Win one for the good guys. Here is a good one for NRA's Armed Citizen. For those that are not NRA members, in their monthly magazine, they have a page where a citizen lawfully defends himself with a gun ======================================================== Los Angeles Times: Jeweler Kills Gunman in His Store (you will need to reg/login to read story) [url]http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-jewelry26jul26.story?coll=la%2Dheadlines%2Dcalifornia[/url] LOS ANGELES Jeweler Kills Gunman in His Store By HECTOR BECERRA TIMES STAFF WRITER July 26 2002 The owner of a Beverly Hills jewelry store who shot and killed an intruder Thursday told police the man was holding a gun to his head when he reached for his own and fired repeatedly. Police responded about 1:30 p.m. to reports of gunshots at Mirage Jewelers on 9469 Little Santa Monica Blvd., said Beverly Hills Police Lt. Gary Gilmond. Officers entered the store and found the body just inside the entrance and the owner standing behind a counter, police said. Police said the owner told them that the man had drawn a gun from his waistband and led him around the otherwise empty store. At one point, the gunman pointed his weapon at the owner's head, the jeweler told police. The owner "drew his own handgun" and "fired on the suspect multiple times, striking him on the upper torso," Gilmond said. Police did not identify either man. The result of a police investigation will be submitted to district attorney prosecutors for review. If you want other stories on this topic, search the Archives at latimes.com/archives.

I heard this on the radio this morning, and the announcer said: "... and the [b]victim[/b] shot the [b]robber[/b] several times and killed him." She went on to say that police investigator said that this is self-defense and probably no charges will be filed. One for the good guys.

Well that has already started. On the evening news last night, some of the newscasters were alluding that the shooter was guilty of some law for killing the BG.

They HAD to report it, because everybody is doing it, they had no choice. But you can bet that this story will fall off the radar screen in a day or two.

LaLa Land? The store owner is probably screwed. If he doesn't get an anti-gun crusading DA chasing him, you can bet the perp's survivors' lawyer probably will. We've all heard the asinine arguments against the guy before too. The liberals out there are more afraid of guns than they are of BGs. Go figure. Out here, the sheriff and the DA would already have pinned a medal on the store owner for taking out the trash. [}:D]
