    Good for him. I wonder how long it takes for the older gentleman to be demonized for protecting himself back with a gun.

    Which is what`s driven him to rob the elderly for his fix of bass strings and guitars!

    In a world without guns? The headline would read:

    "Elderly Couple Beaten To Death By Robber"

    He scouted the place and returned with a weapon, there`s little doubt what he had in mind. People should have the RIGHT to defend themselves FROM criminals... right?

    Good for them. Another reason why we need guns - because you just never know.

    Obama`s quick to speak out when a gun is misused. Why hasn`t he gotten in front of the cameras and thanked that man for improving the herd?

    Another distortion of the gun control argument from 5Cats. The article doesn`t say what type of gun they used, or how big the clip was, which is what the debate is about, not whether we should ban all guns.

    @FoolsPrussia: Nice try, but if it were Canada, Britain or Australia, would the Music Store guy have a gun? No?

    My case is proven.

    FoolsPrussia - You dips#it. It doesn`t matter what gun they used or what clip size was. Most likely it was a handgun, with a magazine larger than 10 rounds. You wouldn`t even bother trying to debate the idea of banning pistols because almost no one would be on your side. So dips#its like you go for the scary weapons first. The weapons responsible for a tiny tiny tiny fraction of all gun murders.
    There are 3 possible reasons to focus on such weapons:
    1. You are a scared, irrational dips#it.
    2. The real plan is to start with those weapons, and expand the ban slowly (so people don`t realize what your real intentions are)
    or (my favorite)
    3. You don`t really care if people are murdered as long as they are murdered 1 at a time. Only when 2+ are killed by someone at the same time it will be a tragedy. If this weren`t true you would be supporting laws that don`t strip constitutional rights. Laws that might actually have an affect on homicide numbers. Stay emotional,

    I fail to grasp how this is a good thing. If he wanted to kill anyone then he would have, instead he hit the old man with a stick. How is that reason enough for the death penalty? That`s seriously drated up. I hope the old dude is convicted of first degree manslaughter.

    @Canoas: Are you unable to read as well as being European?

    The guy went in there, beat an old man, beat an old woman, -without- provocation! WHY would you assume he`d do otherwise if they were unarmed? WHAT could lead you to conclude that he beat them "because they had a gun"? He didn`t know they did, obviously! He found out the hard way.

    Can`t admit even the smallest truth, eh? If they hadn`t shot him, he would have beaten them far worse. There`s NO indication he even wanted to steal anything!

    I find it sad how the people who express that "Minor crime isn`t cause for the death penalty" also expect that the police will magically arrive within 30 seconds anywhere they are.
    I`ve seen people`s opinion on gun control flip 180 the moment they`re the victim of a violent crime.

    Canoas-"I fail to grasp how this is a good thing."

    On the other hand, you did not fail at demonstrating your ignorance.

    Canoas-"How is that reason enough for the death penalty?"

    Please note for future reference: In some parts of the world, assaulting a man`s wife will ALWAYS warrent the death penalty.

    And I`ll put it plainly: My wife`s security is more important than some animal`s life. If a dog attacks my wife, it will get shot. Same thing with any animal, no matter how many legs it walks on.

    And `death penalty` is something handed out by judges. Killing an animal in the act is justice.

    Canoas-"I hope the old dude is convicted of first degree manslaughter."

    The `old dude` will not be charged, and will probably receive a lot of thanks from the community.

    @SleepyHallow: Nice!

    @Simbosan: Lolz! Ban pressure cookers!

    I hope the old dude is convicted of first degree manslaughter.
    @Canoas: I skipped over this little "gem" of yours! Seriously?
    The criminal probably has a LONG history of violence. Searching his name brings up a career criminal from North Carolina...
    A music store owner? I be he`s never even gotten a parking ticket before, nevermind HURT anyone!

    Yeah, good idea, throw him in jail for defending himself and his wife! Genius!

    canoas - Screw you, your generation, and that P.O.S continent you live on. Only a complete waste of skin would feel even an ounce of sympathy for the criminal in this case.

    Yeah, it all makes sense, he wanted to kill the old man yet he hit him once. SURE. THAT`S EXACTLY HOW YOU KILL SOMEONE. HIT HIM ONCE AND HOPE HE HAS AN HEART ATTACK. If he wanted the old man dead I`m pretty sure the old man would be dead by now.
    But hey, I`m glad you see it like that, I fully support Americans killing each other for no reason whatsoever.

    HURR DURR I DON`T LIKE PEOPLE WHO VALUE HUMAN LIFE.
    GJ retard.



    If I ever go to America I`ll make sure I legally kill as many people as possible. I`ll be the first law-abiding serial killer.

    ...yet he hit him once.
    @Cnoas: Link? Or STFU!
    If you add YOUR IMAGINATION to the story? They yes, it can mean ANYTHING you want it to mean!

    Meanwhile, dealing with KNOWN FACTS leads us to a different conclusion...

    @ILikeLogic: "ad hominem" Apparently you "like logic" in name only...

    Canoas: You don`t know poo about the criminal`s intent. He could have very well been mentally unstable, and had meant to kill them with the club. Bottom line is, when an intruder walks in and starts harming your wife, you do whatever you can to stop the bastard, and in his case the best way to remedy the situation was to shoot the bastard. Now if the store owner were 30 years younger he might have been able to use his fists, so what did you expect him to do
