Concealed Carrying Grandfather Stops Armed Robbery

A 57-year-old man with a concealed carry permit and the sidearm to go with it was shopping at a Dollar General when two armed robbers showed up and, we can only assume, said "This is a stick-up!" They were wrong about that, it wasn't a stick-up, it was a gunfight. And they lost. The grandfather with the dangerous, child-murdering, warmongering pistol sprang into action and fired on the robbers, striking one twice and killing him. The other robber fled, but has been found and will most likely be charged with the murder of his accomplice.

Defining 'gun violence'

How do you define ‘gun violence?’

A crazed home-invader shot dead in North Bend after repeated warnings from the homeowner that he was armed; an ex-boyfriend killed by a Michigan woman as he was trying to strangle her; an image of Australian athletes in a United States gun shop holding shotguns and handguns for a photo; are these all examples of so-called “gun violence?”
