    Found this and had to share it! Man, we as citizens should always have a right to defend ourselves with a firearm! Here is a GREAT example!!!!

    LiveLeak.com - brutal knife attack

    This video is not for the kids!

    Yes that is hard to watch.

    This video should be shown to all those "anti gun" people.

    We all can at anytime be faced with our lives being ended. I hate that I live in a city where I cant even have bullets in a clip to put in my gun if something like this happened to me. Unless I ask for a CHL. Its stupid I cant protect myself unless I ask for permission.

    We Citizens Should Have A Right To Be Armed!

    What kind of knife was he using that wasn't sharp enough to severely cut that first persons throat? I like how the store keeper racks his slide and fires all in one motion, sideways none the less.

    Ever cut a chicken's throat? I've done so three times in the last couple months, and it's not as easy as you think - even with a very sharp blade.

    The extra pounds that customer's carrying might have just saved him from a severed carotid artery.

    Amazing how fast the would-be killer went down - like a sack of....

    How do we find out where the BG was hit, and what kind of ammo was used?

    So "ask" for a CHL!!! How else are we supposed to weed out the addicts, felons, illegals, crazies, and wife-beaters?

    You CAN protect yourself - it's not synonymous with carrying a handgun, ya know. You could just as easily complain that you can't "protect" yourself because you have to have a tax stamp for a full-auto. There are plenty of places where citizens have to make due with nothing more than OC spray, so maybe it behooves you to be grateful for what we've got.

    Society's responsibility is to negotiate a balance between the individual's freedoms and the security of the collective. It's crowded planet, and that's the nature of modern urban life.

    I choose to stand up for my rights. If the people that are supposed to work for you pass more and stricter laws prohibiting your rights, will you finally say thats enough? Or keep compromising?
    The Will Of The People should still be the highest law in this land. Wasn't that the reason we are here? To live in a country that is For the People by the People?

    Actually I believe the CHL laws ARE a compromise...in our direction. Prior to, I couldn't 'legally' carry at all. Eventually, other states may go the way of Arizona and get rid of the CHL requirement as well.

    A big thumbs up for the store owner!

    The first shot didnt look like it hit the perp at all. It seemed to have just smashed into the display right above the customer who was laying down. 1.58 mark top right corner, you'll see what i mean.

    Thanks for the video link. The bad guy got what he deserved! I am behind the good guy with the gun 100%.

    If a bad guy/girl pulls a gun/weapon on someone like that, they should know it may cost them their life.

    GREAT JOB! Hopefully one less bad guy. If not, I hope he learned a valuable lesson. :bash:

    There should be NO compromise to a constitutional right. Any and all compromise is illegal.

    The attacker was wearing an orange shirt. The guy in the brown shirt was trying to stop the attacker and help the clerk. Then the attacker went after the helper (brown shirt) and the clerk shot at the attacker (orange shirt) and the helper (brown shirt) ran out the door (not shot).

    got it? :thumbup:

    that exist now don't stop the felons, crazies, wife beaters, minors and illegals from carrying now. Why do you think more laws will do any good?

    BTW: no such thing as an "ex-felon", once a felon always a felon!!

    Dogs are not mentioned in the Constitution, having arms to protect onself, family and society IS.
