No need for a gun?

Split-second choice ended with NY student dead

http://news.yahoo.com/split-second-choice-ended-ny-student-dead-062837730.html

"The big question is, how do you know, when someone's pointing a gun at you, whether you should keep talking to them, or shoot?"
You should shoot. You don't know what the criminal is going to do. If it is my life or his, I choose to protect my life. Also, the "wonderful" gun laws seem to be "working well" in NY... :banghead:

Why do we have negotiate with violent criminals? Just remove the scum from the earth and everyone is better off.

Man charged with felony murder after man shot during robbery

http://fox6now.com/2013/05/13/man-charged-with-felony-murder-after-man-shot-during-robbery/

Instead of trying to wrestle the firearm away, it would have been easier just to defend yourself with your own firearm.
To make this a little more understandable, Tate & Daniels were part of a group of 4 that robbed a home. Homeowner, said the suspects forced their way into his home, one of the suspects had a gun. Homeowner struggled over the gun, was able to access it and fired the gun one time. The bullet struck Tate in the groin, he died later. Since Daniels was involved in the commission of the crime, he is also responsible for the results, in this case including a murder homicide, the same as if Daniels had shot Tate personally and intentionally.

Anchorage, Alaska double murder, double rape... in home

http://www.adn.com/2013/05/25/2916156/man-woman-found-dead-in-double.html

Police say a registered sex offender entered a Mountain View apartment through an unlocked window, killed an elderly couple and sexually assaulted their 2-year-old great-granddaughter in an apparently random attack Saturday.

But elderly people don't need protection, and nobody needs to be ready to defend themselves in their home.

Hair Extensions: Hot New Underground Commodity

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/hair-extensions-hot-underground-commodity-100600130.html

A female burglar pepper-sprayed a worker behind the counter before grabbing about 10 packs of remy hair, which sell for $100 each. A male thief held a gun to another employee and had her take $1,000 from the register and shove more extensions into a garbage bag.

This incident is just the latest in a spate of hair extension heists that have been sweeping Chicago and cities such as Philadelphia and Houston.
Who needs a gun in a hair salon right?
