Guns save lives

Kalamazoo man fends off attackers with handgun

OSHTEMO TOWNSHIP -- A Kalamazoo man was able to turn an attempted attack around because of his concealed weapons permit.

The Kalamazoo County Sheriff's Department says 32-year-old Brian Smith was approached by two men as he was entering his apartment on Mt. Royal Drive just before 2 a.m. Friday.

One of the suspects asked Smith for directions to Kalamazoo Valley Community College and then pulled out a revolver. Smith pulled out his revolver to defend himself and fired two shots, hitting the suspect in his left hand.

Both of the suspects fled the scene on foot. The wounded suspect was arrested a short time later while trying to get medical attention.
Michigan universities should consider lifting weapons bans

No one having guns would solve the problem just as well.

I wish he would of shot to kill. Now we are all paying for his medical bills too now becuase these people are too lazy to get a real job to make money.

Problem with that is criminals don't follow the laws. So when you make a law banning guns, only law-abiding citizens follow said law.
