Congratulations, someone finally took the law into their own hands. Take heed folks. Crime would definately drop if we scared these losers with force. Glad to see it wasn't a white suspect for once too. Good shooting partner.

Another fine example as to why to fight for the Second Amendment.

Just think. Had we had no second amendment, there would be nothing for the "law" to do but clean the mess up. Then the bad guy would be doing it again somewhere else, again. You know what they say; only the criminals and a tyrannical government will have guns in an unarmed society.

Hit one time out of three. We need to send him to a firing range to practice.

Another news source is reporting that the "suspect" was hit in the arm, leg & hip. I don't think 1 bullet did all that damage!! Maybe he's a better shot than we think!!

It will happen more and more...trust me. Congratulations to the citizen who took action to protect another. But I'm sure the ACLU and other organizations will find a reason to incriminate.
