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.

In the article I saw today, the gun safe they were talking about was in Adam's room.

supposedly also a "gift voucher" for a gun from the mom, too.

The presence of a safe/it's status is the largest question left open here.

It is unclear to me if there was just one gun safe (in Adam's room) or two gun safes.

If there was one in his room I wonder if he purchased it himself to lock mommy out. Wink

It is possible. He shot her in her sleep with a .22.

Yet another patriotic, law abiding gun owner fighting for liberty, freedom, goodness, and blueberry waffles:

Quote :
“My brother was shot 30 feet from his front door by a guy with a concealed weapon,” Michael Upton told KSWB-TV News. “He was a good brother, a good father, a good humanitarian.

Nice selective quoting by the LA times and you. Same agenda, no surprise..... Family members who weren't witnesses, make great commentators.........

Quote :
Sheriff’s investigators arrested Michael Vilkin, 61, who owns the neighboring vacant lot off Lone Jack Road, next to the large home Upton rented.

A gardener who works on Lone Jack said he often spotted Vilkin cutting down trees lining a thin path that was to someday serve as the access driveway to the home Vilkin planned to build.

Vilkin told 10News in a jailhouse interview Friday that he fired in self-defense. Upton valued his privacy, Vilkin said, and the dispute over the tree-trimming was an ongoing issue between the men.

“It was self-defense. I did not go to him. He came to me, threatening and pulled a gun on me,” Vilkin told the television station.

Lt. Jim Bolwerk said Friday that he could not comment on Vilkin’s claim of self-defense, citing the ongoing investigation.

“We are still trying to determine exactly what happened,” Bolwerk said.

That just happened and it's under investigation. The shooter claims that he acted in self defense when Upton confronted him on his property and pulled a gun on him.

Who knows what really happened. You certainly don't. It's possible you chose a great example of someone who saved their own life with a gun.

As statistics prove, this is a common outcome when law-aiding gun owners decide to become law-breaking gun owners.

I have provided proof on numerous occasions that for every time a "home defense" gun is used in the home, it frequently is used by members of the family against members of the family.

Can you provide proof that for every time a knife is used in the home, it is frequently used to kill?

Sad case that ought to outrage all law abiding citizens. Given the fact that the assistant DA had been assassinated just 8 weeks before, it seems likely that the DA would have been trained in the use of firearms for self-defense and permitted to carry a defensive weapon. But that did him no good--what's the use of a personal defensive firearm against an assault rifle, which exists for the sole purpose of inflicting death with ease on a maximum number of targets?

Sources told CBS affiliate KTVT in Dallas that the DA was shot multiple times with what is believed to be an assault rifle, while Cynthia McLelland was only shot once. Sources also say that there were no signs of forced entry.

Your "proof" flies in the face of numerous peer reviewed studies that show defensive uses of firearms dwarf misuses of the them.

Regardless, what is your point? That a gun can be misused? Duh..... So can knives, as I've pointed out.

What you can't prove, is that reducing the firearms supply would result in less murders. The statistics suggest the opposite.

I hear that a lot. Funny how it's never backed up with proof.

What?

I'm not sure if you mean you don't accept the studies, or you're pretending they haven't posted here hundreds of times......

I suppose, if you consider radishes to be targets.
