(Bellingham Herald)   Concerned citizen sees 8 month pregnant woman smoking and lectures her on the dangers of smoking while pregnant. Just kidding. He pulls a gun on her and calls her a "white trash prostitute" and demands that she put the smoke out   (bellinghamherald.com ) divider line

The way to stop a bad woman with a cigarette is with a good guy with a gun.

Actually, I've never understood how it is legal for a pregnant woman to consume anything illegal for those under a certain age.  Not saying I personally believe it should be, just that I'm surprised it is not.

No one actually knows he pulled the gun... Anyone can say anyone pulled a gun on them..if the cops find one..you'll be arrested and guilty until proven innocent..sorry the justice system is corrupt.

there you have it folks. the guy is the real victim in all of this.

Personally I wouldnt draw a line at all.  The mother should have complete control over the parasite fetus IMO.  But considering the hard-ons some people have over abortion and the rights of the unborn coupled with the conservative's war on drugs, I'm surprised legislation hasnt been adopted along such lines.

This is really the logical conclusion to the direction of anti-parent sentiment this country is in the grips of.

You can't let your kid walk a block to their friend's house by himself. You can't leave your kids out of sight for a minute in public. You can't punish a child by having him stand in one place while you go do something 20 feet away. All of these bring down the ire of busybodies who will claim you're an unfit parent and abandoning your child.

The next step is for those busybodies to go ballistic if they see you harming your fetus. As a society, we've built ourselves up for this kind of idiocy.

My coworker just found out she was pregnant unexpectedly; her doctor told her not to stop smoking immediately since the sudden nicotine withdrawal could be worse for the fetus than if she smoked fewer cigarettes per day, then stopped after a few weeks. She's already 6+ weeks along, and her guilt over smoking before she knew she was pregnant is so great she's barely touched one since she found out.

Subby's obviously never dealt with a pregnant woman.

In the third trimester my wife would have either turned into a blubbering mess of tears or they'd have found her on top of the guy tearing out his throat with her teeth.

Being armed in preparation for a discussion is just a sensible precaution when dealing with expecting women....

That's too bad. Somehow my wife's pregnancy balanced her hormones and she became an absolute sweetheart.

The post-partum hormone crash woke me out of my 9 month bliss.

They're taking the man's guns away just because he told some biatch to protect her unborn child? That's un-American. Has Wayne LaPierre heard of this? I'm calling the NRA to the rescue, to restore to this man the only right that really counts.

Personally, I attribute a lot of the blame to the media. They get their ratings by sensationalism and scaring parents into thinking every single person in the world wants to rape and murder them and their child, and that their entire neighborhood is filled with murderers, molesters, and rapists.

So parents are under the impression this is business as usual with every single story they hear on television. Then we have a society that's paranoid as all hell about parents being abusive to their kids or this or that because it's what we see and hear in the media.

When in reality most of the people around us are decent, law-abiding citizens who have an interest in the common good.

Then there are people in the headline that make sure parents and children remain scared shiatless of every single stranger on the street.

IlGreven: And therefore, there should never be any regulations on guns. I mean, if they're gonna have illegal guns anyway, why not make 'em legal?


And, because a small fraction of guns contribute to crime, we should take them away from all law abiding citizens and have the same crime rate with different weapons of choice because we went for the initiative that felt good instead of something that actually helped.

One of the effects helping to lead to our record decrease in violence since a high in the 80's/90's is the fact that the gap between poor and middle class has lessened (not in a good way). After all, who are you going to be angry at, now? The family down the street who barely make it while you fail to make it? It's not like they aren't suffering. That's one of the reasons (there are many) why the media was surprised when everything crashed in 2007 and the entire country wasn't looted and abandoned six months later.

If you work to eliminate economic hardship, cultures of violence (gangs) in low income areas, and overt societal punishment for being the "wrong" type of person, you will see violence of all types diminish.

But, yeah, let's punish the law-abiding majority because a minority are dumb, irresponsible, and/or criminal. We should do that for everything!

No more driving! Some people are horrible drivers!
No more computers! Some people use them to commit fraud!
No more electricity! Some people use it to torture other people!
No more living! Some people use their lives to hurt others!

Of course, we will need to hook everyone up to a complex, bureaucratic organizations that has it's members exempt from the rules laid out to make sure that you citizens are complying.

Since the alternative is leaving those decisions up to the government, yes, yes it is.

When either of two social choices will lead to bad outcomes in individual cases, choose the one that increases personal liberty.
