OH: Robbers  shot in shootout with  off-duty police officer: "According to Cleveland Police, three males approached Officer Dwayne Borders, 45, and attempted to rob him. During the robbery, one of the males pulled out a gun, and that's when Officer Borders grabbed his weapon and both parties began shooting at each other.  Officer Borders was shot in the torso, one suspect was shot in the abdomen and the second suspect was shot in the leg. The third suspect fled the scene uninjured.  Officer Borders tried to drive himself to the hospital, but was pulled over for speeding. The traffic officer then rushed Officer Borders to MetroHealth Medical Center where he was treated and later released.  The suspects drove to MetroHealth Medical Center where the dropped off the male with a gunshot wound to the abdomen. The two remaining male suspects fled the hospital area on foot."

OK:  Stupid  woman (above) Gets Tasered By Restaurant Employee: "It happened at the Subway near 41st and 129th East Avenue. Police say 25-year-old Lorna Hampton came in armed with what appeared to be a black pistol demanding money. Officers say she went behind the counter with employees, who backed away.   Police say as Hampton began to open the register and take money out, a male employee used a taser on her. Hampton fell to the floor and the employee did not allow her to move. The employee left the prongs attached to the suspect just in case she tried to get up and waited for police to arrive. Police say the weapon used turned out to be a BB gun.  Hampton was booked into the Tulsa County Jail on a complaint of robbery with a firearm as well as child endangerment. Police say Hampton's vehicle was located across the street and her two children, ages two and five, were inside."

UT: Gun stops crazy knife attack:  "An attacker bought the knife inside a local market in Salt Lake City, UT, then stabbed one man in the side of the head and another person in the stomach. The attack took place in the market parking lot. A bystander with a concealed carry permit witnessed the attack and stepped in to keep it from escalating. The bystander was suspicious of what might be going on, and when he saw the stabbing, he just drew his pistol and challenged the individual, which caused the attacker to lie down on the ground. By the time police officers arrived on the scene, the attacker was subdued and is now in custody.  The knife wielding man seriously injured two people."

An armed society is truly a polite society:  "I can think of no reason for not carrying guns openly. In fact, there are only seven states and the District of Columbia that continue to infringe on the Second Amendment by not allowing open carry. Fourteen states allow open carry with a license along with 29 states that allow unlicensed open carry, including four states -- Arizona, Arkansas, Vermont, and Wyoming -- which require no permits for carrying openly or concealed. If open carry were a big problem, wouldn't some of these states repeal these laws instead of trending toward open carry in more states?"
