    OK, well they aren't here, so I will stand in as the token anti-gun lib here. Personally, I'm glad this worked out the way it did, though sorry for the dead guy's family.

    Also, gun ownership should be restricted. Yes, WE WANT TO TAKE YER GUNS!!!!! Actually, no, but why don't we have a coherent national gun registry? Gun ownership is a heavy responsibility and should be treated as such. For every case where the victim defended him/herself there is another case where a two year old shot his mom in Walmart. Some people should either not own guns at all, or should be getting a lot more training.

    That you think this could be made a racial issue means YOUR comment was (ironically) the first racial post.

    He and Grand Union steer VERY clear of articles that shed a positive light on legal gun ownership.
