    I notice the headline said nothing about the man defending himself with a gun, only that the man was "subdued".
    G-d forbid the public should see guns used for something positive.

    Of course not. That would not fit their agenda.

    At least one television news broadcast mentioned that the victim had a gun. Can't keep up with my wife's channel switching so don't know whether it was repeated later on the same channel or another.

    The original Portland PD email lacked any and all information about the armed citizen. Which leads me to believe that he probably was legally carrying with a permit, and the that the lack of information was on purpose to push an agenda.

    Gotta love the idiotic comment from an anti gun person in the KATU comments on their story ---
    They'll try to defend their position even with stupidity.

    This is what I saw on my iphone new 12 app

    Police: Gun-wielding man stops carjacker outside Elmer's
    So I emailed them Basically saying really that's the way you have to phrase it
    You couldn't say man legally carrying concealed pistol stops man wielding a knife
    Told them how sick I am getting that the new Portrays gun owners that are legally doing it has the bad guys or gun wielding Like it's some wild West drama movie or something.

    The media & disarm citizens to victims "agenda" crowd like that there are no statistics, data or even news stories of the good stopping or disrupting crimes or violence, whether protecting self or interrupting a mall shooter. The truth is inconvenient to their agenda.
