It has been said that there is nothing that stops a bad guy like a good guy with a gun. With the liberal media outlits such as CNN, MSNBC, and others calling for more gun control, you won't hear them reporting this:

Armed Grandmother Stops Robbery, Knife Slashing at Grocery Store


When CNN's Piers Morgan goes on his anti-Second Amendment rants, he never acknowledges the drop in the overall U.S. violent crime rate. In the past ten years, more people than ever have received concealed carry permits and are arming themselves in their homes and on their property. As a result, rape, murder and assault are down. Responsible armed citizens stop violent crimes from happening everyday. The latest news comes from Wisconsin where an armed grandmother stopped the robbery of a grocery story and saved herself from a knife slashing in the process.

CNN finally posted the home invasion story....a week after it happened. Of course, thick with spin.

How was a causal relationship determined? If that's true, then good. My grandmother actually got a concealed carry permit just last year. I was glad to hear it. If I ever had to live in an area with high crime, I'd most likely get one myself. But then again, I'd most likely not live in a high crime area. That's a high priority for me.

Not saying CNN didn't have "thick spin," but this story isn't spin-free either.

Why do they refer to her as a "grandmother"? Her status as a grandmother isn't even relevant to the story. Her status as a business owner is. Dare I say if the husband had been the one who stopped the robbery, they probably would have said "business owner" and not "grandfather."

"Armed Business Owner Stops Robbery, Knife Slashing at Grocery Store." There is definitely some "spin" in the way they refer to her. There is a certain connotation to the title when you say a "grandmother" stopped a robbery, which isn't there if you say a "business owner" stopped a robbery. "Business owner" doesn't get the same emotional reaction as "grandmother" does.

So you want nuclear weapons to be legal and affordable?

When you are being robbed, remind me to respect you and to not draw out my weapon as you and the far left nut jobs want to ban all guns.

Even if I wanted them to be legal, they would in no way be affordable- ever.

The news and media is geared to the intellect of 7 year olds.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%

Wow! 726 reports! That's less than a tenth of gun murders.
Also, where will you get the gun?

It does follow. You don't think that guns kill people, so you must not think that nukes kill people.

Ah, there's the rub.

All these murders you're alluding to -- were they from legally obtained guns?
