conservative--can take the exact same incident and turn it into two completely different things based on the words they choose.

    It reminds me of the joke that starts out with the people saying that something is a crock of shiite that stinks horribly and the decision makers calling the same thing a vessel of fertilizer that is very powerful. I guess it's all in your perspective...

    I guess my first question was: Who in the He11 is stupid enough to try to rob a gun shop?.

    Well, it has happened before, and people have actually been successful, believe it or not. But in general yes, I agree, its very stupid... as stupid as trying to rob a police station.
