Letter to the editor: Shooter was a hero

Friday, June 7, 2013 - 12:01 am

The name of the man who shot and killed someone who attacked and tried to rob him is a hero. I hope he had a permit. It is time that bad people are taught a lesson. My respect goes out to you.

The second robber was not shot. People scream “gun control,” while robbers and other criminals are armed. People need to protect themselves and use whatever means available.

We live in a society that protects the criminals. We are at their mercy.
