    "Find out where authorities are investigating"......what does that mean, have they gone out of state, are they at the store, the man's home? Duh!

    It seems that everyone has figured this terrible act out very quickly,, or maybe not... why don't you simply extend the kin your regrets and let the Sheriff's Dept. do their jobs before deciding what happened.

    Too bad the owner didn't have and use a gun to protect himself from the thug. Anti-gunners just don't get it.

    This is why we have CCW laws. The solution to armed robbery is a dead robber.

    prayers to the family. I truly am sorry for their loss. now to media; Why pick on guns? the gun is not what kills. It is the idiot using the gun to commit a CRIME. I like the idea of media braodcasting the execution or put them in a ring to fight for their life 9like gladiators). Better yet, let us go back to public hangings on the courthouse lawn. Bet after a couple of those the shootings and robberies and rapes and all other crimes would decrease. Have pity on the victim and their family not the one committing the crime.

    Instead of news media trying to blame guns for crime, why not blame the criminal? I think the news media should pursue rights to broadcast live at executions so the next POTENTIAL criminal will know what awaits him. I have always said that if they would take the cons on death row and make gladiators out of them, then let them fight at major arenas around the country,charge admission and broadcast it on pay per view, they could 1, save having to execute them 2, help offset the cost of trials and prison upkeep, and 3, let potential criminals know what is in store for them if they commit a capital offense. Why is this so far fetched? The convicts are already fighting and killing each other every time they get the oppurtunity.

    At Work - It is called terrorism by media. The media gets more rating and more viewers if they hold us in suspense. The picture of the gun is supposed to automatically trigger our senses and fears. As americans we love that kind of stuff. My thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of the deceased. May the wrath of God converge on the killer(s)!

    Why does the antigun news media put the picture of a pistol in the story when they don't know if the victim was shot, stabbed or choked to death? Looks like they just want to make people think that guns are the problem.
