Is it Friday or Saturday? The headline vs. the article is conflicting on this.I believe that it's Friday. I'm rarely wrong.

Galaxy seafood on Belmont was robbed at gunpoint with patrons sitting down and eating. A YPD officer shot and killed him. Had the officer not been there, it would have been a much different outcome. Who's to say. It could have been much worse. Crime does happen everywhere.

I have my concealeed carry permit. I rarely carry a gun. But I can carry whenever I like. It's nice when businesses and restaurants have a do not carry sign in their front window as I belive they should and not posted in other various locations inside.By the time that you notice it, your already inside. That's how the law was set up I believe. To be posted at the entrance. By law, I cannot flaunt my gun. It's a concealed carry permit. Flaunting it would put me in trouble with the law. Unlike criminals who flaunt their guns at will at anyone, anytime and take your wallet and or your life. We are law abiding citizens. Your neighbors and your friends. With the hunters and gun owners in this country, we could be considered the largest malitia in the world. But because of a handful of persons, we have all this termoil going on about guns. Ban assault rifles? In 2011 in this country, over 300 persons were killed with rifles. With handguns, over 6000 were killed. I'm not sure, but I would bet my last dollar that law abiding concealled carry permit holders have an excellent record regarding having any incidents while carrying their concealed guns. There are more of us than you think. You walk by us all the time.

I can't sit here and give you all the scenarios of why the shotspotter is a good thing. There are thousands. But let me take a shot at two. One scenario, in a driveby shooting, firing multiple shots on the move in a vehicle, the police will know the direction in which the vehicle was going at the time. This may perhaps help in apprehending the suspects combined with other information. Another scenario, say you have just been robbed and shot, the perpetrator ran away.No one witnessed it, no one around. Your laying on the ground bleeding. The police recorded the shot and sends a cruiser to investigate. They find you and call an ambulance for you and maybe saves your life. Most of this monies was from a grant. I say give it some time. It has been a useful tool.
