BlankMaybe I'm wrong, but I haven't heard this INSPIRATIONAL story being
reported like it SHOULD.

Ask your Democrat friends where they stand on this. Ask them if they defend
this man's natural-born and 2nd Amendment right to pump hot lead into TWO of
society's human roaches to put them permanently out of our miseries.

This is a right that, unfortunately, many in the extreme left of the
Democratic Party want to curtail severely. They don't care that gun control
only makes victims out of would-be heroes like Mr. Lovell.

This TRUE hero didn't cry like a wimp and call 9-1-1 "Dial-A-Prayer". He
didn't wait around like a frightening sheep and run to the police. He took
matters into his own hands in the split seconds he had to take action.
There should be a small parade to celebrate this man's quick thinking.

I defend the ENTIRE Constitution, folks. If you're a Democrat who doesn't,
please don't send me any posts about how Republicans are violating the
Constitution since your own views are no different for your own "pet" issues
either. I loathe hypocrisy.

If you are one of these scoff-Constitutionists, also consider skipping the
4th of July celebration coming up. You see, that's the day that you're
supposedly celebrating the day that fed-up Americans took up rifles to
slaughter their government oppressors after they first tried redressing
their grievances peacefully. Indeed, they must have been one of the
examples in JFK's mind when he said,

"Those who make peaceful change impossible make violent revolution
You wouldn't want to contradict your views by attending a pro-gun holiday,
would you? You ARE philosophically consistent, right?

Customer who police say shot Plantation robbers a "Clint Eastwood-type,"
friend says

PLANTATION -- One gunman is dead and another is in critical condition
after they tried to rob a sandwich store and were shot by an armed customer
Wednesday night, authorities said.

Donicio Arrindell, 22, of North Lauderdale, and Fredrick Gadson, 21,
of Fort Lauderdale, entered a Subway restaurant at 1949 N. Pine Island Rd.
and demanded money at gunpoint about 11:17 p.m., said Detective Robert
Rettig, a police spokesman.

They then attempted to rob the lone customer, John Lovell, 71, of
Plantation, by forcing him into the restroom, but Lovell, who was legally
armed, pulled his gun and fired, police said.

Arrindell collapsed at the scene, while a police K9 unit found Gadson
hiding in a hedge in front of a nearby bank at the Jacaranda Square shopping
center, officials said.

Both men were taken to Broward General Medical Center, where Arrindell

Gadson was in critical but stable condition on Thursday, investigators

Police said Lovell appeared to have shot in self-defense.

A man who said he was a friend of Lovell's described him as a "quiet
Clint Eastwood-type you don't want to mess with."

"They just happened to pick on the wrong guy at the wrong time," said
Wesley White of Yulee in north Florida. White said he's known Lovell for 19

Lovell is a former Marine who was a member of the helicopter detail
that transported Presidents Kennedy and Johnson, White said. He also was a
former Pan Am and Delta airline pilot who worked out regularly and was in
good condition, White said.

"He's also one heck of a shot," White, 50, said.

Lovell has no family or children and is retired, White said.

No one answered the door at Lovell's two-story townhome Thursday, and
attempts to reach him by phone were unsuccessful. Reporters and TV cameras
were camped out in front of the residence hoping for an interview.

Charges are pending against the surviving suspect, Rettig said. Lovell
is not expected to be charged, the spokesman said.

Police have found a handgun used by one of the suspects, Rettig said.
