State law requires applicants to demonstrate good cause, as well as good moral character, to carry concealed handguns

"Hmm, I see hear you once rented "SEX STARVED fark SLUTS #22: STINKY WHITE WOMEN". Application denied."

Raging Whore Moans: guns are for pussies


Sorry, you don't medal in the Troll Olympics.
The Russian judge gave you a two, but all the others gave you the finger. Better luck in four years.

moike: OgreMagi: Radioactive Ass: Remember those woman in a truck during the recent manhunt for that deranged ex-cop? A hail of gunfire and not one of them got hit.

Nope.  One of the women was hit, but fortunately it wasn't too serious.  However, your point is still valid.  The police are pretty shiatty marksmen because they spend so little time practicing, unlike private citizens who tend to target shoot a damn lot if they are into guns at all.

That's what I tended to notice when I used to spend a good deal of time at the range on a regular basis.

You had cops that came in regularly who practiced and were good shots, but they usually tended to be the type who would be firearms enthusiasts even if they were not LEOs.

And then you had cops who would come in once in a while who would put a target 15 feet out and still be bouncing rounds off the overhead rail and target hanger.  The worst offender I ever saw answered his cellphone while in the stall and lost all muzzle awareness, finger on the trigger, barrel swinging around wildly.  He had the balls to look pissed when the rest of us started ducking and screaming at him.

That guy shouldn't have been a cop... he didn't have enough common sense to work the fryolator at a McJob.


Too bad he didn't "answer" his pistol when his phone rang.

Thingster: You see someone hit by a car, then a guy jumps out and starts stabbing him, you shoot.

That's a good shoot in all 50 states.


As I read the California law, you can only use deadly force to protect immediate family members and your employers/servants.

TuteTibiImperes: sugar_fetus: TuteTibiImperes:t's the duty of law enforcement to protect the public, one shouldn't ever be expected to carry a gun in order to do it oneself.

Not according to the Supremes.

http://www.nytimes.com/2005/06/28/politics/28scotus.html?_r=0

"The Supreme Court ruled on Monday that the police did not have a constitutional duty to protect a person from harm, "

I've had this discussion on various gun threads many time.  Regardless of if they have a legally mandated duty to do so, it's still their job.


Your willingness to continue issuing a statement even after it has been proven to be false is admirable, in the same way that a creationist's insistence upon denying decades of established scientific research is admirable.

"The risk of armed confrontation "is not limited to the home," O'Scannlain said. He invoked the situations of "a woman toting a small handgun in her purse as she walks through a dangerous neighborhood, or a night-shift worker carrying a handgun in his coat as he travels to and from his job site."

1. You are supposed to avoid going into a dangerous neighborhood if you carry a gun. One of the first rules of carry and conceal is to avoid situations in which you might have to use a weapon.
2. So what company allows their workers to carry guns at their job site?

Callous: sugar_fetus: the money is in the banana stand: I don't feel safer or less safe with people here being able to concealed carry. There are times however I feel safer when I carry than not. I haven't had to ever draw thankfully, but I would rather have that ability should I need it than not. I have known far too many people who have suffered from not being armed than I know people who have been the victim of an accident (none) or the victim of someone who carries legally (none).

I don't feel safer when carrying.. I have a spare tire and jack in my car, and a fire extinguisher in my kitchen. Neither one of them protects me from flats or fires, so neither make me feel safer.

They all, however, make me more prepared in case something does go wrong.

I've been assured time and again on Fark that preparation for unlikely events indicates paranoia.  That's why I stopped wearing a seat belt and threw away my smoke detectors.


Smoke detectors and seat belts are for pussies!  Why are you so afraid?

I concur. I cannot understand why judges believe that concealed weapons permits should be issued to people who are not able to provide substantial campaign contributions to local sheriffs.

FTFA: "In this file photo, San Francisco Superior Court Judge Richard Kramer points to a shooting target in his office that was used during his firearm training for a concealed weapon permit he obtained because of death threats he received following his 2005 same-sex marriage ruling in San Francisco."

I looked at the photo in the article of the judge pointing to the target from his CCW test and my first thought was, "Holy crap dude, they gave you a CCW with grouping like that?"
