Detroit police are investigating whether a group of AK-47 wielding robbers who hit two gas stations Wednesday morning are responsible for several similar crimes that have recently occurred across the city.

Sam Adbullah was manning the till at the BP gas station on 7 Mile near I-75 around 4 a.m. when he looked up at the security camera.

“I had the camera turned on in the back. Usually I don’t, but tonight for some reason I had it on the back,” Adbullah told WWJ’s Ron Dewey.

Adbullah said he saw a vehicle drive up and four men exit the car with assault rifles drawn.

Avoid that city like plague! Thank God we did two years ago while on our family trip. They've got nothing to see there...except chalk drawings of the victims.

"This gun based society in the US is just sick."

============================================================
I heard the (True) story about the neighbor of an "anti gun" person who put up a sign with a directional arrow pointing to the neighbors home advising all passers by that this person did NOT like guns nor that he would ever one. Is this a sign that YOU might like to have someone post referring to your home?"

...Wow, that sounded like a threat. Are you wielding a threat in this forum to compensate for something?

Dr. Gary Kleck, a criminologist here at FSU, researched and wrote a book about whether or not it was effective having laws which restricted gun ownership. Interested in any of his conclusions? Guns are used THREE times more often to PREVENT a crime than in the commission of a crime.

FYI, Dr. Kleck is and has been a liberal, but was honest enough to call it like it is and tell the truth. I recommend this book to any who wants to know the truth about gun control laws

With so many of these type of thugs running around, not just in Detroit, is all the more reason to justify gun ownership. The Police can not be everywhere all the time

If you were a crook and you had a choice between robbing the house with the crazy old cuke with a gun or his neighbor that is a gun hater, witch would you pick to rob.

>Were they exercising their 2nd Amendment rights?<

Like the rest of the bill of rights, the idea is that a person's rights stop where another's begins. Use a gun in a crime and you've exceeded your right.

But very likely: They were confident that the attendant would not be exercising his first amendment rights, especially if Detroit has tight gun laws as reported. Like the first amendment, gun laws are only as effective as folks willingness to abide by them and typically the only predictable result of gun laws is that folks in need of self defense must resort to crime.

What I want to know (when these guys are caught), is were the guns registered? 99% of all crimes with weapons are done with illegal ones. No new laws will make any difference with the lawbreakers. Gun control laws only hurt law abiding citizens who want to protect themselves.
