The latest from the Coalition to Stop Gun
Rights Violence is a beautiful double whammy.
A felon goes into a Kroger Supermarket, threatens a female employee with deadly force and ends up being shot and killed by the store manager. So far it has not been released if the felon had a gun, but if the victims had a reasonable fear of death or great bodily harm, the use of deadly force in self defense is legal. This is long established law. If the criminal had a real gun, toy gun or a piece of wood has no meaning whatsoever. So the CSGV trying to hint that the felon is somehow less criminal and therefore undeserving of his faith is not honest.
What CSGV considers “illegal” is the fact that the Store Manager had the gun with him in the store against company policy, not Indiana Law. Now, unless I woke up in another world, company policy is not the law in any state of the Union. One has to wonder what kind of flavor of Idiot juice Ladd had for breakfast this morning when stating such stupidity.
The store manager will probably be fired for violating corporate policy but I pretty much doubt he will be arrested for bringing the gun to work since not such law exists. Even the most twisted District Attorney would have a hell of a time time trying to convict somebody for a crime that does not exist while defending himself an others.
But In Ladd Land, an innocent man (convicted for armed robbery in 2009) died and a criminal with a concealed weapon permit walks free.
