A weapon, any weapon, is most useful before your opponent knows you have it. That's why snipers are so freakin' scary. That's why the samurai practiced the art of iai, or a power cut when first drawing the sword. It's also why crocodiles evolved to only stick their tiny little eyes up out of the water.

By contrast, the weapon brandished is the weapon your opponent already has a plan to overcome. Bees sting to keep people away predators, that's why we smoke 'em and steal their honey. Scorpions have that nasty tail, that's why every animal on earth likes to cut it off first when eating them.

The French built the Mangenot line, so Hitler came in through Belgium with a surprise strike. That's this law in action. So you're drawing a weapon, be it a knife, gun, or whatever, you'd best be ready to start using it or you've just lost the fight.

You pull a gun only as the absolute last resort, not because Myrtle and Doris are making a left from the far-right side of the lane and they're not sure giving opposing traffic a 6000-car-length buffer is enough time to get their Delta 88 across the lane and into the hairdresser's.

Listen you all have the knowledge upon which the last person to do the condoning of the violence is the person who is me. But this person does raise the goodness of the point that people in Arizona have the horrible habits as those who must do the driving. Acquittal.

Non-story. Over-zealous, responsible gun owner. Nothing to see here.

Typical gun owner.

While not defending the old guy waving his gun, this sounds like half a story.  I'd guess the officer broke some minor traffic law to wind the old guy up?

Yep, responsible for being an asshole with a gun.

They also have coloration to warn away would-be predators (to the bee's benefit, lest they use their sting and die).

Nature has evolved a variety of strategies in the ongoing quest for survival.

Evidently, this individual's particular mode of survival is to assume the form of a deranged moron. Not nearly as scary as the ambush predators you mention, the deadly and calculating sniper. Or the idiot going around shooting cars in Kansas City.

Anyway, it seems he will be dealt with, tagged, and eventually released.

Yet one more example of a strange creature from Fark of Arizona's, Wild Kingdom.

"Thompson said he moved to Arizona several months ago."

Clearly a misinformed 'newbie'. Maybe he believed all the talk that all Arizonans wave guns around all the time.  Although it is true that there are no requirements for any kind of permit to carry a weapon openly or concealed, there is law about where in a vehicle the gun should be. Hint: It's not in your hand waving it out the window.

"He made some comment that everybody in Arizona were perhaps not the best drivers in the world," Thompson said.

He's obviously never been to Michigan.

Sounds like a liberal who made up a strawman stereotype of gun owners in his mind beforehand, then moved to Arizona and tried to live up to it.

/he's lucky he didn't get his beliefs literally shot down

Probably from TX and just signaling a left turn.

Damnit. He's on to our lib gun grabber master plan.

The daily stories about idiots with guns are also a part of the same operation. But you outsmarted us.

Seriously, if that wasn't sarcasm, please go turn in all your guns to law enforcement and check into a mental healthcare facility.

Considering the rate of these sorts of articles, the liberal infiltration is far more wide spread than we ever thought!

Mostly only in the media, which might as well be "the entire world" as far as you're concerned. Fortunately these beliefs don't last long when they encounter reality, like the belief that Arizona cops are racists looking for any excuse to ventilate a black man.

/though they often end more like Tim Treadwell's story than like this guy's

Maricopa County really is derp country, isn't it? Must be a hellmouth there or something, with Sheriff Joe, that crazy biatch from Kitchen Nightmares, the guy from the article and all the other countless news articles that go by...

You sound upset about something.

Police do not know what prompted McDonald to point the gun, but Thompson said he moved to Arizona several months ago.

Probably assumed that that's how Arizonans wave hi.

kobrakai: Damn. A black man pointed a gun at a Maricopa County cop? He's toast.


He could have ended up a lot toastier, if he had responded to being surrounded by cops by opening fire. A lot of people, when faced with the cognitive dissonance of reality not actually working the way they were raised to believe, go full retard rather than admit their deeply held beliefs were wrong the whole time.

If you ever have to wonder, "How could anyone live like that?" the answer is usually, "They don't, your benevolent authorities just want you to think they do."

//because they are trained to believe their beliefs aren't beliefs at all

Then I have not appropriately phrased my question. I am merely curious regarding the feeling that you experience as a result of you being a complete failure. I am not upset, I am only interested in learning your perspective.

I hope your family gets you the help that you need for your delusional behavior. Might I ask where you live? I'd like to inform the local constable that a gun owner is experiencing mental trouble, it's the responsible thing to do.

I get the same when I tell them one of my favorite suspense movies stars Richard Gere (The Mothman Prophecies).

I'm not convinced that "brandishing a weapon" appears on reports of actual violence. I suppose I could be wrong.

Brandishing a gun, and driving a corvette. Insert pen is joke here, so to speak.
