CowardlyLion Not arguing for shooting anyone, ever, but if you're not willing to draw and fire on someone, you should not be carrying a firearm.

/I'll never be carrying one


So, you're saying that anyone excercising their right to legally carry a firearm is obligated to shoot someone at some point? Nice, I like it! Kinda like a bloodsport proof of virility! You have to shoot someone every year to get your permit renewed!

Exactly - if you aren't shooting people, you don't need a gun.

Completely agree with you there. He held his fire, kept his weapon holstered and noted a bystander could have been in the line of fire.

poe_zlaw: Plant Rights Activist: AssAsInAssassin: FTFA: "Mohammed will have surgery to remove a few of the pellets, and the most lasting pain will be the trauma of being the victim of a hate crime - one in which he was shot in the face for being something that he isn't."

What the fark does it matter whether he is or isn't a Muslim? How does that make the slightest farking difference? How did this excrement make it past an editor?

Fark, some "journalists" are dumb.

The way I read it it sounds like the author is trying to say it would somehow be better if he is a Muslim. Not sure if that is his intent, but that is how that sentence comes off.

Jesus, fcuikn relax you two. News article/ editor police are worse than the grammar police. He told you a story. You got the information from it. Quit crying about what else he says. Go get yourself a pulitzer if you're so fcuikng good.


Yeah! The ignorance of that writer is just as good as your knowledge!

Seriously, this is why it's becoming harder and harder to find anyone that can write with confidence and competence - because more and more folks are happy to accept such sloppy writing.

I suppose I shouldn't complain, as folks like that are keeping me in kibble, but still, it's always fun to watch someone stand up for incompetence, as if it's somehow defensible. "It's 'Murika! Yer allow'd ta be stupid! Don't yew criticize him - he's just exercisin' his rights as a 'Murikan!"

You're still a thinking human being capable of discretion. While the guy was genuinely being assaulted, the assault was not immediately considered to be life threatening. Brandishing the firearm in hopes that it would diffuse the situation was prudent,and he could have chosen to pull the trigger had the assault not ceased.

CaptSS: Let's play Hogan's Alley. Put a pair of sunglasses on to simulate nighttime. After looking at the picture you have .5 seconds to decide which is a pellet gun and which is a firearm and whether you think the thug is going to kill you. (And yes one is a .22 and one is a pellet gun.)
[i.imgur.com image 850x319]

Victim had every right to fire at the suspect as soon as he saw him point the weapon at him. I highly doubt a Grand Jury would indict the victim. Now, if he shot at him while he was fleeing, yeah maybe - but not at the point of confrontation.


One of these suitcases contains a nuclear weapon.

Shae123: gilgigamesh: After taking two pellets to his head and neck, Mohammed stands and watches the man flee, then notices a bystander who could have been hit if Mohammed had taken a shot. His hand is on his gun. But it stays in the holster.

A rare example of a responsible gun owner. Most people in this situation probably would have caused a tragedy here.

F you...please site some specifics, other than your lib opinion.


Put it back in your pants.  I'm not saying responsible gun owners are rare.  I am saying its rare when we have a news story about a potentially very bad situation that gets resolved peacefully and without tragedy because the guy with the gun did the right thing.

Maybe you should read all two sentences you are quoting before spouting off next time, genius.

I quoted a line from the article that stated the victim realized he could have shot an innocent bystander and said it was a good thing that tragedy was avoided, and got accused by a half dozen people of being a Nazi sympathizer or something.

So yes.  Yes it is.

I'm not with you on this, discretion is the better part of valour, and in this case discretion was used to avoid endangering a bystander.

If you are always willing to draw and fire, you shouldn't be carrying either.

It's less about trying to hold people to and encourage higher levels of competence than it is about just trying to put someone down in an attempt to look smarter. Although, I did just realize the entire MO of Fark is exactly the topic we are discussing.

Is it just me, or is it most concerning that both the headline and the article very clearly assume that the right and expected outcome was for this idiot to be shot by Mohammad? That's not how guns are supposed to be used!! You don't carry them to retaliate against non-lethal attackers, just deter them. Mohammad is clearly a wise man. This is exactly how most concealed carriers would have handled the situation.

I thought all guns already had to be registered in Canada. Are you saying that even though Canada spent decades and untold billions of dollars on their gun control programs, you can still buy one at 1 AM from a corner dealer? Wow, that says a lot about enforceability of new laws.

Also, since you're Canadian, you cannot buy any guns in American from any licensed dealer nor from any law-abiding citizen since sales in states must be between state residents - and you're not one. So... you can't just buy a gun here.
