    Although not mentioned in the article, the Lincoln Trading Post was a gun shop. These two are fortunate they were alive to appear in front of a judge for their no bail hearing. The elder, Miller, was reported on the local radio station as being homeschooled until high school, and had no "previous problems" and good morals.

    It's my opinion that all people commiting violent crimes (rape, drug dealing, and in this case homicide/attempted homocide) should be tried as adults no matter their age, when found guilty, should be punishable only by death. none of the "we have to rehabilitate them" pc crap and after their first appeal fails, then they need to be put down. Ammo is cheap, the chair and the injection is not cost effective and keeping them locked up for life is rediculous and a burdon to the tax payers.

    I'm curious what sort of crime spree they've been on beforehand. Seems a heck of a way to kick off a criminal career.

    Oh ... well. If that's the case, then never mind.

    I'm sure it won't happen again.

    How many times have we heard about "good" teens dressed in camo and armed with guns. Why did they want more guns? And what were they planning ahead? I would have preferred to read, Gunstore clerk shoots two teen robbers. Both victims transported to local morgue.

    I can tell you what he was thinking. He was thinking "I want some money, and I want more guns. Let's go into this gunshop and take some of each."

    What he wasn't thinking was "If I'm lucky enough to get out of this mess with my life, then I get to spend the next decade or so down at the dark end of Cellblock D married to the guy with the most cigarettes."

    I'm obviously with you there. I never did get the whole 'oh, we can lock them up and rehabilitate them' spiel. Ditto with the people who count it as a big victory when they pressure some poor state or county into granting a murderer life behind bars instead of the death penalty.

    What, so we can keep spending our tax money on these guys to inhabit the Hotel Alcatraz?

    If I did something that had life in prison on the line, I think I'd rather you just took me out back and shot me. Beats twiddling my thumbs for the next 68 years.

    Rope is better... It's not only cheap, it's reusable. :D

    And after witnessing a couple of public hangings, a few of these brats might reconsider a career as a violent criminal... A few adults might too.

    And even if it doesn't deter anybody else, it makes damn sure that the particular individual(s) it's applied to don't become repeat offenders....

    Hear, hear.

    Every time I hear somebody whining about how much it costs the state to put a criminal to death I have to remind them just how little six rounds of .44 mag really cost.

    So do most Pennsyltuckians. I wager our process is easier, cheaper, and been in force longer than yours. Hell, I know it is. Less than $30 no matter jurisdiction, no training, no prints.

    I'm trying to find out more about the place, but the best I can get right now is its a pawn shop licensed to sell. I've been to Gettysburg more times than I can count, but I don't know this shop well enough to comment on it clientelle.

    If they had gone a dozen miles west on Rt 30 into Arendtsville and tried this at Taylor's Trading Post, they would be dead. Scott and his customers would know what to do when seeing some kids with guns come thru the door with "protective masks" on.

    I don't think we can blame these kids. They probably didn't get hugged enough or got the wrong color bicycle when they were 12. It is clearly the parents fault. :banghead:

    And Miller's being homeschooled has what to do with anything?

    Nothing? Well, the media pukes reason, lets mention it anyway to smear homeschoolers.

    Ball'06: same here. If one of the plainsclothes guys weren't handy, one of us "Bubbas" would likely do the honors, probably 5 or 6 of us! Talk about STUPID!

    lol.... its more like the parents fault for hugging em to much and not teaching them about consequences. a whack on the rear will do that when the no's and time outs dont work.


    I apolgize for the typo in my first post in this matter, I meant drug dealers not dealing. In either case its dispicable.

    Just for clarification...isn't robbing an FFL a federal offense? Or is it only that if they actually stole a gun or guns?

    Will the local US DA be filing charges to send them to for a stay in a nice federal pound me in the ass prison, on top of the local charges?

    too early to tell. Right now they're awaiting trial on no bail. One's attorney is trying to get it moved back into the juvenile court system.

    Well not everywhere...when the punks stole 3 guns from my place amongst other things...the prosecuting atty failed to file for federal charges...instead plea-bargained it to possession of stolen property in exchange for testifying against the adult who "Fagined" them in the burglary. Come time to testify, the punk told them "FU":neener: ...and walked because there were no teeth in the back of the agreement. "because they always testify". I spent 3 years and a LOT of money going after the prosecutor, the court and the punk. I have recieved 2 restitution checks over the last 4 years...totalling $8.15, this on a $2000.00 judgement.:fire: :banghead: :cuss: :barf:

    Am I happy....NO

    I think Col. Jeff was right: "The solution to armed robbery is a dead robber--on the scene."
