ZeroCorpse: ZeroCorpse: Doom MD: Oh look another innocent life saved by firearms. I guess some of the statists in here would prefer she be stabbed to death.

If the kidnapper hadn't had a firearm, she wouldn't have been kidnapped.

Try again.

Yes. I know he didn't have a gun. But I like f♥cking with you types anyway.

You do realize that deliberately being stupid still makes you stupid, right?

Reverend J: nocturnal001: Facetious_Speciest: Obviously, it's generally a bad thing to kick in a door and shoot someone, but I think there's the occasional exception...

I had assumed this would be the all to common "excessive force guy kills somebody and wingnuts rush to defend gun rights" deal but this seems pretty legit.

Maybe stupid of them not to have given the tip to the police though, but I can't blame them.  Now if they had broken in the door and shot him without an imminent threat to the woman's life, then that might be a problem.

I think that whoever gave the tip to the family knew that the cops would have most likely done jack and shiat with it. NOLA cops are pretty useless from what I've seen especially since they bailed on the search after the first night.

To my minority friends,

If a loved one is missing or has been hurt by somebody, please use the following description:

White female, blonde, 5'8", would bang

That woman really needs to evaluate her life choices. This is like what, the 3rd or 4th time this has happened in the last few days?

redmid17: Violent crime and murders are clustered in very small areas.

Usually areas about 9mm across.

If I am even in that situation, I've had lots of practice

Now where, exactly, do I even *get* a bunch of horsemen?

Breaking down the door is so gauche, I prefer the stealthy approach myself

guestguy: "On Friday, as police and family members alike searched near Thomas' abandoned car, along with areas near his hometown, witnesses gave the family members a tip about a vacant house in a nearby field where the car was located. "

Ah, got my timeline mixed up there. Still, they were lagging behind.

Infernalist: Having said that, would we all be singing this same tune if the attacker had slit the girl's throat upon hearing the 4-wheelers coming in?

Well, hindsight is 20/20 and we're all critical dicks on this site, so what do you think?

justtray: stevetherobot: Speaking of crazy persons, if the crazy person kidnapper had had a gun, he would have shot her instead of stabbing her and she would most likely be dead now.

Wait, how could he NOT have a gun? I've been told laws against gun ownership don't prevent criminals from getting guns. So he should have had one.

Does not compute.


Open Carry is good, because it deters people who would commit crimes around you. Except that deterents don't work because criminals don't obey laws.

Registration is bad because then everyone would know who has a gun, and would target them, except Open Carry is good because above.

I'm sorry to hear about your accident.  I hope your head feels better shortly.

I have no idea why, but once I read this line:

"A neighborhood resident and another man, along with almost half a dozen members of Arceneaux's family, took off on four-wheelers toward the house. "

Wagner's Flight of the Valkyries started playing in the back of my head.
