Yay guns!

Boobies

And here's your daily anti-gun story.

What's this guy's connection with the US government? Ex-marine? Ex-CIA agent?
 
2013-01-29 09:41:39 PM  
So now we have to outlaw hostages?
 
2013-01-29 09:41:46 PM  
If the driver was allowed to carry an assault rifle, this never would have happened. Thanks Obama.

I Have Assumed Control: Boobies


Ahhhhhhahahaha!
 
2013-01-29 09:42:12 PM  
I'm sure it's another false-flag operation, the child is an actor, etc.
 
2013-01-29 09:42:16 PM  
Whoa, Dothan? Didn't think I'd ever see that towns name again after leaving Fort Rucker. Crazy.
 
2013-01-29 09:43:08 PM  
If only school bus drivers were armed, this would never happen!
 
2013-01-29 09:43:38 PM  
don't worry - the NRA has a rapid response unit ready to deploy at any time and all hours in order to protect the rights of nutball gun owners from gun grabbing libruls!

*whew*.

dodged that one!
 
2013-01-29 09:43:42 PM  
So just another Tuesday in Alabama then?

Nina Haagen Dazs: So now we have to outlaw hostages?


No. Just six year olds.
 
2013-01-29 09:44:20 PM  
Hey, I don't mean to be rude, but can you guys just stop it. I mean just stop it. Stop hurting each other. It really makes the rest of us sad, and angry and well, frustrated.

Sit down and just stop it!

FTA: Dykes pulled a gun on him and his daughter on Dec. 10 after Dykes believed Davis had driven in Dykes' yard

WELL!  I mean after THAT clearly a 2nd Amendment solution was absolutely NECESSARY.
 
2013-01-29 09:44:28 PM  
WTF is wrong with people?
 
2013-01-29 09:44:39 PM  
Someone needs to make this illegal, and FAST.
 
2013-01-29 09:44:41 PM  
Oh man.  This is a guy who went so far as to prep an underground bunker on his property.  I'm guessing everything in the area is already boobie-trapped.
This won't end well.
 
2013-01-29 09:44:41 PM  
Where's Dirty Harry when you need him?
 
2013-01-29 09:44:57 PM  
Jimmy Lee Dykes

of course that's his name.

solution to a school bus hijacking:

2013-01-29 09:45:22 PM  
FTFA: James Edward Davis, Jr., who lives near Dykes on Private Road 1539, told the Dothan Eagle that Dykes pulled a gun on him and his daughter on Dec. 10 after Dykes believed Davis had driven in Dykes' yard. Davis said he reported Dykes to the Dale County Sheriff's Department. Dykes was arrested Dec. 22 and charged with menacing.

And yet he still had a gun

/why?
 
2013-01-29 09:45:23 PM  
All bus drivers should be armed.
 
2013-01-29 09:45:31 PM  
Pop quiz, hotshot.
 
2013-01-29 09:45:44 PM  
He's headed down to David Koreshville.

AverageAmericanGuy: And here's your daily anti-gun story.

You seem to equate a small, local news outlet reporting on something rather shocking to ALL of the mass media outlets running this story 24/7. It's tiresome.
 
2013-01-29 09:45:51 PM  
If the Demorats weren't going to take our guns away he wouldn't have felt the urgency to exercise his 2nd Amendment rights.
 
2013-01-29 09:46:26 PM  
Oh hey look, let's post snarky comments about being trendily anti-gun! Not like actually worry about someone's child who's in a horrible situation or someone's father/son/brother who's heading to ICU...

Crap, I'm on fark, what am I thinkin'? How big was the gun's clip? Did it have assault bullets? If only our busses had bulletproof windows and panic rooms.
 
2013-01-29 09:46:27 PM  
Holy shiat. I definately don't see this ending well, but pray it does.

Lots of gunnuts have bunkers, nothing special about that.

Probably because he's only been charged, not convicted.
 
2013-01-29 09:47:11 PM  
The article doesn't say which of the players (if any) are black and which are inbred rednecks. How do I know who to pull for?

Go to hell, oppressors!
 
2013-01-29 09:47:11 PM  
Now if the 6 year old was armed, this would have never happened.  Concealed carry works.
 
2013-01-29 09:47:14 PM  
Aw geez, not this shiat again...
 
2013-01-29 09:47:33 PM  
Anybody want to stop for a bag of boiled nuts?
 
2013-01-29 09:47:37 PM  
Took the "Dothan" route from Clearwater, FL up to Bloomington, IN one year instead of just doing I-75 to I-24 to I-65. It's a few hundred miles shorter but takes way longer.

Best thing I remember about Dothan -- hot boiled peanuts some guy just got done making outside his roadside restaurant. Also, there's this store on your way through that sells awesome bonsai trees. Still want to drive through there again and get one.
 
2013-01-29 09:47:47 PM  
I'm sure there's some sort of legislation that could have prevented this.
 
2013-01-29 09:47:49 PM  
Many Dothans died to bring us this headline.

KarmicDisaster: Lots of gunnuts have bunkers, nothing special about that.


so since few gun owners have bunkers, you're conceding that 99.9% of all gun owners are no longer nuts?
 
2013-01-29 09:48:22 PM  
The bus pulled in

ursomniac: FTA: Dykes pulled a gun on him and his daughter on Dec. 10 after Dykes believed Davis had driven in Dykes' yard


Did the bus pull into his driveway?
 
2013-01-29 09:48:23 PM  
All Dale County and Ozark City Schools will be closed Wednesday.

Well that's one way to get a day off.
 
2013-01-29 09:48:27 PM  
There you go, just assuming that "shot" means "shot with a gun." It could just mean that he was shooting hoops.
 
2013-01-29 09:48:35 PM  

DoctorCal: Anybody want to stop for a bag of boiled nuts?


lol, read my mind!
 
2013-01-29 09:48:39 PM  
So that would a total of like four teeth involved in all of this?
 
2013-01-29 09:48:44 PM  

Demetrius: All bus drivers six year olds should be armed.

 
2013-01-29 09:48:49 PM  
it's a really big-ass country with a lot of people in it.  shiat's gonna happen.  But Midland CIty, AL, Aurora, CO, Sandy Hook, CT?--they might was well be different countries.  And if this were Europe--they would be.  So it's not like there's some crisis happening in your backyard.  Well, unless you live in Chicago.  Then it might be.

Sorry about that.

doyner: If the Demorats weren't going to take our guns away he wouldn't have felt the urgency to exercise his 2nd Amendment rights.


Good on you for getting a jump on the trolling. This will surely net you more bites as yet another Fark Gun Thread™ devolves into a sh*tstorm of name-calling, poo-flinging, and general chicanery.

Good luck!

Duh, kids should be homeschooled and not exposed to that hippy liberal sozialist crap that they have to leave the safety of their homes and bibles for.

error 303: Whoa, Dothan? Didn't think I'd ever see that towns name again after leaving Fort Rucker. Crazy.


Dothan? Dammit I used to live in Enterprise. Stupid Alabama.
 
2013-01-29 09:49:25 PM  
Did I miss it in TFA? Is the Bus Driver OK? I mean, good on 'em for being defiant, but besides "being shot", what happened, how bad are they?

/And: "Who is the Bus Driver"?
 
2013-01-29 09:49:26 PM  
Shoot the hostage.
That's what I learned on TV.
