Sorry, I’ve been out of it today. Woke up in an incredible amount of pain and been down all day. Just now feeling like I might want to be up.

I am a stauch die-hard supporter of the right to keep and bear arms, a Second Amendment guy all the way. I do believe these fellas might have stepped over the line. If it were up to me, you’d carry whatever you wanted any time you wanted (with the exception of automatics, RPG’s and the like). I would even go so far as to say that I’d register my weapons if there was some guarantee that no one could ever use that information to come take my firearms away from me – it has happened before in this world.

My key point is, self-defense should never be taken from you.

But if you start endangering others you have stepped over the line. WAY over the line. And it is guys like these that give people that want to take away your rights lots of excuses to do so.

Two Men Fatally Shoot Each Other In Newark

NEWARK (CBS) ― Two men fatally shot each other after they brawled in Newark on Saturday afternoon.

The incident began around 2 p.m., said Det. Todd McClendon, a Newark police spokesman.

Police did not confirm what sparked the brawl, nor disclose the names of the combatants, but witnesses told CBS 2 the victims were a teenager nicknamed Bishop, and a 22-year-old named Jeron. They say there was a fight over turf, and may have involved a third man who fled in a car. One of the weapons used was an uzi, a type of submachine gun.

“I know both of them both of them,” said Newark Resident Amani Shakur. Both are generally good guys. I don’t know what happened.”

McClendon said one man was pronounced dead at the scene, while the other was taken to University hospital in Newark, where he died a short time later.

There have now been 22 homicides in Newark this year, compared to 31 that had occurred by this time last year.
