Even Asking the Question is Outrageous

You're attacked, and you defend yourself - legally. This paper asks if you should be charged with a crime. Morning Poll: Should Gunmen in Beer-Robbery Shootings Have Been Criminally Charged? - Phoenix News - Valley Fever

One guy was being hit with a pipe wrench. The other was told by robbers that they were armed - that statement is a clear threat to commit mayhem. Neither of these guys were charged, because self-defense is legal.

To be fair, they seem to think that the shootings were justified, (Bully for them!) but note "we're sure, the anti-gun crowd might disagree."

Anyway, there's a poll. Go click on it if you care to share your two cents....
