    One person with a CCW, and we wouldn't have had to read that.

    Okay... so, if these guys were found, why no arrests? And if not, how do they know the assailants ages so precisely? I'm guessing the authorities didn't actually find anyone yet?

    If there was a CCW there, the liberal media would just make them out to be more poor, misunderstood, disadvantaged bat and knife wielding 'children' killed by gunfire.

    I gotta get the XD 45 added to the permit. Loaded + 2 mags = 40 rounds. Oh yea! :D

    I believe that's true - even one person with a revolver would've probably stopped it. Having less rounds than attackers just makes them decide who'll be first!

    How could something like that happen in VA? Those are things I expect to see in WI or IL but not in a gun friendly state like VA.

    Yet another example of why it is crucial to be armed these days - not just armed, but armed with a gun.

    This also demonstrates with undeniable clarity why the antigun bigots are dead wrong. Where were the police when these people needed protecting?

    People in WI are generally better behaved:D

    Gun friendly state does not equal everybody (or even a large minority) has and uses CCW.

    I don't alway carry when I'm running errands to Home Depot or Walmart. OTOH, you will never catch me in a large group w/o a snubbie. State/county fairs, fireworks displays, and like events are fun, but magnets for drunken bubbas, and other degenerate 'utes who would cause mayhem.:cool:

    You have the freedom to carry and YOU are responsible for your own safety.

    Quick responce time too, I'll bet that 30 minutes seemed like hours and hours.

    Yes, Virginia is releativly gun friendly. However no one is required to carry. Lot's don't.

    If someone had shot one of the critters, the anti gun folks would be decrying the use of unequal force. Instead, the persons being attacked should have devoted 10-15 years of their lives, from a very young age, to getting black belts (itself a violent activity... but that seems to be ignored) so that they can simply take the bats away from the youths and humiliate them before sending them on their way.

    Forget what the media says. Who the hell are they? Worry about what happens in the court room. But if you killed one of those bat-armed "children" in self defense, well it's self-defense! Case closed, go home, chill out, have a snack, read a gun magazine.

    It's not freedom if you can't defend it.

    Whining about it does not make it any better. Everyone has a choice to make when confronted. Take your beating from the punk with the bat, or defend yourself. We can choose to be victims, or not. It is hard to sympathize with those that allow themselves to be some gang bangers plaything.

    Not true at all. The media reaction would be simply to ignore the story. Period. Had some licensed individual drawn down on these punks and/or shot one then 1) the attack would have been much smaller (as the cockroaches would scatter on the first shot) thus making it less news worthy and 2) the only media coverage would be local (or the news reports would not say it was a "civilian" but would imply that it was a police officer that did the shooting ... they have done that TONS of times).

    There are somewhere between 1.5 and 2.5 million self defensive uses of firearms every year that the national media largely ignores.

    Thats why you need to add this link to your daily rotation of reading material
    http://claytoncramer.com/gundefenseblog/blogger.html It'll make you feel a little better :D



    Side note: many states don't allow CCW licensees to carry at "public gatherings".

    I agree, The media will shy away from a story about guns used in self defense.

    You can also read about guns used in self defense here
    http://www.nraila.org/ArmedCitizen/Default.aspx

    I also post a few on my messageboard.

    The gun grabbers will never admit that there is a legitimate use for a firearm.
