Cool!

Pretty classy internet, pretty classy. Hopefully it helps them get off to a good start.
 
2014-06-07 06:20:47 PM
That's all kinds of awesome.

And here in Canada pepper spray and mace are both illegal to own. You may have deer or dog spray but you can only walk around in the wilderness with it. Carrying it in a city is illegal.

Fml I meant bear spray not deer spray.

I thought you had a mean deer problem. I was told we have an exploding deer population, but mace won't help that, maybe a flak jacket.

In other news, who the hell gets married when they're 22? (or ever, for that matter?)

Also, time to start buying the guy stuff from www.thisiswhyimbroke.com

Yeah, I, too, was waiting for the "and was sued for civil rights violations because racist." It is the left coast, after all.

Between this and the deputy at the courthouse, I see this as a tipping point. People are going to start fighting back using any means they can get. I would not be surprised that the next spree killer was taken down by someone using a baseball bat or a hockey stick. People have gone from being fearful of spree killers to tired of them and now they are angry. And, yes, I know the deputy was doing his job but he could have waited for back-up. Instead, he went, "Screw it. You are not getting in."
 
2014-06-07 08:36:10 PM
From now on, let's refer to the shooter as "the loser with a gun who got taken down with pepper spray, of all things".
 
2014-06-07 08:37:18 PM
I don't care about him. I want to talk about the killer.

Anything can be a throwing weapon, especially from behind.

By the by, got a link to the deputy fark thread? I must have missed it.

What an asshole.

He should have called the police and hid in a closet like the liberal protocol says.

Civilians aren't trained to fight back, and thus shouldn't try to defend themselves.

2014-06-07 08:43:46 PM
Yeah, but if he'd had concealed carry it would have saved us all the expense of a trial and lifetime incarceration for the nutjob.

(concealed carry is probably not an option in Seattle except for government workers and the rich and the criminal underclass)

Not fark, just any news outlet will do. (Yes, I get my news elsewhere to. I am so ashamed.) Here's what CNN has to say about it.

The only thing that can stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with pepper spray

I would venture that that's the kind of thing that takes huge balls and a certain amount of recklessness/disregard for consequences.

Which is weird, because that seems so very out of character for what we know about this guy from TFA.  Puzzling indeed.

// Nice that the internet is being used to make someone's day a little better for once.
 
2014-06-07 08:46:36 PM
And the dude looks like a skinny nerd.

Where were all the jocks?  Pissing their pants, I'll wager.

Mr. Meis, you rock.

That's an interesting getup that they've got Ybarra in.  I thought disposable Tyvek construction overalls were all the rage this year for prison transport, but looks like this guy got the deluxe "we can't trust you to put your own pants on, so we're going to wrap you in a velcro-laced carpet pad and call it good" treatment

Shooter is wearing a "Godsblock Ministries" hoody...wonder how they feel about that...

With the publicity, he could probably do better now.

But it won't be just more guns. It will be like what this kid did with a thing of pepper spray. I think people will be using anything they can get their hands on. I am waiting for the story where a gunman is taken down by the archery team. That will be...something.

Obviously, they will be issuing a memo stating that God doesn't block pepper spray.

Thanks to zero tolerance, it will never happen. Gun free zones? Also bow free zones. For the children, you see.

Imagine if bystanders had concealed carries instead of pepper spray. It's a rare person who will take pepper spray to a gun fight. It worked out in this case, thankfully.

However, takedowns like this would be more common if people had the tools to do it.

Many high schools and colleges have archery teams. I can see a situation where a spree killer attacks on the day an archery team practice was happening and the team fought back.

It certainly would...

It would also be nice if some money went to the family who lost their child to help cover the thousands of dollars in funeral costs. While not begrudging this kid one cent, I wish that was part of this, too.

Bullshiat. farking bullshiat. With pepper spray you can lay on the trigger. You can spray down the shooter and a hostage with pepper spray. You can use pepper spray when unsure of your target.

This is why a "good guy with a gun" is a complete trash argument, you're still going to have to get the perp on the ground in a crowded area when you yourself are probably shaking with fear.

Imagine if every single person had a gun aimed at everyone else all the time. It's right there in the constitution.

Mentalpatient87: So, you're just going to repeatedly stamp your feet and cry "MOAR GUNS MOAR GUNS MOAR GUNS!" like some kind of fool? Adorable.


Actually.

It's questioning what is the cause of violence in our society? The proliferation of guns, or the fact you cannot find a single piece of modern american media where murdering someone is an acceptable way of solving a minor disagreement.

It's a questioning of zero tolerance, and the effect of calling an armed gang who throw flash bangs in infants faces as good, heroic people.

Every time there is an act of mass violence, people complain bitterly about how someone else should DO SOMETHING!

Well what is the something they invariably come up with? Violating the rights of citizens who have done nothing wrong, and unbridled violence.

/It's funny how murderous the party of peace is.
