There is a right way to use a gun. There is a wrong way to use a gun.
Michael Starnes did it the right way. Monday morning, he saw a suspicious man walking around his neighbor’s home. Starnes got his gun, confronted the burglar and held him at gunpoint until Columbia County deputies arrived to make an arrest.
More good neighbors like Starnes would make the world a far safer place.
Thomas Bradford did it the wrong way. One man is dead as a result, and Bradford likely will spend the rest of his life in prison.
