Two SD shootings in the KC area in one day - Media surprisingly neutral

First, a shopkeeper shot at two robbers, killing one:

Of interest, no comments were made about how bad it is for private citizens to use a gun; one resident commented to the reporter that [the police] really need to clean up the area, as it's getting to be pretty bad.

Then, a car's driver may have shot a carjacker, still under investigation:

My point with regard to both being that the Kansas City Star is not typically a pro-gun paper. Yet in both these articles, not a peep was said about the actions of the gun owners. No calls for greater gun control were made by reporters, editors, or Topix respondents. This is a breath of fresh air.
