Don't bring a fake gun to a gunfight

Bend holdup victims pull real gun on fake gun
Three Bend men used a realistic but fake handgun to rob a southeast Bend duplex late Sunday night, police said - but a victim confronted them with a real shotgun, holding one suspect at gunpoint until officers arrived.

Mack said the robbers - Little, Lawrence and Lagutaris - planned to rob the victims, a man 19-year-old man and 20-year-old woman, of money, but one of the intended victims confronted them with a shotgun. Two fled and one was held at gunpoint until police arrived.

I get so sick of the "the robber got the money but no one was hurt" robbery stories on the local tv news. In this case the good guys refused to be victims.

Now that a citizen has rightfully defended himself we can hope that the government does it's job and locks these scumbags up for a good long time.

If this had happened in Podunkland, we'd be hearing about how the police would have to investigate and make sure the shotgun was legal and properly registered. So, at least for a bit, the "victim" would be on trial in the media for having the balls to own a gun.

Too bad they failed to lock up that scumbag Miglavs for the crimes of which he was convicted for a "good long time", eh?

Well said, Anon 12:05. Funny how Miglavs' own words are so easily turned back on himself, exposing his hypocrisy for all to see. (Except him, because in addition to being a flaming hypocrite, he's also a dumb-ass.)

I don't think that "dumbass" is hyphenated...

Either way, I'd beat his ass, dumbass. I am talking about the libtards in 12:05 and 7:36. Bunch of fags.
