"yelling at each other" - hmm - sounds like DEADLY FORCE is necessary - I'll get my gun.
Am I the only one who sees a problem here? Why arw deadly weapons necessary to "solve" an argument? I might suggest calling the police, but thae are trigger-happy too. WWJD? - in this land of ALLEGED Christians, why can't anyone ACT in a Christ-like mannor? What Would Jesus Do? Is Jesus armed with deadly weapons? CONCERNED? neighbor?

WWJMB do? (i.e. John Moses Browning).

We don't know the details. The fight "escalated" and there was a "physical altercation".

I think that if people were more involved in their communities crime might abate somewhat. Remember the Good Samaritan? Sometimes they have guns.

You ever figure how many people yell at each other every day? A gun just makes it morelikely to escalate the problem.

The gun owner needs to go to jail. He should have just called the police.

read the article again, both men were treated at the hospital. maybe the armed citizen was justified in protecting himself.
