The headline says the bad guy had a hatchet, then the article says it was a machete, then it says it was a hatchet again.

Does this paper think those terms are interchangeable?

Don't bring a hatchet to a gun fight. Maybe this crap will go away if the news media covered every one of these positive outcomes.

Exactly. Plus, I'd like to point out that Seattle is one of the few large coastal cities that swings left, but yet allows concealed carry. Spokane and Olympia help to even things out, as far as state rules are concerned. I'm glad this guy was carrying, and was able to take care of business.

Huh. I guess Victor Crowley lives.

It would be nice to know what barrel length, caliber and bullet type were used.
