    I'm sure I'll be accused of sensationalism from our resident liberals but all well. Guy get shot in the head in front of his wife as they finish their Christmas shopping.

    They found the car in Newark.

    I was a victim of a car jacking in Newark. Guy held a gun to my head and told me to get out. I did EXACTLY that. It was a rental car.

    These folks find nothing wrong with taking other people's property. They figure that they deserve it more.

    And it's the land of gun control. You can only carry if you're a criminal.

    The more law abiding citizens who carry concealed weapons and kill these idiots when they commit a crime the better. Shoot first, shoot to kill, ask questions later.

    Horrible, horrible story. Not sure why you think liberals would think this is any else. Everyday I get closer to never reading the news again.

    Seems like you want to be accused of it. It's a terrible tragedy, regardless.

    Yep, that's the tough part. Being armed might not stop such events since the motivated offender often has the element of surprise to their advantage.

    Stomach turning

    It could change the odds. Depends of course if she can get the weapon easily and make the shot. Under such trying circumstances with adrenaline, fear, confusion etc... it's not always so clear that someone could or would be able to.

    We'll never find out, at least in New Jersey because no one will ever be allowed to carry legally.

    While we have gun control, to be sure, relatively speaking ours are not all that restrictive. That said, you happen to live in one of a few states in which it is.

    Not that I have the need to carry in the Irish Rivera, but it would be nice to have the option if I god forbid had to go to Newark.

    There is never a need to go to Newark! :)

    ...well, maybe the airport, but that's different

    It probably should if we're ignoring guns.
