Like wow, I agree with carry ok. The robbers were the real victims that were forced to rob the store in order to provide for their victimized families. Garrison Keiler was just used as a tool to help bring things back into balance in our universe. He should be very happy and proud (sarcasm, folks...)
The first rule of self-defense is to avoid the situation. The second rule is Train and Prepare.
Well, I don't think it's a good thing that anybody gets robbed because that means that some totally worthless scumbag out there got away with taking things that rightfully belonged to somebody else.
Always remember the following phrase "It is righteous to be a conservative and criminal to be a liberal." My friends, liberals live in a fictitious world of fantasy, hipocracy and utopia.
I enjoy his radio show. I think he keeps his politics out of it. It's unfortunate his bookstore was robbed, and I hope his brush with income redistribution has been a teachable moment.

I've always enjoyed Garrison Keillor's radio programs since I first heard them back in the early '80s. They feature a truly wide range of entertainers and styles. As far as his politics, I agree with some of it, disagree with other parts of it. I can accept people who disagree with me.
It doesn't seem to me that support or lack of it for self-defense, 2nd Amendment, concealed carry, etc. would have played much of a role in this crime. This was a burglary, not an armed robbery. I suppose the lessons to learned are 1) don't trust your neighbors 2) invest in hardening your place of business, including extra surveillance, steel bars, unbreachable and immovable safes, 3) hire well-armed and trained 24-hour security guards w/dogs, and 4) razor wire on the perimety. Now that's a nice picture of small-town Americana.
I think it's pretty sleazy to gloat over someone's place of business being burglarized. I doubt if you'd appreciate it if you were a victim of a crime, and others gleefully used your misfortune for political fodder.
