[QUOTE]SAN ANTONIO - A woman is in critical condition after she was stabbed outside her child's school Tuesday morning. The attack happened around 10:00 a.m. Tuesday outside the Bonham Academy on St. Mary's Street. Teresa Barron, 38, had just dropped off her child at the school when the child's father showed up, and the two got into an argument. The child's father, 38-year-old Roberto Barron allegedly then stabbed the woman several times in the upper body and neck area. Police say a bystander who happened to be a concealed handgun license holder pulled his weapon and ordered Barron to drop the knife. Barron surrendered and was taken into custody by the bystander and a school district officer. The woman was taken to San Antonio Military Medical Center. Barron was arrested for aggravated assault, and is in jail on a $150,000 bond.[/QUOTE] [url=http://www.woai.com/mostpopular/story/Armed-bystander-stops-stabbing-outside-school/6zTYMpy8pUOeyrbElEBOTQ.cspx]Source[/url] Another case of a legal gun owner stopping a crime in progress!
the baby daddy done and gone fucked up
And nobody died, this is a great example how a responsible person is capable of ending a potentially deadly confrontation with the threat of getting the shit shot out of you, without firing a shot. If it were anyone from where i live, they would've shot the guy, leading to an unnecessary death.

Too many people see it as a licence to kill when the opportunity arises.

Im surprised the CCW guy didnt kill that guy.
Perfect example of how to utilize a CCW and diffuse a situation like that. Gun control only restricts those who actually follow the law.
oh god read as cwc (christian weston chandler)
I really hope the woman makes it through alright, that is one fucked up situation to have experienced.

Beucase quite simply, banning guns is just a bad idea, how many crimes are committed with legally owned weapons. Although I think both USA and canada need some proper regulations in licensing and such.

Guns don't have to be fired to talk serious business, case in point

This thread (story, comments, and all) is almost identical to one from last week.
[QUOTE=areolop;37476840]Im surprised the CCW guy didnt kill that guy.[/QUOTE] Why?
I like guns. It's not about the "license to kill" people seem to think we all treat them as, it isn't about the potential for destruction. It's working the action, feeling the recoil, the satisfaction of hitting a steel drum that's a kilometer away. We know that guns aren't toys. We don't treat them as such. The same reason you don't drive like an idiot, we don't shoot like one.
To be honest this looks like a situation that could have been dealt with regardless of the weapon.
But someone still got stabbed right? And still could easily have died?

Increadibly right.
I'd love to hear what the anti-gun people have to say about this one.
[QUOTE=dass;37482088]I never thought of it like that, a car can be just as dangerous as a gun, when put in the hands of an idiot. Increadibly right.[/QUOTE] Think of it this way: Every time you drive a car, you are essentially a high-speed dumpster. Every time you fire a gun, you are shooting a highly concentrated car.

However, in the UK, guns are incredibly difficult to get hold of no matter whether you attain them legally or illegally, and I like it that way. I realise that guns are too prevalent in the US to get rid of, but I would prefer to live in a society without guns because it is safer.
