You Say That Like It's a Bad Thing

News 14 | Guns becoming more common at work. Scary headline for a story about average working stiffs making the world safer for everyone. Could there be media bias?
Charlotte-Mecklenburg police say 54-year-old James Henry Brewer from Charlotte was shot and killed on Saturday night at a Cricket Store on Mount Holly Huntersville Road.

They believe he was shot dead by a store employee, after he tried to rob the business. . . .

This is not the first time a would-be victim turned a gun on a would-be robber. Last month, a pizza delivery person shot and killed a customer who was trying to rob him in East Charlotte.
They describe legal self-defense as vigilantism. More bias? Definitely.

To be fair, the article contains no quote from the anti-gun groups, does give the name of a local gun shop, and quotes a police officer saying that "everyone has the right to defend themselves." Maybe they just need to buy a good dictionary. (Give them feedback via email.)
