An armed society is a polite society. I read it on Fark.

People that take longer than 20 seconds to back out of a parking space are farking assholes. People that sit in their car for five minutes to text or make a phone call while their car is in reverse deserve a special place in hell with child molesters and people that talk during movies.

Another responsible gun owner.

Wait a minute - I have a law license!

You can DO that???

Connors and his attorney had argued that the victim, who has a criminal record, was the aggressor.

He tried to use the lesser-known Stand Your Downs defense.

This is another consequence of a state with very little firearm regulation.

Parking lots everywhere should think twice about their shenanigans.  good for him.


now if he could only figure out who the real enemies of Democracy are.

No need to sugar coat it, tell us what you really think.

On the other hand, unless your on Rodeo Drive, or its Christmas Eve, just get another spot and walk.  Lardass.

Judge Allen Swan imposed the one-year jail term and ordered Connors into custody immediately after the verdict, a move that apparently caught Connors by surprise, because normally people with money don't go to jail.

This must be that safer, more polite society gun enthusiasts are talking about when they suggest we all start packing.

Sure sounds like it.

Gun-nuts have small dicks...

Merely one more isolated incident.

The lawyer is a complete douche bag, but a year in jail?
 
2013-11-15 01:39:34 PM
I'm sure he was just unfamiliar with the gun laws of his state. Probably more of a Constitutional Scholar.

I used to date a lawyer. They are scary, psychotic people.

I got better.

As he and the woman - later identified as Connors' wife - exchanged words, Connors got out of the passenger side of the BMW and walked up to the victim's car. As the victim tried to open his door to get out, Connors pushed the door closed and pointed a gun at him


Assuming nothing was left out here, that is some seriously psychopath-level reasoning. Not even say a word to the guy arguing with your wife-- just roll up to his door and draw without a second thought.

So they attempted the George Zimmerman defense.

Dimensio: This is another consequence of a state with very little firearm regulation.


No, this is the consequence of an idiot with a firearm. He'd as likely to have that gun with or without the regulation...ever been to Detrout? Smart folk use a gun intelligently, others use a gun.
 
2013-11-15 02:21:30 PM
well, if they're taking this privilege away, i might as well just throw my law license in the trash.

/ attorneys used to represent someone in a trial of combat before the king's court.  hence the name esquire upon admission to the bar.

Detroit also has few firearm regulations, just like the state in which this incident occurred: Massachusetts.

Oh, they are. My 1st wife was a legal secretary until she figgered out how to do the divorce. Parties to them consisted of arguing a point, any point until the stupor set in. Their whole de rigueur  is to avoid the law, physically, morally, philosophically, and legally. They're not normal, in any sense of word.

IF, to refine the point, Detrout made firearms illegal inside the city limits, would there be less guns? ...Or just less guns in the hands of law-abiding people?

/'citizens' has a socialistic taint on it nowadays
//Don't carry 'cause the times that a gun would be useable, legally and morally, are very few, and would increase with the fact that gun is on my hip and known.

I knew a guy who would deliberately troll people with his backup lights when in a bad mood.

They'd get increasingly pissed and he'd just "change his mind" and put it in park.

I guess it's better than being mean to a waitress or shop clerk.

I don't play the "gotta have the closest parking spot" game, but it's just common courtesy to not try to pass behind someone that's attempting to back out of their parking space. But there's a limit. You have two turns of the steering wheel to make it out, neither of which should take longer than 4 seconds a piece. If you pull back into the parking space to start over, fark you, I'm getting past you before something even more retarded happens to both of our vehicles.
