Manatee County sheriff's deputies continue to investigate an incident in which a man fatally shot an alleged robbery suspect Sunday night at his Bradenton home.

Two men were sitting in the carport of a residence in the 4200 block of 24th Street West about 10:20 p.m. when three suspects, dressed in black and wearing masks, approached on foot. James Brady, 26, allegedly pointed a handgun at one of the victims, ordering him to the ground, according to the sheriff's office.

That's when the victim, who has a conceal-carry license, pulled out a handgun, according to Dave Bristow, sheriff's office spokesman. Gunfire exchanged between the two men



Score one more for the good guys.

I think at one point there was a discussion (or at least some comments) in regards to shooting to kill vs shooting to injure/maim. Wondering if that is where this came from. I don't remember anyone saying it was best to shoot at any movement first, then question later. Admittedly, more often than not I'm not consistently following these threads, so it of very possible I'm wrong...
That often comes from the absurd "why didn't they shoot to wound him?". People watching too much TV shooting the pistol out of the gunslinger's hand.

Instead, we infringe on the rights of law-abiding citizens and turn non-violent people into criminals with our new laws when we don't keep the violent once in prison or enforce the laws on them.
According to the logic in the podium, laws are not being ENFORCED. Why is that Mr. Garcia? Last I heard, you can't get elected if you're SOFT-ON-CRIME.

... why not try (just for a year) actually locking criminals up?
Cops are too busy chasing down kids who are smoking pot in the park and other non-violent drug offenders.

In 2010 there were 13,122,110 arrests. Of that total 1,638,850 were drug related. Which is roughly 12.5%

There more arrests regarding property crimes. More arrests regarding violence. More arrests regarding DUI... I could actually continue but you get the point (actually you probably don't but still, hopefully most will). If you're confused, go through the numbers.

Are you even curious why law enforcement doesn't follow your advice? That they only use less lethal alternatives such as bean bags or rubber projectiles with subjects strongly believed to be unarmed? And even then, when employing them, their SOP is for firearm equipped officers to cover the subject while the officer deploys it? And they don't employ them when alone?

But I'm not criticizing your decision.. I support you 100%, just as I support those who choose to not use a firearm at all for self defense.

Please do me the courtesy of supporting my decision to use lethal force to defend against a home invader, especially since those who are the most knowledgeable and experienced with the subject, agree with my choice.

Like I said, Joe Biden is a moron.

This video is fun and educational at the same time. It's 90 seconds of Joe Biden telling everyone to fire a double-barrel shotgun into the air if your home is being invaded, followed by clips of people actually firing a shotgun.

It's also educational because it shows why I say shotguns are overrated especially for women. Well, besides what's in this video, shotguns are overrated for other reasons too.

I can't believe anyone would say something as stupid as what he said. Facepalm

Harder to aim: I'd love to see his reasoning behind this. I'd guess something to do with BBs versus a single bullet, however that doesn't mean a gun is inherently harder to aim.

Harder to use: Again, you are pulling the damn trigger, same functionality as his trusty ol' double barrel.

You don't need 30 rounds to protect yourself Exactly, all you need are zero because your dumbass shot the two in the gun Crazy

Clearly, he believes the old wives tale that shotgun pellets come out of the barrel at man size pattern, instead of the egg size pattern they actually produce at room distances. Not that he'd have any idea, since he's never done any shooting to test the idea.

But he's who we should listen to for firearms information......

Yes, that semi automatic with almost no recoil, is much harder to use than a manually operated gun with 10 times the recoil....

This one we have to give Biden the nod on.

He doesn't need any rounds, since he has 20-30+ Secret Service agents around him 24/7, who not only have plenty of 30 round magazines in their fully automatic guns, but have air assets and man portable missiles to get the job done.

Buy hey. you peons...... you can use a double barrel shotgun.....

For now.....until we get around to taking those away from you.....

For the broadcast, ABC’s Good Morning America producers edited out the first lady’s “automatic weapon” line.

“She was standing out in a park with her friends in a neighborhood blocks away from where my kids grow – grew – up, where our house is. And she was caught in the line of fire. I just don’t want to keep disappointing our kids in this country. I want them to know that we put them first.”

In the web edition of the story, however, Michelle Obama appears to be quoted in full:

“She was standing out in a park with her friends in a neighborhood blocks away from where my kids…grew up, where our house is. She had just taken a chemistry test. And she was caught in the line of fire because some kids had some automatic weapons they didn’t need,” she said. “I just don’t want to keep disappointing our kids in this country. I want them to know that we put them first.”





Michelle Obama lies like a thug about a recent chicago shooting. ABC of course covers it up.

So because she mistakenly said "automatic" instead of "semi-automatic," she must be "lying like a thug"?

Yeah, right.

How exactly does a thug lie, anyway?
