    It just sucks that guys like this discharge a weapon without thinking and it makes the respectable CWP holders look bad...

    Definitely NOT the way to handle a situation like that.

    Who does he think he is, the police? After all, they're the only ones who have a remote chance of getting away with something like that.

    This is the kind of fuel the anti-gun folks need to take try and take away our gun rights. This guy should have thought things out a bit more and not take matters into his own hands like that.

    It is different when you are being threatened at home (even then you have to be careful) but not out in the open.

    From the article, it sure sounds like very poor judgment on his part.

    I just got my CCW and the main takeaway from the class was to know when to use force, and when not to. The chump should have used his phone, just like I would have.

    Good Grief...

    I'm sure what he did was reckless and stupid. It is however realy hard to say what you would do till you were in that position. That is one big reason that there are just a very few folks that should carry GUNS.
