That's nice, but

Did WXYZ make a new story titled "Detroit Police Chief reacts to video of mom firing at intruders" regarding the reaction "She did the right thing"? I mean, don't get me wrong, I consider it newsworthy. But to have an 11 word title to a news article about five words?? I wish they had more actual words from the police chief himself.

Michael Nystrom's fists can punch through FUD.

Nice

She handled this situation perfectly. Don't shoot anyone until you have to. Seems like she gave them some warning shots to get 'em out. :)

Hmmm, so guns protect.

Nice assault rifle. Hopefully, their weapon was not confiscated as evidence for a trial that will occur at least a year from now.

video wouldn't work for me

but I found it on youtube:

Assault Rifle?

While I don't mind some good PR for what the news report refers to as a "assault rifle," I'd still love to hear the definition they're using categorize these weapons.

As far as I can tell, that looks like a HiPoint carbine. It has a magazine capacity of 9-10 and only shoots pistol cartridges.

Great, cheap home defense gun but an assault rifle it is not (unless you live in Connecticut or New York). ...unless they are not describing the actual specifications of the firearm but the purpose it was used for. I honestly don't think they even know anymore.

No, they actually have no idea

And didn't have a clue when they (and the lobbyists) were drawing the laws up in the first place.

Complete and utter ignorance and incompetence in passing illegal regulations at its finest.

Great, your post may have

Great, your post may have just cost me $350...

He needs to sell it by tomorrow and I just got my tax money, this is going to be a tough call.
