    Local to me CCW fights back

    Hey guys on the way to work yesterday, the road I always take was blocked off by police and I later discovered that there had been a shooting around the mini mart and bank that I commonly frequent. I searched the local news paper website and came up with this. I'm glad the CCW holder is OK and I'm glad he isn't receiving any crap for his justified actions. Now hopefully some of the guys wont call me paranoid for having a CCW permit and carrying everywhere. Kinda scary, this place is literally right down the street from me.

    Glad he's ok. Shouldn't be too hard to find a car with bullet holes and shot out windows.

    Talk about your dumb crooks. What the hell were they thinking shooting at a car, that he's just going to stop for them? I've heard of ATM robberies before, but the victim was always confronted before they got back in their car.

    BTW, it's a good idea to quote the article in case the story gets archived at a different link.

    Groton town police probing shooting
    By Stephen Chupaska Published on 5/23/2009

    Groton - Police are investigating a shooting that occurred around 1 a.m. Friday in the area of Gungywamp Road and Sailfish Lane, near the entrance to the Navy Exchange Dolphin Mart and the Naval Federal Credit Union bank.

    Groton Town Police officers responded to a report of shots fired, and later found a man at the scene.

    An investigation revealed that the man, who was driving his vehicle, was confronted by two unidentified people who opened fire on him and his car.

    The man, who was armed and carried a valid pistol permit, returned fire and the suspects fled the scene in a dark-colored, American-made sedan, possibly a Buick or Oldsmobile, with shot-out windows and possible bullet holes on the passenger side.

    No injuries were reported.

    Lt. John W. Varone would not comment on the extent of the gunfire exchange.

    ”There were more than a few shots fired,” he said.

    Varone said the name of the man is not being made public.

    Police are checking area hospitals and emergency rooms for people being treated for gunshot wounds.

    Gungywamp Road was closed until 8:20 a.m.

    Charles Barnum Elementary School, located near the crime scene, opened on time.

    Anyone with information about the incident should call Groton Town Police at (860) 441-6712.

    Could happen anytime, anywhere, to anyone. Just yesterday, a guy walked into a local Applebees and shot a guy, then shot himself. The place was packed at supper time. He could have easily turned the gun on the patrons. What a world we live in. This happened in Bloomsburg, PA. We can't go around thinking it won't happen to me.

    I was talking to a buddy on the phone the other day and he mentioned that he saw that one of our friends carried when he went to buy a car because of the money he had on him. I told him id be carrying soon, and he started telling me guns are going to be banned. instead of getting into it with him. I just told him that because of that scare you cant find an in stock gun or ammo almost anywhere. and he told me "maybe people will stop getting shot then".. I was about to tell him that only people who legally obtained guns wont have them anymore and criminals still will but didnt wanna argue about it so I left it alone. I dont see how people can disregard the fact that the criminals with guns dont usually have permits, and usually didnt get it legally from the gun shop, so the ban wont stop them from getting one......
