    You see, college campus carry laws lead to the violent deaths of children.

    Oh wait, it did not happen on a campus, and the "child" was an adult armed robber.

    Still, something must be done, and starting with a ban on campus carry would be a good start. /sarcasm

    At least they are giving the dead guy credit blame for his attempted armed robbery.

    Correction...

    When a criminal is under 26 years of age is killed they are counted as children for statistics purposes. They are only adults if captured and charged with a crime. UNLESS!!! They are here illegally then they are released back on the streets to commit another crime.

    Some other headline about this incident said something like: "18 Year Old Killed by Football Players During Robbery." That would make anybody think the athletes were robbers and murderers. Was that headline chosen and approved by editors to make athletes (or black athletes) look bad? I don't think so, but it WAS chosen and worded that way to minimize the self-defense aspect. The media does NOT want the public thinking that guns are useful to defend yourself against criminals. That doesn't fit their agenda.

    I'll bet if the 18-year old robbery ran away without getting shot, this wouldn't even be published in the mainstream news, and if it were, they'd edit-out the fact of the would-be victims being armed. A defensive gun use (DGU) where somebody dies is harder to cover-up or bury than a DGU where the good guys win without any blood being spilled.

    So we need to shoot them if we get the opportunity?

    A short and non-illustrious crime career. Guess he'll have to try something else. Oh, wait.....
