    Call him what he is, Jim. A +hug. Fun fact: blacks account for 51.3% of the homicides in the US but only make up 13% of the population. Ironic that you're asking McCrory to protect you from the exact parasite that the left breeds.

    Using a firearm seems like the 'go-to' reaction in situations that don't require it. It's incidents like this that cause all of us to have to fight for our right to bear arms.
    I hope the brother is okay

    If his brother had a gun he could have protected himself and it would have deterred the crime. Or at least this is the NRA's argument.
