A fatal shooting at an Albuquerque Wal-Mart last week was New Mexico's first by someone with a concealed-carry gun permit, authorities said.
Apparently a man with a permit to carry a concealed weapon saw a lady being stabbed behind the counter, took out his gun, and shot the attacker to death. It seems to me that this saves everyone a lot of time and money. No court case, no lawyers, no money spent on jail. It seems that since jan.2004, only sane people have been given the permits because there haven't been any other shootings since the law permitting permits came into effect.
I'm still a little unsure as to whether it is a good idea to have people with guns around, even though I realize that the shooter probably saved the woman's life.
