Coolfusis: Is this that thread where we're supposed to argue whether or not people should have guns when this guy didn't need one?/pro-gun//within reason
The Stealth Hippopotamus: I fear babies more than I fear guns....
jjorsett: BronyMedic: Coolfusis: Is this that thread where we're supposed to argue whether or not people should have guns when this guy didn't need one?No, it's the thread where every left-winger with an agenda tries to equate responsible people who want firearms for whatever personal reasons with every kook and retard who ever wanted to hole up in a mountain redoubt and fight off The Man with mortar fire and RPGs. Like everyone who wants smaller government has to be tarred as an anarchist whose ideal is Somalia.
SixOfDLoC: BronyMedic://The idea/argument that a bunch of weekend hunters who have 30-06s are going to stop the US Military in modern times is silly.Truth. And the idea that someone's cache of firearms, no matter how large, is going to protect them from the government is equally silly. If you want to preserve freedom, the key isn't arming the public so much as disarming the government. The 2nd amendment ceased to serve any real purpose the minute the police started carrying guns.
bikerific: Good that they are OK.But, the dad didn't actually do anything. These guys came in looking to steal a car to escape. They grabbed the keys and took the car, and dad brandished a gun at them while they were leaving.

godxam: Magorn: the_rev: Good for the dad. He is very, very lucky that he didn't get killed. Violent criminals being actively prusued by police on the ground and in helicopters are desperate.You'd be surpsied. For the average "criminal" the crime they are commiting is a business decision, and they know the cops barely have time to investigate pure property crimes, but that if somebody gets hurt, shot or god forbid, killed, then they are bringing down an ungodly amount of heat and attention on thier heads. Add to that, the fact that the average thug's gun is rented not owned, and his friendly local street dealer has a "if you fire it, you've bought it" (because the gun now has a ballistic record linked to a crime) policy. So because of all that, most "bad guys" will retreat if they possibly can if their original motive was to rob you rather than hurt you specificallySo what you're saying is I should worry if someone breaking into my house has a gun - cause shiat, he ain't gonna shoot or nothin./I suspect you just made that shiat up.
Smoky Dragon Dish: Lsherm: Whatever Francisshiat. What's that from again? Teen Wolf?
santadog: What annoys me is the news is written like a poor novel. "Reed and Soto were enjoying precious hours of slumber after an exhausting week filled with the duties of caring for a newborn. The family dog, a Chihuahua mix named Pepe, dozed alongside them.""he first thing Reed recalls seeing was an unfamiliar person at the foot of his bed, flashing gold teeth and white eyes that in the darkness seemed to float, as though unattached to a human face."Come on.. just report the news.Oh wait.. Fark... alright.. I remember where I am now.
