Sounds like they had killing on the agenda when they went in, but even if they didn't the death of the one guy ups the ante to felony murder.

Welcome to the flip side of the gun debate. If the home owners renters hadn't been armed, who would be dead this morning?

Generally Castle Doctrine states (like Georgia) don't permit lawsuits like that.

Georgia is a SYG state as well.

So you either don't understand what the 'gun debate' is about, or you don't understand 'flipside'. I suspect both.

Gun debate is not about ERM MERH GERHD NO GUNS!! It's about what a reasonable person could expect to purchase for hunting and/or home protection or whatever is deemed, again, reasonable; where said guns should be stored (ie, you wanna fire your AK? keep in a supervised locker at the range); what the reasonable screening process is for acquiring a gun; what is reasonable for clip size and fire rate and whatever the fark else makes sense.

And yes, dumabass I know, this doesn't mean 'no more gun violence evar' it means a reasonable step in crafting a longer range policy that may help reduce farkup deaths for no reason

The problem with that thought process is, who defines what "reasonable" is? This year big brother decides 20 is a reasonable clip. And in 5 years, they say, well, you really only need 15. And so on.
I believe the gun owners are afraid of the slippery slope once the process begins.

There is no good reason to believe that any of those restrictions would have any effect on violence or deaths.

I glad the couple (not sure who fired on the suspects) didn't shoot the guy after he fell. That could've been murder. Instead they just threw him out and he may have been alive for 20 minutes while waiting for the police. Of course no snow, so no tracks showing someone went over and broke his neck while he laid there.

As Serious Post on Serious Thread stated, the process is "a reasonable step in crafting a longer range policy", not the total change in policy itself. Total civilian disarmament follows later.

That is only one, quite reasonable imo, position in the larger gun debate. There any many who want a "no guns period" and still others who would start with your stated position and use it as a first step to move on to further restrictions once that initial line in the sand had been crossed. Many supporters of "gun rights" feel that it's easiest to take a stand against any restrictions to so that restrictions don't ever go further.

Oh for crying out loud! If you've ever said the word gun outloud, you have blood on your hands!

Poor Tyrese was only passing through that apartment on his way home from getting a bag of Skittles. If they didn't let every man, woman and infant buy an automatic AK-17 than poor Tyrese would still be alive!

FTFA: Several intruders broke into an apartment on Lancashire Circle with a couple and two young children inside early Wednesday morning, police said. It is unclear who fired first, but police said the residents and the intruders exchanged gunfire.

Police said it appears that one of the intruders jumped out a second-floor window, possibly to escape the gunfire, hit a tree and fell on the ground. He was dead when officers arrived.


Made me think of the ideas expressed in this famous gun control debate: Link

They have a habit of throwing out examples they don't like.

Gun owners spend millions of dollars trying to protect themselves against violent people.
When one of those violent persons hits an anti guns house, he spends millions of dollars trying to disarm us.

I'm one of the libbiest libs ever and I don't know anyone who wants all guns gone. (Except maybe in a "Jesus we'd be better off if we never invented guns/nukes/etc" kind of way.)

They just want no guns in the hands of mentally unstable or criminal or very young people. Seriously, that's the goal of every gun control position: not arming people who will attack others or themselves. And I haven't yet met someone cynical enough to think those descriptions cover everyone.

It must be nice to be omniscient and therefore able to make any unfounded assertion and declare it fact.

Let me try: Which would have an effect on total violence and deaths, and that is really the point, isn't it?

Ooooh! I'm as good at that as you are!!
