I can't find anything humorous about this story. A couple of people are gunned down by a group of unruly youth. That's messed up.

Some youths just can't behave in a respectful manner. It's sad. They should be locked up and removed from society.

FTFA:According to a witness, they were both shot outside of Walmart - and the gunfire sent everyone scrambling for their lives.

If only they had access to a decent education and reading comprehension...

At least they'll have a life, instead of being dead, raped, or like such as.

That goes without saying, although I wonder how much different the emotional damage from that is compared to being trapped in a crawl space then seeing their mother shoot an intruder.

Low price guns maybe, but good luck finding ammo. Not sure about there, but all 3 Wal-Marts in a 25 mile distance from my house have been cleared out of ammo for the past 3 years. I can't find freakin .22s ANYWHERE

I grew up outside of Memphis, and just recently went back for a work-related trip to the UT Health Science Center.  It's pretty impressive, and I was surprised at how nice downtown has become.  It still has lots of places that you don't want to get lost in, but that's true of every big city.

I think the trauma is much, much lower than being raped.  Or watching their mother get raped.  Or end up being murdered.  Worst of all would be if they got murdered by the lunatic who broke into their house.

Yet you tried to say they might be equal.  That's why you're stupid.  Or, to be fair, why you're being deliberately obtuse.  Either way, you deserve the ration of shiat you get for it.

F*ck you.  I pose a simple question, and it takes ten minutes for a couple of idiots to start in on me.  My sister had her two sons in the car with her when a drug addict with nothing left to live for jumped in front of the van to try and kill himself.  It was devastating to those children.  You both have completely written off the impact that shooting would have on the kids.

Dammit, son.  Is reading comprehension not your strong suit?  No one said there's no emotional damage.  No one ever said that.  We said it was better than the alternatives, which you equated as being equal.

Look - there's a point in every thread where you need to realize you've said something idiotic.  At that point, you can do one of a few actions:

1 - Man up, admit it, and move on.
2 - Leave the thread
3 - Continue to try and defend your idiocy, digging a deeper and deeper hole the entire time.

It's obvious you've selected #3.

If so, if convicted of this crime the suspect will never be able to own 1 again. Unless the DA cuts him a deal on a non felony charge in exchange for a guilty plea. Or he steals 1. Or has a family member illegally purchase 1 for him.

Which, when you read what you said, works out to saying they might be equal.  Which is exactly what I said.

National Media outlets, AKA "legitimate Media", are notoriously Left leaning and anti gun. You Will find shootings, but very little on stabbings, beatings, etc., even while those outnumber shootings by a wide margin. Please don't ask for citations: Look elsewhere besides the alphabet soup (CBS, MSNBC - "The Obomma Network", etc.).

Crowdsourced data on gun-related fatalities in the US since Sandy Hook. Feel free to dig through them and see if you can find how many of them are responsible gun owners protecting their lives and property.

ronaprhys: At least they'll have a life, instead of being dead, raped, or like such as.


What reasons do we have to believe the intruder would have caused any harm?

He rang the doorbell before breaking in. Do you suppose that if the woman answered the door instead of immediately hiding, he may have realized someone was home and not tried to break in at all? ("OMG there's a black man at the door, quick hide the kids and grab your gun!")

The article does not mention if the intruder was armed or not, but if after five shots, including hits to the face and neck, he was still able to run back out to his car and try to drive off, chances are the mother and her kids (who were cornered in a crawlspace) would be injured or dead if WAS armed and decided to return fire.

Wait, we have a homicide rate approximately the same as all of Europe combined (US homicide rate 4.8 per 100,000, Europe 3.5 per 100,000), and much, much lower than South America, Africa, or much of Asia, and we are the bad ones?

Hell, we've got a lower homicide rate than Eastern Europe (6.4 per 100,000), and if you look at the border states with Canada, those states that border Canadian provinces often have a lower homicide rate than their neighbors to the north.

For example. Quebec with perhaps the strictest gun laws in Canada has a homicide rate of 1.32 per 100,000, whereas Vermont, with the least restrictive laws in the US, has a rate of 1.1 per 100,000 and New Hampshire has a rate of 0.8 per 100,000.  Idaho has a slightly lower homicide rate than British Columbia (1.4 vs. 1.9 per 100,000), whereas Montana and Washington state are only slightly higher (2.9 and 2.7 per 100,000 respectively), Montana is almost exactly the same as Alberta (2.88 per 100,000), Montana and North Dakota (1.5 per 100,000) are lower than Saskatchewan (3.59 per 100,000), North Dakota and Minnesota (1.4 per 100,000) are lower than Manitoba (4.24 per 100,000).

Maine is lower than Nova Scotia.

So obviously it isn't necessarily "The US" as a whole.

Even looking to the South, the US border states have much, *MUCH* lower homicide rates than Mexico.

Drew don't cotton to linking to any gun self-defense or Ohio rape investigation news articles. I'm sure he has his reasons. I don't agree with some of his "forbidden links" but then again it's not my website.

Actually, that's not a half bad plan... how can we move all gun violence into Wal Marts? Two birds with one stone and all that....

dittybopper: Wait, we have a homicide rate approximately the same as all of Europe combined


All of Europe is 50 different countries of wildly varying states of development and economic and political stability. And you still don't have a point because even when you throw in a bunch of Eastern European shiatholes to try and skew the numbers in your favor you're off by 18%. Not exactly insignificant. And then you move on to some bullshiat about Africa and South America.

Comparing unlike things is dishonest and stupid. Do math a favor and stop torturing it to try and make a point that doesn't exist. You can't win this debate on numbers because they're massively stacked against you. It's just a mathematical fact that the U.S. leads by a long shot in gun deaths among developed nations with one exception: the country with a giant goddamn drug war going on between two paramilitary crime syndicates. It's just a mathematical fact that owning a gun increases your likelihood of being shot. You can't win with math. It's not on your side in this debate. In ANY regard.

I know you're not actually a complete moron which is why I can't for the life of me figure out why you insist on playing one every. farking. time. guns come up. Do you really care more about your precious little popguns than your integrity?

I've never met him, but I get the impression he's not a complete idiot.  I think it's mostly the people who are charged with greenlighting headlines that will get a lot of attention.  That and an inner city shooting story would draw out the morons just itching for an excuse to justify racist comments.
