    A GR CPL holder. An interesting and tragic story. The stories don’t let a lot of information out about what happened, but it sounds like Glenn was defending himself.

    Folks,

    I knew this person. He was a gentle man who didn't go around picking fights. Most Michigan CPL holders know that it's best to avoid confrontation if possible. The other person picked up an object and "lunged" at him. What do they mean by "lunged"? Sounds more like an armed attack to do grave bodily harm. Granted, we don't have much info, but he actually worked for me.

    I know of no reasonable definition for lunge other than to move in and attack.


    Being as it's a gas station, there must be a video. My guess is the video will be the deliverer of justice in this case.

    The complete and utter truth can be challenged from every direction and it will always hold up. Accordingly there are few greater displays of illegitimacy than to attempt to impede free thought and communication.

    It was on a local TV station, they cut him short just as the son started his rant, I believe the FOX news at 10 on channel 17.

    Thanks,

    I'm looking through some of these boards, and some of these people are real pieces of work! They sound as if they believe we shouldn't be able to defend ourselves if attacked.
