STFU, Dick. You cock.

Oh yeah, this guy. I had been wondering what happened to him.

The Joe Biden defense?!?  :D  Who takes advice about firearms from that idiot?  I mean, sure, he's next in line for the Presidency, and certainly should know something about the law what with being a lawyer and all, but he's well-known for blithering nonsense when it comes to facts about firearms.

Hell, if you call the IRS and follow their advice and you're wrong, the IRS will prosecute the hell out of you.

Sounds like Uncle Joe's advice worked out okay, but this here fella has a problem with his local constabulary.

Guns shouldn't come out unless you need to take a life to protect yourself or others, regardless of what your dip shiat VP says.

Did Joe say he wouldn't be arrested?

"I choose not to take a life that night," Barton said. "I fired my gun in the air."

You know, not all of us enjoy aerial lead to the noggin, even at sub terminal velocities. If for some reason you find your self *having* to fire a gun for the noise, point that shiat into the dirt.

Bullets don't fire out at escape velocity. Those things are gonna come back down. And even if you did have a gun that could fire into space,  that husk of metal keeps going till it hits something. That can be a ship, or the planet behind that ship. It might go off into deep space and hit somebody else in ten thousand years. If you pull the trigger on this, you're ruining someone's day, somewhere and sometime. That is why you check your damn targets.

I like it. Not many people can pull off that kind of belligerent real-world trolling while simultaneously making themselves the biggest victim since Anne Frank.

Note to self: when I get busted for shooting at imaginary car thieves, remember to say I missed them because I was humanely firing off "warning shots." That's good stuff.

I'm fairly certain that even if they had escape velocity, they would burn up during exit, thus keeping space ships, planets, and people in 10K years safe. :D

Good thing the guy in question didn't fire any bullets then, huh?

"Well, see how far they want to push this."

Lol, is that a threat from a guy already on trial for gun-related shenanigans?  Great idea.

But he did! He fired those shotgun bullets out of his extra clip!

Possessions aren't worth someone dying over, let the CD player go.

Y'ain't from Texas, are you?  There, shooting someone over $500 worth of private property can be deemed a justifiable homicide.

I'm less concerned with the life of the thief* than I am the shiatstorm that is caused from a discharge of a firearm. Better to call the cops. If you really want to do something then take pictures of the thieves for the cops to use as evidence; if the asshole then decides they want to upgrade from thief to assailant, then things might change. But yeah, if there's no imminent threat of bodily harm then leave the gun out of it.** Even with an insurance deductible I'd be out less money and hassle just replacing whatever they're taking out of my vehicle.

*I'm willing to admit I'm an asshole, but a thief is hardly someone enhancing the human experience. They are doing nothing productive. Fark thieves.

**And I'm a big gun enthusiast. But guns aren't the solution to every problem.

From M-W.com
bul·let
noun, often attributive \ˈbu-lət also ˈbə-\
: a small piece of metal or another material that is shot out of a gun

I was, of course, making a generalization. But the things that come out the flashy end of a shotgun *could* technicaly be called bullets. As well as the objects propelled by a sling. But arn't there more important things to argue about? Such as the difference between a clip and a magazine?

The goddamn Vice President of the United States of America told us on national television that this was the best way to protect your home. I don't see how he can be prosecuted at all.

Bullets are fired out of a gun, but not everything fired out of a gun is a bullet. Shotgun pellets are not bullets.

pel·let
noun \ˈpe-lət\
: a small, hard ball of food, medicine, etc.
: a small metal object that is shot from a gun
 
The difference is important because shotgun pellets generally have a much lower ballistic coefficient and terminal velocity than bullets, so they're much less likely to do as much damage when coming back to earth.
