The bad news is that the two perps survived. Might be REALLY bad news for the shooter, when the Crips come avenging. As to the D.A.'s comments about "this one" coming out all right; he's, of course, implying that many, if most, don't turn out all right when the victim shoots back.
I'd like for that D.A. and/or anybody else to point out cases where murder victims would be any worse off, had they been armed when attacked.
