    I was just watching the TODAY SHOW and on there they had a car that flipped over in a creek or stream with a father and three kids. People stopped and tried to get the doors and or windows open but couldn't. Water was coming in the car and fast so one man pulled his HANDGUN AND SHOT OUT A WINDOW. That permitted the men 4 I think to get the father and the three kids out. One or two of the kids had to have CPR. The can to and all went to the hospital. They are all OK and were releasted at some point.

    Guns do save lives in many ways.

    True but we should take what we can when it comes to good gun news on TV.

    Story I heard on TV said he was a off duty COP, saw the kids needed help fast and shot the window where they were not.

    Good example of why you can't take the word of journalist any more!!

    Pretty sad when you have to go to at least a dozen news services to formulate the "whole" story!

    Why couldn't he just bust the window out with the gun? In his position, I probably would have done what he did, but I believe most handguns would break out a side window. Just sayin... Mike

    When all you have is a hammer everything looks like a nail.

    The news stories I read said they did try to bust the window out but it would not break. He shot it only after attempts to break the glass failed.

    Car windows are odd ducks. Sometimes something trivial shatters the whole window, other times they take amazing punishment.
