Shop keeper kills robber wielding a 6-inch hunting knife

From the Philadelphia Inquirer:
. . . Police did not release the 46-year-old shopkeeper's name, but sources identified her as Sharon Doyle, who worked as a police officer in Philadelphia, Lower Makefield, and Warminster Township. She also served as a Secret Service agent from 2002 to 2004, according to a resume posted online.
She was behind the counter of Stan's Health Foods, on the 7100 block of Frankford Avenue in Mayfair, just after 5 p.m. when a 47-year-old man walked in and brandished a 6-inch hunting knife, said Philadelphia Inspector Scott Small.
"No other employees, no customers," Small said. "Just her and the robbery suspect."
The man went behind the counter and threw the cash register on the floor to break it, Small said, then began collecting the money scattered on the floor. He then put the knife to the woman's chest, Small said, and she sprang into action.
She drew a gun and fired a single shot into the man's chest, Small said. The man collapsed on the floor.
When police arrived moments later, the suspect was still clutching some cash in his left hand, Small said. A knife was found nearby.
The man was pronounced dead shortly afterward at Aria Health-Torresdale Campus. . . . .

The local media in Philly had no problem telling this story. Most likely because of her résumé... she is/was a "professional".

Ahh, another poor "victim of gun violence" for Bloomberg et al to cry over.

There is a mandatory federal sentence of 5-15 years without parole for felons caught with guns.

Notice that not ONE of the gun control groups mentions this or calls for increased federal prosecutions, which run consecutively with state penalties.

90% of our murders are committed by convicted felons, most with violent histories.

Notice there isn't the SLIGHTEST effort on the part of people trying to stop "gun violence" to deal with the actual criminals.

Bloomberg, Schumer and Feinstein, along with the rest of the usual suspects HAVE to know the numbers. You'd have to have an IQ lower than your shoe-size not to after 30 years spent on the issue.

The reason they ignore it is because they don't CARE about violence. It's a citizen disarmament movement. After 40 years of this nonsense, there's no excuse no "not know."
