This actually came to my attention when it happened on Friday but I didnt have a chance to post it until today. The story is about 2 guys that break into a power equipment store and an employee who was working late spots one of them with a chainsaw in his hand and decided to protect himself. So he shot the guy and held the other intruder until cops arrived. The good news is we have one less scumbag clogging up Seattle streets and another legal effective defensive gun use. The bad news is this news story, the Seattle times just cant get over the fact that somebody would use a firearm to defend themselves so they wrote the most anti-gun story I have read in regards to a defensive shooting in a long time.
Some of the sample quotes are
“Police declined to say whether either of the intruders was armed with a handgun.”
WHO THE HELL CARES IF THE SCUMBAG HAD A GUN, WASNT THE FACT THAT HE HAD A CHAINSAW ENOUGH????
“The employee who shot Stapleton was interviewed and released by police, Whitcomb said. Whitcomb declined to say why the employee was at the store so late, but said it was not uncommon.” SO THE GUY WAS WORKING LATE OR NOT OR WHATEVER, HE HAD THE LEGAL RIGHT TO BE THERE END OF STORY.
It angers me to no end that this guy was forced to defend his life and is now being attacked by this nutty news paper.
