3points to make here:
A shopper licensed to carry a firearm shot and wounded a 17-year-old boy who allegedly tried to rob him at gunpoint in the parking lot of the Wal-Mart store in East Stroudsburg early this morning.
notice that they made no effort to identify the boy as the "assailent", or any other such term as they would use in a case that would reflect negatively on our RTKBA
Both weapons have been recovered, but Parrish said the evidence is still being processed to determine how many shots were fired from each weapon.
again, notice the language used as to make it appear that Mr. Eastman was less than honorable in this incident.
Jacques was treated for three bullet wounds to his lower legs
it would seem to me that Mr. Eastman would benefit from a decent defensive firearms class.
Maybe I'm just being overly sensitive to the presentation of this story, but I find it ironic that even in such a seemingly clear cut case of self defense, that the media makes Mr. Eastman's actions seem somehow questionable.
One more thing.
If Walmart had been a gun free zone, this wouldn't have happened, since we all know that Gun free zones make everyone safer [/sarcasm]
