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.

Why does every "successful" use of a gun for defense deserve a new thread?
Because of the 12,000 Americans killed in gun homicides last year; the MSM fails to report that law abiding gun owners save the lives of more than 50,000 Americans annually.

Is that why you don't have a link?

You've chosen a poor analogy, as there were 16 mass shooting murders [thenation.com] in this country last year and no commercial air crashes. [wikipedia.org]

But to your point, an airliner crash getting splashy news country does not justify creating a thread here for every successful airline flight.
a few of those 16 shootings were not mass killings. However, the fact is you have demonstrated that we could be under attack by a crazed gunman anytime, anywhere, in addition to being targeted for a crime, so a CCW is justifiable, not paranoid as many of you keep claiming.

Science is much more than a body of knowledge. It is a way of thinking. This is central to its success. Science invites us to let the facts in, even when they don't conform to our preconceptions.

By the FBI's definition only 7 were mass killings, 9 were not mass killings.

Really, (less than) 16 mass killings demonstrates "we could be under attack by a crazed gunman anytime, anywhere"?

I never said anything about the odds of that. I was talking about justification for a separate thread.

By your logic, you should carry a grounded lightning rod, cause you could be struck by lightning "any time, any where."

but it happens enough that you think we need widespread additional gun control measures.

Sorry, you can't have it both ways, either the risk of being in danger of assault with a gun is super low making people that want to protect themselves a paranoid OR the risk is high enough to warrant enacting legislation that may not only be expensive and potentially trample constitutional rights, but is clearly necessary when compared to other hazards people might face.

No, I think the government should provide multiple lightning rod shelters all around the country so that if I'm in an area where lightning is threatening, I can have the government protect me because if we can save only one life.... amirite?

Glad someone else noticed that too.
