What does the "permit" have to do with it?

Home Depot Loss Prevention Officer Sure Is Glad There Was a Concealed Carry Permit Holder Around

Who needs to carry a firearm at Home Deport right?
If the person who came to their aid had not had a "permit" would you be ok with all of them being killed or injured? The "permit" doesn't enable people to defend themselves and others, and is only a bureaucratic barrier to more being willing to do that. The relevant fact is that the man had a gun, and obviously knew how to use it.

It takes a good person with a gun (man or woman) to stop a bad person with a gun, whether or not they have the stupid piece of paper.

All I did was copied and pasted the article title...

No problem with that, protias... just asking. Why don't more people ignore the damned "permit" crap, or protest the use of it like this?

The good Samaritan intervened with a GUN, not a "permit." If all he'd been "holding" was the "permit," they might all be dead. That's all I'm trying to point out, not criticizing you. :)

I could go into a long diatribe of the whole "permit" thing, but I'll summarize it, rights are given from above, they are not taxed.

I don't care if he has a permit or not. My brother is a convicted felon, if he pulls a gun on someone who is robbing and may kill me, I will be eternally grateful. And say thanks bro!



you're intentionally missing the point, which is simply this.. SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.

The name "Rambo" gets overused. Most people do not know when they are shot. Falling down when shot is a learned response...all this goes back to television sensationalism. The movie, the nickname, the learned behaviors...bleh. I train with the assumption my attacker will not fall until he goes into shock.
