      A man was robbed at gunpoint and two gun toting bystanders (ok, they were in a car) went after the assailant.

      The victim:
      “I don’t believe in guns,” said Dorsey. “I don’t own a gun. I’m totally at the mercy of my saviors. They obviously sent two angels to help me. These people protected me when I couldn’t protect myself.”

        Girl 'Mercilessly Slaughtered' On Family Trip

        KINGSTON, Jamaica -- A British schoolgirl visiting relatives in a rural village in northern Jamaica was fatally shot when a lone gunman opened fire on a group of family members as they gathered at a roadside shop, officials said Sunday.

        Imani Green, 8, of Balham in south London, was standing inside a clapboard grocery store and bar with Jamaican relatives Friday evening when a gunman wearing a hoodie shot the child in the head and shoulder before also shooting and wounding three adult members of her family.

          That's not possible. Jamaica has had a gun ban for almost 40 years now.

            Two Men Walk Around Portland With Assault Rifles To Advocate Gun Rights, Scaring Neighborhood

            Two Portland men attempted to raise gun rights awareness Wednesday afternoon by walking the streets with assault rifles strapped to their backs.

            Let's just say these sharpshooters were a bit off target.

              The Firearms Act of Jamaica regulates the ownership and use of firearms and ammunition. It was first passed in 1967, and has been subsequently amended. The law requires gun licenses, with a yearly registration fee of $6,000.00. There were about 65,000 licensed firearms in Jamaica in 2002, and approximately 700 licenses approved per year.[1] All crimes involving firearms are tried by a special Gun Court established in 1975.

                  Gun politics in Jamaica started to be an issue in the early 1970s, when Jamaica experienced a rise in violence associated with criminal gangs and political polarization between supporters of the People's National Party and the Jamaica Labour Party.[1] After a rash of killings of lawyers and businessmen in 1974,[2] the government of Michael Manley attempted to restore order by granting broad new law enforcement powers in the Suppression of Crime Act and the Gun Court Act.

                  The Suppression of Crime Act allowed the police and the military to work together in a novel way to disarm the people: both soldiers could seal off entire neighbourhoods and policemen could systematically search the houses inside for weapons without a warrant.[3]

                  The goal was to expedite and improve enforcement of the 1967 Firearms Act,[4] which imposed licensing requirements on ownership and possession of guns and ammunition,[5] and prohibited automatic weapons entirely.[6] Firearm licences in Jamaica require a background check, inspection and payment of a yearly fee, and can make legal gun ownership difficult for ordinary citizens.[7][8] The new judicial procedures of the Gun Court Act were designed to ensure that firearms violations would be tried quickly and harshly punished.[3]
                  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_politics_in_Jamaica

                  If you actually care, you can read about the Gun Court, too: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gun_Court

                  These draconian measures have done nothing to stop gun violence in Jamaica. In fact, Jamaica is one of the best examples of how these gun control moves only screwed law abiding people. The gangs and other criminals still assail their victims but with a lot less resistance.

                      This reminded me of this week's episode of The Big Bang Theory. Their car was stolen and Sheldon yells, at the car that's speeding away, "STEALING IS AGAINST THE LAW!!!!".

                        • DEKALB COUNTY, GA (CBS ATLANTA) -

                          A Decatur man fired his shotgun and hit a burglar who had broken into his home Thursday afternoon. It is the latest incident of homeowners protecting themselves from criminals.

                          Not only did this brave 15-year-old defend his home against 2 burglars, but also his 12-year-old sister who was in the house with him. He grabbed his father’s AR-15 and shot one of the burglars multiple times. They got away but had to go right to the hospital where the minor was arrested and the adult who was shot was flown to a different hospital.

                              • Oakland Resident Shot At While On Hold With 911

                                http://sanfrancisco.cbslocal.com/201...hold-with-911/

                                OAKLAND (CBS 5) – A resident of Oakland’s Redwood Heights section said he was shot at while waiting on hold to report the attempted daytime burglary of his neighbor’s home.

                                Ford Frazier said he was at home around 1:40 p.m. Tuesday when he saw three men across the street trying to burglarize a home. He waited on hold with 911 as the men tried to enter the home.

                                “As I was on hold for 911, they gave up…and headed back down the stairs and looked around the street again as they were looking for another target…and then headed for their car,” recalled Frazier.


                                “I’m standing here on my phone, and they’re coming across the street there, getting in the car… and then the guy took a shot at me right there…and the bullet is right in the wall over there. You can see that black mark,” he continued. “I could feel the air as the bullet went by…it was a little breeze… and then my neighbor came running out and said, ‘did you hear the gunshot?”

                                Frazier said it felt like he was on hold with 911 for 10 minutes. Not quite. Not even close.

                                “In this particular case, It wasn’t 10 minutes, it was 2.5 minutes. But 2.5 minutes can seem like a very long time
                                , we understand that,” said Oakland Police Spokesperson Johnna Watson.

                                Watson said once Frazier got through to a dispatcher, cops were sent immediately.
                                Yep, only two and a half minutes, that's not much of a hold time at all.
