Incidentally, yes, the drunken psycho who I'd never seen before DID surrender when I drew my weapon. Apparently, a board with a nail in it isn't a match for a loaded rifle.

/actually, was indirectly threatened later in the night because some drunken coont mistook me for the guy who had been ARRESTED after i intervened

Axias: Seriously, you ppl know jack shiat about the offenders. What if he was robbing the store to buy some formula for his kids? Unlikely, but YOU DONT know. Shame on you people whose first instinct is to cheer this crap on.

Sorry, but no.

No, this argument doesn't fly. It's not even intelligent. It's a "just asking questions" argument. You're trying to villify a man who was following the law when he did what he did to protect another.

It is not on the CCW, or even Law Enforcement, to determine at the time someone has a gun to someone's face, why he's doing it.

All they have to determine is that they are threatening someone's life, and that their immediate action can reduce or prevent further loss of life from the perp's actions. The relevance and reason behind them are irrelevant. All that matters at that point is that he knows someone has a gun to someone else's face, and any reasonable man can interpret that as justification to shoot someone.

Axias: Boo for just shooting anyone dead for any crime. Fark that. not cool. Guess what, pulling a gun and a loud voice on someone without a gun coulda handled that situation fine. Now some mom is crying someonwhere cuz her kid robbed a dollar store like a dummy and died.

You know how I know you've been watching too many old cop movies?

Asking someone who's a good shot at a moving target, but someone who understands people and stats to a degree... yes. I will.

YMMV.

Of course, do people realize anymore that there are methods of defense other than guns?


Please, tell us what there is that is more effective?

A smart person would ask:

"If I try to rob a store with a weapon,can I get my ass killed?"

....this is THE question every single criminal is NOW asking in the neighborhood of that Dollar General.

I agree, there are better ways to rob people.

What the fark are you talking about? Why aren't the employees of that store armed? Why are aren't ALL employees EVERYWHERE armed?

Real ballz is being the 'good guy' and doing all the stuff the good guys do.

Civilised society doesn't commit armed robbery. The use of deadly force in a situation not deemed a "forcible fealony" i.e. rape, assault with a deadly weapon, armed robbery, carries stiff penalties when the justice system works as intended. "Real ballz" is choosing an option other than armed robbery to feed your children, even if it means allowing yourself to starve so they may live.


As one more addition to the "what if" situation you built, if he was trying to rob the store to feed his children, why wouldn't he sell his pistol first?

Generally, what we call "mass shootings" occur in places where only unlawful gun possession would have a gun there. At least the large and 'successful' shootings such as John Holmes in Colorado tend to be.

Which tends to automatically weed out the people being looked for, while at the same time increase the effectiveness of the shootings so they are heard about, which are the ones that are counter evidence to the sought info.

In cases where an armed citizen intervenes, it's "one person shot, one person wounded" or "one wounded" and doesn't make big news. What would have happened given time and freedom to act is never on the radar, because it didn't happen, because someone intervened, which then keeps the info out of the general nationwide MSM eye.

Anyone expecting "to hear" about a stopped shooting by normal media input is stupid. Dig for it, and you'll find it.

Considering guns are universally available as legal purchases in Switzerland, approaching the same level - if not exceeding - of ownership as the per person gun ownership of the United States - culture is definitely a factor.

But you're trying to say the exact same culture as the United States exists in Switzerland.

Pribar: Incorrect, the weapons I referred to is their issued weapon, every male who is physically and mentally fit and is between the ages of 20 and 30 is part of the militia and is issued with a Sig 550 that they keep at home while they are in the militia, it is a true assault weapon, when they leave military service they can keep the rifle but it has the select fire option removed


My mistake. There are pro gunners here that make it sound like you get issued a true assault rifle for life in Switzerland, and that every single person has one. I knew that wasn't right, but didn't know how things actually worked. I'd rather err on the side of caution than spread misinformation. Or rather, misinformation thats incorrectly favorable to a side I agree with.

Taking down a store clerk with a knife, your neighbor with a rock, or your spouse with your bear hands is not so impossible, so if the root cause leading to these acts of violence is not removed, the violence will still occur with or without a firearm, with surprisingly similar end results.

