She did a great job, but Obama is way over the top with this race crap.

I agree with you but one thing to think about - the woman had to be beyond thrilled that the POTUS called her. She was incredible.

She did a wonderful job, but Obama is using her as a pawn.

The ordeal would have ended at lot sooner if she had a gun to kill the evildoer. Talk...talk...talk wastes time. A bullet gets the job done quickly.

“The thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. Would you rather have your 911 call bring a good guy with a gun from a mile away or a minute away?"

Amen, Wayne! Well said.

Why do I carry a gun?
Because a cop with a gun won’t fit in my pocket.

Good one!

I'm into my 70s now and a gun makes me feel safe when I have to go into thugland like the VA Hospital down in South Dallas. Which reminds me: why did they have to put it there of all places. Good patriots from wars past are surrounded by a jungle.

I decided to do the same thing in my mid 40’s when I realized going toe to toe with 4, 20 somethin good old boys did not have the odds it once did.

Well, you can always tell when you are getting tired. The headlines tend to get all fuzzy.

I read the headline to mean that the lady had an Obama phone.

Good night. :D

Good old boys? Now that's an interesting twist on Amish. :-)

In reality, when I see a bunch of actual good old boys, it makes me feel pretty safe. It's the Trademark Martin types that me double check my gun is ready at a moment's notice.

I’m so tired of losin’, not enough to do ...

And I’ve given up hope for the afternoon soaps
And a bottle of cold brew,
Too much time on my hands

Well I’ll just call this peon, make her day.
I’m a hell of a guy. One ringy dingy ....

Well I see it begins. I told someone earlier tonight that while this woman did a brave, decent and good thing, she will be used by the left for their twisted purposes
#1 It will be harped on endlessly that the gunman was "talked" into surrender and so therefore no one needs guns, ever.. so on and so forth.
#2 The woman will be held up as an example of the majority of blacks, she will be used to try and convey that she is typical, it will be asserted that the recent assaults and murders by blacks of whites is not common; that they are all just hardworking decent folks, these stories of attacks by black thugs are just made up stories by racists etc.
Yes she did a good thing, the right thing, a brave thing and the left, scum that they are will use it for very wrong reasons.

screw obama. i’ll give the lady kudos for keeping calm and actually talking the guy into putting his guns down. course what do you have to lose in that situation, when you’re forced to work in a gun-free - ie victim fish barrel - zone?

Hey, just because they had prison sex doesn’t mean they’re gay.

Not at ALL!

Barry is giving a speech on bisexuality tomorrow.

She did a remarkable job, but I bet she would have been more comfortable with backup.

Barry is going to use this as an example why we don’t need guns.

You nailed my exact thoughts.

She is being used as a pawn on two fronts.

Guns and race.

Did she vote for him?

I’m guessing yes because Obama’s handlers would most likely have screened her.

What that woman did was commendable. Personally, I would not have any interest in receiving such a commendation from Obama even if he is the sitting president.

Well, unlike the economy he will be speaking on a topic that he knows intimately.
