America's Liberals repeat the same errors citizens of Hitler's Germany did, and, they seem totally unaware of the outcome. Our Mis-Education Department insured this ignorance; i.e. obama's Nirvana! Guns are first and foremost for personal, family and societal security, secondarily, as a hunting device to gather food for the table. Check out the 2nd Amendment.

How much easier and safer would have been this takedown of a punk in New York City if the clerk had been equipped with a hand gun rather than just a vodka bottle?  How much less of a burden to the taxpayer too, who will now have to incarcerate the criminal?

And just think of chilling effect it would have on criminals if shootings of miscreants during crimes like this were on the nightly...
