Success is relative, we don't know what would happen if we'd do 50 things different. Yes he lived. It will definitely be success to his lawyer.

Now if I put my socialist progressive hat on ... Totally wrong, you have a job and $, it is OK for the person with an unallocated job to take your $, just hand it over. It is more efficient than having the government take it and redistribute. Anyway, I'm sure you got your $ by taking advantage of the poor. The fact that you even have a gun is evidence you have excessive $. You should go to jail and the the gun should be melted to may needles for a free drug needle program. What were you doing at a Jack In The Box that time of day anyway?

The concealed carrier now has to worry about how the DA will react and decide. Hopefully, the DA is not anti gun.

GEEEZZZ!
I can't believe this gun toting , war mongering, violence inspired shot this guy just because he was threating him with a large knife!
and Just as this guy was in the process of turning his life around too!
I bet he was stealing money to pay for college classes this fall.
I wonder IF I could volunteer to sit on the jury for them?
Please!
lets get serious here, Victim or death VS self protection.

My mother lives in Bend, OR. I'll have to give her a call and see what the scuttlebutt is. She says that the Benders HATE any new folks who move into town from out of state (she retired there many years ago) but they sure seem to like their new roads, bridges, and schools, that the taxes provide. The place is VERY leftist and progressive.

He didn't want money. He mistook the shooter for a cop and wanted to kill him, according to the story.
Oh yes, the same cops that are supposed to protect us when seconds count have been under attack by some of our politicians and public opinion makers. Same answer, it is OK to go after cops in our new world order.

So how do you mistake a plain clothes person for a cop? Guess you have many run ins with cops? Play stupid games, win stupid prizes.

I drive a white 2014 Dodge Charger. With all the cops that have been ambushed in their cars what I'm driving causes my situational awareness to stay on high.

All the Best,

So good guy lived, bad guy was stopped. Unfortunate that the scum of society survive these kinds of encounters, but still a relatively happy ending. Hopefully the Lawfully Armed Citizen doesn't have to fear repercussions from the "Justice (for criminals) System".

There you go, now you're getting it. It isn't YOUR money/property just because you work for it. It all belongs to the .gov and you should gladly give it up or have it taken by force by the "oppressed". :rolleyes:

You can bet that the DA will look for any possible reason, no matter how flimsy, to go after the shooter. He may work on the angle that the attacker was not a threat after the first shot, therefore any followup shots were unnecessary. It may work out that the shooter will be in more trouble than the attacker. I can tell you that the DA does NOT want me on the jury in this case if it goes to trial.

I always thought a good defense in instances like this would be videos of how the police react to being attacked with a deadly weapon. I've never seen an instance where an officer simply fired a single shot and stopped. Usually by the time the attacker hits the ground, the officer is putting in the second magazine and racking the slide.

True !
but then the civilian would need to only make like 10-15% of his shots land on target IF he was trying to do a comparison to police shootings!!!
opps!
did I really say that?
