Intended crime victims shoot, kill attackers in Detroit

Two Detroiters targeted by attackers shot and killed those attackers in separate incidents Saturday.

It was shortly after midnight when two men approached a woman in the driveway of her home on Abbington Street on Detroit's west side, and attempted to carjack her.

The woman, who has a permit to carry, pulled out a gun and fired several shots at the men. One of her would-be carjackers was killed.

Neighbor Wala Alshibil said incidents like this make him think about having a gun for protection.

"I'm not a big fan of guns but to protect yourself, if you have to get one, get one," Alshibil said.

Varnita Owagbemi, who also lives in the neighborhood, agrees.

"I would definitely be getting a license to protect myself," Owagbemi said.

This is the problem. You shouldn't need a license to protect yourself. Natural Law predates this nation.

What a funny construction of a sentence.

Yup. Any man too dangerous to own a gun is a man too dangerous to walk the street.

If you lock up dangerous people and keep them locked up, you won’t have to collect the names of law abiding citizens through gun registration.

Better a 3rd world Dodge city than a modern NY where you’ll be arrested and charged for defending yourself.

That’s 5 defensive shootings in a week that I know of in Detroit.

Cities have always been violent places. Just look at the bible.

One of my favorite and probably false Ty Cobb stories is about him beating a man to death in the street after the guy tried to rob him.

That's actually a true story. Cobb admitted it to his biographer in the last couple years of his life.

Imagine what would have happened had the intended victims called the cops instead of pulled their guns.

Police are actually responding to calls in Detroit these days but even in the best of times they can only respond too late.

Better late than..., well, maybe not.

That’s good to hear. Detroit police have a tough job that I wouldn’t want.

Sadly, not happening here in California. Not only are there tougher anti-gun ownership laws. But Gov Moonbeam Jerry Brown granted parole to over 1400 lifers, most in for murder and violent crime. Other governors repeatedly denied parole to murderers, but hey, gun registration in Brown's mind will cut down murders. Stupid democrat libs.

Jenny Granholm had a deal with Schwarzenegger to ship prison inmates here so union guards wouldn’t be laid off. She had a similar deal with fast Eddie Rendell.
