WOW, what a little urination competition between you two. To renojim: the unfortunate victim in Las Vegas failed to follow one of the prime rules of armed engagements; Don't assume an assailant is solo-know what surrounds you and don't get target fixation. He failed to assess what was around him and did not take a defensible position if he allowed the wife to come up from behind him and kill him. If you choose to be an armed American you have to realize it does come with risks. It still doesn't change the fact that the statistics clearly show armed Americans stop crime far more often than becoming victims to the situation.

Is that where your bunker is, filled with spam, so the day when the Black Master of the Universe comes to get you and your guns, you can go to it and listen to Rush Limbaugh all day while you curse the chemtrails in the sky.....

@Californiajim, I was a Small Arms Expert in the Military, I carry a small automatic. Don't need a large firearm when you know how to shoot. And my only trailer I use for camping, you know like in the mountains?

A Sun Valley trailer passed down through generations does not make you a native Sierra

@Sierra so to be from Reno you must be a racist coward who needs to possess a large firearm to make up for smaller things....

Hey RenoJim, not everyone dies from a gunshot wound, baseball bat, fireplace poker or candlestick. The only one in danger was the guy with the machete if He runs into the right guy at the wrong place! And I guarantee you are NOT a long time Reno resident! You using the name Reno is a total insult to us that are natives. It is impossible to live in Reno your whole life and be as liberal and misinformed as you are! HA! TRANSPLANT.
