More criminal scum taking advantage of a gun owner who was doing the right thing, I'll bet if he was allowed to carry the outcome would have been different.

Naw, you got to remember, according to anti gun freaks its not the criminal, its the gun that causes the crime. And it was an elderly man who was the victim, seems like the criminal is also a pussy. LOL Give it a few minutes, lets see how many blame the ole guy and not the crook. LOL

Normal decency confines reality to abstract issues.

WorldNetDaily (WND) is an American web site that publishes news and associated content from the perspective of U.S. conservatives and the political right.[1] It was founded in May 1997 by Joseph Farah with the stated intent of "exposing wrongdoing, corruption and abuse of power"[2] and is headquartered in Washington, D.C.[ WND provides news, editorials, commentaries, letters to the editor, forums and conducts a daily poll. It claims its editorial content has a diverse range of viewpoints,[11] though predominantly from a right wing or conservative perspective.[1][12][13] Besides providing articles authored by its own staff, the site links to news from other publications. Notable staff includes Jerusalem Bureau Chief Aaron Klein, White House Correspondent Lester Kinsolving, and Staff Writer Jerome Corsi. Its commentary pages feature editorials from the site's founder, Joseph Farah and other social conservative authors such as Pat Buchanan, Ellis Washington, Ann Coulter, David Limbaugh, Bill O'Reilly, and Chuck Norris. It also has featured weekly columns by libertarians Walter Williams, Vox Day, Ilana Mercer, as well as liberals such as Maralyn Lois Polak, Bill Press and pro-life moderate Nat Hentoff.[14]

Joseph Farah (born July 6, 1954) is an American author, journalist and editor-in-chief of the conservative website WorldNetDaily (WND In 1991, Farah left the Union and co-founded the Western Journalism Center.[8] He launched the online WorldNetDaily in 1997.[9] Farah received the Washington Times Foundation National Service Award, in 1996.[3] He currently writes a weekly print column for the Jerusalem Post which is nationally syndicated through Creators Syndicate.[10]

Farah is among those who have promulgated conspiracy theories questioning Barack Obama's status as a natural born citizen of the United States and resultant eligibility to serve as U.S. President,[11][12] stating, "It'll plague Obama throughout his presidency. It'll be a nagging issue and a sore on his administration, much like Monica Lewinsky was on Bill Clinton's presidency" and "It's not going to go away, and it will drive a wedge in an already divided public."[13] Despite the release of Obama's notarized birth certificate abstract,[14] Farah demanded that Obama release his "long-form" birth certificate, which was subsequently posted on the White House's web site on April 27, 2011.[4][15][16] Farah had previously pledged $15,000 to the hospital where Obama was born upon the release of said document.[17][18] When Obama finally released the long-form birth certificate, he called it "fraudulent."[19]
