THIS Is Why You Need A Gun

I would not have chosen a .22 caliber for the job, but this is an example of how important shot placement is. It doesn't matter if you are carrying a caliber suited to stop a charging rhinoceros if you only manage to nick his ear.

From the article: "When deputies got to the scene just after 6:00 a.m., they found the suspect unresponsive on the floor. Richland County Coroner Gary Watts said Carson died from a single gunshot to the chest."

This is also an example of how a gun puts a smallish woman on equal ground with a man who stands a foot taller than her, weighs another hundred pounds more than her, and is intent on doing harm to her.

But the gun grabbers will call this another needless gun death. Because, you know, if she had been robbed, raped and killed she would at least occupy the moral high ground. Too bad that would have gone along with occupying the physical under-ground.

Good for her. If more rapists, thieves, and lone gunmen were killed in the process of committing a crime and couldn't expect a fair trial in court.... a lot of this garbage would stop.

I remember back in the early 90's(when I lived in Memphis) there was a summer where there was a sudden upswing in the # of convenience store robberies. Just shortly following that upswing there was a sudden down-swing in the number of robberies at these convenience stores.

At the the same time this was going on there was a sudden upswing in the number of robbers that were getting shot and killed in these convenience stores right before the number of robberies suddenly decreased.

I think the two event were connected.

Here's a hint. It had nothing to do with mid-night basketball games sponsored by Bill Clinton and AL Gore ....

I lived in Millington, just north of Memphis, the first time in 1985 and the second time in 1990.
Funny how that whole correlation thing happened...I'm sure they aren't in any way connected ;)
Thanks for dropping by Matt!
