    Why does this incident even rate a mention?  Do the liberals who run the MSM media really find it newsworthy that someone exercised his Second Amendment rights?  Apparently the liberals who run this blog find the incident unusual.  I wouldn’t live in a place where I couldn’t protect myself with deadly force; there never seems to be an editor around to protect you when you need one.
