    I just listened to the podcast “mom pulls a gun in fight over school supplies.” You started the story by mentioning that the headline from the liberal media was misleading, and you were right. You then told the story about how a women pulled her firearm because her daughter was being beaten by two other women over the school supplies. After the story you sided with; it was the wrong decision. You stated that maybe the mother should have more training, or learn to fight because her daughter was not in a life threatening situation. My mother has a concealed carry permit, but she is 82 years old. She is not going to take a class in MMA to learn how to put somebody in a arm bar. So in this case should she just stand there and wait for her daughter to get boot stomped in the head by these two other women before she should do something?
    In the story’s like these you really need to play devils advocate. Because with your credentials you would be considered a professional, and the statement you made about this women by saying she was wrong could be used against her. When maybe after all the facts she was justified.
