CNN reports on this, another fatal shooting in South Carolina. I realize it's not fair or very scientific to extrapolate an entire theory from one incident, unless that one incident is fairly indicative of the society at large. That's the question. Is this an anomaly? Or is this a fairly typical scene of what happens when the "good guys" are armed.
A South Carolina man shot an unarmed teenager to death after a scuffle at a weekend party thrown by his children and then shot two teens involved in a retaliatory shooting at his home, authorities said Tuesday.
You see, we're not talking about criminals here; these people are not crack dealers or mafia hit men. At least they weren't criminals until this tragedy occurred. These guys are just your normal South Carolina residents, an ever increasing number of whom go around armed.
Here's a wonderful video of the Pennsylvania granny who pulled a gun on a burglar in her home and held him till the police arrived. I love the way she made the crook dial 911 himself. Bob S. commented on another post about this case, which in my opinion is a perfect example of how gun ownership should be managed.
