An armed society is a polite society.

It's a damn shame that no one was able to provide even a vague description of the St. Louis assailant.

Damn shame.

I didn't shoot him. He was just going really fast when he bumped into my bullet.

Out very late in a shiat area, you might get a bullet in your ass.
 
2013-08-26 12:45:28 AM  
So if you bump into someone you better shoot first.

I can only think of one person I would shoot if I bumped into her walking down the street.

Having a gun apparently conveys an exaggerated sense of entitlement to some people.

The sense of entitlement came from this guy

The gun is just the "enforcer"

No it's the idiots who suddenly stop in the middle of the street while walking shoulder-to-shoulder who should get shot.
 
2013-08-26 12:54:49 AM  
Was it the police?

If that person felt threatened, then in Florida they have the right to shoot you to death.

Huh, not in Florida? I would have thought it would be in Florida. Somehow St. Louis makes as much sense as Florida though.

Did you read the "article" it is devoid of information.  And yeah, if you threaten people you deserve to be shot.  this sounds like a street gang initiation, not a "cracker kills attractive what the fark ever, JUSTICE FOR TREVON!"  STFU.

I wouldn't know, I know basic gun safety and have lots of experience handling guns.

I'll bet he healed up and promptly blogged about how the friendzoning slut still wouldn't.

Canada respectfully disagrees. Sorry.

Although people do get shot like this here in beautiful Oakland, CA, this is also a cover story the police sometimes use because apparently it would be even more scary to admit that someone was assassinated Downtown in broad daylight.  So I'm always a little skeptical when I hear stories about someone being shot for no reason.
 
2013-08-26 02:43:05 AM  
Or maybe not that it's less scary but it makes the Police look less inept.
 
2013-08-26 02:44:58 AM  
Its not the guns that are the problem; its the idiots holding them. For every "responsible" gun owner, there are a dozen that use easy access to the weapons to act anti-socially.

I would tend to think the opposite: The average person would be less frightened by a 'hit' (I assume not an assassination, as why would there be a political motivation for killing these nobodies). Nobody believes they have any reason to be killed, so random violence poses more of a threat to the average person than targeted violence.

I'd say you've got that backwards, but my sense is that even that's nowhere close to accurate.

With 300 million guns in the U.S., your numbers would suggest that 270 million of them are in the hands of people who would commit murder over being brushed by someone walking by them,

Actually, the data suggests that a large, large majority of guns are used legally and responsibly.

300 million guns
100 million gun owners (est)

If even 1 percent of guns and gun owners were criminal you'd have 1,000,000 gun criminals and 3,000,000 crime guns per year. I don't recall the true numbers, but it's something like 100,000 gun crimes per year, even assuming a worst-case situation.