I demand the right, in that case, to walk around with a concealed compound bow, like my forefathers before me in Europe.

If it is good enough to take down a buck, then by god, it's good enough to put a hole in some punk trying to steal my wallet.


Dude, if you can conceal a compound bow, then by God, I say go for it. In fact, I'd love to see the face of some thug when you go all Hawkeye on him.

Where am i saying that? I don't mean to give the impression that im saying that at all.

Im trying to argue that I believe the difference in crime is due to the strength of swiss institutions and the society they've built which keeps people from become the sort of desperate people who seem to commit a good portion of the gun crime in the US. Admittedly, we could be arguing semantics; perhaps you'd define Swiss employment/healthcare/social service institutions as part of their "culture". I don't; to me culture is more intangible.

What facts are made up? The more complete story limked in the thread explained that both robbers were armed with handguns, one had a clerk at gunpoint, and none of the employees were hurt. Pretty simple. And every single cop I personally know--at least 15--would undoubtedly say that a civilian taking on two robbers armed with handguns is not the best choice, especially of there are other lives at stake.

Most robbers, even those who present weapons, don't use them, even when denied the goods for which they asked.


They have used the weapon, maybe not to kill you, but as a tool to threaten you with death.

The simple math here is this - if you commit violence upon another for your own sake as a means to "get ahead" you become a selfish prick. That attitude becomes self empowering and makes you want to empower yourself more. It's escalation.

Yes, you can argue getting your damn fool head blown off for robbing someone is a bit extreme - or you can argue for the more simple and logical fact that if more people took a stand and we had more people willing to try to prevent damn fools from trying to rob everything from toys'r'us to jewelry stores constantly there wouldn't be a as much of a need for an self policing armed populace..

However, because this is, you know, reality we as a culture don't have a way to stop people from using guns we should instead try to promote the people who legally and rightfully can carry to carry and suddenly "a gun behind every bush" makes friendly neighbors and less crime friendly neighborhoods.

This happened at a dollar general and there was even a Fark thread about it.

The same usual suspects came into that thread stating "OMG THE POOR ROBBER," Stop feeding the trolls kids. They are getting old.

Good on the person who stopped the robbery - obviously we wish he could have de-escalated the situation without needing to draw and shoot, but that isn't what happened.

Guns aren't the cause, they just make it easier.

Deer hunting is popular, but moreso for those who use guns over bows. I don't know if there are any knife, fountain pen, or grenade hunting seasons for deer...


...because hunting is constitutionally regulated by the states, and various classes of items (including spears) have different seasons for different animals in different states. I don't even hunt and I know this. Go away you useless commenter you.

Sorry to disappoint but I would tell them to do so if circumstances allowed for it. Better for there to be two dead criminals then one dead clerk and one dead witness to the shooting of the clerk. I know my brother who is also in law enforcement would say the same, both were law abiding concealed carrying before entering law enforcement.

That's because these killing sprees occur where armed citizens are not allowed. They may be crazy but apparently not stupid. They choose locations where the targets are numerous and armed opposition is forbidden.

So if they didn't, they are proving that a firearm is not needed to commit a violent felony, just as gun rights advocates have been saying all along. It is bad people, not bad guns. Thank you for you contribution and failed attempt at a talking point.

Outstanding, I can satisfy my bloodthirst by waiting in convenience stores in seedy neighborhoods. Just wait for someone to try and rob it with a milk crate. 


I'm just glad we have these fine old people with guns to act as Judge, Jury, and Executioner waiting around. It makes me feel really safe. Actually no it doesn't. I own firearms, but I also live in California where we understand that the second worse thing you can do with a gun is shoot somebody else with it, just behind shooting yourself. Last thing we need is more RoboCop style justice, where people are murdered with impunity for crimes that don't really beg for the death penalty. Screw Florida, and Screw their gun carrying, insane population.

The cops aren't there to protect you. They show up after the crime has been committed and try and figure out what happened. In fact, the SCOTUS has plainly stated that the police have no obligation to protect anyone.
