A tragic price

Special to SEGAZINE

A 19-year-old walks into a Waffle House at 1 a.m., draws a gun and commands patrons to the floor while his 29-year-old accomplice stands by menacingly.

A 23-year-old diner sitting at the counter refuses to comply. He draws a legally concealed pistol and shoots the teen, killing him almost instantly while the accomplice flees.

If you are the deceased 19-year-old armed robber’s cousin, your natural reaction would be to:

A: Express a mix of shock, horror and shame that your cousin’s senseless actions not only led to his untimely death but jeopardized the lives of innocent people.

B: Express outrage that laws enabled the would-be victim to carry a concealed weapon and justifiably use it to defend himself and other patrons?
