    OCer Thwarts Robbery in NOLA.

    http://www.nola.com/crime/index.ssf/..._most-comments

    The male victim, who was carrying his own firearm in plain view in a holster around his waist, removed his weapon and fired it in the direction of the robbers.
    Michael Kennedy, the attorney for the victims, confirmed that the man was escorting a woman to her car when they were held up. He said the man owns a registered handgun that he carries legally and openly on occasion.
    Except for the attorney saying we have registered weapons here, which we don't, it's not a bad article.

    The other goofy thing is that the attorney called them "warning shots." He did the same thing in subsequent TV interviews.

    Think that "warning shots" is code speak for bad aim or lack of training.

    I'm suspicious of this story. Everyone knows that only heavily-armed SWAT teams and do-gooder legislators can stop violent crime.

    Is this man in this story even allowed to shoot back without a no-knock warrant?

    This story must be false, because the OCer wasn't "shot first" for his gun.
