Biden:”If it only saves one life!” Normally wouldn’t two teen-aged muggers overwhelm a 70 year old?

by Skip

A 70-year-old women’s high school basketball coach shot and killed one would-be mugger and injured another while walking two players to their cars Friday night in Detroit, WXYZ-TV reported:

Police sources say the coach was walking the two girls to their cars when two men allegedly approached and one pulled out a gun and grabbed him by his chain necklace. The coach then pulled out his gun and shot both of them, according to sources.

The man who shot the attackers was 70 years old, according to police.

One of the attackers was found dead in the median on Lafayette Boulevard, and the other was taken to a local hospital, according to police sources. We’ve learned that both of the men had attended the high school, and one had been recently expelled.

Police said the coach, who has not been named, was approached by two teens who tried to rob him in the parking lot of Martin Luther King High School as he walked with two girls around 7:30 p.m, WDIV-TV reported. One of the attackers died and the other was taken to the hospital in serious condition.

Sources told WXYZ the coach was also a reserve police office with a license to carry a concealed pistol. One of the teens was also armed with a gun.

According to WDIV, both teens were students at the high school, though the one who died had recently been expelled.

Once again we see that in the hands of a law abiding citizen, a gun can equalize the “power inequality” (yeah, that’s what Progressives are always complaining about – power inequality).  Look, I’m getting older – and the only mass that is increasing is that around the middle of me.  So, would the gun confiscators would have been willing sacrifice not only this 70 year old coach but the two young gals as well?

    Sure Skip, if it saves just one life … by expending two or three others. If not for you, do it for the chilt’ren.

      Well, it is a case of choosing: the 70 year old + 2 young girls (and he is chaperoning them to their cars) or the 2 n’er-do-wells high on a case of attempted wealth-distribution. As the Knight Templar in Indiana Jones and the Holy Grail said “…chose poorly”. Decisions have consquences and I have no problem announcing two more deserving Darwin Award winners have been given their dirt naps.

      I, for one, would have considered a life gone from one of the three first enumerated a tragedy as they were simply going about their lives. The last two bent on selfishly and wolfishly deciding that they had the right to change that by force? By their own actions, nary a bad thought – decisions have consequences. Good riddance.

        More overlap of our Venn circles, Skip. What the heck is the difference between a rabid freedom luvin’ cur and a “a Conservative (with small “L” libertarian leanings) and evangelical Christian perspective” anyway?

        The false option the libtards present is that there approach of nasty gun prohibitions will magically only save lives, not lead to other deaths. They only look at one side of the ledger sheet, the left one. Some recognize that people die because bad guys have guns, stupid people have guns, crazy people have guns, but also when people don’t have guns to protect themselves. Self-help should be the first line of defense, not the last. Not surprisingly, the Attorney General from MA-MA Land has that bass ackwards.

          Well, there isn’t a Singularity moment just yet, but I do believe you are headed in my direction there, sir Dog (smirk).

          What the Libtards wish to erase is that Freedom often comes with both nose plants (recoverable) and dirt plants (non-recoverable) events. Trying to mitigate either is an act of Freedom-lessening under the guise of Plant Protection. They do not believe in Self-help, Civil Society-help; only Government-help.

          They look upon me strangely when I say that decision have consequences but Liberals wish to do exactly what they claim Big Biz does – socialize the cost of risk.

            Threes company, Bacon Boy. And it’s thicker THAN (not then) a Wendy’s frostee. You’d no that if you spent more thyme in a USA government-issue skool.
