(ABC)   That town meeting shooting last night? Yeah, that was due to a property dispute between the owner and the town. I mean that was the best way to handle such things, right?   (abcnews.go.com) divider line 16

He needed to get out of Monroe County -- the fastest-growing county in the state because it's becoming a bedroom community for New York City and Philadelphia -- and get up to the "Big T" part of the state where pooping in a bucket makes you "uppity and highfalutin'"

Pocket Ninja: I wonder how long it will be before somebody points out that if everybody in the town meeting had been armed, this wouldn't have happened.


If by "arms" you mean hugs. He could have been stopped with the power of love if everyone had just come together and opened their hearts.

The old fart was merely standing his ground as was his sacred right under the only important amendment to the Constitution.

Sure, they could have returned fire through the wall. That would have worked out, I'm sure.


The thing that everyone is missing here is that due to various Democratic-enforced building codes and safety regulations, the town hall was not built with walls strong enough to stop bullets based on the current regulations. If the job-killing building codes were removed, the free market would've driven the cost down to the point where the town would've selectively chosen to install bullet-stopping concrete walls when building the town hall.

So, thanks Obama, for another set of countless gun deaths on your watch. Romney would've put an end to this madness.

Actually, someone *DID* use a gun to stop him:

The shooter returned to his car and came back inside with another weapon when a local official at the meeting grabbed him, Reber said.
"(West End Open Space Commission executive director) Bernie Kozen was there tending to the man and he (the shooter) didn't see them," Reber said. "Bernie bearhugged him and took him down. He shot (the shooter) with his own gun."

PunGent: CarnySaur: "This land is my land
This land is my land
This land is my land
This land is my land
This land is my land
This land is my land
This land was made for only me."

- Woody Guthrie

"This land is my land
It's not your land
I've got a shotgun
You haven't got one
This land was made for me not you..."

- my property law professor


As I recall from being a precocious youngster in the 70s . . .

"This land is my land
This land is not your land
I've got a shotgun
and you haven't got one
So you better get off,
or I'll blast you head off,
This land was made for only me . . ."

There were other lyrics, but that is all I recall . . .

\\ oh the violent songs we knew pre-present day issues
\ "Hi-ho, hi-ho, it's off to school we go, with razor blades and hand grenades . . ."

monoski: SmackLT: So subby, you're saying that the town commissioners shouldn't have given this man the opportunity to discuss a dispute with them? Just roll right over the little guy without recourse? Seems harsh to me.

I think you are a little short on the underlying facts like the article. Properties are not condemned overnight, there is a process.


That's true, but in all honesty, it's only a process you can effectively counter if you have the money to fight it, and people who do have the money to fight it generally don't end up getting their property condemned for cause (as opposed to eminent domain condemnations).

So, if you don't have the money to fix up your place to begin with, it's not very likely that you'll have the money to effectively fight a condemnation proceeding by the town.   Especially if you've pissed off the town board by being a cantankerous old cuss who just wants to be left alone.
