    Although we all know the victim was armed (due to the article), I’m certain the criminal did not. Who knows what might have happened if the victim was not armed! This is ANOTHER reason why responsible gun ownership must NOT be infringed upon by the gun grabbers in Sacramento and Washington, D.C. We need to be able to defend ourselves when the time arises – and not be told what kind of guns we can do it with or how many cartridges our magazines can hold…..
