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.

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?
You already know. You've seen Obama talking before.

It's funny that he could make such a moronic and dangerous statement, yet still think he's qualified to give firearms advice.

Well, at least he's supremely qualified to be VP ...............after all, he graduated at the "top of his law school class" on "a full scholarship", and got "three degrees in undergraduate school".......

The same way anyone lies. Utter falsehoods. It helps to have the media on your side.

It's a pattern, Rebound. Going back to the original AWB, when she helped orchestrate dog and pony shows at police gun ranges, having officers fire fully automatic real AK47's at cinder blocks, and chewing them up with magazine after magazine, to show how "powerful" and "deadly" "assault weapons" were. (Leaving out of course that any cartridge will chew up cinder blocks). And it's the same pattern that causes Carolyn McCarthy to demand her legislation banning "barrel shrouds" be passed, when she had no idea what one was [youtube.com].

I know to the anti gun faithful, accuracy and honesty aren't important, but don't expect the rest of us to just roll over.

How do you know it was a mistake? Maybe because she is supporting your POV? Your post history suggests you aren't as forgiving and understanding when the person that makes a 'mistake' has an (R) after his or her name.

Grandmother Killed 2 Children, Herself: Cops [nbcconnecticut.com]

A grandmother who was supposed to take her two grandsons from daycare to their birthday party at home instead killed the boys and herself, Connecticut state police said.

All three bodies were found in a car Tuesday evening, two hours after an Amber Alert went out for the 2-year-old and 6-month-old. Police have classified the case as a double murder-suicide and said all three had apparent gunshot wounds, according to state police.
-----------------

Rumor has it that the gun was a 38 revolver, no news on if she had a permit, whose gun it was, etc.

But wait, these gems:
http://www.nbcconnecticut.com/new...46111.html

And....

http://www.wpri.com/dpp/news/crim...ar-history

Paternal great-grandmother, Marcia White, said the boys' mother, Brenda Perry, asked Denison to bring along another relative when picking up the children. White said Perry feared the boys were too much for Denison - who'd been diagnosed with bipolar disorder - to handle

---------------

Other news stories indicate that the parents knew the woman was unstable and "mentally troubled" but still had her on the list to pick up the kids at daycare.

So is it the fault of the gun, or some crazy woman and a family that ignored the brewing storm?

The news today was talking about Diane Feinstein and the congressional hearing today. They showed part of the video she showed of "semi-auto assault weapons to be banned." Sure enough, cut to a guy on a gun range unleashing full-auto onto a target.

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 just came across this video and was going to post it, but see you beat me to it. Hilarious while at the same time very sad and troubling...

During the run-up to the CA ban in 89, they did those dog and pony shows on a daily basis, covered by various medias, always using real machine guns, and always shooting up something fragile and easily broken apart. They were able to convince a large percentage of the non-thinkers that assault weapons were "more powerful" than regular guns. You still see some of our resident anti-gun enthusiasts parroting that absurdity.

I can't imagine what it would be like to take a position that required me to accept lies, that I knew to be lies, and re-tell them as often as I can.

You mean like this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ngYZKTrwfoM ? I agree that kind of full auto "style" should not be available to the general public.

The 55% of Americans who want an assault weapons ban are inaccurate liars. Everyone else is accurate and honest and pure as the new fallen snow.

It matters not even if 100% want them banned.

What about the Reason poll that said a majority of American's don't want an 'assault weapons' ban? What about their additional polling which suggested that a large percent of people polled didn't know what an 'assault weapon' was? Does your 55% include people who think 'assault weapon' refers to full auto machine guns?

Reason asked 500 people what is an 'assault weapon'. Here is what they said about the results:
Quote :
About two-thirds of the respondents described "assault weapons" as guns that fire rapidly, guns that can fire a large number of rounds without reloading, guns with a lot of "power," or guns used by the military. More than a quarter described them as "machine guns," "automatics," or the equivalent (e.g., "multiple rounds with just one pull of the trigger").
http://reason.com/archives/2013/0...ult-weapon

So you are saying 55% of American's want an assault weapon's ban yet 25% think an assault weapon is a machine gun. Do you think they just mean a ban on the sale of machine guns to the public or a ban on ownership?

It's not a mater of honesty as you are attempting to frame it. It's a matter of knowing about the subject. Many people can honestly think antibiotics will cure a viral infection. Does that mean we should do what they say?

I agree, looks like a machine gun to me. How do you make it illegal though? It's one thing to say it should be illegal. It's another to write a law that makes it happen.

Notice what they're not showing you....the complete lack of ability to hit anything with any accuracy. Full automatic fire sucks. The phoney bouncing bump firing is even worse. Even if it skeers you.....

The Hollywood bank robbers fired hundreds and hundreds of rounds, from real machine guns. They killed no one, despite a street full of targets.

The day criminals start using bolt action scoped deer rifles, is the day we'll really be in trouble.

Of course, you and rebound will just lead the charge to ban extra deadly sniper rifles.

"No one needs to have a gun that shoots that accurately"!!

No, they've just been lied to by folks like you so much that they don't know what the truth is. I regularly talk with folks who have false ideas about guns and gun laws. Most of the time, they completely change their position when facts are explained to them.

You've had your inaccurate and dishonest claims destroyed here over and over, yet you just come back repeating them, and more, ad naseum.

I'm glad I don't need to lie, to make my arguments.
