I'd buy him a beer.
 
2013-04-28 08:56:51 AM  
the moral of the story is of course....never bring a club to a gunfight...
 
2013-04-28 08:59:58 AM  
I don't think anyone argues that this sort of thing doesn't happen.  It's just not as common as less fortunate aspects of having a gun around.

Even a little old grandma could have stopped the attacker, if she had a gun.

Self defense isn't vigilantism, troll.

A handgun is a very good tool for general home defense, an  AR-15 semiautomatic rifle.... not so much.

Put it another way..... there's a benefit in me owning a handgun, I can protect my home from an attacker is who is bigger and stronger than me. There's really no downside to handgun ownership for me.... people who use them responsibly are not a threat to me and those who don't are not looking to harm me.... they are gunning for their rival on the street corner. However, there's no benefit in me owning anAR-15 semiautomatic rifle over a handgun but a large downside in others owning them since this type of weapon is most likely to be used in a mass shooting where I might fall a victim.

A real man would have stopped the guy with his bare hands.
Losers have to resort to guns.

Arthur Jumbles: most likely to be used in a mass shooting


Obsessing about mass shootings is about as rational as worrying about a plane crash every time you board a plane.  It is extremely rare but the press hypes it for months.  Meanwhile people die in car crashes all the time and get zero national press.
 
2013-04-28 01:39:19 PM  
I suspect you can't buy club music at his store

Except that we regulate cars and planes to minimize the risk, but we do nothing about mass shootings.

Although I will give you that in this case this is most likely an elderly couple which is why the robber used physical force himself instead of a gun.

So, did this guy need a semi automatic assault rifle with a 30 round magazine to stop the guy with the club?
I suspect subby would have said so if it was anything like that.

Mr. and Mrs., 73 and 72, respectively.
Attacker, 31.

If you know someone who knows something about guns they can tell you.

Don't ask an NRA moron, they will try to give you some crap about an assault rifle with the full auto fire capability disabled somehow ceasing to be an assault rifle.

But only an idiot would fall for that.

We should have background checks on music store owners.
 
2013-04-28 03:17:34 PM  
Hey man, nice shot.
 
2013-04-28 03:17:40 PM  
You should be able to shoot anyone who commits any crime.

Armens hammered then Moore, no more.

How can I discuss this rationally when I cannot even parse your headline, subby?

If everyone were armed with pressure cookers this wouldn't be an issue.....

And yet plane crashes and car accidents continue to happen.

did the first man have a club permit and was his wife a baby seal?
 
2013-04-28 03:21:40 PM  
I'm glad he had the weapon and I hope that similar good Samaritans who have been vetted by a comprehensive background check and are free of mental health issues continue to help people well into America's future.

I also hope he's prepared to use that weapon in defense of the United States should an invasion occur and his services as a member of a well-regulated militia are called for.

Whew, I thought it was just me. That headline hurt my brain.

The vast majority of gun crime, including homicide/suicide, are committed with handguns.

But yeah, let's focus on semi automatic tactical assault death kill rifles.

We really should regulate mass shootings.

Yes, record stores exist.

But this was a music store - instruments, lessons and sheet music.

It's an order of magnitude more common, it's just that it's rarely reported on.

Enjoy your double-barrel shotgun, but an AR-15 can send your attacker's brains in all directions with one well-placed shot. So, that and the fact that so many others, including my government, have them, would be benefits to owning one.

You are correct. Only an idiot would accept that a firearm that does not meet the technical definition of "assault rifle" is not an "assault rifle". Intelligent individuals such as yourself understand that lying is acceptable when advocating civilian disarmament.
