    This is where we stand since the government dissarmed law abiding citizens. Crime has not dissapeared, in fact it has risen dramaticly. Guns or no guns, anything will do.

    AFTER four robberies in seven years, David Butler-Fleming wasn't going to take it any more - not even from two axe-wielding bandits.

    The Blue Mountains shopkeeper and his son Luke yesterday drove robbers from his Warrimoo General Store and Post Office as they tried to hold it up at 6am.

    "[The first masked-wearing robber] was telling me to 'get on the floor' and I thought 'oh no, not again'," Mr Butler-Fleming said yesterday.

    Mr Butler-Fleming yelled to his 21-year-old son and ran into the back office as the thief gave chase.

    "Then I just went for him, I just ripped the tomahawk out of his hand and then Luke, who's an A-grade footy player, did this almighty crash tackle and brought all the shelving down."

    Mr Butler-Fleming wrestled the axe free and chased the thief from the store, throwing it at him and hitting him, and scaring off the second bandit as well.
    When a criminal invades your home and has a gun and is trying to kill you, it would be reasonable to shoot back with your own gun.

    My Definition of Gun Control: The idea that dozens of people found dead in the Broadway Café, Tasmania, and many also seriously wounded, all while waiting for police, who were called to show up and protect them, is somehow morally superior to having several armed and therefore alive civilian's explaining to police how the attacker got that fatal bullet wound.

    Good job, only mistake they made was throwing their only weapon, the axe, but I'm glad it worked out for them. Proves the point that attitude is everything. If you refuse to be a victim your chances of a good outcome are greater than if you just meekly submit to the boogerman.

    Hi Grump.

    I agree mate.


    "I just ripped the tomahawk out of his hand"
    .

    He ripped the axe out of his hand, he had guts and was determined.


    "A righteous man falling down before the wicked is as a troubled fountain, and a corrupt spring.' (Prov. 25:26).

    When a criminal invades your home and has a gun and is trying to kill you, it would be reasonable to shoot back with your own gun.
