Me? I congragulate her on her shot placement. The attacker is dead. She not only saved her life, but no telling how many other lives.

One for the gun lovers...


Today is January 15th - so far we've had SEVEN mass shootings this year:

Ban guns now so people like that kid trying to rob that woman won't be able to get a gun or the ammunition for it.


It's quite sickening how low the gun loving lobby will go to justify their precious guns.

This is a win for civilized society. One less animal in our midsts.

This woman prevented no telling how many murders by taking this clown out.

There's already a gun control law prohibiting excons from posessing guns. What good did it do?

Great, let's mobilize law enforcement and snuff out all those you consider to be "animals"


...this woman prevented no telling how many murders by taking this clown out....

Yeah


A potential mass murderer


Meanwhile how about the SEVEN mass shootings we've had this year?
(today being only the 15th day of the year)

It did NOTHING !!!

All gun controls are half measures until the root problem is expunged.

The 2nd amendment must be repealed before we can have any significant gun control.

If the victims had been armed and ready, there would have been 7 fewer nutjobs.

Yeah right.


Straight out of the "arm everyone who goes to church"


The problem with US gun crime is that not enough of the victims get to shoot back !!!

If there was no 2nd Amendment, that piece of **** would still be able to get a gun and that lady...well, at best, she would have been robbed. At worst, she would be dead. But, since we have a 2nd Amendment, the piece of **** is dead and the lady is alive...and not robbed.

I call that a win.

No one should of lost their life over this. Had that 19 year old kid not chosen to break the law agian he would still be alive today. It was his disregard for the law and life that resulted in this justified shooting. The suggestions of the woman should of just allowed herself to be robbed are ridiculous and anyone holding that opinion should be ashamed of themselves.

Not enough get to shoot back because people like you go out of their way to make sure they don't get the chance.
You may as well move across The Big Water if not already there and peddle you fish and chips.

Wonder what he would say IF it was his wife or girlfriend. Assuming he's old enough.

A win for law abiding citizens.

For criminals and the anti Second Amendment types....not so much.

Unfortunate that someone lost thier life, but it was the result of actions the criminal set in motion.

It's quite sickening how low the gun loving lobby will go to justify their precious guns.

1. Conflates legal/justified self defense with mass shootings. Fail
2. Proposes banning guns, a ludicrously implausible notion. Fail
3. Attacks gun owners as “gun lovers”, completely disregarding gun owners love for their lives and the lives of others. Fail

Unfortunate that someone lost thier life, but it was the result of actions the criminal set in motion.
^^ Best, most succinct response. :applaud

Is the HE a poster here or the editor? Either way My Opinion is the only reason someone would say something that stupid, should of let yourself get robbed, is because this story doesn't fit into the ALL GUNS ARE BAD narrative. It sad that some people would rather others be victims of crime than legally use a gun to protect themselves from crime to advance their anti rights agenda.

one of the problems with the GCAs and gun banning movement is they see all gun owners as part of the same group. They see honest gun owners as the same as criminals-or in some cases worse, since it is the voting patterns of gun owners that upset the gun banners

why do you keep howling for gun bans when

1) the second amendment prevents that

2) trying to enforce the collection of legally owned guns would get lots of people killed and probably start a civil war

3) and the government will keep buying guns which others can steal

Bring the Wild West to everyone's neighborhood.

No thanks !

yes, you want a society where honest people are helpless in the face of violent criminals. Such people will then be willing to cede more rights to the government in a ephemeral trade for more safety.
